1 take a classNo matter what your cooking abilities are, there’s always room for improvement. Take this Valentine’s Day as an opportunity for you and your swolemate to learn new cooking techniques. It will also help you acquire kitchen skills to make your Sunday meal prep faster.

2 couples massage

You and your swolemate work your bodies hard all year round whether you’re at the gym, on the field, or hitting the pavement, so reward yourselves this Valentine’s Day. The best way to treat your body is with a couples massage! Let a professional work out all the knots in your sore muscles. After your massage, you will feel rejuvenated and ready for your next workout.  
3 hike

hikingGo For Getting outside and going for a hike with your swolemate is a great way to be active.  Find a local trail and go exploring! Be sure to bundle up if you live in a cold climate to avoid hypothermia. Remember for any climate it’s always important to stay hydrated!

4 hit the gym

For some hitting the gym means taking a trip down memory lane. Revisit the place where you first locked eyes, across the rows of sweaty bodies doing squats and bench presses, and fell in love. There's no better way to spend the most romantic day of the year, than back where it all started?

5 bike to gymIf you live in a larger metropolitan area and choose to dine out for Valentine’s Day, pick a local cafe that features organic and healthy options. Choose a restaurant close enough so you can walk or bike there. Forgo the fancy attire for some comfy sneakers and take advantage of the commute as a chance to get a little extra cardio into your day.

6 cook a romantic meal

7 winter sport

February is the perfect time to go ice skating or skiing with your swolemate. Either an indoor or outdoor ice skating rink will do the trick. You can also visit a colder climate and go skiing.

8 dancing You can sign up for a dance class or even hit up a local dance club if that’s more your speed. It's not about how much skill you have on the dance floor. Dancing is about having fun and staying active!

9 run togetherDon’t let all of your time in the gym go to waste. Put all of your hard work and training to the test this Valentine’s Day. Go for a run with your swolemate and strengthen your heart at the same time.

10 yoga

Let go of your inhibitions and get flexible with your swolemate in a couples yoga class. If you’re looking to turn up the heat, try hot yoga, where the temperatures easily reach 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit. During a time of year when we pack on the extra layers to stay warm, it’s nice to have another reason to shed a few.

11 water sportsIf you’re lucky enough to live in an area where you have warm weather year-round then head outdoors. Shake things up a bit and take your swolemate out on the water this Valentine’s Day. Go kayaking, surfing, rafting, or water skiing together!

12 horseback riding

13 amusement parkIf you and your swolemate are a couple of adrenaline junkies, then an amusement park is the perfect setting for you! This Valentine’s Day ride a few coasters and play games. Remember to pack your own snacks and meals because nothing is worse than binge eating cotton candy and funnel cake.

14 play game twotennis

A little bit of competition never hurt anyone. Bond with your swolemate over a friendly game of golf or tennis to get your heart rate up. Practice your own form and be sure to get behind your partner to help guide them towards their perfect swing too.

15 rock climbing

Strap on your harness and get ready for some action! Never been rock climbing before? No problem! Just hit up an indoor rock climbing gym and let a trainer show you how it’s done. If you’re more experienced, go climbing outdoors.

16 fitness game

If you’re stuck inside, or just don’t feel like going out for Valentine’s day, you and your swolemate can always stay active with indoor games. Play fitness-themed video games on a Nintendo Wii, PlayStation Move, or Xbox Kinect.
17 go to warGet out all of your pent up aggression with a nice healthy game of paintball or laser tag. Team up with your swolemate against the world, or take on each other and see who comes out on top!
