Family Fitness

You can encourage your family to become fit by following these tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

  • Limit how much time your children spend watching TV and playing video games. Limit how much time you spend doing these activities, as well.

  • Don't eat snacks or meals while watching TV. If possible, do some type of exercise while watching.

  • Schedule family fitness activities such as biking, hiking or tennis.

  • Set exercise goals as a family to help everyone stick to the fitness plan.

  • When the weather is bad, try indoor exercise ideas such as jumping jacks or Simon Says.

  • Encourage your children to try individual sports such as tennis or swimming that can be done throughout life.
