Exercise SHOULD be fun. At least some of it. When I look at designing workouts for my Fit Fun Bootcamps, MamaTone, and various DVD programs, I try my best to add some sort of element of fun.
This morning myself and my 12 trainers kicked off our outdoor bootcamp season. I forgot how amazing it feels to workout in the great outdoors. We had some light mist and fog to deal with today, it had a “magical” feel at 5:30 AM 🙂
One way to make working out fun is to do exercises that require two people. I have spoke many times about the power of a support team, but when you have someone else there to encourage you and to make things a little more difficult, you tend to work harder and laugh more.
Here is a video I filmed with two busy moms. Each have had 5 kids, so please no excuses about not being able to get shape after kids, or finding the time. You can read Jody’s full story in my book Fit Moms For Life: How to Have Endless Energy To Outplay Your Kids.
These 3 exercises can be done with another girl friend, your kids, or a significant other. Try them out this week, and I bet you will share a few laughs and break a sweat. 🙂
If you enjoyed these partner exercises, you would LOVE my 4 DVD set titled Ultimate Buddy Bootcamp. These DVDs combine some of my favorite partner exercises and workouts that we do in bootcamp but allows you to do them from the comfort of your own home. These DVDs are designed to be done in partners, so grab a friend or a loved one and get your hands on these DVDs. 🙂
