When is the last time you went for a walk, took a quick jog, or burnt off some steam in an evening yoga class? Do you incorporate exercise into your daily routine or do you lack the time and motivation to participate in these activities? This month I have a call to action for you! Instead of simply calling your girlfriends to talk about your day, go for a walk and share your stories. Research has shown that exercising with girlfriends not only increases motivation but it also adds a commitment factor. Just like you commit to a lunch date, you can commit to a healthy lifestyle by going for a run together or taking a spin class with your friends. The time you spend together will help you share your stories, update each other on your everyday lives, and improve your health both physically and emotionally. Here are 10 ideas on how to get healthy with your girlfriends this month:

  1. Go for a Walk along a trail or Run the park
  2. Take a Yoga Class at a local gym
  3. Try out a Water Aerobics class
  4. Show off your dancing skills in a Zumba Class
  5. Sign up for a Marathon and Train together
  6. Perfect your inner core in a Pilates Class
  7. Tone your muscles in a Bootcamp Weekend Class
  8. Enjoy a Bicycle Ride up a mountain trail
  9. Swim at a community pool testing out a new swim set
  10. Check out a Martial Arts class to find your inner strength

Overall, the most important goal is to get healthy and be happy with your friends. Exercising together is am amazing way to incorporate connecting with your girlfriends into your daily routine. Maintain these female friendships and maintain your health!
