When you are single, you can either exercise regularly making it an integral part of your life or remain either wise. But when you train together with your partner, the scene may change. Exercising apparently becomes an action resulting from the efforts of both, you and your partner’s mind-set. If your partner is detrimental, it takes nerves to hit the gym regularly. It’s much harder to get into a routine than out of it, so wouldn’t it be encouraging if you have someone giving you guilt trips far worse than you can have by yourself, whenever you miss your exercise? You can rationalize letting yourself down all you want, but it reaches completely new heights of guilt when it comes from someone else. Well, this is just one of the many reasons couples who exercise together, stay together.
According to Dr. Jane Greer, doing exercise can in itself have a positive impact on you once you include your partner in it too. It can have a positive impact on the relationship – physically and emotionally. Thus, training together makes your relationship stronger and gives you a brand new and exciting way to bond.
