Picture this: You’re lying in bed, sleeping peacefully, when your alarm blasts and rips you out of dreamland. You roll over groggily and hit snooze. It’s 6 a.m. You’d planned to go to the gym before work today…but you’re so tired. Who cares if I skip? you think.

You vow to go tomorrow, then snuggle under the covers. Now imagine the same scenario, but you’ve made a plan to meet someone. Not flaking now, huh? In fact, you might even realize you’re looking forward to catching up with her—and, of course, doing your workout.

That’s the power of a partner. And the benefits extend beyond the momentary accountability check: People who undertook a yearlong workout program in a pair had only a 6 percent dropout rate, compared with 43 percent for solo sweaters, a study found. (Whoa.) Sweating with a fit friend IRL is awesome, but there are other ways to embrace fitness-ships. No matter who, what, when, or where you team up, you’ll both score major results and strengthen your bond. Win-win, win-win.

Here’s how to make the most of any situation

1. Turn your long-distance bestie into your workout bud.

2. Find an app that feels like a faux bestie.

3. Make your pooch your fitness partner.

4. Find another four-legged friend.

5. Sweat with colleagues instead of scheduling a coffee catch up.

6. Get busy (in the gym) with your significant other.

7. Recruit all your buds for one big workout fest.
