Working Out as a Couple Keeps Love Alive, Study Says

I am vowing to get fit with Boo – eventually – because I want a bikini body and long-lasting love!

Once upon a time I taught at a public school in NYC located right next to a gym. The gym’s close proximity to work served as motivation; I began working out three times a week when I was done with the kiddos. Then came summer and summer vacation, which means I got super lazy and was only interested in sleeping, drinking and partying.

Plus, there’s a link between working out and love. After surveying 2,000 people, Tough Mudder discovered that the couple that sweats together, stays together. Fitness even improves your sex life.

If you’re currently on Tinder, Hinge, Bumble or any “swipe right/left” dating app – and you work out – you’ll get more love online; 44 percent said they’d “like” someone who had a picture of themselves working out. Just make sure your fitness pic doesn’t look like this.

That’s a large number, which means one thing – I must workout with Boo!
