Why You Should Workout With Your Significant Other

Couples Workouts - Ready Set Happy

It’s well-known that we benefit from a change in our fitness routine every 6 to 8 weeks, but have you ever thought about exercising with your partner as the biggest change in your exercise routine? A lot of you might be hesitant because… we ladies might not want our boo to see us all gross and sweaty or maybe you think they’ll just be a distraction while you want to be in the zone, but there are many health and general relationship positives to exercising with your significant other. I love working out with Andy and we try to go to the gym together as often as our schedules permit it. I also use him as my personal trainer (but he’s really mean to me at the gym — he says it’s tough love — *INSERT EYEROLL*). Anyway, read on and be sure to grab your swolemate for your next gym session!

What’s better than going on a date with your boo? Getting to combine fitness and romance all in one! Traditional dates like dinner and a movie is nice, but it can be a snore.

Since we’re both fitness enthusiasts, I love doing active things with my boyfriend/swolemate, and it doesn’t always stop at the gym.

My Favorite Brunch-Date Spots In NYC

If you know me, you’d know that I LOVE to brunch. I would literally eat french toasts for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I knew all those carbs wouldn’t kill me. Naturally, my boyfriend learned that brunch is a way to my heart. I’m into great food, amazing ambience, terrific service and prices that wouldn’t put a hole in my wallet.

If you’re looking for delicious food with an affordable price, this is the spot for you. This has been my number one go-to brunch place. With a plate of eggs, salad, potatoes, bacon or sausage and toast for only $8, the price is unbeatable. My favorite dish here is the Texas french toast which will only set you back $10. You’ll leave with your wallet and stomach satisfied. Just keep in mind this place is cash only.


Rodney And Colleen Saidman Yee On Love And Yoga


We know that yoga can make us one with our inner selves, but for two yoga instructors, the centuries-old practice led them to love. Rodney Yee and his wife, Colleen Saidman Yee are among the most sought-after and renowned yoga instructors in the world. They teach together both nationally and internationally, and have been featured in many lifestyle publications such as SHAPE, Vanity Fair, New York Times and television networks like Oprah and PBS.

Despite their love scandal that rocked the yoga community in 2002, the couple’s impressive clientele–from Christy Turlington to Russell Simmons– continue to be faithful devotees. The Yees shared advice on marriage and tips for yogis of all levels.


4 Ways To A Fit Girl’s Heart


So you want to date a fit girl, or is currently dating a fit girl. Great choice, gentleman! Fit girls are happy, motivated and inspiring. Here’s how you can potentially court your very own fit girl and how to keep her happily ever after.

1. Be open to attending a fitness class with her.

This is one of the ultimate ways to a fit girl’s heart. Before we started dating, my current boyfriend attended his first yoga class with me. I was shocked that he was open to it even though he’s a manly-man who’s only into bodybuilding and weightlifting. It made me see him with a new set of eyes… that he’s willing to get out of his comfort zone for me.
