Couples who Train Together...

Couples exercise class

We’ve all heard the phrase – but far from just being fodder for self-congratulatory millennials on Instagram, there’s some scientific credence behind the notion that couples who train together, stay together. Studies have shown that joint participation in physical activity can lead to couples reporting increased satisfaction with their relationship, and this is especially true if you share a common fitness goal such as running a charity race or playing a sport like badminton as a pair.

Other aspects of exercising can further deepen an emotional bond. One study has posited that, because the physiological side-effects of exercise, (such as sweaty palms, higher heartrate and shortness of breath) mimic the body’s reaction to romantic attraction and arousal, our brains can sometimes get the two mixed up. So, even if you don’t feel like you look a million bucks after a heavy workout, if you’ve done it with your partner, they might feel decidedly hot under the collar for a different reason…

With all this in mind, and in the month of love no less, Abingdon Sports and Leisure are offering a February-long special ‘Couple Goals’ sign up offer for co-habiting partners. They’re offering their Premium Membership for just £49 per month for two people, saving you a whopping £200. Membership gets you access to the gym, pool, exercise classes, spinning, squash, and badminton – more than enough to have a go at with your other half this February. And, because love is in the air, they’re also offering a FREE personal gym programme each, plus another £49 off if you pay upfront.

So, sign up now and who knows, perhaps date night could leave you both fitter, healthier and happier.

Terms and conditions apply, visit Abingdon Sports and Leisure's website for more details.

In an ideal world we could herald the change in seasons by throwing open our windows and allowing the sweet scents of nature to fill our homes. In practice, we can help nature along a little by using fragrance to create the ambiance we are seeking, be it posh hotel lobby, an intimate boudoir or even summer on the Med.
