Nothing beats a good, secure relationship. But when things get too comfortable you can lose your motivation to keep yourself trim and healthy. Taking on a fitness regime alone can also be daunting. So why not make a joint effort ?
It’s a good idea to try things you don’t usually do, or test new fitness trends. Some fun ideas for couple workouts include:
Remember, couples who play together, stay together. So have fun and get fit!
To be honest I like to have a break away from my other half - that's a bonus of going to the gym!
I'd just like to 'shout out' to my partner who encouraged me to wrap up and go for a walk yesterday. Needed that 'push' when a comfy sofa beckons!
I highly recommend having a 'rough tussle' with your partner. It certainly gets the adrenaline and heartrate going and often ends in a kiss and cuddle :)
child care for older ones is indeed difficult - it is the gap between the creche years and when they can be parked in the cafe, or even join in. I wonder if there are classes for the whole family?
The problems starts when you have kids and someone has to be at home to look after them. Roll on to when they're teenagers and I can go running with my wife again.
I wish I could convince my wife to work out with me but it doesn't seem likely. After a few months at my gym I got to know the familiar faces though and sometimes I work out with a couple of them which is good.
excellent idea - no-one should be a sports widow or widower. And here's to gyms with creches so it works for parents too!
