5 Reasons Why You Should DATE-FIT.
Whether we like it or not, we are the average of the 5 people that we spend the most time with. Which means that we share the same hobbies, eating habits, drinking habits, music preferences, etc. with the people that we are around the most.
Think about it, do you want to share the qualities of your couch potato roommate or the cute neighbor that hits the gym before the sun comes up? Your lifestyle choices not only carry over from relationships with family and friends, but romantic relationships as well.
If you’re working hard on your New Year’s resolutions but your significant other is not- it’s more likely that your fitness goals could take the back burner to your relationship.
Word on the street is that “couples that life together stay together?” That’s because individuals that exercise consistently exude certain qualities in their personality that clearly show on the outside. While this may not be a proven fact but…..staying fit much easier when your partner shares the same lifestyle as you! Which is why Datefit is here to share the top reasons to date someone that shares your love for fitness:
Gym Dates: I’m sure we all have that one power couple at the gym that everyone envies. Not only does working out with your boyfriend/girlfriend give you a permanent spotter while you lift.... but the extra time together will strengthen your bond (while your both strengthening those muscles). Also, lifting together shows that you can rely on this person both inside and outside the gym!
Motivation: When your partner shares the same goals, it is easier to stay on track! You can motivate each other to do one more rep, run that extra mile together, or put down that pint of Ben & Jerry’s when you’re feeling down. The possibilities are endless, but it all starts with the support and motivation from your other half.
Zero temptation: If you grocery shop and meal prep together, the temptation to binge on unhealthy food is no longer there! You can come up with healthy alternatives and prep them for the week so that you are both staying on track and bonding while you’re at it.
Endorphins= Happy couple: I know that Elle Woods said I first but….endorphins make people happy! People who workout always have that post-workout glow and the endorphins carry throughout the rest of the day and into your relationship!
Strong personality: People who live a healthy lifestyle show that they are confident, that they have will-power, are goal-oriented, and most importantly..... committed!
