London: People are more likely to stick to their fitness goals if they workout in groups, according to a study published in the International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care.

The study was published after Anglia Ruskin University conducted a research on 18 physically healthy adults walking in groups and compared them to those who either walk alone or do not walk.

 

The results showed that those who conducted workout sessions in the group continued with it even after six months.

The World Health Organization also recommends that adults must undertake 150 minutes of moderate aerobic physical activity per week.

Professor Catherine Meads of Anglia Ruskin University said, "Walking in groups is a safe and inexpensive intervention that can be delivered easily and successfully in the community.'
