Valentine’s Day is around the corner and if you’ve been a celebrant of the romantic holiday long enough, you either love it or hate it. While some loved-up pairs may say that everyday is Valentine’s Day, we know it’s still a special day deserving of some magic. So grab your partner and hear us out!
Here at The Fit Loco, we want you to think beyond the flowers and chocolates and keep to your fitness goals while still being romantic.
Here are 8 active Valentine’s Day activities you can do with your significant other.
1.Outdoor hike at Hortpark & the Southern Ridges
Be one with nature and spend the day with a scenic hike up Hortpark. The route is easy for beginners, and is ground to many photographic spots for you to still make adorable memories of the day. All you need is a pair of outdoor shoes, a bottle of water and your favorite person.
We recommend the adventurous Route A that’ll bring you from the stunning nature via the Forest Walk to the sight of Singapore’s heritage buildings like the Alkaff Mansion.

Singapore’s first infrared sauna studio is dedicated to providing detoxification benefits, and you’ll feel relaxed from your first step in. Pure Wellness Studio is a quiet, peaceful studio. With hardly a peep of disturbance sans the alluring meditation music that fills the walls of the Duxton Road shophouse.

3. Defy gravity at Climb Central
If either you or your partner have a fear of heights, rock climbing might just be the answer to dissolve any phobias. At Climb Central, you’re given a thorough introduction and briefing before you scale the walls, and when left to your own devices, you’re free to choose easy routes to start.

4. Fly in the air with acroyoga
You may have witnessed couples out in the plains of Marina Bay or the Fullerton; – one is usually sprawled on their backs and another soaring in the air. Acroyoga, a type of yoga that tests the strength, skill and trust between two bodies, is a must-try activity this Valentine’s Day.
Take the risk and join a class where you can experience holding a yoga pose in the air, with your significant other holding the fort as your support.
The fun is in having a good laugh while trying to hold your balance!

Combine sun and sea this Valentine’s Day with a day out on the water. Sign up for a one-day dragon boating course with Dragon Boat Innovate – they have a dedicated 2.5 hour session to work your full body while teaching you the basics of the professional dragon boating experience.
You’ll make new friends with the community of new and seasoned boaters, and we promise you’ll be addicted after your first race.
