◼️ It’s entertaining and fun, however it has other benefits that you should take advantage of.
While training is more fun and entertaining, there are other reasons why doing sports and/or fitness activities as a couple can be more productive and effective.
With the aim of strengthening your workouts and experience time with your couple in a romantic and different way, Ramón Arenas, Sports Production Manager of Sports World, shares the following benefits of exercising as a couple:
1. NO DELAYS
It’s common that at the beginning of the day you prefer to stay a while longer in bed or at the end of work activities consider it better to retire to your home. Planning your workouts with a friend or partner, will help you to be punctual in the gym or simply not to postpone it.
2. IMPROVE YOUR TECHNIQUE
Practicing with someone else will help you correct postures, detect possible mechanical deficiencies and perform stretches or exercises that can be complex if performed separately.
3. DEVELOPMENT OF NEW SKILLS AND EXPERIENCES
Usually we get stuck in the same sports classes or disciplines, without being given the opportunity to try new things. The fact of training as a couple allows us to explore alternative tastes that in most cases help us develop other skills.
4. GREATER LIBERATION OF ENDORPHINS
According to a study from the University of Oxford it was found that when training as a couple more endorphins are released than when they do it alone.
5. IT REINFORCES TEAMWORK
Some activities require teamwork, so practicing as a couple will help you to have a better physical and emotional harmony and coordination.
Sharing your interests and progress with someone else will help you to commit more to your goals, as well as support your partner to achieve their sporting goals and improve their lifestyle.
