Stay Healthy by Going on a Fitness Date For Valentine's Day

Are You Going on a Fitness Date For Valentine's Day?

I am super excited for this weekend to start. Instead of a fancy dinner or a box of chocolates, the mister and I are celebrating Valentine's Day by spending the weekend rock climbing in Yosemite. We're splurging a little though — instead of roughing it in a tent like we normally do, we've got a room booked at a nearby bed and breakfast and a couples massage scheduled for Saturday evening. I'm also excited because one of our friends is coming up on Sunday to go on a hike with us. Compared to past Valentine's Day celebrations, this year's will definitely be my most fitness-inspired.

It looks like I'm not the only one who likes to get closer to my beau by going on a fitness date. Anna Paquin spent some quality time with her costar and fiancé Stephen Moyer at the gym this week. (It looks like they're also on the celeb-lovin' Vita Coco kick!)

How about you?

My S.O. and I are going to an acro-yoga class for Valentines Day, followed by romantic recovery smoothies and a classic movie at a historic theatre :)

My husband's out of the state for the rest of the month, but I'm going to work out on Sunday by myself. My husband doesn't really "do" fitness dates, LOL. One year, I did have a fitness date for V-day...the guy I was dating at the time and I went for a nice run, then we showered and got dressed and went out to a nice dinner. It was a really fun time, actually.

Sounds like fun, Fit ! Alas, my better-half is my IronSherpa, not my workout buddy.

My bf and I are going to a salsa club where you take a class first and then a live band plays and there's a dance floor:)

Going on a hike with my boyfriend and dog and then grilling at home. I am not a very fancy gal but there WILL be chocolate covered strawberries.

i voted no because my valentines day will include too much champagne and cheese fondue, but i have the day after off from work and will be going to a hot yoga class with my girlfriends.

this year i'm not entirely sure what we're doing yet but we're somewhere in the middle between "fitness date" and "romantic dinner with candles and roses" - i've gone skiing and skating before on valentines day and to a concert or something fun like would include lots of "i love you smoochy smoochy" as well as dinner and flowers, butr i'm not a fan of making a reservation for a fancy restaurant and being there with all the other fancy fancy couples...i'd rather eat at home or somewhere more casual...this year i wouldn't be surprised if we do the same!
