7 Fun Tips for Working out as a Couple ...


Working out as a couple can get you both fit, while bringing you closer together.

Some people enjoy the feeling a workout provides.

But for others, like me, it can be a chore to roll out of bed and hit the gym.

That’s why I have fun ways to burn calories while spending time with your favorite person.

Working out as a couple is a sure-fire way to keep your body — and relationship — healthy.

1. Have Mini Competitions

Race around the block or see who can do the most pushups.

Have mini competitions throughout the day to keep yourselves active.2

For extra incentive, come up with a prize for the winner.

The loser can pay for the next meal or will be forced to do the grocery shopping.

Be competitive in the moment, but don’t forget to kiss your man after you beat him.

These small competitions are one of my favorite tips for working out as a couple.

2. Watch TV

If you’re addicted to television like me (I’m currently catching up on Breaking Bad), you should put your TV marathons to use.

Do pushups and jumping jacks and anything else you can while watching your favorite show.

Or set up a routine: 10 pushups every time Jesse curses and 20 sit-ups when Walt coughs.

During the commercials, you can chat with your man about the episode.

Just keep your body moving as you watch TV.

3. Play Frisbee

Go to the park or your own backyard to play Frisbee or any other two player sport.

Pick something you both enjoy so that the activity stays lighthearted.

Set a goal for the day or just keep playing until you’re both worn out.2

When you’re done, have a healthy picnic.

You’ll have time to chat and can challenge one another to a rematch once you’re done.
