CHICAGO, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- There's more than one way to get your heart racing on Valentine's Day. Instead of over-indulging with an expensive dinner and high-calorie chocolates, Bally Total Fitness encourages couples to get physical with a holiday workout.
Fitness expert David Van Daff, Senior Director of Education and Development, offers his recommendations on how to strengthen your relationship and your body on the most romantic day of the year:
- Group Exercise Class. Whether it's Reaction Cycling, Yoga or Pilates, take a class together and motivate your significant other. Exercise is a proven aphrodisiac and raising your heart rate can have a positive impact on your health and love life. You don't need to be a Bally member to take a class – just come in with a guest pass to check one out.
- Couples Cardio. Find an aerobic activity to do side by side, from intervals on the treadmill to hills on the elliptical. Challenge your partner by raising the resistance and varying speed. The friendly competition will keep you engaged and ensure a satisfying workout.
- Joint Personal Training Session. A shared training session can be a bonding experience and a valuable opportunity to learn new exercise techniques. On average, a joint workout with a Personal Trainer is $30 per person for an hour-long session. Call your local Bally to schedule a couples' workout and forgo the pricey prix-fixe dinner.*
