Exercise with a partner: Benefits of working out together

July 5, 2022

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, working out or taking a fun class with your significant other may be a great way to celebrate the holiday as a couple in the epidemic. But if you look deeper into that small percentage of fitness enthusiasts, there can be both emotional and psychological benefits of working out together to strengthen both your bodies and your relationship.

It provides you a support system or a form of accountability

Have you ever wished for a cheerleader during the final set? Having your significant other by your side to shout out words of encouragement can uplift you in pushing through difficult times (even in the gym). Other than a boost of energy, having an accountability buddy can also be a form of motivation. On the days you feel sore and lethargic, you hope that someone would understand how you're feeling, but if you're working out together, you'll be able to power through off-days together.

It strengthens your emotional bond

Do you and your partner ever feel as though you can't read each other's body language? You'll be able to understand each other better as a couple because mimicking one another can help people be more emotionally attuned to one another. Working out then becomes an effective form of bonding, while keeping yourselves healthy and happy. Studies show that moving together - including lifting weights, running at the same pace, and coordinating your exercises - creates more synergy between the couple through "non-verbal matching."

You progress as a couple

Although you have different fitness goals, your significant other will be there to celebrate small victories with you. This healthy habit can also spill over into other aspects of your relationship and milestones you both want to achieve together. You'll soon be seeing improvements in your bodies from pushing each other to exploring workout programs together and doing online Zoom workouts.
