Strengthen your body and your bond with these wedding workouts – perfect for doing with your fiancé. You know what they say, couples that train together…
The best things about working out as a couple:
- Spending more time together = always a bonus!
- Helping and encouraging one another will build your trust with each other.
- Having your husband-to-be to compete with is all the motivation you need to work harder.
- He will get it when you ban chocolate cake and start doing ‘quinoa Saturdays’.
- You’ll see each other at your worst (aka sweaty, smelly and somewhat dishevelled) – and you’ll still want to get married. That’s true love right there!
