The 4 Steps to Get Your Partner to Love the Gym as Much as You:
1) Be consistent.
If you want your relationship with your significant other to flourish, then it’s essential that you are not only committed but also consistent in what you do together. This means that if one day you decide that going out for dinner isn’t quite enough anymore, then next time around you’ll have something else planned. And so on and so forth until it becomes a habit.
2) Don’t take things too seriously.
Nothing makes you feel better than when someone takes their life into their own hands and doesn’t give a crap about the outcome. I mean, you don’t need to go through all the trouble of getting a tattoo or having your hair dyed just because it’s “fun” like some people seem to think it is. Just enjoy yourself!
And while you’re at it, why not try doing something fun with them? Go bowling? Play video games? Why not have a sleepover?
3) Make it fun.
There’s nothing worse than spending hours upon hours trying to work out with someone and they’re making it hard for you. So make it fun! Have them pick up the pace, run faster, jump higher, kick harder…whatever you gotta do to keep your mind off of what you really should be doing.
(And yes, I’m talking about YOU right now! Get to it!)
4) Praise them.
Remember that your partner isn’t just some tool you can use to help yourself achieve your goals. They are a person, with feelings, goals, and ambitions of their own. So if you really want to help, find out what they are and support them with all of your being!
(As strange as that sounds! Haha!)
