Any exercise tips for that all you skinny hammockers???

two of mine tried it out.
She now wants to go on any and all camping, canoeing trips we go on because
a hammock is comfortable and tents are not... see tents and uncomfy nights
have been keeping her away from enjoying the outdoors for years...
