Make Fitness Fun
As children, running, jumping, and physical exertion are a fun part of everyday play. As adults, we tend to only associate these activities with exercise routines. Add some physical activity to your day with these fun activities. You might not even realize you’re getting exercise.
Have a chore-fitness challenge day. Household chores such as mowing the lawn or washing the car, can actually burn a good amount of calories. Plan a day for the whole family to do chores and offer rewards for completed tasks.
Explore a park or hiking trail. Map out all the local parks and trails and make it a challenge to visit them all over time.
Dance. Dancing is a great way to get your heart rate up. You can have so much fun doing it that it doesn’t feel like exercise. Find a local dance program or put some music on in the living room and have a dance party.
Challenges. Download some fitness apps on your smartphone and compete with friends and family.
Plan an active vacation. Stay at hotels with swimming pools or go camping and hiking. If you visit a city, try exploring on foot.
Having fun with fitness can encourage you and your family to lead more active lifestyles. Want to add more fun to physical fitness? Try incorporating music into your workout by creating your exercise playlist on the back.
