New study shows that you will be healthier if you date someone who works out

There is a new saying that goes thus, a couple who works out together, stay together. Turns out this is in fact true according to research.

Apart from the normal reasons why people date fit people, to have a hot significant other, and work out together, science has added a new one, health.

According to a new study, people whose significant others work out are more likely to become healthier themselves.

The study, which was conducted by Tel Aviv University Sackler Faculty of Medicine’s Dr. Silvia Koton in conjunction with colleagues from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, found wives who exercise at “socially acceptable levels” are 70 percent more likely to influence their husbands to work out at socially acceptable levels, too, and wives are 40 percent more likely to work out if their husbands are active.

Elitedaily says the study is based on research that began tracking middle-aged adults in 1987, the results were presented in March at the American Heart Association’s EPI/Lifestyle 2015 Scientific Sessions in Baltimore.
