Valentine’s Day usually includes chocolates and dinner, but you don’t have to break your diet to have a good time. Whether it’s a romantic night with your significant other or a fun night out with friends, you can stay on track with your diet and exercise with these fun ideas for a healthy Valentine’s Day:
Enjoy a Massage—This can be a relaxing and healthy option to enjoy on Valentine’s Day. Pamper yourself after a workout or a long day of activities. Massages not only help the body to release toxins and function better, but it can help to release endorphins into the bloodstream which make you feel better.
Take a Class—Motivate your significant other or friends in a quick workout class at the Center. Learn a new dance to keep you moving and have fun in a dance class. Discover a healthy and tasty recipe in a cooking class. There are several types of classes you can take to try something different that will keep you active and on track with your healthy lifestyle.
Give the Gift of Health—Cards, flowers and chocolates aren’t the only gifts that are Valentine’s Day appropriate. Give a gift your fitness partner or friends would love like a sports watch, activity tracker, a yoga mat or their favorite healthy snack. You can also buy accessories such as headphones, a water bottle or that nice gym bag that they’ve mentioned. Workout gear and running shoes would also be great for the partner or friend who would rather hit the gym than a box of chocolates. Presenting these gifts will motivate your partner or friends to stay focused on their fitness goals.
Remember, you can also ask our staff at the Member Services Desk how you can purchase a guest pass for FREE access to the fitness floor at the Center as a gift for your partner or friends.
