Celebrity besties like Reese Witherspoon and Naomi Watts have paired up to practice yoga together and we wholeheartedly applaud them. Working out with a pal is a great way to stay motivated, achieve your fitness goals and most importantly, make working out fun.
So do as the stars do and schedule a workout date with your bestie:
1. You’ll get fit faster
Don’t worry if your workout buddy is in better shape than you. Working out with someone who’s at a higher fitness level than you can cause you to push yourself harder, meaning you’ll see results faster. According to a small 2012 study, published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine, college women performed better on aerobic tasks, like bike riding, when they were told stopping early would hurt their partner’s performance.
