Better Together: 5 Fun Activities You Should Try with Your Friends
Ready to score a fitness win-win with your buddies?
Keeping active may seem like a chore when you fly solo, but thankfully there are plenty of group activities that make developing the habit a lot easier.
There is indeed a strength in numbers: It’s proven that working out with a partner or several friends helps to keep you committed to your fitness goals. Researchers at the University of Aberdeen found that “finding a new exercise companion increased the amount of exercise people took. This was increased even more when the new partner was emotionally supportive.”
