Couples That Sweat Together, Stay Together
Firm up, gain confidence and engage with your partner by performing popular activities together – both in and out of the gym. Try yoga and Body Pump class together, or tennis doubles and lifting weights at home.
Even if you live in a multi-family unit or a small apartment, be active together. Maybe book a couples’ massage or a ski lesson – we’d love to hear about your Valentine’s Day Couples Workouts.
Exercise, Sex and Your Brain
When you moderately exercise, the release of endorphins – those feel-good hormones or feelings of pleasure that are created and released in your brain – help create the surefire recipe for a superior love life.
Exercise produces chemicals in the brain that evoke feelings of happiness, reduce stress, and also increase arousal. Several studies show that men and women who exercise together regularly do report better (and more frequent) sex with their partners.
Maybe take a dance class together or join a gym and share a personal trainer. Go easy, but go together as a couple who might move mountains – together.
One of the best things about exercising at the gym or using home exercise equipment side-by-side is that you really do not have to be performing the same activities to get the physical jolt of being together. You do not have to be have to be at the same fitness level to participate in effective couples workouts, according to studies.
