should couples workout together
try some workout togetherness
Is this what they meant by trying a new position?

There’s an expression that says, the couple that works out together, stays together.

Fitness and healthy living bonds two people over mutual values of self-respect.

We have to stay healthy so we can perform our responsibility not just as parents but as partners to our wife or husband too.

Most relationships tend to fail because we tend to miss the little issues that help renew the love and commitment needed to make the relationship stronger.

When a couple gets married, their lives suddenly blend in all aspects of their life. From sharing chores and bank accounts to buying a home and raising a family, couples must support each other in order to have a happy life.

When you make a vow to be healthy together, your relationship improves.

You find new ways to support and show your love for one another, and you bond over new experiences and habits that will help you both live better lives.


Here are some of the health routines you can adopt in your marriage to improve your relationship with your spouse.

Join a New Gym Together

Workouts can quickly get boring -€“ especially if you go by yourself.

Join a gym together and use your time working out as a way to bond and motivate one another.

If neither one of you are fans of going to the gym, but do so out of necessity, try mixing up your routine and joining a new type of gym.

For example, Crossfit gyms are well known for their motivation and encouragement among members. Do this with your spouse on a regular basis and you will both be celebrating your individual goals together as a team.

Celebrating these goals will bring more happiness and pride into your marriage.


Go Grocery Shopping Together

When grocery shopping is left to just one person, it can quickly become a boring routine. This is when unhealthy decisions are made and couples fight.

Instead of bickering about groceries, make it a team effort. Go to the store together to pick out healthy snacks and encourage each other to stay on track.

This turns a regular chore into an encouraging act between husband and wife.

Take this to the next level by researching recipes together ahead of time and setting up date nights to make healthier dinners together.

This is a fun way to come together in the kitchen and create delicious food to stimulate the senses.


Sign Up for a New Race Together

Training and eating healthy is fun, but having an event to look forward to and work hard for is even better.

Sign up for something fun, such as a mud run, color run or 5k race in your area. If you are passionate about a cause, you can sign up for a charity event to benefit your favorite non-profit organization.

Doing this brings you together in a new way and gives you and your spouse something exciting to look forward to.

Relationships take work, but healthy living is one of the best ways that couples can come together, show love for one another and inspire each other to be the best person they can be.

  1. I signed up to do a 5K race on 4th August and my husband decided to do the training alongside me. It’s much easier to get up at 7 am to go to the gym when you have someone suffering alongside you! And whenever I’m wavering he says “let’s go” and vice versa. We don’t want to let each other down. And I like the fact we are both getting fitter and healthier. We’re on week 5 of the 12 week training and hope we both keep it up.

    1. Wow that’s so cool to hear, Ana and very much the same story of success as Dana ( @mrsdeegee ) below – so it’s gotta be working, yeah?

      OK, time for me to get stuck into Pam for some workout togetherness :)
      How did you approach it with your hubby?

      1. I didn’t really have to say much. I just said I had signed up for the race and which program I was going to follow and he volunteered to follow it with me. He must have been feeling the need to do something about his fitness too.

  2. Great article!
    My husband and I exercise together often. Since we both went to school for personal training, it seemed only natural that we would work out and try new routines and bounce ideas off one another.
    For a lot of people, the motivation to exercise doesn’t come easy…so if their partner is in it with them, it often helps lead to getting off the sofa and moving!
    I enjoyed the post :)

    1. Hi dana,

      I definitely agree. exercise requires motivation. Sometimes, we are too eager to get started and in the end, we tend to lose our enthusiasm.

    2. You’re a living testiment to this post, Dana :)
      Lesson is do whatever it takes to get moving – your partner is often the shove you need haha

      1. Haha…and yesterday was a perfect example. My husband was the push I needed to exercise…and I’m so glad he did.

    3. I wish we had that kind of motivation, Everytime we think of starting a work-out plan together, some obstacle turns up. So i’m always working out solo. I hope we could do it together, someday

      1. I think obstacles intentionally show up to test us. They are an energy form that are just as aware of us as we are of them.

      2. I think the obstacles that turn up are your real test to commitment though, Gautham.
        If you are serious, you’ll always find a way to get it done.
        What can you do to get it started?
