Anna Langridge, Founder of Wellbody Health & Fitness and 1FitLife encourages you to step out of normality this Valentines Day and buy a gift with a difference


Every day, across Dorset, individuals are attending health clubs, unrolling yoga mats, pounding the pavement, road bikig across the Purbecks and signing up to new fitness challenges. But fitness is so much more fun with your partner.

Why not give your loved one a Valentines gift with a difference and sign you both up to a new fitness challenge for this year? Couples who sweat together tend to stay together and this is why: • It will improve the efficiency of your workouts. There’s no hiding from your partner, pretending you’re ill or held up at work when you can’t be bothered to go out and exercise!!

• Bringing fitness into your social life means you’ll meet new friends together and join a community of people who want to do the same as you. It will also make your weekends and evenings much more fun-filled and rewarding.

• Most importantly, fitness is known to increase your happiness and this will have a big impact at home and in the romance department!

So, what are your options?

• Road biking is one of the fastest growing sports in Europe. There are many clubs that you can join and events running throughout Dorset year round.

• Sign up to the ‘Run Bournemouth’ fun run, put on your trainers and start following your training plan.

• Prefer something a little more sedate? Sign up to a yoga retreat together at The Retreat New Forest as a Valentines Gift and start your yoga journey together.

• Walk the Julia’s House Jurassic Coast Charity Trek, there’s nothing more bonding than walking and talking.

• Pier to Pier Swim – gift each other a wet suit for Valentines and if you prefer warmer weather you can start your training in an indoor pool.

So step outside your comfort zone, forget the roses and chocolates and make your Valentines gift extra special this year!
