New Year New You: Fun Family Fitness

Written by Amy Hughes

So you’ve eaten all the Christmas Pud,
Way too much for your own good!
Let’s head outside and get some fresh air,
Here’s some active fun the whole family can share!

1. Jump for joy at Oxygen Freejumping

Swing, zip, balance and jump your way through the trees on the Tree Top Adventure courses at GoApe! Younger adventurers will love Tree Top Junior, a lower and easier version. Explore the rugged trails along the forest floor with the awesome Segway experiences, or if you love to Zipwire then the Zip Trekking will definitely be on your bucket list! TAKE A LOOK.

3. Make Household Chores Fun

Whilst it’s easy for the kids to dismiss chores as boring, why not try and turn them into a fun game to get them moving? Challenge them to see how many toys they can put away in a minute… A bit of competition might be all it takes to get them running around the house!

2. Sneak in More Steps

This is a super easy way to make sure you’re moving as much as possible. There are lots of ways to sneak in some more steps, from parking the car a few roads away, taking the stairs instead of the lift and more!

3. Go on a Weekend Walk

Get outside this weekend as a family. See if you can get little ones naming what wildlife and flowers they can spot on their travels! It doesn’t have to be far, as there’s sure to be something interesting at every corner. Our Wintery Walks blog may inspire you! TAKE A LOOK.

4. Music Motivation

If you’re looking for a way to get your little ones active and ready for school in record time, why not throw on an upbeat playlist that they love and see if they can get ready before the songs are over. Shameless dancing around the kitchen is optional.

5. Gardening with Kids

Prepping the garden for spring and summer is the perfect (yet deceiving) way to get your little ones eager to move. Get them weeding, plant-potting and watering flowers to give them some TV-free time.

6. Weekly Sports Night

This one is great for getting the family together and being active. Whether it’s football in the park, bike riding or going for a swim, there are lots of options available to keep things interesting each week!
