Couples Who Work Out Together, Stay Together: Niecy Nash’s Husband Surprises Her With A Workout Date
I don’t think there is anything more encouraging for a person hoping to meet a certain fitness goal than to have their partner by their side cheering them on as they make it happen. Case in point: Niecy Nash and her husband Jay Tucker.
The 46-year-old Scream Queens star has been trying to “get in shape” for the Emmys next month, and to help her do it, Tucker swapped their usual date night for a workout day date. She thought they were having their usual fun, but instead, Tucker took her to a studio. He called on trainer Michael Blanks along with a bevy of the couple’s closest friends to come together for some fun and fitness. Nash was surprised as each person showed up to work up a sweat:
During the packed session, the always comical Nash even found time to turn things into a twerk session with her hubby, and he had no problem dropping it like it was hot for his lady:
In the end, Nash and her friends (including actresses Emayatzy Corinealdi, AJ Johnson and Aisha Hinds) were left pretty exhausted from their workout:
And also very ready to eat:
But more than anything, Nash was feeling grateful that she has a husband who is so thoughtful and supportive. Nash lost more than 50 pounds a few years ago and openly attributed that success to the encouragement of Tucker and her three kids (from her previous marriage).
Tucker knows that there is truth to the idea that the couple who works out together, stays together. Hence the reason the pair, married for five years, is clearly so happy together. Love it!
