6 celebrity power couples who love to work out together

By CAMILLE SANTIAGO Published Jul 22, 2021 8:07 pm

You know what they say, the couple that trains together, stays together.

When your better half is just as into health and fitness as you are, workouts become more fun. You get to do couple challenges, check on each other's form, and have somebody to drag your lazy ass out of bed—just ask these celebrity power couples who make duo workouts sexy.

Below, we've listed down some fit couples who like doing workouts together.

Camille Prats and VJ Yambao

Camille Prats recently shared how her husband VJ Yambao turned out to be the perfect workout buddy. "Since the pandemic happened, one of the things we enjoyed and still enjoy doing together so that we could be productive while being locked up at home is working out (na hindi rin namin inakalang magugustuhan namin)," Prats wrote in a lengthy post.

She shared how they "challenge" and "motivate" one another and help each other reach their fitness goals. Prats also revealed that through this process, they were also able to improve their relationship as a married couple.

"Finding something to do together has helped us communicate better, pag madalas na kayong magkasama, you run out of things to talk about, everything becomes a routine," Prats shared.

Her advice is to "find something you can share with your partner that you are both passionate about."

"It helps to keep conversations flowing, you start by talking about common interests and then eventually talk about each other and how you can improve as partners. Ito yung part na hindi madaling pag usapan since we found our common ground, it led to opening more doors of topics that go beyond working out into relationship talks na minsan ang hirap i-open up sa isa't-isa," the actress and host added. "Then you'll realize you have everything you need in your partner, husband/workout buddy/ best friend."

Aubrey Miles and Troy Montero

Aubrey Miles and Troy Montero are known to be a super fit power couple. Their tip? Plan workout dates with your partner or family. "Staying fit and healthy is great for the entire family. Let’s get the kids involved as much as we can. It really doesn’t take much, no real equipment needed, just your imagination, maximum effort and most importantly don’t forget to smile and have fun," Montero wrotein a post.

Rob Mananquil and Maxene Magalona

Maxene Magalona and husband Rob Mananquil spent most of their time in lockdown last year in Bali, Indonesia, and even went on a 10-day Silent Retreat Vipassana together. For Magalona, yoga has helped her see the world in a new perspective. “Every time I practice, I always have an overwhelming feeling of gratitude afterwards. My heart gets filled with so much joy and luminosity that I just can’t help but thank God for breathing life into me," Magalona wrote. "Nature has become so magical. Animals are our friends. Human beings are all the same. I am one with the universe," she added.

Derek Ramsay and Ellen Adarna

Jump rope queen Ellen Adarna has taught her equally fit beau Derek Ramsay a few of her tricks. Now, they're trying to maintain their figure by doing workouts together (while sneaking a few kisses here and there)! Adarna revealed she doesn't count her jumps because she loses focus. Instead, she does five to eight rounds of 3-minute jump ropes, with a minute of rest.

Kim Fajardo and Carmela Tunay

There's no better way for Carmela Tunay and girlfriend Kim Fajardo to spend quality time together than working out together. The volleyball stars make it a point to "squeeze in workouts" in-between their busy schedules.

"These days, i've been focusing on myself more---new path but the same active lifestyle. Life after volleyball retirement, I've leaned towards marketing, streaming, hosting BUT of course still squeeze in my workouts," Tunay captioned in a post.
