I started a fitness class this morning with a good buddy of mine. We've been friends for almost 17 years now. Oh yeah, and she's also my daughter. I've also signed up for another class with some of my co-workers. The buddy system really helps with motivation. On any given day you might not feel like going to lift weights or pedal on a stationary bike, but when someone you work with is standing in your cubicle saying it's time to head to class, it's a lot harder to say "No, I'm going to be lazy today."
