There are weeks when we all find ourselves too busy to keep a steady workout schedule, or too tired to get motivated. Luckily, we have found a secret to staying fit when this happens; we turn to the best people around- our friends!
Working out with a friend is by far the best way to get motivated, and to stay motivated. Growing up, having a twin made us super lucky—we always had a built in workout buddy (plus, in our case, the thought of one twin getting faster than the other wouldn’t have settled well with the one dragging up the rear, so the competition kept us motivated!
A running partner keeps you going, pushes you to keep running when you think you don’t have it in you. You can keep pace with each other, and catch up at the same time! Even if you’re exhausted and only feel like walking- a 2 hour walk feels like 5 minutes when you’re in the middle of a deep conversation with your best friend. We realize now that several of our friends are reading this and realizing how much they have helped us to get our exercise in during hectic weeks, thank you!
When life is hectic and you haven’t seen your friends in a while, you can spend time while breaking a sweat! This is why you’ll often find us exercising in Central Park with friends during the weekend brunch hours!
