Power Couples

"The couple that works out together, stays together"
Maybe "together" is for figurative than literal. When everyone is trying to crack out their workout, maybe it doesn't suit to be doing it with your partner. For some, it's a break from the world to be on their own, especially this year living with lockdowns, restrictions and everything in between, an hour or so of treasured alone time can be all that separates us from madness.
But we can't completely knock working out together. Sometimes working out with your partner can bring a refreshing change of pace. It can be fun, you get to spend some quality time together, it's can be something outside of the norm and it can push you to work harder than you've ever worked before! And before you start getting any ideas, we are NOT suggesting going on a couple's hike for the 8th time this month!
So we've compiled some fun and challenging exercises that you can do with your partner. So why not give some a go this Valentine's Day, you might enjoy it!
