Just by bringing along a friend, you can make your cardio workout that much more fun. There are many ways to incorporate family and friends into your workout routine. One popular option, especially if you have children, is using the Wii sports programs. Want to get outside? Why not a bike ride, inline skating, or hiking. Down at the beach? Try beach volleyball, sand frisbee, or body-surfing. Have a competitive streak? Squash, racquetball, or tennis can be great cardio workouts. Even if you are going for a run in the neighborhood having a friend along can eliminate boredom, provide distraction, and/or allow you to see a different perspective. Just think, you may even be helping someone reach a goal.
