Get Active with your Kids!
Parents play a key role in helping our children become more physically active. You know the saying “monkey see, monkey do”? Let’s lead by example with these tips:
- Plan ahead! Make sure you set a time that works with your schedule. Pencil it into your family calendar. I am a big believer that what gets scheduled gets done.
- Have active toys. Have balls, jump ropes, squatters and other active toys available.
- Play with your children. Have fun together going for a walk, bike riding or kicking around a soccer ball.
- Make it fun! Get excited about physical activity, and help your child find a sport or activity they enjoy. The more they enjoy it, the more likely they’ll continue it.
Need a quick, fun 15-minute workout that can be done inside or outside? If you have a timer, you can set it for 20-30 seconds per activity with 15 seconds of rest in between. If not, just do 12-15 reps per exercise. Repeat 3X. Make sure you do it together as a family!
