Let's be real for a minute, guys: dinner and a movie for Valentine's Day is not fun. The restaurants are going to be jam-packed, and well, you've probably seen all the good movies already. Instead, grab your special someone for one of these hot-and-sweaty adventures (you never know where it may lead after you get back home). And we won't have any qualms with you digging into that box of chocolates post-workout, either. After all, you earned it!
Ride with Your Crush at Cyc
NYC-ers, if you're already set on plans for the 14th, head to Cyc Fitness for their 7:30pm "Crush Ride" on February 13th. They'll be playing cupid for you and your crush with a themed playlist, special Valentine's treats and a sweaty kissing booth in case you two really hit it off while pumping your legs (and heart). But they can't do all the work - you'll need to purchase two bikes, and email firstname.lastname@example.org with your crush's name and address. Cyc takes it from there, shooting your hottie an invite and reserving side-by-side bikes. ($25 per class, cyfitness.com)
Reach New Heights at Brooklyn Boulders
Climb to new heights - in the gym and in your relationship - with BKB's "It Takes Two" bouldering competition. Two teammates are required to enter the February 15th competition, and you'll each work together to master routes of all levels. So gear up and see how well you two really work together ($20 per person, brooklynboulders.com). But if you're not quite ready for a competition, sign up for the "Learn the Ropes" course for a special price, and score some sweet gifts both of you can enjoy. ($99, brooklynboulders.com)
Smile While you Sweat with SoulCycle
At all Soul locations, ride on February 14th with your SOULmate for a major party-on-a-bike calorie burn, and document the memory with the SOUL kiss cam. Can't make it to class that day? For the entire month of February, bring a date to select classes - free! These classes don't come cheap, giving you reason enough to drag your partner along or muster the guts to finally ask that cutie you've been eyeing on a date. (price and schedule varies; soul-cycle.com)
