5 Ways to Get Fit With Your Friends and Family

Get on the fast track to fitness with friends, family and fantastic deals



As your trip to the local gym or a scroll through the good ol’ ‘gram can likely tell you, there are different kinds of workout junkies out there. There are the early risers who like getting their endorphin fix first thing in the morning. There are the night owls who bust the day’s stress at a boxing session or ride it out on a bike. There are those who take advantage of their five-minute breaks to snap their perfectly angled, not-so-candid gym selfies, and there are those who prefer to keep their workouts far away from the surveilling eyes of social media.


No matter what kind of gym-goer or adrenaline-chaser you might be, one thing’s for sure: workouts are always more fun—and often, more effective—when enjoyed with company. Having a companion to motivate you, challenge you or even make mistakes right beside you can make immense improvements to your performance, or even better, your confidence. 


If you haven’t tried tagging a friend or family member along for your regular workouts, consider extending an invite to these group-friendly workout spots.
