  • I think children make the best workout buddies. When working out with my son, we get to spend time together that is productive and beneficial for the both of us. - by RUTGERSM0M
    Debbie, I love that your work out buddy is your daughter. My 16 year old daughter just returned from a month at a camp that was focused on lots of outdoor activities and nutrition. She returned from camp a different girl -- trimmer, fitter, more confident. She is what inspired me to try getting healthier again. And it is fun planning healthy meals and walking together. Keep it up, there is so much to gain by working out with your daughter! emoticon - by KRISTEVEN1
