Heart-Pumping Partner Workout Perfect for Swolemates

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with your family, friends, and swolemates by tackling this partner workout! Not only is exercising with a partner more fun, but it can help make you feel more accountable, motivated, and even help you get to your goals faster.

The Benefits of a Workout Partner

  • If you schedule a time to meet with your workout partner, you’re less likely to cancel!
  • Friends can provide that extra boost of motivation, competition, laughter, and encouragement. One study in particular suggests that people enjoy physical activity more when they’re with their friends.
  • Buddies can teach you new moves, including challenging partner exercises that require compound movements so you, and your body, don’t get stuck in a rut.

But enough of that. You already know your swolemate is great! So put down that box of chocolates and join our favorite set of Anytime Fitness twins, Amanda and Anna, for this heart-pumping partner workout.
