Fort Pierce, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Working out with the family is great for bonding, not to mention the stress relief and other health benefits it offers. Keep your family healthy, sane, and well connected as the transition back to school occurs by incorporating some group fitness activities. Anytime Fitness of Fort Pierce encourages families to stay active together this fall.
If members of the family are already participants in team sports, ask them to teach the rest of the family the basics. The family could then choose a different team sport activity every weekend, making that particular member the team leader. Encourage everyone and open up an interest in each other’s lives.
Friendly Family Competition
There is nothing wrong with creating a spirit of competition within a family. Just try to balance it out by having everyone compete on different skill levels. Introduce the competition by awarding the winner with a possible prize. The competition can be anything, like logging personal activities online and seeing who has done the greatest amount of exercise per month, or just a ‘shooting hoops’ challenge on a Sunday afternoon.
An Active Routine
The best way to manage an active household is to create exercise as part of the family routine. If kids get used to strolling along the beach or going for a morning run, this could become something that feels normal throughout their adult lives, thereby establishing a healthy lifestyle.
Teach kids to get in touch with nature by using bicycles as a form of sightseeing. If a family still has little ones, child seats or trailers can attach to the back of bikes and they can ride some relatively easy family routes.
If it’s difficult getting family members away from the consoles or computers, try to trick them into becoming active. This could easily be done by suggesting a family outing to the local Zoo, or even a picnic at a botanical garden. Before they know it, kids will be chasing each other around, or running to the next check point, breaking a sweat without even realizing it.
Regardless of what families do, be sure everyone keeps moving this summer, and doing so as a team can only bring everyone that much closer together.
