Fitness Fiat:  Make It Fun, Let’s Move Together!

By Valerie Merriweather

Summer’s about here so it’s a great time to enjoy the weather and get active!  There are plenty of low-cost, fun ways to get your daily exercise.  One of the best ways to get a great workout with your entire family is to add more “play-time” into your day.

Play is by far the best exercise for your kids during this season.  There are practical and fun ways to make it part of your daily lifestyle and all you need is 30 to 60 minutes every day!  Take a power walk together or play tag in the park.

Whatever you do, make it your mission to bring the play back into your child’s day and keep them healthy for a life time!
