Finding The Perfect Fit: Here Are 5 Tips To Stay In Shape With Your Partner!

You’ve heard the saying “Couples who sweat together, stay together”, and if you’re wondering how to start a positive relationship with your partner that’s centered around fitness, we’ve got you! 

Leading an active lifestyle with your partner can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make – research has shown that couples who workout together feel a deeper sense of commitment, intimacy and overall happiness. 

So whether your partner is a gym junkie or just starting, here are 5 ways you can spice up your relationship with fitness! 

Be Each Other’s Best Source Of Motivation

Possibly the best reason for working out with your partner is the fact that you can both be a direct source of motivation around the clock! 

If your partner is new to fitness or perhaps they lose motivation quickly, show them that you are a positive pillar of support by providing constant encouragement when they feel like giving up. 

Whether it is a friendly wake up call to get up early and go for that walk, or a simple gesture like choosing healthy meals and treats together when dining out, you can both be a positive force that can help keep each other in check. 

And because no one knows you better than your partner, it does help that you can show a little tough love when they slip back into their bad habits to give you that extra push!

Set Fitness Goals Together 

You and your partner may have different fitness goals – and that it’s perfectly fine! 

If your goal is to lose body fat while your partner is seeking to gain muscle mass (or vice versa), there are plenty of activities that can achieve both objectives while injecting a ton of fun. 

Ultimately, setting goals together can help you stay accountable for the long run. Because your partner is aware of what your goals are, they will be more understanding when you have to undergo stricter lifestyle changes to achieve them. 

And if you wanna make it a little more interesting, create a fitness challenge between yourselves and add a quirky penalty to keep things fun! After all, everyone loves a little friendly competition! 

Skip The Movies & Try An Active Date Instead 

Speaking of shaking things up, if you find that most of your dates center around sedentary activities like going to the cinema or the spa, why not initiate an active day out instead? 

Besides spending more time and getting a little closer, you’ll both be burning calories at the same time! 

If you reside close to a neighbourhood park, a nice evening walk or run would be the perfect way to start. For couples who love a little more adventure, you can try to go for a hike at a new nature reserve, or try out a cross-island cycling route. 

Who knows, a new sense of adventure might even inspire you to take up outdoor classes like wakeboarding or paddle boarding! 

Nourish Your Relationship With New Experiences

When we think about “milestones” in relationships, often bigger life moments come into mind – your anniversary, first date or even the day you moved into your new home. 

But what if you celebrated fitness milestones together in the same way? 

Starting a fitness journey together will surely bring about plenty of “first-times”: First time out for a walk, first day of working out and so on. 

Celebrating these milestones is also the best way for you and your partner to look back and reminisce on how far you’ve come. It is also a big source of motivation to push you to do better for the next milestone. 

Communication Is Key

Finally, we would encourage you to have open, healthy conversations with your partner throughout your journey. 

Starting a fitness journey with your partner should be a positive, liberating experience and not be the cause of constant riffs and fights. 

When it comes to the right way to communicate, honesty is simply the best policy. If your partner made an insensitive remark about your progress, or perhaps was a little too tough on you for skipping that run, be honest about your feelings. 

It can be tempting to bottle up your emotions and let it all out at once, but it is more important to show your partner that you trust them enough to be honest when they slip up. 

By being honest, you’ll both learn how to best motivate and support each other as you continue your fitness journey in 2021 and beyond!
