Cringe-worthy couple goals are all over social media, especially when it's #couplefitspo. Though couples at the gym who demand kisses after every sit-up give spouses who work out together a bad rep, working out with your partner does come with a number of benefits that'll help both your fitness and relationship progress.
Here's why a couple that keeps fit together, stays together.

YOU BUILD TRUST
If you're spotting someone's 150kg deadlift, or being their support for squats, you know there has to be trust between you two. Helping someone through a taxing physical situation also allows you to see your other half push their limits, and provides an opportunity for mutual respect and encouragement.
YOU KEEP EACH OTHER IN CHECK
Telling yourself you'll skip hitting the gym "just this one time" tends to build up if you're not feeling motivated. Having someone around to keep you in check does wonders for your self-esteem, motivation and determination to be fitter and healthier every day. It's not just a one-way street, but keeping each other in check can prove to be mutually beneficial when either one tends to succumb to laziness.

GYM TIME IS QUALITY TIME
Especially if you lead hectic, conflicting schedules, it might be hard to find some one-on-one time. Gym time is an opportunity for the two of you to enjoy some productive downtime, and you can make it fun by signing up for classes or trying out new workouts together.
