Valentine’s Day means dates with your loved one. But don't think that quality time needs to be spent at a cozy restaurant or  any other traditional date spot. Try sweating it out together at the gym. Exercising with a special someone is not only a way to partake in some friendly competition, but a way to stay accountable to your training goals.

Lift and spot.  Whether at the gym or at home, strength training is an important part of a healthy workout routine and is often more effective when done in pairs.  Lifting weights with a loved one should reflect the strengths of your relationship, too, because the best weight lifting partners are trustworthy, accountable and motivating. You can spot each other with the heavy weights, help each other with form and encourage each other to reach your goals.

With small group training the workouts can be modified to fit the needs of each individual, yet still have the energy and enthusiasm that is included with a group. Whether you’re training in a small studio, or a larger facility, it takes minimal space, and can always be adapted to the equipment available.
