It’s Men’s Health Month, but funny enough, I feel pretty confident that more women are aware of that than men. I say this because women tend to see their general physician more often than men do, women tend to talk about symptoms and health issues among their friends more often than men do, and my boyfriend admits he had no idea it was Men’s Health Month. If you’re in a relationship with a man, then you’ve likely noticed that you have to drag him kicking and screaming to get a new symptom checked out, or to go in for his yearly physical. Sometimes it amazes me that single men even survive without female companions…Since we have to push them to do most things for their health, we probably have to push them to work out, too. On that note, here are ways to get your man to join you in working out.
Lead by example
First of all, you can’t expect your partner to get into working out if you aren’t into it. So, lead by example. Ramp up your own fitness activities. Work out daily. Talk a lot about working out. Talk about how amazing it makes you feel. Put exercise on his brain.
