Family Fitness Exercises

Walk the dog. Treat your dog to daily walks that include the entire family. Check out physical participation video games. Nintendo Wii games for example, enables the family to play tennis, bowling, baseball, skateboarding, and snowboarding, . I’m generally trying to get kids away from the TV, but in this case, if they are swinging a bat or dancing, it’s great. Bone up. Be sure to include bone-strengthening exercise as well, such as hopscotch, jumping rope, gymnastics, or volleyball, any “weight-bearing” activity, one that you do standing up. Go to the park. Make going to the park a reward for a job well done, a good test grade, or anything that deserves a positive reward. When you get there, play a fast game of Frisbee or toss a football. Birthdays presents. Plan a day trip or visit a nearby zoo. A bike makes a great gift for every family member, as does a basketball hoop in the driveway and cricket pitch in the back yard. Walk to school. Lace up your walking shoes and join the kids for a brisk walk to and from school each day. Get to the playground. Take the kids to the playground to swing on the bars, climb a tree, or play tug-of-war. Learn a new activity. Take a class together, such as martial arts, dance, or yoga. Go with the flow. If your child shows interest in some activity, such as dancing, encourage it and go with her to participate. Plant a garden. Whether you choose fruit and vegetables or just some pretty flowers.. They’ll get some brisk exercise digging, planting, and weeding. Then the whole family can enjoy the fruits of their labour with fresh produce and cut flowers. If any of your family experience pain when exercising please contact your Chiropractor. When an adult or child has been living a more sedentary lifestyle the muscles, tendons and other soft tissues are not conditioned to sudden bouts of exercise and can be easily torn or damaged. Having a health check can make sure there are no underlying issues that could be preventing a child from exercising. Please call your Chiropractor at Impulse Chiropractic on (02) 9939 8817 or visit our clinic at 15/64 Pitt Road in North Curl Curl for more information.]]>
