This post was inspired by a query sent out by a reporter for ideas for “exercise dates”. I have reprinted my suggestions to her in this article.
“How To Get Fit While Dating”
This suggestion is how a person can get fit while actively dating. It will give your readers an idea on how to use “exercise dates” to meet great women and get fit! (And even though I give this example using a man, a woman can use this idea as well.)
My suggestion is to: Invite the potential beau to train with them for a 5k race and, use the C25K (Couch to 5K) training program and app to help them do it.
The C25K program (app) uses weekly interval training that prepares the participant(s) to run a 5K (3.1 miles) race.
Each workout alternates between walking and running. Using this as a way to courtship will give the guy multiple opportunities to see, date, or court the person of their desire. (This idea can be used for both men and women!)
Here’s how the program can be used:
The guy invites a woman (or women) to train. They walk (giving them a chance to talk and get to know each other) and then run (giving them a workout). They continue this routine multiple times over the duration of that day’s workout.
The runners can go to a local “cool off” place to relax or rest after the workout is completed. (If the guy decides to invite more than one person then that can increase his chances of finding a great match.)
Using this idea gives the guy an opportunity to get to know his training partner, while spending time with her.
The training program last several weeks which allows for multiple “dates”.
If things work out, the guy has been able to form a great relationship!
If things don’t workout, they both will have received the benefits of the training!
