What do celebrity couples like Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma, Shahid Kapoor-Mira Rajput, Tiger Shroff-Disha Patani have in common? They workout together and inspire each other to stay fit! Basically, they are the OG fit couples we take inspiration from. Partners often socialize, eat out, travel, get clicked together, and enjoy other recreational activities. However, in the current times, taking care of each other’s health is seen as a pivotal form of love. Working out together is a great way to bring a couple closer and bond with one another.
A healthy, disease-free, and stress-free lifestyle is the key to an eternally strong relationship with your better half. Being physically fit will instinctively make two people in a relationship feel good about not only themselves but about each other as well. This can surely work as a motivational factor for carving a great relationship.
A date night that involves cooking a healthy meal together could be one of the best ideas for a couple to spend time with each other. Choose nutritious dishes and consider each other’s preferences. Make use of a good amount of healthy foods such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, chicken, fish, cottage cheese, among others. Choose organic, seasonal, and locally available foods and avoid packaged, preserved or canned foods as they are loaded with unhealthy fats, sugar, salt, and preservatives.
As we said, ‘couples that sweat together, stay together’, Invest time in some kind of physical activity such as couple yoga, any favourite sports, swimming, running, a brisk walk, or training together at the gym. Joining a spiritual session or a meditation class together can also help in maintaining mental and emotional health. Remember, your overall well-being can always help to keep your relationship in a good shape. You can also try some couple-oriented HIIT exercises such as high knees, burpees, partner push-ups, pull ups, high jumps, Russian twist pass, among others to accelerate the heart rate and work on those muscles.
Doing things in each other’s company will not only allow couples to spend more time together, but they can also mutually motivate each other. Inspiring your partner will help them achieve their fitness goals faster and easier. In case anyone of you has any harmful addictions, your partner can help you overcome them with immense care, love, and motivation.
There will be times when your partner might feel low and lazy to engage in any physical activity. In such daunting times, it becomes important to encourage him/her to workout at least 3-4 times a week. Push forward your significant other and pump up that positive energy into him/her to be the better version of yourself.
Prioritize your health as well as your partner’s well-being by focusing on nutritious food. Try being in a healthy weight bracket. Get a full-body check up done on a regular basis to assess physical health from time to time. This can help detect any kind of underlying illnesses, based on which one can take precautionary treatments/measures to prevent a greater risk in future.
A healthy and light-hearted competition between couples can do wonders. Setting up a significant benchmark for your partner can help them excel and inspire them to work to the best of their abilities. However, be careful of hurting their self-esteem or offending them.
Fix an entire week’s menu and head out for the grocery shopping together. One tends to eat in a much more organised and healthy way when meals are pre-planned and all the required ingredients are in place. Share the responsibilities of planning things, cooking, shopping, setting up the dinner table, and others equally. Consider each other’s food preferences and appreciate the other person when he/she cooks for you or takes you out for your favourite meal.
