Fun Partner Workouts for You and Your Fitness Buddy
Here are 5 workouts that you can try with a buddy and keep each other motivated!

Exercise is great for our mental and physical health, but sometimes it’s challenging to stay motivated. That is why exercising with a friend can be helpful! Working out with an exercise buddy is not only an opportunity to try creative workouts but also help to keep us motivated and push us to work harder. Here are 3 simple tips to get your buddy workout started:

1.         Have a mini competition by setting a goal with your partner and see who can run faster or carry heavier weights. This encourages both of you to keep up to your workouts!

2.        Stay accountable by doing short workouts together daily; try challenging one another to 20 push ups a day, then progressing it to 50 push ups and so on. You could also explore places by cycling or doing runs together while encouraging each other to press on at the same time.

3.         Be creative by incorporating harder variation of workouts to your usual routine – adding variety adds fun to your workout together!
