This week we celebrate Sweetest Day, and what better way to connect with your sweetie than with a workout!
If you never thought of working out with your spouse or you don’t think it can work because you are different physically or at different fitness levels, let me share with you the stories of four inspiring couples who are on a health and fitness journey together.
I love training husband and wife couples because losing weight and living a healthy lifestyle is truly a family affair.
Working out together doesn’t always work for every couple, but these guys really enjoy it.
Scott and Celia keep each other accountable not just with training but attending yoga classes together and when they eat out they order one entree and split it, rather than indulging in large individual portions.
Ken and Sarah make times for workouts both at the gym and at home, and they can bring their two girls with them to training which is a big plus. They discuss the weekly meal plan and Sarah preps food for the whole family each week to be sure they all stay on track with healthy meals.
Bo and Tracy love coming in and working hard, and now their two daughters also want to start training! Planning healthy meals for the family is also a big focus for these two, and because they are both coming to training it keeps them accountable to working out on their own as well.
Maggie and Andy were my first husband wife team, and their results have been impressive! Not only do they train with me, they go to the gym a couple times a week and have really enjoyed getting stronger and being able to do it together.
With everything we have going on in life, sometimes it can be hard to find time to connect with your partner. If that’s the case, an hour at the gym can be not only time to focus on your health and fitness goals but also a little quality time with your honey!
Just because you are different sizes, shapes or have different strength and ability levels doesn’t mean you can’t train together, as long as you have the right trainer who can equally challenge you both.
I love working with husbands and wives and showing them that this journey is one they can and should take together. We should all be focused on being health and fit for life, so we can live a long and happy life together.
So this Sweetest Day, if you and your love and thinking of making a change, maybe skip the candy and dinner out and hit the gym instead. You just might find it not only changes your body, but also strengthens your relationship.
