Help Someone Get Into the Fitness Habit

 The More The Merrier — Help a Friend/Co-Worker/Relative Get Started

By Olympian Jeff Galloway, founder of Phidippides

“Now’s a great time to help someone get into a fitness habit.  Both of you will benefit.  Not only will you help him/her to manage attitude, improve vitality, release stress and think more clearly, but studies show that helping others bestows a boost to the immune system. Even if the exerciser doesn’t lose an ounce, there is an enhancement to the spirit that improves the quality of life for both of you.

When tense, stressed or un-motivated family members or co-workers exercise, they tend to be more positive and more humane afterward. Do you want your kids to do their best in school? Studies show that kids who exercise regularly do better in school and in life. Here are a few tips that have helped to improve motivation and success.”
