That's a double-duty activity - beautifies yourselves and your garden at the same time!

I, too, am blessed with a great dh who encourages me to get outside and walk, or run, or bike. I would go out far less if he didn't ask so much!

Kevin (My husband) and I go to the gym together 5 days a week, we get on the treadmill for 30 minutes and it always pushes me to stay strong and to push myself, then we do weights then the spin bike for 30 minutes and we talk until the top of the hill lol and then we get on the rowing machine for 20 minutes and that is our cool down. It is something we get to do together without an interruptions, just us being the best we can be for each other and ourselves. We always go in the morning so it is easier to be strong parents to our 3 children, and it keeps us strong with our food choices.

Amaze Yourself.

we both work a lot so when we walk to the Y and take our extreme water aerobics class together we are enjoying the time and conversation that we would not otherwise have!

Good idea, KIMPOSSIBLE.

Hope it's not much longer for you, SWAMPKITTY.

We don't get to spend much time together. Now that it's nicer outside, I'm hoping to coax him on a few walks.

Before my back injury DH and I would do the Power 90 videos together. It's motivating for both of us to see the other workout so hard; it keeps us both going. And it's so cool to immediately share with the other when we can do more of an exercise or use a heavier weight. I can't wait until my chiropractor tells me I can start working out with him again!

A year from now, you will wish you'd started today.

That's one of the reasons my hubby and I take ballroom dancing. We get to learn a new skill and get exercise that we are both enjoying. Plus the studio is 45 minutes away, so we also get the ride to and from to talk our listen to audiobooks together, which gives us something else to do together - discuss the books were listening to!

You don't stop laughing. because you grow old, you grow old. because you stop laughing!

Good idea! That's what dh and I did when I was training for a 5K - he ran with me 3 times a week.

we have very little time together except on weekends, working out together gives us a few more hours every week!

My husband works a lot of hours, but on weekends we often work out at the gym together, but it's usually he does his thing and I do mine. If he is home when I finish work he will walk up to meet me and then we have a good visit and walk home together which I love! We take lots of walks together as often as we can in the evenings. Sometimes we bike together. I hope to do some bike trips in the future, hike in the mountains, and ballroom dancing would be top of my list too!
That sounds fantastic!!

It's funny you just posted this.

I just had a personal trainer come in and make a workout for my hubby and I. I have worked with her before, but my hubby hasn't. We're not doing the same things exactly but we can work out side by side.

We have been taking ballroom dancing lessons together for the past 2 years. My husband is fairly quiet and this has helped him come out of his shell a bit. We now have something to "work" on together. Sometimes we will work on a new move in the kitchen. I think at a time when we are both busy, it is time that has been scheduled for US. We also have a 45 minute drive there and back to talk. If we aren't talking we listen to books on tape, which gives us something to talk about.

It has been GREAT!!
Sam

That's wonderful that you are seeing such positive results from the working out and that you are able to do so with your wife!

I would say the biggest benefit for my dh and me is that we then get some time together. With two full-time jobs and three young'uns (two teens and a 'tween), we barely have time alone.

A benefit for our marriage is that I am getting stronger and can keep up with him when we hike or bike now! Of course, strength, flexibility, and endurance are great in all aspects of our marriage...

Mine works most of the time and I workout out by myself. After he gets home from work we usually have just enough time to talk and that's it for us.

Working out with my wife is really paying off in more ways than one. I feel better and she told me the other day she loves hugging me even more now that my back has become more muscular and she can no longer feel my bones! Also, I just injured my right shoulder and I know if I had not been working out it would be much worse.
How has working out with your spouse paid off for you?


An American monkey, after getting drunk on brandy, would never touch it again, and thus is much wiser than most men.
