Planning to lose weight and stay fit? Why not get your friends to join you in your endeavour? Not only will you be enjoying each other’s company when exercising, but you can also monitor and guide each other in completing your weight goals.
Here are a few group exercise activities that you can choose from:
Biking Trips – What can be a better way of burning calories and relieving the tension of the day than taking a biking trip with friends? Just visit a reputable bike shop with your friends and purchase sturdy bicycles meant for long trips. Your group can agree on a specific colour or design theme for your bicycles, helmets or sports outfits for easy identification when going through usual bike routes, says The Yellow Jersey Bike Shop.
Dance Sessions – Zumba is all the rage, but there’s Bokwa and BUTI and Broadway Bodies. All of these exercise routines include dance and choreography that burn away fat, while teaching you to move your body to the rhythm and just have fun. Even if your friends have two left feet, but want to learn how to dance and just have a great time, then this is the best group exercise option to choose.
Self-Defence Routines – Perfect for fighters or anyone enthusiastic about learning self-defence, these exercise regimens can keep you fit and fierce. There are the typical exercises that include dance with martial arts moves but your group can also enrol in an actual self-defence or martial arts class and still burn calories. You also get to work with each other since these sessions usually require a buddy.
As one popular song says, “You get by with a little help from your friends”. But, you’d like to get fit and healthy, having your friends motivate, encourage and stay with you throughout your exercise regimen is one of the best ways to keep at it. You also get to enjoy yourselves while keeping the friendship strong, which is one of the best perks you can get other than a beautiful body.
