Do not look for a personal trainer, state-of-the-art gym or weight-loss treatment if you want to shed those extra kilos around your belly. Just follow the footsteps of your exercise-loving partner and enhance your fitness levels!According to lead investigator Laura Cobb from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and co-author Silvia Koton from the Tel Aviv University's Sackler Faculty of Medicine, if one spouse improves his or her exercise regimen, the other spouse is much more likely to follow suit.
"The study tells that spouses can have a positive impact on one another in terms of staying fit and healthy over time," Koton said.They found that when a wife met recommended levels of exercise at the first visit, her husband was 70 percent more likely to meet those levels at subsequent visits than those whose wives were less physically active.Likewise, when a husband met recommended exercise levels, his wife was 40 percent more likely to meet the levels at follow-up visits.
