I have teamed up with Reebok and their Fast Flexweave shoes to bring you the benefits and tips to working out with your significant other.


The Benefits

1. Feel More Confident One thing that is guaranteed to lead to a better married life is feeling confident! When you are happy with the way you look, you're more likely to pay attention to your partner, and you'll definitely be better together ;)

2. More Time Spent Together Working out together ensures that you'll spend a few hours a week together without distractions. Before Spence and I worked out together, it was taking time away from our relationship. Now that we work out together, we spend at least 2 more hours a week together!

3. Deepens Emotional Connection You know how research says that mimicry creates a bond? This can happen while working out too! If you and your partner are walking, running, biking, or any of the ways you can move together, you are spiking an unconscious connection. This will translate into your day-to-day life as well.

4. Synchronizes Your Life Similar to the benefit stated above, getting your fitness on with your partner allows you to synchronize. It keeps you on the same eating time frame, the circadian rhythms on pace, and aides the biological clocks in staying paired.

5. Have Less Fights You know when you're pissed and just need to get that energy out? Doing physical activity to get out negative feelings is healthy and guaranteed to lead to less fighting and tension! Leave your madness on the bike.

The Tips

1. Commit to a day and time It will be so much easier  to stick to the workout routine and plan if you put your fitness date into your calendar. Even better, go the same days and times weekly!

2. Motivate with Killer Workout Gear When you feel like you're in a slump with your health routine, getting new clothes can be the pick-me-up trick! Spencer and I recently got the Reebok Fast Flexweave shoes to up our fitness game, and we are loving them! The shoes come in both male and female styles-- perfect to match your spouse at the gym! They are comfortable and good looking, fueling our workouts.  I have had so many people compliment the sleek design of them while wearing the shoes out and about, and Spencer loves how light they are! The Flexweave shoes allow us to preform well at the gym and still look good while running errands afterwards! We bought ours online and in store at DSW; you can buy your own at the DSW stores as well!

3. Support Each Other, but Don't Boss Each Other Obviously you want to push each other while at the gym, but make sure you aren't pretending to be their personal trainer. Too much control of your partner while they workout will lead to tension in the relationship. Spot them, yes. Cheer them on, yes. Tell them how to do it, no way. On the other hand, healthy competition will make any fitness routine better! Race each other, but be sure to be safe!

4. Be Willing to Try New Things It should be no surprise that if you plan on working out with your other half, you will have to try new things. Eventually you will both find activities that you enjoy doing together, but until that balance is found, you have to be open to anything!

5. Save the Rest for the Bedroom No one else wants to see your PDA at the gym. A kiss in between sets, sure... but don't go making out on the floor!
