Nothing is more important to our health and happiness than the health of our relationships! They take work. Nothing worth having comes without effort. Please comment if you agree! Research shows that couples who exercise together have a deeper emotional connection. Don’t be discouraged if your partner doesn’t love working out with you or if he or she has yet to share your love for health and fitness. Often the “less fit or healthy” partner feels judged by the partner who is in fact on the right path. If your attempts have been unsuccessful, before you throw in the towel, try 5 more times! Try a different approach. If it’s not working, think about what has worked to get your partner to try or do something in the past that wasn’t their idea. Be creative. No one knows your partner better than you. It’s funny to me that so many people KNOW that what they’re trying won’t work with their partner, but they still keep using the same approach. Be the bigger person. Don’t give up. Use the approach you believe will have the best result. Respond in love. Respond in kind. Make your partner feel adored, supported and loved. Remember that it’s not the intensity or even the effectiveness of the workout, more important is the time together and the support you give your partner. Instead of making it about you or your expertise or your favorite workout, put your partner in the high seat. Make it about them or what they are good at! Keep trying. Don’t give up. Be creative. Be loving. When your partner feels adored, he or she is far more likely to try something new. Do you workout with a partner? If so, what do you do together?
