Couples who get in shape together, stay together — instead of the usual dating activities such as dinners or movies, why not try getting fit together?
Play catch-up and chat-up or simply immerse in the company of your spouse while sweating it out!
You don’t have to conquer Mount Everest with your spouse to be the perfect fit for each other. Falling into pace right alongside one another along the lush walking trails of Singapore is pretty much the same thing. Explore different walking trails and turn it into a weekly or monthly routine. Tune in to your partner’s life and keep your eyes peeled for what nature has to offer!
Here are some hiking routes to get started on besides the famous Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Fort Canning Park:
Namaslay the weekend and get down on the yoga mat for an hour or two. Yoga keeps you grounded — it builds strength, promotes an open mind and teaches you to honour the individual that resides in your partner and you. Why? “Yoga” is a Sanskrit word and one of its translations means “union”!
Explore different yoga studios in Singapore, sign up for trial classes or simply settle on getting two yoga mats for your home. Here are some hotspots worth considering:
Experience a different state of zen when you stride across an indoor air weapons range made for air rifle and pistol marksperson.

Here are two places in Singapore you should be checking out:
Cycle next to each other and head out for brunch! With the number of bike-sharing initiatives sprouting up in Singapore, it’s easy to grab a bike and hit the road with your spouse. Gear up for safety and plan your routes ahead — cycling is a moderate-intensity sport that keeps your fitness level (and carbon footprint) in check.
Leisure bike trails for cyclists besides the good old East Coast Park:
Spice up your dates with these moderate-intensity sports. While we generally do not encourage thumb tapping on the phone as exercising, do share this with your spouse and plan for the weekends in advance. Cheers to living a balanced married life!
