ant to lose weight and sus­tain a healthier way of life? Do it with oth­ers and you’re more likely to reach your goals, be­cause re­search shows that peo­ple who ex­er­cise and start healthy plans with a buddy are more suc­cess­ful when it comes to stick­ing to it.

Wwants you to suc­ceed, so we’re giv­ing you the chance to lose weight, get healthy and save money. Join to­day with a friend, a part­ner, a sib­ling, or who­ever you like, and save 25 per cent on pro­gram mem­ber­ship fees – pay $149 for two, in­stead of $ 99 per per­son.

Other re­search has re­vealed that par­tic­i­pants who worked out with a part­ner spent more than twice as long on an ex­er­cise bike ( 21.9 min­utes) than those who rode alone (10.6 min­utes).

With di­et­ing, the find­ings are sim­i­lar. Friends and cou­ples who go on a diet to­gether are more likely to slim down to­gether, and main­tain it for longer.

“So grab your sig­nif­i­cant other, best mate, or maybe one of your kids and sign up to

and get the most out of our tried and tested weight loss and ex­er­cise pro­gram,” b+s ed­i­tor Gemma Suther­land says.
