Let’s Get Involved This National Family Health and Fitness Day USA

Let’s get the whole family up and moving!

Today is Family Health & Fitness Day USA, a national event that looks to promote family involvement in physical activity. While many organizations throughout the nation will hold events in honor of this day, there are things that we can do on our own to get our families and loved ones participating in fitness activities. Here are some of the activities that we can try.

  • Let each member choose an activity for the entire family to join No matter how silly or embarrassing the activity might be, let’s promise ourselves that we will give it a try.
  • For those of us with smaller families, activities like a group bike ride, a family hike, or even a dance party are great ways to get up and to move.
  • We can also organize larger family games such as a game of flag football, soccer, baseball, capture the flag, frisbee, ping pong, and
  • For those of us with access to a pool, water games are a great way to get active. For instance, a game of Marco Polo, races, and even a diving contest are all good physical activities. Just make sure that young or inexperienced swimmers are safe to play in the water.
  • On this day, we can also organize a larger neighborhood or community activities. For instance, gathering multiple families to participate in a huge game of tag, tug of war, a water balloon battle, or a series of competitions is a great way to encourage those around us to get active as well.
  • A side benefit is the bonding that group events create from exercising and competing with those that we care about.

These are some of the suggestions that we should try to celebrate Family Health & Fitness Day USA.  We at The Maria Sanchez Show hope you will join us as we get up and moving.  Don’t forget to check out our latest program, Shadow Politics with Senator Michael D. Brown.  Tune in on Sundays at 4:00 p.m. PDT/7:00 p.m. EDT.
