Ways to exercise as a family


Exercising is such a chore sometimes. It even sounds like work. Most of us make excuses, but you can exercise and have fun. Here are some ways to exercise with your family.
  • Biking together- Take a bike ride with your family. Want to burn more calories? Try a bike race.
  • Walking- Take daily walks with your family. Get outside and enjoy God's creation. Explore the neighborhood on foot. Want to burn more calories? Speed walk, jog, or race each other.
  • Playing at the park- You don't realize how many calories playing at the park can burn. Chase your kids, throw a ball, kick a ball, play frisbee, etc..
  • Play tag- Don't like to jog? Play tag with your family. I guarantee it's get your heart racing.
  • Kickball
  • Baseball
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Soccer
  • Rollerblading/ skating- You can race, or just skate for fun.
  • Relay race
  • Rock wall climb- You can even race to the top.
  • Swimming- Swimming is a great exercise the whole family can enjoy.
  • Exercise dvds- My kids like to do Zumba with me. 
 Remember all movement counts, no matter how fast or slow. No more excuses! Get up and move!

 What are some of the things you and your family do to exercise together?
