Working Out Together

Working Out Together

By Je’von Hutchison

A good work out doesn’t require much more than comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely, a decent pair of sneakers, and the courage to take that first step. Some reasons people struggle are that they say “I don’t have enough time,” others struggle finding the motivation to continue, while some feel they don’t have all they need to be successful.

Sydney and I decided to do a variety of exercises on a grass field to show being fit requires little to no equipment, no money is needed for a gym membership, and you can have fun doing it.

Having a partner to exercise with can increase motivation to show up and complete a workout.

When you have a workout partner time goes by a lot faster, you have someone there to push you when it gets hard, and someone to celebrate your successes. This positive reinforcement can even improve the overall quality of your workout.

So call a friend to plan your next workout session together!
