Here are six special Valentine’s workouts.

Speed (and Agility) Dating Circuit Workout

If you are looking for a date you might as well work out while doing it. Every Thursday throughout February, New York Sports Club will host the Speed (and Agility) Dating Circuit Workout where you get to flirt while you’re breaking a sweat. Thompson Plyler will run the workout — he’s both a trainer AND a relationship expert, so you are in good hands.

Where and when: NYSC at 30 Wall St. Starts Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. and will run every Thursday through February.

Price: Free for both members and non-members.

Partner Yoga and Acrobatics Playshop

At this yoga workshop, it’s all about your lifting and balancing techniques. As if that’s not hard enough, you’ll also learn about communicating about your desires. Sounds fun and nearly impossible, right?

Where and when: Body and Pole, 115 W. 27th St., Feb. 15, 5-8 p.m.

Price: $65

Yoga Download

How does yoga as foreplay sound? If you are into that kind of thing (it’s OK, we don’t judge) you can download a yoga class for partners on Yogadownload.com. Your partner becomes your prop in the comforts of your own living room. One of the perfect classes for couples is Amy Baglan’s 60-minute Partner Yoga.

Where and when: Anywhere and anytime

Price: $2.99 to stream and $7.99 to download.

Cupid’s Undie Run

Exercise, have fun and raise awareness of children’s health by participating in the Cupid’s Undie Run. It’s not bad doing something crazy when it’s for the sake of raising money for The Children’s Tumor Foundation. You might even meet a cutie running in his/her undies; that way you kill two birds with one stone. And remember: it is not a race, just a fun run.

Where and when: Stage 48, 605 W. 48th St., Feb. 15, noon

Price: $60

Valentine’s Day Salsa Class

Hips don’t lie and the Ailey Extension — the teaching wing of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater — knows it: They’re hosting a salsa class on Valentine’s evening, no partner or previous knowledge required.

Where and when: 405 W. 55th St., Feb. 14, 7-9 p.m.

Price: $25, $45 for couples

Trooper Fitness Sweatmate Bootcamp

Why sweat alone? Grab your spouse, partner or date and hit the gym. Calories will definitely be burned and tears may possibly be shed at the Sweatmate Bootcamp on Valentine’s Day. Remember, the more calories you burn at this high-intensity class, the more you can eat at your Valentine’s dinner afterwards.

Where and when: Titan Fitness Studios,164 W. 25th St.. Feb. 14, 6 p.m.

Price: $20

Danny Zapata’s Broken Hearts Club at Flywheel
