Trust us on this one: Having a workout buddy not only makes workouts more fun, but also helps you push yourself harder. Just take a look at one of the more notable fitness partners-in-crime in the Philippines, father-and-son Piolo and Iñigo Pascual...
Though it was only when Iñigo turned 18 that Piolo allowed him to start working out (Piolo wants Iñigo to maximize his growth spurt first and working out stunts that), his now bonding activity with his dad has definitely been worth the wait. They have mini workout challenges, like this one featuring situps:
They also challenged each other to see who has a stronger upper body and core:
And have endurance checks by joining marathons.
And they also put their physical strength to the test by biking through a rough and tough terrain.
"It's a perfect time to bond and talk na rin because we get to wake up early, train early, and play together," says Piolo of the best thing about working out with his son.
Check out Piolo’s interview in Magandang Buhay to get ideas on how to be workout BFFs with your mom, dad, son, or daughter:
