Move to dance beats
If you are the couple that loves to tear up the dance floor at nightclubs and weddings, it is time you take a step ahead and burn some calories. Sign up for a dance class and match steps with your sweetheart. There are some interesting dance-workouts, like zumba and dance aerobics. An hour long session of zumba can help your burn about 325-725 calories. You can also go for an enticing couple dance form like rumba, salsa or tango. It surely would be a turn-on for you to see your partner groove to some Latino music, we believe!
If fast pace workout is not your cup of tea, here is a more peaceful option for you. Practice yoga with your partner. With 'couples yoga', you and your partner can help to provide support to each other during stretches. A few yoga poses that you can do with your partner include, double standing straddle, double boat, supported back arch and double seated twist pose. It works well for couples because it teaches them the art of balance. Yoga will not only make you more flexible and calmer, but will also bring you closer (physically and spiritually).
Another interesting way to sweat some calories with your partner is to hop to your neighbourhood park for a jog with your partner. It will teach you two to adjust to each other’s pace. For instance, if your partner likes to jog at a faster pace, they will either have to slow down for you or you will have to catch up. Either ways you both will have to be a little adjusting. And, soon there will be a time where you both will be jogging at the same speed, bucking each other up. A fitness and relationship lesson entwined, we say!
Push that pedal
