In honor of Valentines Day weekend, we thought it would be fun to ask some of our members why they love working out with their significant other. Instead of chocolate this year, maybe a workout with your love instead? Here is what some Training Day couples shared...
"We love working out together because it adds another dimension to our relationship where we can support each other to achieve fitness and health goals." Iver & Mackenzie
"We love working out together because she is my biggest cheerleader and I'm her biggest motivator. Just like in marriage, CrossFit brings a different challenge to overcome, but we get to look back on how much we have progressed." Shun & Karen
"Working out brings us closer together. We can do something that is active and gives the both of us a feeling we accomplished something." Joe & Tiffany
"I like working out with him because he makes me feel strong". (Kate) "For me, it's time spent together doing something we both enjoy and can support each other through suffering". (DeAndre) Kate & DeAndre
"Participating in CrossFit together keeps us challenged, engaged and encouraging towards one another, both in the gym and out. I also think it makes us better parents as we are setting a great example for our children". Bryan & Chrystal
"Russ and I love to exercise together, as it provides us the opportunity to encourage one another to achieve our individual goals. Plus, it is fun to laugh and cry about how sore we are for days to come." Russ & Brianna
"We love that we share a hobby that both challenges us and improves our quality of life. We're always pushing each other and learning from each other, but most importantly, we always try to make it fun. It's always been an ongoing joke in our household to see who can beat the others time". Carl & Alix.
"When I try to make my husband work out, this happens". Rhett & Lisa
"You had me at CrossFit... CrossFit is something special to Ben and I, it is actually how we met. We love working together as a team in and out of the gym, it not only makes us stronger but our relationship stronger." Ben & Tina
"CrossFit made us gym wife's! We love to workout together because we like the competition and encouragement. We continue to push one another each day. We both know what we are capable of doing, so it's nice to have that support day in and day out!" Jasmine & Beth #CrossFitgymwives
"We love to workout together for a couple reasons. It means we are holding ourselves accountable to always be healthy and fit for ourselves and our family. It's also inspiring to see each other working so hard. I enjoy giving him a smooch whenever I want and he thinks I'm hot!" Randy and Carriann
"Jarrod and I both grew up playing sports and are competitive by nature. CrossFit has given us a way to be competitive with each other and improve our health at the same time. It's been an incredible hobby for both of us and has a positive affect in so many areas of our lives. Not only are we getting stronger and becoming more fit, we are providing an example of a healthy lifestyle for our two young children." Jarrod & Becca
"Working out together is something we can commit to making time for around our busy lives. We push each other, then celebrate in our gains after a workout. I feel like I make him proud when I push harder than I thought I could and I thoroughly enjoy beating him in a WOD and rubbing it in his face. We want to grow old together being fit and strong so that our lives never slow down. I love how our girls are influenced by this commitment and hopefully it sets them up to make fitness a priority in their lives as well. Seeing so many couples come together in this way at the gym is so inspiring, and we have seen first hand how it has positively impacted countless marriages." Ronnie & Melissa
