Cool air. Crisp breeze. Leaves crunching beneath your feet. Oh, the sights, smells and temps of fall! It’s a great time for family fitness fun, so here are some suggestions to get out and enjoy the fall together.
Flag football is just the ticket to some fall family fitness fun. You don’t have to just sit and watch football games on T.V. Get out there and create your own game! It’s a fantastic bonding time, and it’s so much fun that you won’t even realize how many calories you’re burning in the process.
Hiking is another enjoyable family fitness activity. Almost everyone can join in and enjoy hiking because it isn’t as taxing as football or some other activities may be. You can go as fast or as slow as you want and enjoy the wonder of nature along the way. However, if you’re looking for a more intense hiking experience, there are hiking trails that suit your fitness levels and needs.
Then there’s a family bicycle outing! With the cooler weather, you’re not going to risk overheating like you might in the summer heat. Bicycling is not only great exercise, but it’s also a perfect way to view the colorful leaves and other sights of fall.
Hey, you golfers! Don’t forget about the countless hours of family fun you can have during a golf outing. From putt-putt golfing to being on a bona fide golf course, the options are many. If you have younger children, then this may provide an opportunity not only for family bonding, but also to teach them a skill/sport that they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.
Tennis is another option for a family activity. It, too, can give you hours of fun and presents an opportunity for your kids to learn a new skill/sport.
It’s beautiful out there, so go have some family fitness fun!
