Once I got engaged, I ramped up my exercise routine — and to my delight — my fiancé joined me! We started off with boxing classes, running along the river, and he even came to a few pilates classes. By far our favorite pre-wedding workout was SoulCycle, so I am very excited that for the first time ever, couples can add SoulCycle classes (and the iconic bright yellow bike!) to their wedding registries exclusively on Zola! It makes perfect sense that brides and grooms would want to add these workout dates to their wedding registries.
Turns out, my husband and I are not the only ones who like to sweat it out pre-wedding day. According to a recent survey of Zola couples, 70% pump it up extra hard at the gym leading up to the big day, and 60% work out with their S.O. at the gym at least 1-2x per month, many reportedly working out together on a weekly basis.
Why are couples so obsessed with fitness? Zola launched three years ago with the dream to let couples register for anything. In addition to registry mainstays that will never go out of style, like a KitchenAid Stand Mixer and Le Creuset Dutch Oven, today’s millennial couples want to register for experiences they can share together and fit their lifestyle. Overall, couples are taking health and wellness more seriously, so it makes sense that registering for that category is on the rise as well.
Outdoor, adventure and active experiences are all growing very rapidly as well. If indoor cycling is not your thing, you can always register for bikes, camping equipment, or a rock climbing excursion to get your heart pumping. Exercise related gifts are the perfect balance to all those food and drink related presents.
Now that we are married, my husband and I have continued exercising together and it is a great way to bond and relieve stress after a long week. Going to SoulCycle together is a wonderful way to keep the wedding energy going year long, since it is a gift that keeps on giving.
To tap it back with us you can register for SoulCycle 20- and 30- class packs here.
