4 Benefits of Working Out as a Couple
While watching your partner get sweaty and gross at the gym may not be your first idea of a romantic activity, couples who work out together have much more fun than those who go it alone.
Not only are couples’ workouts a great way to build the bond between you and your significant other, they also help you look good and feel great, which can increase the passion in your relationship.
Here are four other benefits to working out as a couple:
1. A Spiced-Up Routine
One of the main reasons people give up on working out alone is because it becomes a monotonous task after a while. Working out as a couple adds fun and excitement to the routine and transforms it from a chore you have to do to an event you can’t help but enjoy. It’s still important, however, to keep things fresh with new workouts and exercise regimens. That’s where a personal trainer comes in. Personal trainers not only have countless exercises you can do at the studio or together at home, they also can serve as your personal third-party fun coordinator when it comes to the workout itself. Your trainer will undoubtedly push you to your limits but in a way that strengthens the bond between you and your partner.
2. Motivation and Accountability
Finding the dedication and motivation to work out is an arduous task, especially when you do it alone. On the days you’re feeling down and sluggish and don’t want to work out, your partner can build up your motivation and ensure you make it to the gym and work toward your goals.
Working out with a partner helps keep both of you accountable. If you tell your partner you don’t want to work out, the chances that they let you blow it off aren’t very high. You also don’t want to let your partner down, so you’re more likely to show up and work hard when you’re invested in each other’s success.
3. A Stronger Bond
One of the best parts about working out as a couple is the bond it builds between you and your partner. After all, nothing says “I trust you” like having someone keep you from dropping a barbell on your chest.
Aside from building trust, couples’ workouts are fun activities that can help you and your partner set and meet goals together. Whether you’re new to working out or you’ve been doing it for years, spending quality time with your partner and improving yourselves together is an incredible feeling.
4. Those Exciting Endorphins
While endorphins are released whether you work out alone or as a pair, more endorphins will be released when you’re with a partner. Why? You tend to smile more, which is an endorphin-releasing activity all its own. This elevation of mood is not only good for your fitness level (since you tend to enjoy the workouts more), it also has a positive, long-term impact on your relationship with your significant other outside the studio as well. Being happy together keeps you together.
