Ball and Chain Bootcamps
Why not do something healthy with the one you love? Doing high intensity training like we do in Urban Warrior also boosts testosterone levels. Here’s a link to an article titled “Pump Iron to Pump Libido“.
“A revved up sex drive may also occur from other sympathetic hormones like epinephrine (adrenalin) that make a person more energized, or even opioids like beta-endorphins that can produce a “feel-good” effect. Or it may be that the psychological self-confidence that you get from being physically fit, accomplishing fitness goals (exercising on a regular basis, for example) or simply losing weight boosts your self-esteem and helps you to feel sexier”.
Exercise together and there’s a good chance your sex life is going to rock (good selling point for the boys or randy chicas out there). Don’t be afraid to use this fact to coerce your partners into getting fit with you.
Here’s a link to a video by Lou Riley comparing the stages of a workout with the stages a relationship.
Most couple’s boot camps are about fast food style relationship overhaul, lots of talking and expressing emotions. Here’s a link to an article about a relationship boot camp. I’m not talking about anything like this. I’m just talking about sweating together.
All to often my female clients have changed their bodies into something smokin hot and left their partners in the dust. That isn’t going to help with ‘things’ if you know what I mean. Working out together is a fantastic way to connect and support each other and have fun doing something other than eating or drinking. It can be really hard on a relationship when one partner gets their mojo back and the other partner isn’t stepping up. I’ve seen it many times.
This could be the next BIG thing in fitness. Who knows!
And in case you didn’t know, I offer a couple’s membership rate of $50 per month for the add on member.
