Make a Date Out of the Gym

Is Going to the Gym the Perfect Date?

After a long workday I was excited to get a call from my boyfriend — he had planned the "perfect date" for us. Rushing home to get ready, I was puzzled when he showed up in a t-shirt and carpenter pants. The "perfect date" I envisioned involved a little something more than the faded team building shirt he was wearing. "Get excited," he said, "we are going to the climbing gym!"

OK, here's the deal: we go to the gym all the time. And as much as I love an awesome fitness date, the gym is not at all what I envisioned when I heard the word "perfect." The gym, to me, is part of my normal routine.

The silver lining: after climbing, the BF took me to my favorite restaurant for a pretty epic meal. Did he have it right all along . . .

Ah, to be single again! When I was dating my now-husband, we went for a run together once...bad idea. He couldn't keep up with me and he whined the whole time. If I were to take him to the gym with me, he would half-heartedly do a few things and then he'd say "Ok, can we GO now? I'm BORED!" Seriously, a 7 year old would probably be a better workout buddy than my husband.

Absolutely not! I already go there as a part of my regular routine. I wouldn't mind if I got a free pass to another to try a new class, but I wouldn't consider it a "date." Then again, I'm married, does every outing I go on with my husband constitute a date?

I would love to be able to get my boyfriend to go to the gym with me, since that means he'd go, but I would never think of it as a date. It's just something I do anyway.
