6 Weekend Group Activities To Get You And Your Gang Moving

You are a ready-made team of players. A support squad.

The key to making exercise feel like fun. After all, exciting things to do with friends make for the best memories.

So get moving, make your team official, and knock your hangouts out of the park with some energetic weekend activities.

1 Start a running club

Why train solo when you could be outpacing your friends? The road is nature’s gym and running is better in numbers. There’s no need to pay for an expensive gym membership – get your friends involved and get moving. Make one day run day. For 30 minutes. Every week. Last person to the finish line buys the pizza!

2 Pick up your racket

There are plenty of fun things to do with a group of friends, but great weekend activities to do in pairs, too – like tennis. Few things come close to the intensity of a good game. You could try getting your group involved in a tournament. Whatever the outcome, it’s your body that’s the real winner.

3 Join the team

Sunday sport doesn’t have to begin and end with lapping the local park. Think of fun ideas to do with friends, instead. Activities like ultimate frisbee and flag football are novel ways to work up a sweat with a group of people. All you need is some willing participants and the weather on your side.

4 Swap the screen for the stars

Binge-watching TV can be the best part of the week. But why not swap a sofa session for something more experiential? A beach trip beats a night inside. Camping under the stars, no matter how relaxing, means a lot of walking before settling in. With so many screens around, unplugging is a rare treat.

5 Choose two wheels

Hop in the saddle. Whether you want the exhilaration of a fast descent or an easy ride, savor the time spent together out on bikes. Whatever your destination, know you’re protected all day. Degree Men UltraClear Black+White Fresh Antiperspirant Deodorant or Degree Women UltraClear Black+White Pure Clean Antiperspirant Deodorant will keep you dry on the road without leaving stains on your clothes.

6 Embrace the outdoors

The great outdoors is good for body and mind, so jump right in. Trail running – jogging and hiking over muddy off-road trails – challenges your body more than regular running. The uneven terrain kicks your core into action as you and your friends power on. Find the best route and challenge yourself!
