Whether it be a first date or a much needed night out scheduling a date night of dinner and a movie can seem mundane to a fitness loving couple. Planning a date geared towards fitness can bring new life to your dates or help you learn a lot about a person you are just getting to know. Plan these fitness dates for your next evening out and learn something new about your partner!
indoor Rock Climbing
Rock Climbing for fitness is a great full body workout that burns up to 900 calories an hour! Climbing together can be a great way to encourage your partner to do things they have never achieved before, and vise versa! Many climbing gyms have very well priced day passes with shoe and chalk rentals, no need to buy all the equipment!
Scheduling a Yoga class for your next fitness oriented date can give you and your partner the relaxing time you need. An hour of Yoga can burn up to 600 calories depending on the type of Yoga you participate in. Even if you are a regular at home Yoga participant taking a class can teach you new moves and help you overcome any barriers you had before.
The flexing and stretching in bowling works tendons, joints, ligaments, and muscles in the arms. All of these burn calories and help promote weight loss. And bowling is just fun. Try to stay away from the beer and nachos to keep this one a healthy date.
Salsa Dancing class
The fast paced movements of salsa dancing can burn over 400 calories an hour and teach you new movements. If you are looking for a date with loads of fun and a great way to get close to your partner salsa dancing should be your choice for a fitness date. If salsa music isn’t your taste there are many different forms of dance that promote constant movement and burn just as many calories.
Nutrition is a major part of fitness and cooking your own food is an absolute must for any fit couple. Signing up for a cooking class can teach you and your partner about working together as a team and teach you new things about your food. Be sure to find a class that prepares dishes in tune with your nutrition program. Not only will you have a great learning date but dinner is included!
Hiking is a great frugal date that doesn’t have the appearance of being inexpensive and can burn over 500 calories an hour! A beautiful hike through nature can be as relaxing as it is enjoyable. Wearing the proper clothing is a must for any hiking trip, and don’t forget water and plenty of healthy snacks.
