Benefits of Exercising together: Testimonial by Maxi & Liz



There are many potential benefits of exercising together as a couple. For instance, you remain accountable to one another, ensuring that you get the workout done instead of hitting the snooze button. Also, whenever we exercise, endorphins are being released which makes us feel happy as well ! Furthermore, when training together, you would also be able to push and motivate each other which creates positivity to bond over. According to Psychology Today, by working out together with your partner, by performing the same exercise at the same pace, this creates a nonverbal matching which helps couples feel emotionally attuned with each other. Lastly, when you workout together with your partner regularly, you establish a common goal and respect that exercising is important, for yourself as well as your relationship !
