ice skating on valentines day | active date ideas

Whether you are a certified fitness couple, or you are just looking to burn off some of that holiday chocolate, these five active date ideas are the perfect way to spice up your Valentine’s Day…

Ice Skating

Ice skating is the ideal Valentine’s Day date. Not only is it a great wintertime activity in general, it pretty much forces you to hold hands. Not to mention, it gives you a great excuse to grab some coffee afterwards.

Indoor Rock Climbing

Take your romance to new heights with an indoor rock climbing session. Trying new things together is always great for any couple, and rock climbing together can help instill trust in one another.

Dancing Class

Few things are more romantic than a well-executed salsa. If you don’t already know how to do it, there’s no better time to learn than Valentine’s Day. The music, close contact, and lead-follow rhythm of the dance are sure to get your heart pumping.

Go For a Bike Ride

If you are lucky enough to live in a warm-weather climate, take advantage of the great outdoors by going on a bike ride. It is a great way to burn calories, explore your local surroundings, spend time together, and most importantly – have fun!

Work Out Together

There’s an old(ish?) adage that says, couples that sweat together stay together. If you are looking for something less romantic and more out-of-the-box, try working out with your valentine. If weight-lifting isn’t your thing, you can go for a run or even play sports together.
