There’s nothing better than doing things along with that special person you love. I’m sure you and your loved one do a lot of things like going to the movies, bowling and else. But have you ever thought about exercising with him or her? You’ll probably think it wouldn’t be that nice to be all sweaty in front of that person you want to impress, but exercising along with your boyfriend or girlfriend might have more advantages than you thought.
It makes you feel happier
Exercise releases endorphins in your brain. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that make you feel happy. Besides, taking advantage of your time together doing something useful for your personal benefit will make you feel better about yourselves. This emotions can be associated with our couple making us fall more in love with him or her.
Encouraging your partner to work in his/her personal growth is one of the many duties of a good boyfriend or girlfriend. If your partner wants to get fitter, you should support that activity. Accompanying her/him is a way of showing support. Therefore, you’ll make your boyfriend/girlfriend feel important for you by being supportive to their hobbies.
What’s better for a couple than reaching their goals together? The sensation of satisfaction of achieving a personal goal and living through it with the support of your beloved one can build the relationship stronger. Both of you will someday remember who you were at the beginning and will see how much you’ve grown and learnt together since then.
Helping each other
Working out can sometimes be difficult or challenging. As everything in life it has its ups and downs, its moments of glory and those of failure. Having someone by your side that helps you go through all of those challenges is reassuring and makes things easier. Being there for your partner when they need you and helping them reach those goals and overcome the difficulties on the way is a great way of showing how much you care about him/her. It also helps you not to surrender.
There are some types of work-outs when you usually need a partner to help you in different activities, like helping you stretch, modifying the weight of the equipment during the training and more. Having your partner exercise with you widens your possibilities of exercises.
Coordinating physical movements creates a similar effect in the brain. It somehow creates a bond letting your brains understand each other better since they have already coordinated your bodies similarly.
Sometimes our jobs, studies and more obligations don’t give us enough time to spend with our partner or doing sport. If you decide to join both activities, you can integrate your partner to your daily life so you don’t have to choose between being with him and keeping your exercise routine.
Spending some time working out together can be very fun and productive for both of you. I encourage you to give it a chance and enhance the relationship.
