Train with your spouse or a friend because it comes as a huge benefit to your fitness and health goals. We know that exercise is great for our minds and bodies, but sometimes it’s challenging to maintain interest or find the time.
There’s a ton of reasons why training with your spouse or friend will help you, but mainly these are accountability, motivation, relationship bonding, and enjoyment.
Read on to find out if couples who sweat together, really stay together.
After the past two years, things got pretty crazy. So, if one of your immediate goals this year is to get your body back into shape and to start leading a healthy lifestyle – then who best can you achieve it with than your spouse as your training partner?

Train With Your Spouse To Turn Up The Heat
Personally, I love solo workouts, but having a goal to work toward in tandem with your man or lady is really fun, not to mention a butt-kicking experience. It’s not surprising since there are documented advantages when you train with your partner that can benefit you both.
What’s Better About Exercising Together?
Here’s a peek at some of the potential benefits of getting sweaty with your partner.
1. It Creates Accountability
When you train with your spouse, he or she can give you a nudge to get out of bed in the early morning. Waking up at 5 a.m. isn’t easy but I won’t lie when you’ve got your beloved doing it with – smashing your fitness goals can be so much easier.
That’s why I love BODYTEC – my boyfriend and I get to train together and our session is done in 20 minutes. Short, sweet, what more could you want? Claim your Complimentary Trial Voucher at BODYTEC Rivonia only.
Besides, if your spouse is up and ready to go you’ll be more likely to get your sweat session done instead of hitting snooze for the next hour. Having an accountability partner can make you stick to your guns, even on days when a workout is the last thing you want to do.
2. It Oozes Happiness Into Your Relationship
There’s no doubt that exercising makes you a happier person. We can thank all those endorphins for that!
However, something special occurs when you train with your spouse because you’re experiencing ‘the burn’ together. Also, pushing and motivating each other, then experiencing results, creates positivity to bond over.
3. It Enhances Your Emotional Connection
According to Psychology Today, when you train with your spouse you create something called, ‘nonverbal matching.’ Think lifting weights or moving in rhythm, or kicking a soccer ball to each other.
Nonverbal matching helps couples feel ’emotionally attuned with one another.’ How wonderful is this? Train with your spouse and fall even more in love with them – sounds great! Better yet, couples who experience this tend to report greater feelings of bonding with their partner. It’s definitely a win-win to train with your spouse.
4. It Solidifies Mutual Commitment And The Importance Of Exercise In Your Relationship
If you train with your spouse regularly, you’ll establish a common goal and respect that exercise is vital for not only you but your relationship too.
Studies show that individuals are more likely to make a positive health behaviour change if their partner does, too. Go ahead and make a daily workout part of your routine together to strengthen your foundation.

In reality, there are so many things that can happen which may cause discouragement or uneasiness. Some of these might put you off the thought of now having to exercise. Fortunately when you train with your spouse at BODYTEC or any other kind of setting there are so many benefits to motivate you.
Let’s keep the fire alive by working out together a few days a week, or only ONCE A WEEK if you train with BODYTEC Rivonia (‼️Claim your Complimentary Voucher valued at R195.00*, t’s and c’s apply.‼️).
