When you’re a parent, you’ll know just how difficult it can be to juggle fun with function. Because you want the best for your children, but you don’t always know exactly what that should look like. On the one hand, you want to keep them happy; and sometimes you know that the way to achieving that isn’t always the healthiest route. But at the same time, you want to be a good parent and bring them up with good values and with healthy bodies. It can be a tough balance to find. But, you don’t have to choose when it comes to keeping them fit. Because you can actually have fun while you’re doing it!
Go On A Bike Ride
Kids love their bikes. You probably get tired of having to pick them up off from the driveway and move them from the middle of the garden. But keep in mind that them being on their bikes is keeping them fit. So, why not consider going on regular bike rides as a family? If you want to get a little fitter, and include your husband in that too, this could be a great way to make sure it happens. If that goes down well, you could also consider going on a hike in your local woodland or up into the hills; both of which are great for keeping you fit.
Enjoy A Day Out
Even though bike rides and hikes are a lot of fun, they’re also two activities that you generally know are great for you. But you don’t always have to know that you’re doing something to keep yourself fit and active. Sometimes, some of the best fun family activities keep you fit too. And the best part, you don’t even realize that you’re exercising! So, think about booking a day out for all the family and see how fit you feel after.
Up next, you’ve got another idea that will help you to enjoy exercise a little more, and that’s starting to play sports. But because you want to do this as a family, you should think about trying something like tennis or badminton. Both sports can be a lot of fun to play as a family, and will definitely help to keep you all fit.
Train For A Challenge
Then, you could also consider training for a family fitness challenge. If you’re all quite competitive, this could be a great way to keep you motivated. Whether it’s something like a silly sports day, or a bit more serious like a half marathon, setting your entire family a challenge can be a great way to focus on your fitness levels, and all have fun together.
Try A Fitness Break
Finally, you could also think about going on a fitness related holiday together. If you tend to go on the same kinds of breaks year on year, then you may want to consider making a change that’s more in line with your new fitness mind. A bootcamp or even an activity holiday can be exactly what you need to have fun and still stay fit.
