Plan a Fitness Date With Your Valentine
By Brandi Goodman
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, now is the time to make a plan for the evening. Skip the typical dinner and a movie date and plan a fitness date instead. It will give the two of you something to bond over in a special way while simultaneously improving your health.
Paintball or Laser Tag
Both paintball and laser tag are great options for a fitness date. They allow you to have some friendly competition together and while also getting in some exercise. Lasertag of Carmichael is located nearby or you could travel a bit farther to Sacramento for some paintball at Capital Edge Paintball Park the weekend after.
Don't just go out for a night of dancing at a club. Take a dance lesson together to learn something new. It's a great way to bond and share a unique experience. Check with Premier Dance in Rancho Cordova or Evolved Body Studio right in Gold River to see what choices are available. A local fitness center may have another option.
Tandem kayaking is another great option. You can head out on the water and take in all the gorgeous views of nature around you. It's peaceful and gives you lots of time to talk. You can rent a kayak from the Sacramento State Aquatic Center for just a small per-hour fee. Kayaking will provide a real arm workout.
Holding hands as you skate around the ice is another romantic option. Just a half-hour away in Roseville there is the Skatetown Ice Arena. A closer location is expected to open in Folsom in November 2019. Skatetown has class times in which you can learn to skate if one of you has never been.
Even playing miniature golf is a fitness option that doesn't feel like it. You'll get exercise walking along the course but won't feel out of breath or exhausted afterward. It gives you plenty of time to talk and spend time together as you leisurely make your way from one hole to the next. Monster Mini Golf is located in Cordova.
A fitness date is much more interactive and fun than just sitting at a movie. Plan one for Valentine's Day or any other time if you want a unique bonding experience with your partner. If you want to be sure you're up for the challenge, see your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. You'll have any joint restrictions removed so you can be as flexible as possible to manage whatever fitness adventure you and your date end up on.
