The Ultimate BFF Park Workout

bff5

We all know BIKINI SZN is fast approaching, but with it comes PATIO SZN, ICE CREAM SZN and FOOD TRUCK SZN… amirite? If you know this struggle, then this post is for YOU.

Since gym memberships can be way pricey, FORA decided to gather some park friendly workout moves that won’t $et you back. And since we all know the hardest part of working out is actually getting out the door, we’ve made all the moves partner friendly for that extra motivation. So grab your BFF, put on your cutest workout gear and head to the park to try out some of these FORA-fied workouts!
