Exercising together makes your whole family stronger! There are many quick and easy exercises everyone can do to stay fit together. This Monday, we’ll give you a few to start so you can continue throughout your week. It’s time to get moving with your whole crew!
Not only is your exercise regimen good for you, but it may also be good for your family members. Research has found that if one person in the family starts exercising, others are more likely to join in.
To ignite your Monday and accommodate all fitness levels, we’ve come up with four mini-exercise ideas for the whole family to enjoy.
Yoga Anywhere, Anytime – Try a short sequence together. Yoga builds flexibility, mobility, strength, and addresses many muscle groups. Use core yoga postures like downward dog, tree, and child’s pose. Yoga will surely bring some smiles. Do yoga in bed, in a chair, or on a yoga mat!
Charity Walk – Is there a cause that stands out for your family? Pick a charity and train for an upcoming run/walk event. This is a great opportunity to cheer each other on, build togetherness, and do good!
Family Repetitions – Strength training is a key component of overall fitness. To accommodate all fitness levels, use soup cans or weights to get strong together. Grab the weights to work your arms, legs, and back. In the living room or backyard, have your crew do repetitions of bicep curls, lunges, and finish off with some squats. Bring it all together with a smile!
Your best fitness partners are sitting across from you every day at the dinner table! Move It Monday encourages families all over the world to kick off the week with exercise. We’d love to hear from you! Share your ideas with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
