How to stretch with your partner – couples’ workout series

Personal trainers Claudia Newland and Nicola Addison, who are also a couple bring you a partner stretching video you – and someone else – will love 

Research shows that couples who train together, not only stay together, but stay with their gym. Those who workout together in the gym have a 6-per cent drop out rate, compared to those who work out alone with a 43 per cent drop-out rate, according to a Channel 4 documentary ‘How To Get Fit Fast’. Perhaps this is because in a survey of 1,007 adults in relationships by Be a Better You,  80 per cent of British couples say their partner motivates them to stay fit.

Working to co-ordinate together whilst working up a sweat is bound to get you and your partner communicating, laughing and boosting each others confidence. It might not even feel like working out!
