Working Out Together

When you’ve finally found a great relationship, you’ll start to notice that things you once did alone are now more fun together… eating, watching TV, drinking, etc. And if you’re both athletic people, you might start wanting to go to the gym or play sports together. Is this a good idea?

Pros:

  • Motivation: working out with your partner can be motivating and inspirational. Perhaps you didn’t really want to go at all, but they pushed you to go. Or maybe you were thinking of calling it quits for a day, but your partner isn’t ready to go yet. Similarly, being together will motivate you both to get healthy, for yourself, and for each other.
  • Friendly competition: a fun contest between the two of you can make working out a nice activity… perhaps you’ll play a game of raquetball or see who can do the most pushups. As long as it doesn’t get personal, competing a bit can be fun!
  • Better sex: higher confidence, better cardio, and a stronger core can make sex tons better if you’re both getting in shape. And if you’ve met on a site like SugarDaddie.com, you’ll want to stay in shape to keep your hot young thing interested ;). Ultimate plus!

Cons:

  • No alone time: sometimes working out is one of the few times an individual can be alone in their thoughts and really just enjoy time to themself. Taking that away could end up causing more problems if they’ve got a routine (alone) they enjoy.
  • Not-so friendly competition: there are those who don’t take losing so well, and others who relish a bit too much in winning. If you know you’re one of these types, playing athletic games together might not be the best idea.
  • Pressure: working out in front of someone else (especially someone you care about) can be nerve-wracking. If you tend to make weird faces that you never really want anyone else to see, doing them in front of a person you sleep with could put a damper on your workout, or even your relationship.

Ask yourself if you think you both can handle a workout partner who you also spend the rest of your time with… and then get on that treadmill!
