Communal exercise ‘might help with weight loss’

Communal exercise might offer a solution to people who are looking to lower their weight, according to one firm.

Women who follow exercise regimes with friends could lose as much as ten pounds on average, according to survey results published by Diamond.

However, no pounds are lost by 20 per cent of those who exercise solo, the firm’s research also suggested.

“The research shows those women who exercise with a friend have more luck at maintaining a healthy weight, even losing a few pounds in the process,” stated Sian Lewis, Diamond’s managing director.

Women can improve their friendships with each other by exercising together, according to 56 per cent of those queried by the company.

When it comes to healthy eating, people were recently encouraged to focus on the importance of a good diet by Loughborough University professor of sport and exercise nutrition, Ron Maughan, despite the World Cup.
