Go for a run together
Cardio is better for the company, and running is the best exercise that can be done together. You can set goals for each other or challenge each other for the workout. Morning walk or running is the best workout you can opt for. Even if you are feeling lazy to wake up, your partner can motivate you for the same.
Swimming is the perfect, low-impact workout for you and your partner. If you are looking for an aerobic exercise, you can always go swimming. You can set fitness goals for yourself and your partner and work together towards it. This will help you and your partner stay fit, that’s what every partner want for each other.
The word ‘yoga’ means union in Sanskrit, and this is exactly what working out aims to achieve, a uniting of two people. Couple yoga brings people together through movement, play, breath, touch and most importantly through intimacy. It is also a fact that working out releases happy hormones like endorphins and dopamine in the brain and that helps you in relieving stress.
Apart from traditional exercises, you can also go for fun workouts such as salsa dance lessons. Salsa is an intimate couple dance that will help you and your partner come closer apart from losing some kilos. When you are working out together, you are spending more time with each other together, thus there is no room for communication gap.
