If you have a partner in your life, you also have a buddy for your workouts! Exercising with your significant other is a great bonding experience. It also makes you a more dynamic and productive pair. If you're the one in the relationship that loves fitness, but your partner does not, you can still workout as a team without pressure or boring the less fitness inclined partner.
Here are Three tips for encouraging your partner to exercise:
1. Don't drag him/her to the gym, find fun activities
The gym is the worst spot to be, if you're not a fan of exercise. Instead of suggesting traditional forms of fitness, suggest activities instead, that promote health and well being. A Saturday morning bike ride, taking martial arts classes together, or even going for a walk are great ways to get someone involved slowly. Without scaring them away with a big, muscle burning lifting session.
2. Compliment, Compliment, Compliment
If you manage to get your partner exercising regularly, help them to enjoy the benefits of their program by pointing out their new muscles, leaner waist line and defined glutes. Making the special person in your life feel good about their body is important regardless of the amount they exercise, but pointing out their progress in a way that makes them feel sexy and accomplished will have them working out more than you, in no time!
3. Don't be pushy, bossy, or a know it all
If you have been exercising for years, but your partner never has, avoid the urge to run the show. It's acceptable to correct form here and there, or set the pace on a jog but the worst turn off, is having someone that doesn't allow you to experience fitness first hand. If your partner feels like they are slowing you down, or they feel bullied to do things your way, you won't have a workout buddy for long! If anything, ask your partner how your form looks or tell them to suggest a running route they may enjoy. Make your partner feel useful, needed, and equal.
Exercising together is fantastic. It keeps your workouts consistent, and together, any pair exercising will feel better mentally and physically. This will surely improve emotional and physical connections.
