Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you have any plans for this special day? Instead of binge-eating chocolates or shopping during Valentine’s Day sales, why not crush a workout session? Who knows? You might meet your next boyfriend/girlfriend there. For those who already have a loved one, why not celebrate this year’s V Day in a different way?
Couples who sweat together, stay together! Check out why you should find someone who loves fitness as much you do and the benefits of working out with your partner.
Similar value and lifestyle
First of all, the person shares your love for fitness and passion for life. The key to a stable and long-lasting relationship is all about finding someone that can share your interests and values. Knowing the man/woman you love has the same goal as you – to stay active, have a positive body image and embrace positive vibes in life. This brings a great sense of security and makes your relationship stronger in the long run. Not to mention that you both have similar lifestyles, which makes the daily routine planning and grocery shopping a lot easier. And no matter how busy a day gets, at least you will spend quality workout time together!
Achieve fitness goals
It’s not easy to win this fitness battle, even the most determined person can get tired and slack off sometimes. However, a partner can drag you to the gym on a Sunday morning and encourage you to consume more nutrient-dense food. When you have someone who loves and cares about you in this fitness journey together, the extra love and support can also bring extra motivation. When you set goals, you are setting goals as a team!
It seems that the first three months of a relationship are the best, as that’s when a couple falls crazily in love with each other and everything is fresh and exciting! But what happens after that? When the passion slowly fades away and the daily routine seems like a drag, the relationship is at risk! It is not the same case with a fitness-loving partner. Whether it’s couple boxing, couple yoga or simply motivating each other during the workout, you will never run out of fun activities to do as a couple. Feeling bored? Try out some new studios together! Got into an argument? Hit the gym to let out some steam!
Look awesome together
There are thousands of ways to post on social media to declare your love for each other. The coolest way? Pictures of your amazing bodies or your workout photos. Diamonds and rings are easily forgettable, but your amazing booties and his awesome abs will be memorable! It’s already so cool to post fitness pictures on social media! If you post it with your kickass boyfriend/girlfriend? You will get so many likes! It’s not so much about showing off, but show others the cool activities you do as a couple and motivate others to do the same!
A cool gang
If you are dating a person who enjoys the gym and healthy food, chances are his/her friends have the same interests as well. That means you get to hang out with a whole group of people who can do cool stuff with you. You will not be the only crazy person who runs 10k in the morning. You will have the best post-workout meal full of proteins to enjoy during bunch with those “hungry beasts”. These health-conscious people will tell you about the latest diet to try and the coolest workout you can’t miss. Want to hang out with the cool kids? Find yourself a cool partner first!
Spread the love and enjoy the health!
