The Celeb Guide to Staying Fit with Your Significant Other
TREAT YOUR WORKOUT LIKE A CELEBRATION
Celebrating and champagne aren't mutually exclusive. The Good Place actress Kristen Bell rang in the new year — and husband Dax Shepard's birthday — by working up a sweat with an afternoon couples workout (and a few kisses!).
SWITCH IT UP
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez — a.k.a the fitness queen and king — are #couplegoals when it comes to just about everything, especially working out together. The pair gave us a healthy does of motivation to take on 2019 when they hit the gym together on the first day of the new year.
"Jennifer and I mix it up," A-Rod previously told PEOPLE. "We like to lift, and we enjoy bike riding. She is a talented jock."
TAKE IN THE FRESH AIR
"We’re having the most amazing time challenging ourselves on the slopes this week," said Julianne Hough, who posted this photo with husband Brooks Laich on Instagram. "If you’re feeling stuck or need some inspiration, try getting outside! Even if it’s just a walk around the neighborhood, find a way to move your body and soak in the beauty Mother Nature has to offer."
PUSH EACH OTHER
Gina Rodriguez told Entertainment Tonight that she and boyfriend Joe LoCicero like to train together. "He's taught me everything," Rodriguez told ET. LoCicero returned the sentiment, saying, "Oh, she learns quick. She pushes me hard."
STAY AT HOME
She's a fitness fanatic and he's an NBA player, so there's no better time (or place) for Khloé Kardashian and boyfriend Tristan Thompson to spend quality time together than working out together in the reality star's equipment-packed garage.
TRAIN LIKE OLYMPIANS
Ciara and Russell Wilson stay in shape with the help of matching battle ropes at the gym — all while inspiring us to maybe do the same next time we're feeling athletic.
BRING YOUR FAMILY ALONG
CHANGE UP THE SCENERY
Staying active is a lot more fun when you're on vacation in, say, Italy. Bradley Cooper and his supermodel girlfriend, Irina Shayk, went for an invigorating swim in Lake Garda, simultaneously maintaining (and showing off) their beach bodies.
STICK TO A RHYTHM
Reese Witherspoon and husband Jim Toth are all about sticking together when it comes to morning jogs; the pair are literally always in sync.
REMEMBER: EXERCISE DOESN'T NEED TO TAKE PLACE AT THE GYM
Take it from Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder, who are pros at trying out-of-the-box workouts that feel more like fun (Hiking! Skiing! Acro-yoga!) than straight agony.
ACT AS EACH OTHER'S COACH
Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky have the right idea. The married duo are fans of kickboxing, which not only provides a full body workout, but also promotes teamwork among couples.
GO MATCHY-MATCHY WITH YOUR WORKOUT LOOK
Because matching your outfits at the club is so overrated. Coordinate your gym gear à la Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Shulman, who sported cute SoulCycle shirts for their spin class.
KISS BREAKS > WATER BREAKS
As the ancient Chinese proverb goes: A couple that SoulCycles together, stays together. Position your machines close together – like Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos – so you can exchange kisses for energy boosts throughout the workout. The class may hate you, but hey, you didn't come here to make friends.
GET A LITTLE COMPETITIVE
HOLD HANDS (AND YOUR PHONES)
Going on a long, vigorous stroll together? Add instant romance by holding hands and texting each other sweet nothings throughout the walk — like Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.
