Active & Healthy Valentine’s Day Ideas Your Partner Will Love
If your Valentine’s Day tradition is to spend two hours sitting in the movie theater and then another two hours at a heavy (and unhealthy) dinner, we have some active and healthy new ideas for you this Valentine’s Day!
If your partner loves to run
Sign up for a Valentine’s Day Race that you can do together! These runs are usually fun and laid back (and offer tons of entertainment and food). Plus, you’ll be burning calories on this date!
If your partner is into group activities
Break a sweat together in a cardio or weight lifting class! If you’re single – sign up for a singles fitness class.
If your partner is a dare devil
Indoors or outdoors, rock climbing is not only fun. You can burn around 700 calories for every active hour you spend rock climbing. It’s also a great way to build and maintain your muscle! Challenge yourself and your partner to new heights!
If your partner needs to relax
After a day of doing active activities, your back, neck and shoulders are sure to feel the burn! Plan a massage with your partner to not only wine down, but all allow your bodies to release toxins and function better. Studies show that during a massage, large amounts of endorphins are released into the bloodstream, reducing pain and stress levels.
If your partner is into nutrition
Take a cooking class! Spice up your skills in the kitchen and impress your date with new and delicious recipes. Not only is it a great way to interact with each other, but you can also meet other couples interested in cooking.
If your partner loves to dance
Take a dance class! If you’re not the best dancer, no worries! That’s what the instructor is there for. Studies say that you may be able to burn about 300 calories for every hour spent moderately dancing. Dancing gets your heart rate up and helps you to improve your coordination skills.
