Those who work out together, stay together ;) Karena and I see our exercise time as quality time spent with each other. And sometimes going for a run with your bestie is much more entertaining than hitting the pavement on your own. Social fitness is one of the best things you can do to up your health goals too. A聽study聽found that if you link your workout schedule with a pal, you鈥檙e more likely to stick to it. #perf

Check out our top three reasons why you should text your bestie about聽tomorrow鈥檚聽workout right now!


1. Up your attendance.聽Sync your morning routine with a friend or coworker to maintain your #fitgoals! It鈥檚 much easier to bail on a workout when you鈥檙e just showing up for yourself. We like to recruit a family member or pal to stay accountable. Having someone meet you for a morning class or jog will help stop you from hitting that snooze button in the mornin鈥.

2. Lift your mood while toning.聽Every workout, Karena and I are constantly breaking out into laughter! When you鈥檙e exercising with a pal, laughing is inevitable. It鈥檚 just what happens when besties get together! ;) One聽study聽even found that laughter can increase endorphins and make the workout seem easier than it is. And guess what? You鈥檙e toning all the muscles of your waistline when you laugh! Toned abs AND a good time? Sign us up!

3. Brunch, duh.聽Every workout is automatically better with a little brunch after. Even if you and your girl are in a hurry, put aside 10 minutes to grab a juice or make a聽Perfect Fit Smoothie聽with your gal pal. Not only does it provide extra incentive to push yourself (and your friend!)聽during the workout, but it also eases you into the day. If your workout lands on a weekend, head to a local healthy breakfast joint and reward yourselves with some bomb brekky and an almond milk latte!


Let鈥檚 do this! Classes like cycling, yoga, boot camp, barre or whatever else you and your bestie love to do are great options. Just make sure it fits both of your schedules. Want to work out in the comfort of your own home or office? Try聽Burn It Up HIIT! You鈥檒l rev your metabolism while toning your entire bod. Or take it to the next level with any of our聽BODY LOVE聽workouts! They鈥檙e seriously amazing for sculpting every inch of your legs, booty, core, back and arms.
