Celebrate a Fit and Healthy Valentine’s Day
February 5, 2018
Couples Who Exercise Together
Get strong and confident and engage with a partner, friend or family member by celebrating a special Valentine’s Day this year.
At the gym, you might try hot yoga and Body Pump classes together, or make a pact with your significant other to experiment with a new sport or exercise workshop once a month – and always together. Studies show, after all, that romantic couples that exercise together are generally happier in the relationship and more attracted to their partner.
At home, fit couples might set up cardio circuit training stations with weights and a treadmill or a stationary bike. Interestingly, research also shows that if you improve your own workout consistency, your sweetheart is 50 percent more likely to do the same. (That is a surefire recipe for a happier love life.)
Smart Workouts for Valentine’s Day
When you exercise, the release of endorphins, those feel-good hormones or feelings of pleasure that you release (in your brain) may create the perfect chemical mix for a vibrant and enriching love life.
Firm Up and Maintain Exercise Motivation
– Take a golf or ski lesson from a pro
– Hire a personal trainer for two for one month of workouts
– Convert your dirty garage into a dreamy home gym
– Start a detox and diet together to support your exercise efforts
