How to get your boyfriend to the gym

Is your boyfriend a "couch potato"? These tips should get your boyfriend to the gym without being a nag:

1. Be involved with his progress be as interested and excited as he is about his training and development. For example, help him measure his arms and other muscle groups.

2. Do the workout where they feel comfortable - the gym can be intimidating, especially when their man-card feels threatened. 

3. Use the workout as an excuse to build on your relationship - go on a jog together around the neighborhood or take a group exercise class, you might even meet a few new workout buddies to keep you both accountable. 

4. Reward him - set goals together and reward him as he achieves his goals. He'll stay motivated and have something to look forward to.

5. Find the right activity - be creative and join an adult softball or volleyball league. Some people hate spending their evening at the gym after a long day at work. 

Is having a less active partner a deal breaker for you?
