Another Valentine’s Day is in the books. Did you get a box of candy? A beautiful floral arrangement? Those are nice gifts but after they’re gone, we have a suggestion for something else to consider for your loved one during this month of cupids and hearts.
Something for couples that’s healthy, long-lasting, and has many benefits…
Time after time, studies have shown that working out and getting fit together is good for your relationship. At Jesse James Fit, we’ve seen and experienced the concrete benefits of getting fit with a loved one. And because we are committed to making lasting improvements in the
lives of our clients, we put our money where our mouths are.
The Additional Cost of Working Out as a Couple at Jesse James Fit?
Jesse James Fit is proud to always offer couples an incredible deal—you and your significant other can work out with a personal trainer together for the same price as just one! When you enroll in a personal training program at Jesse James Fit, your chosen partner can work out with the personal trainer at the same time free of charge. We know this is an exceptional value, and we offer it because we realize just how important and beneficial it is to have couples make a commitment to fitness together.
In our years of providing personal training to clients, we’ve seen first-hand the benefits that people experience when they make a fitness commitment with a loved one.
1) Sharing a Goal Brings You Closer
“Love is not just looking at each other, it’s looking in the same direction”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
One way to increase closeness in your relationship is to have a shared goal or activity— and getting fit is perfect for this. When you work out as a couple, you’re getting healthy and prioritizing fitness together. The experience of working together toward this goal brings you closer.
2) A Partner Holds You Accountable
People who are held accountable for their workout routine are more likely to be successful—and a partner can do exactly that. On the other hand, when you’re on your own you’re much more likely to skip workouts when you’re feeling unmotivated or having a bad day. A partner joining you on workouts increases your chances of sticking to your plan on those days.
A study in Prevention Magazine found that 94% of couples stuck to their workout plan when they did it together.
3) Trying Something New Strengthens Your Relationship
Trying something new together brings closeness to a relationship. Using a personal trainer and learning new workouts together will help a couple feel more connected.
4) Workout Sessions Give You Guaranteed Quality Time
Life, jobs, and kids get in the way of even the most determined couple to spend time together. Date nights, unfortunately, get pushed out of the way frequently—even with the best intentions. But if you make time in your day to exercise and start doing it together, it gives you some built-in quality time during the day.
5) Getting Fit Together Increases Happiness with Your Relationship
Studies show that after participating in exercise together, couples report feeling more satisfied with their relationship and more in love with their partner. Sharing a fitness goal (such as training for a run) can often boost the happiness you feel about your relationship.
6) Partners Help You Achieve Your Fitness Goals
A recent study of couples showed that husbands who care about fitness actually engage in more physical activity when their wives offer support regarding exercise. Getting healthy and making fitness an important part of your life is a great activity to share. And the motivation from a partner can go a long way toward helping you achieve your goals.
7) Workouts Give You Both a Place to Blow Off Steam
Having a “gym date” where you can blow off steam during a workout will not only help control your stress level, but will keep your partner from being the target of a bad day. This can really help keep the peace and your happiness as a couple!
