Get Active Together

Get Active Together

Keeping fit need not be a solo effort! Six couples share with us the healthful activities they do together.

"We try to work out together - sometimes, he'll accompany me for a run, and I'll go with him to the gym. When we're overseas, we love to hike across mountains! We recently hiked across an epic crossing in New Zealand." - Phyllis Chua, 35, salad delivery owner, and Ng Wei Lieh, 39, product designer

"We often jog together at MacRitchie Reservoir and Bedok Reservoir. Whenever we travel, we like to include outdoor activities in our itinerary. For instance, we've dived in Malaysia and hiked in Switzerland and South Africa!" - Koh Xiao Ting, 25, inventory executive, and Gary Quek, 27, engineer

"We both used to be dragon boaters but we've since retired from the sport. These days, we go swimming about once a week and jogging twice a week to keep fit. We treasure the time we spend exercising together as 'couple time' as well." - Felicia Foo, 26, accounts executive, and Kelward Ong, 30, service engineer

"We've started to make an effort to cycle together regularly along East Coast Park. We take our one-year-old daughter, Emma, along, as she has just learnt to sit up properly. We're hoping to do it once a week." - Charise Liew, 34, teacher, and Sean Tan, 37, student life manager

"We hit the gym together about six times a week, usually after work. We do cardio exercises and lift weights. We enjoy spending more time with each other. It also makes us stronger physically and mentally." - Stephanie Chua, 25, teacher, and Warren Yap, 25, civil servant in the military

"Every Sunday, we'd have dinner at Darius' place with his family. Before feasting, we'd usually go for a swim to burn off calories!" - Daphne Leong, 26, hospitality executive, and Darius Xu, 28, banker
