If you are an exercise and physical workout freeze, this is going to prompt your spouse too to take to the exercise. The study has been conducted by researchers associated with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

To be true, this is not the first time when this has been revealed. A previous study too had suggested that spouse who work out regularly together are more likely to keep up their exercise schedule for a very long period compared to the people who do it alone.

While talking about the findings the study co-author Laura Cobb says, “When it comes to physical fitness, the best peer pressure to get moving could be coming from the person who sits across from you at the breakfast table…There’s an epidemic of people in this country who don’t get enough exercise…and we should harness the power of the couple to ensure people are getting a healthy amount of physical activity.” The latest study has been published in the journal EurekAlert.

OUTDOOR EXERCISEThe study is backed with large-scale database and researchers analyzed records that began in 1987 and followed a group of over fifteen thousand middle-aged adults from communities across Maryland, Mississippi, Minnesota and North Carolina.

While analyzing the data researchers realized to their amazement that a husband was more likely to take up physical exercise if his wife had met the recommended levels of exercise upon the first visit. This is also true when a husband actually meets the recommended levels of physical guidelines his wife was more likely to meet the recommend levels at subsequent visits.

It is needless to say that researchers are very excited with the findings. “We all know how important exercise is to staying healthy. This study tells us that one spouse could have a really positive impact on the other when it comes to staying fit and healthy for the long haul”, says Cobb.
