Work In a Workout -- Picnic Edition
Fitness Expert Beth Oliver can work in a workout anywhere -- even picnics and barbeques! She stopped by our studio today to show us how fun it can be. And it's good for the family in more ways than one!
Are you looking for ways to keep your picnics and barbeques active and fun for your family, and sneak in a little exercise too? Here are some great games and activities that you may have forgotten about, but will be tons of fun. You can play them in your yard or any park, and some of them in a large family room if it happens to rain:
Outside of the physical activity itself, these games have a very real benefit for kids under 10. Research tells us that when kids under 10 associate movement with fun, they are much more likely to become lifetime exercisers. This is the only way to really break the cycle of obesity that we are experiencing in our culture today.
And you can sneak in some exercise yourself!
