Specialty sporting goods retailer has everything needed to get out and move this Valentine's Day

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Valentine's Day is upon us and everyone is looking for a way to get closer to that special someone.  A recent survey conducted by premier specialty sporting goods retailer Sport Chalet found that 95 percent of consumers are more likely to try a new fitness activity if they have a partner to do it with. To help motivate couples to try something new, this Valentine's Day Sport Chalet is encouraging consumers to explore an activity that either builds camaraderie or promotes healthy competition.

"Working out with a partner offers several benefits," says Sport Chalet Expert Hallie Moyer "It makes both individuals more likely to stick to a routine when they know there is someone else counting on them. A partner can also offer an outside perspective on your progress and boost self-esteem and motivation."

Moyer provides the following active date ideas and products to help couples at any stage in their relationship plan the perfect outing for two:

  • Play for keeps-Heat up the tennis court together! Whether couples team up for doubles or challenge one another in singles, the Wilson Six.One 95 Tennis Racquet will give them the control and power to hit winners from anywhere on the court.
  • Test the waters-Enjoy Valentine's Day with a splash of romance and maybe a splash of water while paddle boarding! Couples can strengthen their relationship while strengthening their core on a SUPCO Classic 11'2" Stand Up Paddle Board. The board is stable yet playful, and is suited for all ability levels.
  • Dive into it-Couples can break out their bathing suits at a Sport Chalet Dive Center and sign up for SCUBA Diving lessons. The PADI certified program introduces divers to the exhilaration of breathing underwater, while putting them on their way to an internationally recognized certification. Who knows? It might be the first step on the road to a romantic tropical getaway for two.
  • Stay afloat-Couples can test if their passion for paddling equals their passion for each other with the Ocean Kayak Malibu Two 12' Kayak. This versatile kayak makes it easy to explore uncharted territory together with front and rear toggle handles and a lightweight, compact design that allows couples to transport it wherever adventure leads!
  • Run off into the sunset-Enjoy being outside and in each other's company. For an extra-romantic run, try a scenic route at sunset! No matter how brightly their love burns, couples should make sure they don't forget to wear reflective clothing for safety after the sun goes down. The Nathan Reflex Reflective Arm/Ankle Band or the Nathan Reflective Belt are both easy ways to increase visibility.
