What’s the best way to increase the amount of exercise you do?

What’s the best way to increase the amount of exercise you do? Should you exercise with a group of supportive friends, or should you rather look for healthy competition? The answer may surprise you.

It turns out that giving people such support may, in fact, make them go to gym less than they would if they were simply left to their own devices.
