Watch Football, Get a workout, and help your marriage!
Fall brings football Sundays—and wipes out all the couple time you had during the summer. Add the ever-increasing popularity of fantasy football leagues (my husband is in three), and setting up rosters takes up the morning, while the games go all afternoon and night. But don’t fret, there is a way to get your man to pay attention to you (or guys — to keep your wife happy): Work out together!
I’m a former Syracuse University football cheerleader, and I bring that experience to teach personal training clients and group fitness classes in Manhattan, complete with football music playlists and individual drills. But for this couples workout, I enlisted the help of Jay Dantzler, a professional American League cornerback for the New York Sharks women’s league and instructor at Harbor Fitness in Brooklyn, New York. She teaches the Grid Iron classes at the four “Brooklyn Tough” fitness centers. Perform each exercise once, then repeat the entire circuit two more times for a full-body cardio and sculpting workout.
Watch the segment I did with Jay on Fox & Friends, put on my playlists from NikkiFitness.com and burn of the calories together before your game-time snacks!
