Our Class Date-ercise London
1) Where has the trend for dating and exercise come from?
For 2019 we are seeing a trend towards dating mixed with exercise, and it makes a huge amount of sense. The old divides between men and women are lessening on many levels, so mixed fitness classes are on the up. We’re also seeing dating app frustrations as single people get fed up of misleading profiles. They’re looking for new ways of meeting people and Dateercise meets those needs.
2) Who is it for, who can have a go?
It’s for any single person who is interested in getting fit and meeting other single people at the same time. The class is for women meeting men and will take place at Right Path Studio Liverpool Street. There will be a range of couple friendly exercises that you complete as a twosome, and they’ll be at a level where you can still chat. Instead of the usual boring getting to know you questions, you can see first-hand what someone is really like. Are they determined, are they up for a laugh? Exercise is a great leveller. At the end of the class will be healthy cocktails.
3) What are the benefits?
The main benefit of Dateercise is giving yourself the best chance of meeting someone who has a shared love of fitness. Quite often, when a couple gets together and only one of them is into fitness, then the other gives up on exercise. Having this shared interest from the start means you’re more likely to keep up healthy fitness habits longer term. When you train as a twosome you get used to setting goals together, you get in the habit of motivating and supporting each other, and your communication improves. It is a a good way to build couple intimacy. Research has also shown that when couples do a fun activity together there relationship can improve.
4) Why is it especially suitable for Winter?
We’re launching Dateercise in the winter because that’s the time when most of us start to really take our exercise plan up a notch. We want to be looking our very best, and the carefree, relaxed days of winter are perfect for trying out a new, fun exercise class like Dateercise. Roll on the winter of love!
