Window shopping is a fun thing to do if you live in a city with an active downtown. Back in the day, people used to love to go window shopping to see what all the stores were selling. There are several great things about window shopping, and one of them is that it gets you plenty of exercise. Make sure you've got your smart watch or pedometer on so you get credit for all the walking you'll do. Where there are stores, there are always places to eat. Turn your window shopping date into something even more incredible by taking a break and getting a bite to eat. Put aside a little money in case you see something while window shopping that catches your eye.

You can easily find an acroyoga class by searching Google. Just type in acroyoga + your city to find classes in your area.

After a couple of acroyoga dates you'll begin to feel the difference, and your dates will end up being a regular routine to stay fit.

Food courts at shopping malls can make for an awesome dinner date because both of you can choose what food you want. A dinner date can be a functional event where the two of you enjoy a meal after a hard day of work, or it can be a reason to celebrate. The important thing is that you're setting aside time that both of you can get together and enjoy the other's company.

A fitness challenge is a great date idea that can eventually lead to so much more. You start with one date focused on fitness, and then it snowballs into a life of its own.

A watch party is a great double date idea for married couples who want to go out on a date with others, but don't want to or can't leave. A watch party is where you watch TV, streaming or other videos with friends, either together or virtually.
