In the same vein as eating well, exercising together is a great bond-builder for committed couples. When you find an activity that both of you enjoy, it’s an automatic gateway to spending time together and learning more about each other’s strengths (literally). Getting both members of a couple to commit to physical activity can be difficult at times, but if one half of the couple is encouraging and positive, it gets easier over time. Exercising together doesn’t need to be a big production, it can be as simple as getting off the sofa and going for a walk in the neighborhood to get coffee. And yes, it can be more intense like taking a dance class, a boxing class or an IronFit class.
When getting started on this path, ask your partner what types of workout he or she likes to do. If it’s something you can learn to enjoy too, so much the better. If not, you could consider getting a gym membership that allows you to each choose activities you like. Swimming, hiking and running also are good activities for couples to do together, even when they are traveling.
