Look for ways to stay active with your kids. Kids enjoy moving outdoors. Gear up and go to the nearest park to your place. Plan outdoor activities for kids such as football, basket or baseball as children love team sports. You can also go for swimming and enjoy the sun, sand and beach? These activities certainly contribute to keep you and your kids fit and healthy.
7. Dance Around
Get into the groove by dancing for few minutes, an easiest way to burn calories and stay fit. Turn music on while you do the household chores. For an added kick, go for some rocking or hip hop music that’ll get your heart racing. Dance around with kids, show off your moves, burn calories on each step and stay in shape.
8. Turn Chores Fun
Make chores fun and get into home improvement activities while engaging kids along. Do some cleaning and vacuuming and do your body good. Vacuuming will not only help you clean the house but you’ll also burn calories with the push and pull of the machine.
9. Walk the Dog
Don’t you have a pooch? Look for one now. According to a survey, pup-owners are said to have more fun losing weight and staying fit than non-pup-owners. To make walking more exciting, don’t leave your pet behind, take it too with you. Walk the dog as a family and spend some time playing games with it and the kids. This ensures that the whole family gets a workout.
10. Team Sports
Family gathering is a great idea to play a team sport. How about designating one evening in a week as a family fitness night? Let a family member come up with a fitness activity that you will all do together each week. Whether it is swimming, walking, skating, or a basketball game, everyone will get an opportunity to do something they enjoy, and your workout will never become dull and boring.
I always wonder how great it would be to involve my family in my pursuit to work-out regularly. Working out together will be great fun, isn’t it? Moreover, this will not only result in staying fit but will also develop strong bond among us. So get an idea now!
