Tomorrow is everyone’s favorite commercial holiday! In celebration, Todd Smith Fitness wants to invite you to skip the flowers and candy and get your partner what they really want; a great workout here at Todd Smith Fitness. Bring in a partner anytime this week for a private session with one of our great trainers. There are many benefits to working out with your significant other:
- It’s a date. A weekly workout schedule is guaranteed quality time with your S/O. No kids, no stress; just you, your lover, and the iron. Date night is so blasé. How about a weekly date workout?
- Builds a stronger emotional bond. Synchronized activity helps people feel emotionally attuned with one another. Studies show that couples who train together tend to report greater feelings of having “bonded” with their partner. Exercising together provides an opportunity to create such connection, benefiting both your health and your relationship.
- More Supportive. Working out with your partner provides support that will help you both reach your fitness goals. If you’re both working towards a common goal you will be less likely to sabotage each other. How many times have you talked you S/O into a cheat meal?
- Physiological Arousal. The endorphins that are produced in the brain and released during exercise are the same as those we produce during arousal. The production of dopamine, which can lead to increased feelings of pleasure, plays a major role in mood. No one ever leaves a workout in a bad mood.
