There is a saying that "couples who train together, stay together". This Valentine's Day, you can put your love (and fitness) to test with our Couples Workout, designed by the Club's Wellness Director, Nathan Williams.
This is a fun and full-body workout with a couple of opportunities to get up close and personal. This workout has been designed with minimal equipment; you only need 1 or 2 single dumbbells for the whole session.
