10 Ways to Exercise the Buddy System

It’s been proven that working out with a bud is extra beneficial. We’ve got 10 fun (and free!) ways for you and your BFF to see results.

1. Create a Racket.
Buy some inexpensive used gear, grab your BFF, then take out your frustrations by whacking the ball around on free, local tennis courts. Aces!
2. Drill It.
If you two are on a team together, bust out your toughest sport-specific drills. By the time tryouts come around, you’ll be golden.
3. Get a Goal.
Find a mini-triathlon in your area, and start biking, swimming and jogging now. Bonus: Raise moolah for your fave charity along the way.
4. Get Over Obstacles. 
Set up a crazy obstacle course using cones in your yard and jump, run, play catch and have a blast while you get in a great workout.
5. Wake-up Call. 
The next time you crash at your bestie’s house, tote a yoga mat along. Sun salutations will start your Saturday off on the right foot.
6. Host a Dance Off.
Borrow a Zumba DVD from the library and learn to shake it. Crank the music and you’ll forget you’re actually breaking a sweat. 
7. Laugh It Off. 
There’s nothing better than doing a wacky fitness video with your girls. Hideous outfits are mandatory! Promise you won’t take camera phone pics (even though they’d be hilarious!).
8. Power Up Your Weekend.
If your babes are crazy-busy during the week, pen in a power hour for
Sundays. Do a half-hour of cardio, and then a strength circuit. Bonus points if you can add another session during the week.
9. Become Pro Dog Walkers.
It takes major energy to wrangle a pack of pups, so let neighbors know you can walk dogs on weekends, and bark up some business.
10. Hold a Sprint-a-thon.
Head to the high school track and warm up with a lap. Then, alternate between sprinting and walking for 100 yards a pop. Start with a couple laps and build from there.
