94% of those who exercise in pairs tend to stick to their training program.
After all, you know, if there is a way to make physical activity more fun it is to do it in company, even better if with your sweetheart. This increases confidence and intimacy: it is no coincidence that it is said that “couples who train together stay together”.


Partner workouts are booming with the number of online searches doubling. If you too have been carried away by this type of workout, what are the best exercises to do with your partner? We took inspiration from Instagram to give you some ideas.


US Air Force fitness test

When you force your wife to do the US Airforce fitness test with no practice and she absolutely smashes it 🇺🇸🙌 – – – #fitness #couplegoals #couple #fitnessmotivation #youtube

It's not the first thing that comes to mind when you want to train with your partner, but for @Mattdoesfitness it was. He had his wife try the US Air Force basic military training physical test, which consists of:


 1 minute of push-up
 1 minute of sit-ups
 a run of 1,5 miles (approximately 2400 meters)

It sounds tough, but they both did it! And Sarah doesn't even look tired. See the full exercise here.
Warning: it can get very competitive.

Zack and his girlfriend, Sam, incorporated dance moves into their training. They move to the rhythm of the music, as if proving their strength weren't enough! Why don't you couples try it at home too? The pressure on the shoulders is guaranteed!

If you like creating dance choreography (and having to give orders to your partner), you could come up with your own. Pick a track and design a workout that goes in time.

Post the video and tag us on @healthiergangIT. We want to see what you are capable of!

 

La Koala Challenge

Have you tried the koala challenge yet? 🐨 Tag who you'd give it a go with and make sure you film your attempts! 📷 @georgiagilbert23 #healthiergang #koalachallenge #lockdownchallenge

The most demanding challenge ever for couples: it consists in literally climbing on the body of your partner as if one were the tree and the other the koala.

You will need, however, a strong tree, especially in the legs, and possibly that does not make you fall. If you play the koala, you will have to have strength everywhere (without neglecting a good dose of courage to make the first move!). Even if you fail, you will have a lot of laughs trying.

 

Training with your dog

Who ever said your training partner has to be a human? Georgia's dog is the ideal partner, a better motivator than the average personal trainer! But we advise against trying with a Great Dane, or it could end badly for everyone ...


Your First Move Is Their Last Move (Footie Edition)

If your significant other wants to show off, this is the way to go. Unfortunately, this requires both of you to be good at dribbling. If you can't kick a ball without shattering a few windows, we recommend you try the other variants of the challenge "your first move is
their last move ". Here are some suggestions:

 Acrobat edition
 Yoga edition
 Plank edition
 Dance edition

So you can give it your all and have fun making the sequence as difficult as possible for your partner. Who first of the two will collapse to the ground or make the wrong move?


Put on some good music and enjoy!

We know that for many, music is good company during physical activity, so turn up the volume and start moving.
The best way to train with someone is to have fun while doing the exercises. The more laughs you make, the less you'll feel like you're struggling: a win-win situation for everyone.

Kirsty doesn't have to repeat it: she knows when it's time to take the repetitions seriously and when, instead, have a good laugh. In doing a circuit, she and her friend smile all the time, which is precisely the purpose of training together (with or without your significant other).

Take a look at the circuit in the post caption and try to enjoy even half of it
what they did!

Conclusion

Training in pairs is a great way to increase complicity, as well as reach new heights after unleashing the competition. What better solution to liven up time together! Try out new challenges and sequences, or just train with a smile.


Of course, send us a video of your couple workout: maybe you will be the one to appear in our next video.
