Date Night Ideas for Active Couples
Finding a soulmate may be rare, but finding someone who loves fitness and exercise as much as you do is even more rare. If you have found someone like that, chances are that you both need ideas for dates that aren’t like the conventional ones that most people enjoy.
If you both are fitness lovers, it’s safe to bet that you both don’t enjoy sitting in one place and talking and calling it a date. If you’re all for finding date ideas that involve exercise and fitness, here are some activities that you can enjoy with your partner on a date night.
Ideas for Date Night
Snorkeling: Snorkeling is an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. If you want to spend some quality time with your partner, try snorkeling and you’ll burn 104 calories per 10 minutes.
What’s better than swimming for hours and to be surrounded by majestic and beautiful underwater wildlife? You can also make the date more fun by adding water skiing or going for a paddleboat ride.
If you’re planning to go away for an entire day, a combination of these and more water-related activities can give you the perfect mix of romance, serenity, and exercise.
Paddleboarding: Make sure your entire body gets a good workout and burn a whopping 611 calories per hour. It’s not easy but will give you and your partner a beautiful setting where you can enjoy some memorable and romantic moments together.
Rock Climbing: One of our favorite fun activities for an active couple! You get to explore nature with your partner and work every muscle in your body. On your way up, you’ll be working off about 454 calories per hour, with another 284 per hour burnt on the way down.
Make it a weekend getaway and add some nice long hikes to your trip. You and your loved one can camp out in the forest, explore nature, sleep under a starry sky and enjoy a fun-filled weekend together.
Trail Running: Have you seen all the obstacle course races popping up around the country? Don’t wait until there’s one near you! Head out for a run at a hiking trail near your house and make a day of it.
It’s a great leg workout, you can challenge each other as well as yourself, and you’ll burn calories in a massive way. Even at a slow pace, an hour long trail run will melt off 774 calories. Kick up the speed and you’ll burn even more!
Ice Skating: Beat the heat and have a fun night together! Now, if you majored in falling like myself this might not work but for those of you that are more athletically-inclined, go for it!
Even if it doesn’t turn out as romantic in real life as it’s portrayed in the movies, you can still be sure that it will be a great couples activity that won’t feel like exercise — and you’ll be burning about 300 calories per 30 minutes.
Kayaking/Canoeing: Perfect if you have a lake or river nearby! Partner kayaking or canoeing gives you and your love a chance to build or test your chemistry and enjoy an activity that tests your strength and stamina.
Combined with the serene and calm atmosphere of a lake, this can be the perfect date activity for the two of you. To make it even more romantic, plan ahead so that you’ll be wrapping things up just in time to watch the sunset from the shore. Sounds perfect, right?
Theme Parks: While this activity may not be the one with the most exercise, it sure can be a romantic and exciting getaway, and it’s a perfect date for adrenaline junkies. You can enjoy fun and thrilling rides and activities without ever feeling like you’re working out.
You’ll rack up plenty of steps on your FitBit in as you walk throughout the park together, just make sure to choose healthy options when you stop to share a treat between attractions. Better yet, pack a lunch if that’s allowed and save the cash and worry!
In the end, it’s all about what you guys love to do together. It’s not that difficult to combine romance and your love for fitness together to get a perfect romantic outing.
