They used to say the couple who play together stay together. That was when the couples you most admired were the fun ones who were always arms in the air in the thick of the party, spreading the joy around. Well, that lot are going the way of leatherback turtles. Give it two years and, like crooked teeth, they will be quaint anachronisms from a more louche time. Make way for the phenomenon of the smug fit couple or Smufs as we might call them. You have seen these couples, on a treadmill or jogging in a park near you, working on their bodies and their relationship with equal commitment.

We all know the benefits of a workout buddy — they're motivating, they keep you accountable, and they help pass the time at the gym. According to a study published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine , exercising with a partner can double your performance, which is a total workout win. So, who better to get fit with than your significant other? You wake up with them, you go home with them — they're basically a built-in excuse buster for when you feel like slacking. A recent study out of Indiana University found that working out with your partner or spouse could help you stick with it — only 8 percent of the participants in the study who exercised with their spouses quit compared to half of the participants who exercised without their partners or spouses. That's a pretty good reason to start getting sweaty together.
