Bored with the same old date ideas? Try these fun and physically active date ideas to get your sweat on with your significant other.

Spending quality time with your significant other is important but doing the same thing for date nights can get old after a while. Maybe you’ve been to all the restaurants in your area or don’t want to go to movies again. You are bored of doing the same thing all the time. If you’re looking for something new to do, try some of these physically active date ideas to switch up your normal date routine and get a workout in at the same time.

1. Walking or Hiking

This one may sound boring but there are so many ways to make walking fun. You could plan a walking tour of your town or city. You could walk around a park and pack a picnic to eat while there. You could walk to your favorite restaurant instead of driving. Walk around a local museum and check out the exhibits.

2. Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is not for the faint of heart. You may think that all you are doing is sitting on top of a horse but that is completely false. Horseback riding requires using your arms, legs, and core muscles to balance and communicate with the horse.

3. Biking

Plan a bike trip around your town or city. You could bike to your favorite restaurant or local spots. Pack a picnic and ride your bikes to a local park.

4. Exercise Class

There are so many fun exercise classes you can sign up for. You could do dance, yoga, spin, kickboxing, and more. The options are endless.

5. Indoor Rock Climbing

Check to see if there are any local indoor rock-climbing facilities near you. This is a fun activity that you can both work on together. Many facilities will give you a short lesson on the basics to get you started.

6. Swimming

Find a local pool, lake, or beach that you could plan a short trip to. Pack some food, towels, and sunscreen.

7. Tennis

Many local parks have tennis courts. Tennis is a great sport to get you moving. Running after that little ball will have you sweating in no time.

8. Skating

You could do indoor skating, outdoor skating, or even ice skating. This activity will depend on what facilities you have in your area and what season it is. Skating is a great workout.

9. Bowling

Bowling is another fun activity that anyone can do. If you tend to throw a lot of gutter balls, ask the staff to put up the bumpers for you.

10. Golf

If you don’t want to go to an actual golf course, you could try mini golf, indoor golf, or a driving range. Golf is great for improving hand-eye coordination.
