Expectations vs. Reality: Working Out With Your SO

Ahhh, what could be better than working out with your significant other? I mean, you get to keep active, spend quality time with bae, and feel slightly less guilty when you hit up Chipotle (and Dunkin) later.  

Now fast forward to when you and your SO actually hit the gym and, well, things aren’t looking so hot anymore. A pool of sweat collects inside your Nike sports bra, you’re out of breath and you’ve lost your workout pal. It seems he was abducted by the body builders and has been brainwashed into talking about protein every .5 seconds.

Welp, I guess not every couple workout is #relationshipgoals and not every couple who sweats together stays together. Here’s what working out with your significant other is really like…
