Hit the gym or go for a run (or whatever your exercise of choice) and get sweaty together!
Go for a bike ride or borrow a tandem bike.
Classic but fun. You will surely enjoy this kind of date, plus you get to exercise not just your core, but your balance as well.
Take a yoga class together.
This kind of date is advisable for couples that are always busy and experiencing stress. Take a deep breath with your partner, enrol in a yoga centre near you!
Do house renovations or repaint the wall.
This item is not exactly an exercise but will surely get your body working. Imagine planning the interior design of your house and repainting it with the love of your life.
Go to a sports game
If your partner has a favourite team, surprise them with tickets, or pick a new sport you can get into together.
Camping and exercise
If you’re the outdoorsy type and don’t mind roughing it a little, there’s nothing more romantic than sleeping out under the stars. Do not forget to exercise in the morning while seeing the beautiful sunrise.
Nothing makes you feel better than helping out someone in need, so why not spend the day doing a little good for the less fortunate.
Go ice skating
Get active and do something a little different. Better yet, if one of you is a little shaky and there are extra excuses to get touchy-feely. Why not make the whole night winter-themed? Think open fire, smores and hot chocolate.
You see, dates don’t have to be stuck in the dinner and movie box anymore! It’s time to step outside your comfort zone, be active and make some special, unique memories. Now, throw on some sneakers and athletic-leisure clothes and get active together!
