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. Since that time in my early 20s, I haven’t really worked out religiously.

Boo, on the other hand, has become quite the gym rat. I am vowing to join him – eventually – because I want to be healthier and keep my bikini body when I’m 70. Yes, I want to look like this! #SLAY



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. The proof is in the numbers: 30 percent of those surveyed admitted to being intimate with someone after working out.

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!
