Summer Holidays = Kids vs Workout

Involving children in your workouts during summer vacation can be a fun and healthy way to spend quality time together.

Here are five ways to include children in your workout routine:

  • Outdoor Adventures: Take advantage of the warm weather and explore outdoor activities with your children. Go for family bike rides, hikes, or nature walks. These activities provide cardiovascular exercise and allow you to enjoy the beauty of nature together.

  • Play Active Games: Engage in active games that get everyone moving and laughing. Set up a backyard obstacle course, have a game of tag or hide-and-seek, or play a friendly game of soccer or basketball. It's a fantastic way to burn calories, improve coordination, and have a blast as a family.

  • Family Dance Parties: Turn up the music and have spontaneous dance parties at home. Dancing is a great cardiovascular exercise and a fun way to get everyone grooving. Encourage your children to showcase their moves and create a joyful atmosphere while getting some exercise.

  • Circuit Training Challenges: Design circuit training sessions that incorporate exercises suitable for both adults and children. Set up stations with activities like jumping jacks, squats, lunges, push-ups, or even fun activities like jumping rope or hula-hooping. Challenge each other to complete the circuit and offer praise and encouragement along the way.

  • Home Workout Videos: Choose age-appropriate workout videos that you can follow along as a family. Look for fitness routines specifically designed for children or workouts that incorporate simple exercises suitable for all ages. It's a great way to introduce structured exercise and have a guided workout session together.

Remember, the key is to make it enjoyable and age-appropriate. Emphasise the importance of staying active and having fun while being physically active. By including children in your workouts, you're not only promoting a healthy lifestyle but also creating lasting memories and positive associations with exercise.
