No matter how devoted you are to your man, no matter how adorably, truly, and lovingly devoted he is to you, there are always going to be moments when you want to (no, need to) crack him right in his big, stupid face. Love's funny like that.
Well, this Valentine's Day, you can get all those complicated, punchy emotions out of your system while breaking a healthy sweat with some couples boxing sessions. Nowhere near as weird (or violent) as it sounds, the classes are just one of Park Slope fitness studio Bodiesynergy's V-Day offerings for pairs. Naturally, there are warmups, strength training, and boxing instruction for starters. But, after all that, you will indeed have a chance to safely spar with your sweetie thanks to professional oversight and padding.
DNAinfo quotes instructor Joanna Paterson, who says: "We don't often, in polite Park Slope society, get the chance to whack...each other. It's about letting yourself go." She continues, "Couples want to get excited about each other, and this is a great way to do it. To me, as a professional athlete, watching my partner get sweaty is exciting." Well, when you put it that way, it does sound rather passionate.
Of course, the real benefit here (besides giving your boy a right cross to the chin), is that both of you are working out together. Health is something that can and should be shared — and isn't sharing what this whole holiday is all about? Just remember to keep your mitts up and your punches above the belt. (DNAinfo)
