Honoring those who love to team up and sweat, Women's Health will be hosting 11 back-to-back virtual workouts every hour from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET on their Instagram Live platform. The classes, including a variety of exercise formats from dance cardio and Pilates to strength training and stretching, will feature instruction from some of the fitness world's best and brightest trainers. Anyone, anywhere in the country is invited to participate and recruit a buddy to join in on the fun.

In addition to free class access, readers are encouraged to post a picture with their workout buddy on Instagram using the hashtag #NationalWorkoutBuddyDay. Women's Health will repost user-generated content throughout the day.

"There are so many benefits to working out with a buddy, especially now as a way to stay connected in today's very virtual world," says Women's Health Editor-in-Chief Liz Plosser. "For starters, working out with a partner keeps you accountable. We found that people who undertook a year-long workout program as a pair had only a 6% dropout rate, compared with 43% for solo sweaters. Group workouts have also been proven to lower stress by 26% and improve overall quality of life. Bottom line: Not only will you have fun and score awesome results physically, but you'll strengthen your bond with a friend."

The full schedule of classes can be found below and on WomensHealthMag.com.
