Baby, it’s cold outside. But you can warm up and have a blast by making your winter workout “playtime!” So grab your sexy someone and take to the winter wonderland to make snow angels, have a snowball fight, or build a snow-love-child.
If you’re both less motivated in winter, take initiative and sign up for a co-ed winter sport, like hockey. Not only is the competitive teamwork healthy for building your relationship; so is getting out, being active, and being social with other members of your community.
Make It a Game
It might look like regular Tuesday evening game night to everyone else, but you two will actually be getting your sweat on when you fire up the Wii Fit for a competitive round of aerobic training. Invite friends over and make a regular night of it, or, better yet, keep it to yourselves and play Twister afterwards (wink).
Get Recreational Indoors
There’s nothing like a stimulating game of indoor volleyball or dodge ball to get your heart rate up. The more you and lover stay moving during chilly months; the more energy and positive emotion you’ll have to winter in general (rather than dreading it). So combat winter SAD (seasonal affective disorder) as a pair and you’ll come to enjoy and anticipate wintertime too.
