So you have decided to workout with your better half. So many times I see couples at the gym, but they are always doing different exercises, or one is hitting the weights and the other is on the treadmill. Well it’s time to change.
You can join a group class like salsa dancing or yoga. Do cardio side-by-side at the gym by choosing to machines beside each other. Get outside and run together. When in the gym, workout together, spotting each other, and switch between sets. Stretch together, it has been shown that assisted stretching can be beneficial. Pick some outside hobbies like canoeing, rock climbing or tossing the football around.
There are a plenty of reasons to workout together.
5. Sexual Desire - Exercise produces chemicals in the brain that evoke feelings of happiness, reduce stress, and also increase arousal and libido. Several studies show that men and women who exercise regularly report better (and more frequent) sex with their partners.
6. Respect and Pride - Taking care of your body and your health shows the person you care about that you want to be your best for them—and that you want to be around for years to come.
With these tips, you and your partner can spend quality time together while you stay on track with reaching your fitness goals.
