Ditch those expensive chocolates or candle light romantic dinners and opt for some amazing fitness activities for couples, which are both fun and healthy for you!
With every passing year, the gifting options for your loved one are either going redundant or they no longer excite your better half. Well, why not do something different this year. Give them fitness as a gift for the lifetime and be a part of the plan as well. Trust us, there are several fun activities couples can do together to stay fit and spend some leisure time together.
Don’t believe? Then read through the article and decide which one is going to make your gifting list for this Valentine’s Day.
Go For A Hike
Find the nearest weekend getaway to your city and plan for some adventure activities like hiking, rock climbing, paragliding, rappelling, etc. Camp out with your better half by the fire and get all the rejuvenation you need in the fresh air. These small but exciting trips will not only give a boost to your energy levels but will also get you closer to your partner as well as nature. Any kind of adventure activity once a month will help you both stay fit and happy.
Re-Cycle Your Love Life
We all have scraped our knees while cycling around the town like crazy during our childhood days. Wasn’t that fun at that time? Well, it will be equally fun even now if you could just get the hold of your partner to bicycle around the town and bring back your good old days.
Cycling is a great workout for promoting heart health, so it will be great if you can encourage other couples to join you in your expedition.

Play Some Sport Together
If we ask you do choose between 30 sit-ups and a game of tennis with your partner, what would you pick? Tennis of course, right! But why? Well, because playing any sport with your partner will be way more fun than working out at a gym alone. Pick sports that need only two people, like tennis, badminton, table tennis, etc. Add this to your daily routine and motivate each other to not let go even a single day without playing together.
Go For A Walk
Getting up early in the morning for a walk might sound like a strenuous task to go out of your morning comfort zone. But, how about including your partner in it and then going for a morning walk daily together? If you both cannot manage time in the morning then make it a point to go on a walk after work hours to unwind after a tiring day and also spend some alone time with each other. Make a list of songs that you both love and hit the road to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Canoeing can be much more than just a leisure time you can have with your partner. It requires two people to paddle, one in the bow (front) and other at the stern (back). Kayaking can also be a great adventure sport that you can do with your special someone. Enjoy your day in water craft near your city and get away from all your weekday blues.
Make a difference this valentine’s day and surprise your partner with your out of the box thinking to have a healthy and fun life with them for many more years to come.
