If there is a time to make an extra effort with your partner, then Valentines day is certainly the day to do it! Whether things have become a little stale recently and you want to get the spark back, or if you are just afraid of losing the spark in the first place, then it’s important to realise that sharing common interests with your other half, and spending quality time together is vital for a long lasting, healthy relationship.

There are few workouts that appeal to both male and female, but at Power Pilates UK, it’s proven that Pilates is certainly not just for girls! In fact our classes have become increasingly popular with guys too. The reformer machine makes this a challenging workout for both sexes, and we believe that working out with your partner, has many more benefits to offer than besides getting fit and toned. 

Here, Dating Guru James Preece shares his top reasons, as to why working out with your partner is a great idea, not only for fitness reasons, but also for your relationship too. 

1)When you exercise together, you can be each other’s cheerleader and personal trainer. You’ll be more motivated and ready for training. No more excuses to take things easy. Time will go quicker and you’ll be constantly encouraged and motivated. 

2) Sex Drive. Studies have shown that exercise can increase the male libido. This is mainly due to an increase in testosterone levels. As well as this, the endorphins that you’ll get from Pilates increase blood flow and you will feel happier and sexier. 

3) Shared interests are what help couples bond and stay together. Pilates increases your concentration and teaches you to be fully present. This is a great skill for any relationship. 
4) The more you train, the more improvements you’ll make. You can plan special rewards and treats to celebrate your successes. 

5) Another benefit is that you’ll be able to try what you learn at home. It’s fun to practice with each other and you’ll see faster results.
