5 Fun Ways for the Family to Exercise and Stay Healthy
Have Fun and Get Fit!
New year is a great time for setting goals with most of us looking for ways to work off all that amazing food we ate over the festive break. But sticking to goals can be hard, so achieving them needs to be enjoyable and what could be more fun than involving all of the family.
So, we’ve put together a list of five fun ways to keep fit and healthy together whilst having fun and making memories!
- Cycling – Get on your bike for endless outdoor exploring. Check out the parks, canal paths or your local bike trails or routes. You can even take a picnic with you and schedule a stop half way. Cycling is a good cardio workout for all ages.
- Swimming – An activity that all ages can enjoy and is especially good for older family members as it avoids putting stress on joints. Its easy to learn and fun.
- Walking – Take a stroll or a hike and enjoy the outdoors together. Remember to take everyone’s physical abilities into consideration you don’t need to set off up a hill, a lovely walk in the park is good too.
- Dancing – Get everyone together in the same room and show off your moves or if you are a competitive family then organise a dance off. It’s fun and helps with balance and co-ordination.
- Inflatable Fun – A weekly 60-minute bounce session on our inflatable arenas is lots of fun and provides a great all round aerobic workout that strengthens muscles and bones too. In fact, they say that regular bouncing can make you feel younger and build stronger stamina, as it helps to slow down the ageing process. As well as all that exercise, bouncing and jumping around a massive inflatable arena is just so much fun for all the family…. You won’t even think of it as a workout!
Exercise is good
The NHS recommends that children and young people (ages 5 to 18) do 2 types of weekly physical activity; aerobic and exercise that strengthens their muscles and bones, aiming for an average of at least 60 minutes of moderate or vigorous physical activity each day.
Adults (ages 19 to 64) need to be doing strengthening exercises at least twice a week, with regular daily exercise recommended to reduce the risk of heart disease or stroke aiming for 75 minutes of vigorous intensive activity a week.
