I still remember going to the gym together at 5 o’clock in the morning. My alarm clock would go off at 4 o’clock in the morning, followed by a phone call from Anthony, making sure that I was awake and getting ready. I would sleep on the drive into the gym. But by the end of our workout and throughout the day, I appreciated that he had helped me to fit in my morning workout.
I could tell then that going to the gym was a way of life for Anthony and I knew this was something he would continue to do for the long-haul. I also thought that I was in for a lot of years of training from him (insert wink emoji).
When Anthony and I had our first child, we had a lot of adjusting to do. We had a human alarm clock that woke us both up at 3 o’clock in the morning. It was no longer two but three and then four schedules to coordinate, as we had our second child when our first was two. In the last five years, our miniature versions of ourselves coupled with growing our careers and business, have altered how we fit working out in.
We may not be able to work out together or partake in the same fitness activities as we used to, but we continue to support each other to increase the chances of either of us fitting any in.
Here are 3 suggestions for things you can do to be a supportive partner when it comes to fitness:
