They say the couple that sweats together, stays together. In fact, Fitness Magazine reports that 94% of couples stick with a workout if they work out together. Folks, that’s almost 100%. Imagine if we all just started working out with our significant others? We’d be so fit.
The more important thing about fitness, in addition to making you look great, is that it makes you feel great. Greatist says that physical fitness can do everything from reduce stress to improve self confidence. Not to mention that physical fitness can really step up your sex life once those gym shoes come off.
But if you’re a fitness newbie or you have never really figured out how to make fitness fun, it can be hard to stick with a workout. Just remember that fitness isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of activity. Be open to trying different things with your partner and starting from scratch. Like marriage or a relationship, fitness is a journey, not a destination, so don’t get down on yourself if you find yourself struggling along the way.
So, without further ado, here are five different couple-oriented physical fitness activities that just might have you and your partner whistling a different tune when it comes to exercise.
And don’t forget, semi-frequent sexual activity can also be as easy or challenging on a fitness level as you want. Some of the health benefits of frequent time in bed together include working every muscle in your body, making you happier, and giving you a stronger immune system, among other benefits. So, even though sex might not be the ONLY type of exercise you want to do together, it is definitely a complement to any other physical activity you try together.

Mother’s Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
In the first few weeks of May, the grocery stores are filling up with “I Love My Mom” balloons and flowers that are bundled together with “Happy Mother’s Day” ribbons. It’s that time of year again— when every son and daughter is on the hunt for that perfect gift to give their moms.
We interviewed Wendy Strgar, founder, and CEO of Good Clean Love as well as a mother of four, about motherhood from her point of view—a mother’s point of view.
