It’s been said that happy couples tend to get fatter together – and for fairly logical reasons. Dates mean a lot of going out for indulgent meals, drinks, and desserts – or lounging around the TV with guilty pleasure foods. Studies also suggest people in happy relationships are less concerned about attracting new partners, so keeping in shape may be a lower priority.
So, just in time for Valentine’s Day, Find Your Trainer, a service dedicated to helping you find a personal trainer on demand, is launching a partner training tool to help small groups get fit together.
Find Your Trainer lets you specify the type of training you prefer (cardio, weight training, CrossFit, etc.), the neighborhoods you want to stay in, and whether you’d like to work out at the gym, a boutique, or in the privacy of your home. You can also pick a price point you’d like to stay within, the trainer’s gender and preferred training times.
The results lets you sort through the trainers’ reviews, hourly rates and schedules so you can choose a trainer who can best accommodate your needs. With the tool, you are not committed to packages with any trainer nor need a gym membership. Buying training sessions in packs, however, gives you up to 10 percent off – with sessions starting at $49 an hour.
In group training, partners pay 1.5 times the regular hourly fee, while small groups of up to six get up to 60 percent in savings per person, which is a great deal for friends looking to get fit together via professional help.
When you book the session, you can also supply your goals and any health notes to your trainer ahead of time to skip the paperwork and spend more time actually working out. It’s worth noting, however, that not all trainers may offer group training, especially at launch.
Find Your Trainer is currently live in Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Phoenix. If you and your partner or friends have been munching on a lot of unhealthy food over the Super Bowl, then it might be time to get moving.
