Fun Family Fitness Tip

- Posted in Health & Wellness Tips

Have you thought about how great it would be to include your family in your pursuit to exercise more regularly? Family exercise will improve the health of your loved ones, make exercise more fun, and at the same time develop stronger connections between all of you. With a little creativity, you can find a way to make it work for everyone.

Host your own family picnic fun day. Who needs to wait for the annual company picnic to enjoy some healthy grilling and outdoor fun? Start your own fit family day with your household members, extended family and relatives, or even your neighbors and friends. Plan some family-friendly games and activities that will get everyone involved. Don’t forget to serve healthy foods and plenty of ice cold water. Here are some fit family ideas to get you started:

  • A mini basketball, softball, t-ball or sand volleyball tournament
  • Wheelbarrow, relay, and 3-legged races
  • Softball or Frisbee throwing competitions (for distance)
  • Mid-distance races
  • Swimming races and diving contests
  • Capture the flag or hide-and-go-seek
