Ideally, a partner helps us know our blind spots, encourages us through rough spots, and celebrates with us when things go well. Strong partners can bring out our best, and we can tap into the power of partnerships to help us reach our fitness goals.
Commit to get fit
Beyond an initial resolution to pursue a healthier lifestyle, it is critical that we understand fitness as an everyday pursuit. Sustaining efforts toward fitness until they become a lifestyle is key. Choose a like-minded partner who views fitness as a necessary part of a happy and healthy life.
Encouragement for the road ahead
We all need a kind word or a friendly push from time to time. A partner who understands our goals, who cares about our health, and who wants us to succeed can be just the help we need to keep going. Encouragement can help us get to the gym when we're tired or busy. It can help us resist that platter of sweet treats. Confiding in a partner can help us clarify our problems and consider new solutions.

Keep going and keep it fun
Setbacks, plateaus, and frustrations are normal parts of any change worth making. Be realistic in your goal setting and celebrate the small successes along the way. That said, getting and staying fit need not be a drudgery. Many activities are focused, fun, and designed to mesh well with busy lifestyles.
