Strategy: You exercise with a friend that helps hold you accountable and make you more likely to show up.
How it can backfire: While your gym buddy may help you show up for your workout, exercising with a friend who likes to gossip more than she likes to hit the weights, run the laps, or do the work, might not do you much good.
