The couple who sweats together, stays together!

Joseph Baena and girlfriend Nicky Dodaj were seen leaving a gym in Venice, California, together on Wednesday, over a week after celebrating their first anniversary.

Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s son, 22, wore a black Gold Gym’s sweatshirt and a pair of blue shorts, while Dodaj, also 22, wore an all-black ensemble.

On February 23, Baena celebrated their romantic milestone, penning a heartfelt tribute to his love.

“One year with my partner in crime!!!” he wrote on Instagram alongside a series of cuddly snaps. “Can’t wait for more,” he added, sharing that he was looking forward to all of the “adventures, laughs and celebrations to come! I love you.”

Leaving no doubt of her own affections, Dodaj replied by commenting, “love you cutie.”

Earlier that month, the couple celebrated another happy moment in their relationship: their second Valentine’s Day.

“My valentine 2 years in a row. Back in our favorite place where it all started,” she captioned a smiling shot of the pair, which was taken in Malibu, home to their shared alma mater, Pepperdine University.

In addition to his love for his girlfriend, Baena has a well-documented passion for fitness.

Baena is a big fan of going to the gym and frequently shares his fitness regimen online, which calls attention to just how much he looks like Schwarzenegger, who is a former professional bodybuilder.

“Got nominated for the #classicchallenge by @dakota_stinson_, so HERE YA GO!” he wrote last November, as he took part in a challenge that involved mimicking Schwarzenegger’s classic bodybuilding poses.

“Arnold 2.0 no doubt,” one of his followers commented on the snap, while another replied: “Starting to look like your father!”

Schwarzenegger had Baena with Mildred Baena, his former housekeeper whom he had an affair with. He also shares four kids with ex-wife Maria Shriver: Katherine, 30, Christina, 28, Patrick, 26, and Christopher, 22.
