Healthy Date Night Ideas:
Instead of staying in for Netflix and chill, your health (and partner) will thank you for getting out and being active with these healthy date ideas. Burn some calories and experience a great time with any one of these fun outdoor activities:
Hop on your bikes – or rent from your nearest shop – and cruise to your favorite restaurant for a healthy dinner al fresco. An hour of biking burns about 380 calories, so riding home is a great way to burn off a few of those dinner calories! Or, be tourists in your city; two wheels is a great way to explore and discover places you wouldn’t by car.
2. Stand-up Paddleboard
Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is a perfect way to get out on the water on a warm summer day. Not only is it a blast, it’s also a fantastic workout; an hour burns about 250 calories. To really challenge your balance – or each other – try a little yoga on your board or see who can paddle across the lake the fastest!
3. Lawn Games
Liven up an evening date with some lawn games! Bocce ball, bags, volleyball, badminton, or Polish (ladder) golf are all fun options sure to bring lots of laughs while burning a few calories!
4. Mini Golf
Who doesn’t love a fun round of mini golf?! Get the (friendly) competitive juices flowing and challenge your partner to a round and burn about 100 calories an hour. Loser buys dinner!
5. Farmer’s Market
Switch it up with a morning date to your local farmers market. Grab a coffee or tea when you get there, and stroll hand-in-hand through the aisles of fresh produce and goods. While you’re there, you’ll learn more about your partner’s likes and dislikes. Get adventurous with your food and pick up some tasty goodness to make a healthy lunch together.
6. Outdoor Yoga
Yoga under the sun brings savasana to another relaxing level. Many parks offer outdoor yoga classes throughout the spring and summer or simply enjoy your own yard. (In fact, yoga is a great way to multiply the benefits of your daily workout regimen helping stretch joints, and reduce stress and anxiety). A yoga date is a great way to relax and unwind – 30 minutes of vinyasa yoga burns up to 130 calories.
Work together as a team kayaking out on the water. Pack a healthy lunch – make sure it’s in a waterproof container! – and stop ashore for a picnic. You’ll likely burn it off, as an hour of paddling burns close to 300 calories!
