If you’ve noticed that the kids have become TV watching zombies, your spouse is permanently connected to a smartphone and even the dog has gotten too lazy to chase rabbits, it’s time to get fit as a family!
September 29 is Family Fitness Day! There’s never been a better time to start sharing the benefits of exercising with your loved ones.
Benefits of Family Exercise
The calorie-burning, cardiovascular improvements, and the increased strength are well known physical benefits, but exercise can also improve your psychological health. The whole family will benefit when you:
● reduce stress
● increase personal happiness
● channel anger
● gain confidence
● improve memory
Build Family Bonds
What better way to connect with one another than to exercise as a family? Spending more time around your loved ones will help you strengthen your bonds. Sharing a common fitness goal can help you keep each other motivated too.
Try Something New
A family can do practically any workout together. Try something new every week. Take turns letting each family member choose a new activity. You might even start a new family tradition such as an annual 5K run, flag football game or hike. Here are some simple go-to ideas for family outings:
● Bring furry family members. Take the pets for a walk.
● Make it a race! Walk, hike or bike your way to a fitter family.
● Dig in! Work together in the garden to burn calories while you beautify your home.
Make sure to get out with your loved ones on Family Fitness Day — and every day — to get fit and spend some quality time together!
