The First Family Sets an Example

In a 60 Minutes interview that aired on March 22, 2009, President Obama revealed that he and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, share morning workouts on most mornings during the week at 7 am after the girls have left for school. Afterwards, they have breakfast together.

One thing that I always suggest to my clients is that they find a workout partner. It doesn't matter if your partner is your husband, boyfriend, neighbor, coworker or dog, you will be more likely to stick with your workout routine if you know that your workout buddy is waiting (and depending) on you.

If you can not find a reliable workout partner among your current set of friends, try joining a group on or posting an ad on Craigslist. (I personally believe that you can find anything that your heart desires on Cragislist.) You can even mention it on your Facebook or Twitter status and see who is interested.

Just make sure that the buddy you choose is just as motivated to change their life as you are.

Who is your workout buddy?
