If you didn’t know, there is an unofficial holiday ostensibly created by single people, called Singles Awareness Day or Singles Appreciation Day . Wikipedia says it’s celebrated on February 15, but some will stick to the traditional Feb. 14th date.
Wikipedia goes on to define it as “a complement to Valentine’s Day for people who are single, that is, not married or in a romantic relationship.” So, with that out of the way, what can you do to celebrate your fitness on this holiday? Well, anything you want, is the answer. You don’t have to cater your activity to another person’s wants, needs or physical capabilities. But we came up with 5 workouts for you to choose from — so you can get on with celebrating YOUR holiday.
