Exercise is a big commitment in terms of time. Unfortunately, if you take this commitment it means that you have to sacrifice time that could be spent with your family. However, if you get a little creative you can do both. In this article I will be discussing four fantastic ideas family exercise that allows you to spend time with your family and improve your skills.
Cycling is a great way to get some exercise and take your family on a mini-adventure. So if you have nothing planned at one of weekend afternoons prepare your way, get the bikes ready and fend off the circuit. You can even make it a little more interesting by cycling somewhere for lunch and then cycling back. 1 hour light cycling burns 400 calories so if you make an afternoon of it you can break the 1,000 calorie mark.
Football (or soccer if you are from the US) is a brilliant team based family practice idea. For a full list of game you need two teams of 11 people, but you can have a casual game with much lower numbers than this. Even if it’s just a wife and kids can still have fun kick about. All you need is a football, some open space such as your garden or the local park and possibly some goal posts. A relaxed kick about will burn through notable 476 calories per hour.
If you want to take the family on a day out and be active in the process, snowboarding is a brilliant choice. All you have to do is find a snowboard center is near, book the whole family and get yourself there. Snowboarding gets through reasonable 429 calories per hour so if you make a few hours these calories will really add up.
Walking is a top family practice. You do not need equipment and so long as there is a path which you can do it anywhere you want. Walking is not as great as football or snowboarding, but it’s still a better option than sitting at home and watching TV and burns reasonable 240 calories per hour.
Including family training programs is a very good idea. It allows you to have fun with them, get yourself fit and get them fit with you. The best part is it is not too difficult either. All you need is a little creativity you can come up with lots of great family practice ideas that everyone will enjoy.
