Couples who train together, stay together. Isn’t that how the old saying goes? Well, working out with your better half can translate into both fitness and relationship gains. Read on to find out, starting with this one:
1. High Motivation to work out
We’ve all noticed it. Gyms in Kampala are packed in January but become almost empty by March. And it’s no secret because one of the hardest parts about working out is sticking with it for the long term. The tiniest of things get in the way and pretty soon three weeks have passed without going to the gym. All this can be prevent by your sweetie heart though.
Having your significant other on the same workout schedule can act as a great motivator to sustain your workout regime. This is so because bailing out of the workout means you’re not only letting down yourself, but someone you care about too.
2. You’ll accomplish many goals together.
There’s nothing sweeter and more satisfying than accomplishing a challenge with your better half by your side. Exercising is a challenge and pushing your physical body to the limit in order to achieve your fitness goal along side your partner is a gift to treasure. Besides, when you accomplish fitness goals together, you’ll build up each other’s self-esteem and confidence to keep working toward other goals.
3. You’ll become a source of inspiration
When other people see couples working out together, they tend to admire their dedication to the workout and to each other. In a way, this can inspire other couples to start their own fitness journey and that is a good thing too. Plus, if you have children, they will also feel encouraged to stay active when they see their parents making a point to exercise consistently and making it fun.
4. You’ll have more… energy
Energy is the medicine of life, whether we’re at work or home. You’ll find yourself far more energetic and willing to do more things with your partner. And that includes when the lights go out…oh yeah! And do we really need to elaborate further?
5. You’ll reach your fitness goal a lot faster
Peer pressure gets a bad rap, but it has its good points. It’s a lot tougher to bail out on your workout if someone next to you is fully energized and ready for it. Besides, pairing up on workouts with your partner will likely help both of you reach your fitness goals a lot faster than if you went solo.
