It’s been interesting watching our Happy Couple Workout video go viral. We got over 10,000 views in just a few days. It all began with some bad publicity- we were called ‘The Most Annoying Workout Couple Ever’ but then after some syndication actually got some real and authentic support.
Gay.net for example:
Okay, so the moves seem a little sappy, but they look like decent team exercises—certainly much better than the usual couples’ workout where pairs to do side-by-side pushups and sit-ups. Plus, the philosophy behind The Happy Couple Workout has its heart in the right place:
We also got some really decent Swedish blogging going on. At first we were disheartened to realize that we were being made fun of, but then moved into feelings of affirmation quickly after some support came through. What you want is a reaction. If people are surprised by it, if they’re effected, if they have some kind of guttural reaction- that’s a good thing! We know our video is cheesy. But we really believe in what we’re doing. There are more ways to be physical with your romantic partner other than just sex. And honestly sometimes you need to be touched, but not sexually.
For men and women that exercise at different levels and like to work out different parts of their bodies, we’ve got something really special. And we know it.
