Couples That Sweat Together, Stay Together

While we all know how great exercise is for us, it turns out there’s even more benefits if you get your sweat on with your sweetie.  Check out all these ways you can improve your health and your relationship at the same time.

Boosts Your Happiness

Cue the endorphins!  While exercising solo can also boost your mood, exercising with your partner can make it even more enjoyable.  What’s so great about this?  It can deepen your connection and also make you more likely to work out together again.

Reduces Stress

There’s nothing quite like a workout for burning off some stress.  Since stress levels can have a huge impact on your relationship and communication with your partner, reducing stress together is a great way to ensure you’re both feeling your best.

Makes You Work Harder

When you make a plan to work out together, you’re much more likely to stick to it.  Research has also shown that working out with a partner can help you work harder and faster – with some studies even showing that it can double your performance!

Increases Attraction

You’re sweating and your hearts are pounding – together.  It turns out that working out as a couple can help boost attraction and can even cross over into your sex life.

Boosts Motivation

There’s something about working together towards a common goal that helps increase your ability to work together and communicate, boosting your motivation both inside the gym and out.

You’ll Spend More Time Together

No more feeling guilty about heading to a yoga class while your partner stays home!  Getting fit together means you can spend more time together and enjoy each other’s company while also getting your workout in.

Try New Things

Are you into Pilates while your partner sticks to running?  Turns out you’ll both benefit.  While having your own workouts can be great, trying out your partner’s routine is a great way to experience new things and gain well-rounded fitness.
