We know some people who struggle with keeping on track with training routine, especially in this freezing weather that suddenly struck our continuously warm city.  It is challenging to maintain a workout routine, considering traffic, work, weather, our partners, etc.Let us concentrate on that last point: our partners, men and women.

Women usually prefer cardio or aerobics training while men enjoy strength training. Usually couples training together tend to motivate each other, some think it’s to impress one another while others think it’s the subconscious. We think it’s simply male vs. female, Mars vs. Venus. May the best man/woman win.

Lets forget all about the training for a bit and focus on the relationship. Everyone needs some spicing up, Romeo &Juliet, Brad &Angelina; do you have any other examples of love stories? Well even they need spicing up with their relationships. We’re not relationship Gurus but we know this: couples training together tend to grow closer emotionally and physically. Training with your partner creates a new bond between you; you learn how to work together through tough times. Training alone is a stress reliever, with your loved one it’s simply the cheapest therapy you will ever find.

Taking into consideration two of what we hope are major things in your life that work best together, we have something for you. A one-day workout you and your partner can add to your training regimen. Not only to gain physical competence but we also hope that it will be a start of a series of workouts replacing your weekly Oprah or Dr. Phil.
