How to Workout as a Couple

Helen Bush

There are so many articles out there that go into depth with how to workout by yourself. I figured it was time to help all those couples out there find some ways to workout together. It can be great having some fun with your partner, while you each help one another to stay fit and healthy. There are so many different ways to do this. It can be exciting just trying to decide what you should do. Here we will take a look at just a few of the options available.




  • Take a dance class. I know a lot of the guys out there may not be as excited about this as the ladies, but if you want to romance her this would be perfect. And, believe me, she would love it. You do not have to be perfect. In fact you will probably not be great. It is new to you, and you have to learn all the moves just like any other sport or fitness class. So, stop feeling so shy and go out there and have some fun with your partner.

  • Try a martial arts class. It can be a little scary for most of you to think about your partner throwing punches or kicking at you. However, you will be in protective padding, and you also get the chance to kick and punch at them. It can feel great being able to get rid of some of that pent up frustration and anger you may feel towards each other and get in top physical shape at the same time.

  • Go for a hike. This time of year when everything is blooming can be beautiful. You can go to your local nature trail and spend a nice day of solitude with your partner. It can be peaceful, and you could even stop and have a nice romantic picnic. You can spend some alone time away from everyone and achieve a few fitness goals. It seems like a win-win situation.

  • Clean. I know most women and men hate this one. However, you can burn a lot of calories by just cleaning your house. You will be able to finish your chores and get in a little extra physical activity. The best part is that you can help your partner finish cleaning earlier than usual, which means more quality time with you.

  • Have an active date night. Most of us like to go out to dinner and a movie for our dates, but why not do something a little more physically active? You could go play some tennis, go swimming or rent a canoe on the lake. You could try skating, mountain biking or just taking a nice scenic bike ride. There are so many things to do that can get you out of the house and working out together that are inexpensive and even a little romantic, so you should try to be creative and exciting.


Staying fit and healthy can be the perfect way for you and your partner to become closer to one another and help your relationship grow. It is also great for your fitness goals. You may be surprised at how much a little competition and motivation from your partner can spur you into reaching goals you never thought were possible.
