As the holiday of romance, Valentine’s Day is a symbolic invitation to let love flourish. While a nice, cooked meal can be a great way to spend an evening together, you may want to try something a little more adventurous with your partner when it comes to this special day. Keep reading for five couples’ workout ideas or activities to try out on Valentine’s Day!
1. Go For A Bike Ride
No matter where you are, you’re likely within a short drive of a scenic park or bike trail. Bike-friendly trails and parks can be fun to ride through, with scenic routes and fresh air to put you both in a good mood. The best part about bike riding is you can set the speed to match your mood. Ride at a relaxing pace and enjoy each other’s presence or try racing each other if you’re feeling competitive. Just don’t forget your helmet!
2. Bundle Up For Winter Sports
If climbing up mountains isn’t your style, try skiing down them instead! Valentine’s Day weekend in February is during peak ski seasons when most lifts and ski runs are open. Skiing and snowboarding are some of the most popular winter sports that can also help you sneak in some strength training. At the end of the day, you can defrost with your partner by sharing some hot cocoa next to a cozy fire.
3. Sign Up For A Yoga Class
Yoga is a great outlet for building deep connections and emotional reflection. When it comes to yoga for partners, several positions may require you to communicate and work with your partner to achieve them, fostering trust. Aside from that, many yoga positions work to improve your body’s mobility and core strength, so not only will you and your partner enjoy some intimate time, but you’ll also get a nice workout!
4. Try A Rock Climbing Course
Climbing is a great couples activity because it requires teamwork to help you reach the top and stay safe while climbing. If you’re new to rock climbing, or the weather outside isn’t ideal, look for a nearby gym. Many gyms offer beginner group courses to show you the ropes and practice walls for a variety of skill levels.
5. Take A Swing At Golf
Mini golf is a fun sport for all ages and skill levels. It can keep you moving without breaking a sweat. You can keep the game light-hearted or up the stakes with a friendly bet. Some courses also allow you to bring in food and drinks, so you can make it a well-rounded date. If you are feeling bolder, consider booking some tee time at a local golf course and trying out your skills on the green with your partner!
