Our Valentines Day Couples Fitness Challenge
Our Valentine’s Day edition fitness challenge is designed to be fun, engaging, and suitable for all fitness levels. It’s set for one day and runs 70 minutes but feel free to adjust or add any extra time, like taking a longer stroll to warm up or wind down with your partner.
Ready? Here’s your game plan!
One Day of Duo Dynamics 💘
1. Partner Warm-Up (10 Minutes)
- Mirror Movements: Face each other and pick one of you to be the leader. The follower will mimic the leading partner’s movements. Then, switch! This can include stretches, squats, or arm circles. The goal is to stay in sync.
- Joint Jog: A light 5-minute jog around your neighborhood or in place if you’re staying indoors.
2. Strength & Trust (20 Minutes)
- Assisted Squats: Stand back-to-back, link arms, and squat together. Aim for 3 sets of 10 reps.
- Partner Push-Ups: Face each other in the push-up position, and as you rise, give a gentle high-five with alternating hands. If you have to do the knee variation, that’s fine! Go until you have 2 reps left in the tank.
3. You Make My Heartbeat (30 Minutes)
- Outdoor Option: Take a brisk walk or hike in a scenic area, keeping pace with each other’s stride. Take turns with who sets the pace.
- Indoor Option: Make a high bpm playlist together and have a dance-off in your living room.
4. Stretch and Reflect (10 Minutes)
- Partner Yoga Poses: Try poses that require balance and support from each other, such as double tree pose or seated forward bend.
- Gratitude Session: End your workout by sharing one thing you appreciate about your partner’s effort today.
Wrapping Up with Love and Sweat
After completing your Couples Fitness Challenge, remember to hydrate and perhaps treat yourselves to a healthy, homemade Valentine’s dinner. Continue to reflect on the fun you’ve had, how these activities have brought you closer together, and if you want to plan it again in the future.
