Exercise with friends

For this challenge, we want you to exercise with a friend. When it comes to exercising, having a friend along for the ride can be hugely beneficial, here are a few reasons why…

F U N

If you are busy chatting to a friend, the time with pass quickly and you are less likely to become bored. This may also mean you end up exercising for longer, as you’ll be distracted.

T U R N  U P

Making plans to exercise with someone else, means you are much more likely to stick to the plan. Not wanting to let your friends down is a great motivator.

N E W

Variety is key when sticking to exercise plans, so a friend can introduce you to different ideas, that you haven’t tried before.

M O T I V A T I O N

Not only are you more likely to succeed at your goals while a friend is encouraging you, you are also more likely to push yourself harder, to the best of your ability.

We’d love to hear how you got on with the challenge, find The Running Granny on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
