If you're feeling demotivated, why not try working out with a friend like Nicole Richie and Ashley Greene or Gwyneth and Madonna (pictured) do. The lovely team at Shock Absorber invited me to try their new Mateivator Workout a regime to be done at home with a friend - easy! Or so I thought. Kitted out in a new Shock Absorber sports bra (it's the only brand I wear) I met with fitness trainer Elise Lindsay (who masterminded the workout) and the other willing participants. Once paired up, we started with a warm-up then moved onto various exercises from boxing (with gloves and pads) and squats incorporating a rather heavy medicine ball, to sit-ups (still with the pesky ball) and bicep/tricep exercises using weights. By the time we came to the cool-down I was worn out and aching - I don't normally ache until the day after a workout! It's a great idea to workout with a friend especially if you are both motivated to get fit.
