Working out together also relieves the stress and anxiety of going to the gym alone.

Combine high intensity exercises like kick boxing with low or medium intensity exercises such as walking or jogging. Keeping it fresh will keep you interested as well as helping your body.
Warm Up and Cool Down
A great fitness tip is to not workout when it’s too cold without thoroughly warming up the muscles. When it’s cold, you’re muscles need more time to warm up. If you don’t properly warm your muscles up, you can risk getting seriously injured. Always be sure to warm up thoroughly when it’s cold.
Just as important as warm up is also the “Cool Down“. The reason this is so important is because now the muscles are warm and they are more flexible. By doing stretches after a workout the muscles are looser and much more flexible, so stretching at this time can help with becoming more flexible and also help from getting those muscle cramps afterwards.
