Before hitting the chocolate and Champagne this Valentine's Day, grab your sweetheart and bring the romance to one of these date night workouts. You know what they say, the couple that sweats together….


AcroYoga


Get bendy with bae! UC Berkeley alum Max Kopeikin launched AcroYoga classes last February at Yoga Garden, combining the wisdom and alignment of yoga with the strength-building playfulness of acrobatics. While partner yoga is a large portion of the class, classes also feature poses in trios and groups, and participants are welcome to attend solo, with a partner, or with a group of friends. Individual classes start at $19 with discount packages available. If you and boo are expecting, Yoga Garden is also offering prenatal partner yoga and yoga for fertility workshops this month. // 286 Divisadero St (Lower Haight), yogagardensf.com


Rock Climbing

Test your relationship with the ultimate trust fall while indoor rock climbing at Mission Cliffs. Rock climbing not only requires the buddy-system, but relies on communication, trust, and encouragement throughout the process. After such a physically and mentally challenging sport, it's always fun to celebrate with a partner at the end. Mission Cliffs offers private lessons, intro to climbing, and a variety of advanced technique classes. Day passes begin at $15. // 2295 Harrison St (Mission), touchstoneclimbing.com/mission-cliffs


So You Think You Can Dance

Heat things up with a sexy dance class at the Oberlin Dance Collective, more commonly known by regulars as “ODC." Learn Havana-style casino moves in salsa reuda or the fundamentals of Brazilian style dance in samba. Or perhaps you two are a better fit for a straight up hip hop class! In addition to the romantic (and likely entertaining) hour, you'll be the ultimate wedding guests this season with your new sultry moves! With over 100 classes taught weekly, ODC offers a variety of dance styles and skill levels. Discount packages for new students begin at $48. // 351 Shotwell St (Mission), odcdance.org



Beginner Boxing

Work out any relationship kinks in the ring at a beginner boxing class at HIT FIT SF. The sweaty workout kicks off with jumping rope—immediately getting your heart rate up— and includes throwing and catching jabs, crosses and hooks with your partner. Every one-hour class concludes with an abs circuit and cool down leaving you ready for a well-deserved drink around the corner. Drop in classes are $30 with discount packages available. // 2345 Harrison St (Mission) or 1150 Sutter (Nob Hill), hitfitsf.com
