Start Here Introduction

Welcome to the Relationship Workout course!

We start with a fundamental question: How good of an intimate relationship do you want?

If you want your relationship to be strong versus average to weak, fun versus tolerable to drama filled miserable …

Then strengthen your relationship game.

Strengthen your relationship game by continuing to answer this fundamental question throughout your relationship life:

First you have to care about how well you show up in your relationship.

Then you need to continue to make choices that strengthen your relationship, not weaken it.

In addition, knowing what it takes to show up as the best partner possible will also give you a lens into how much the person you’re dating or in a relationship cares about you and how well he or she is showing up. Yes, indeed, it does take two to tango.

Therefore, while dating you also need to ask this fundamental question:

In fact, whom you date and ultimately choose to be with in the long term (perhaps even marry), will have a profound impact on the quality of your life.

Relationship Workout provides a five-step workout plan that includes sixteen core areas presented as questions to answer during the five steps of dating and being in an intimate relationship – with the ultimate objective to reduce the drama and improve the quality of your relationship life.

The expected results:

  • Improve the quality of your relationship (and life) by reducing the drama and time spent fighting, while increasing the desire to have more fun together
  • Gain confidence in your decision to commit for the long-term, or to leave to pursue a potentially stronger relationships for the both of you.

At a high level, the quality of your relationship will be determined by the amount of fun (positive moments) you have together versus the amount of drama (negative moments).

We’ll see that research shows a stable relationship – one good enough to stay together – will have on average five positive moments for every negative one for a 5 to 1 ratio.

Therefore, the first twelve core areas in Steps 0, 1 and 2 of Relationship Workout focus on helping you to reduce the amount of drama you contribute to your relationship, freeing up time, energy, and desire to have more fun together.

Relationship Workout then provides three core ways in Step 3 to check if you’re comfortable enough with the quality of your relationship to feel confident to decide to commit for the long-term or instead decide to leave for a potentially stronger partner.

So, if you are ready to get more relationship fit, let’s get started …
