Summer is a great time for everyone when the sun is out and people are out absorbing the sunlight in. If you’re a parent, then you’d know just how hard it is to juggle between family and work. Add some kids to the equation and you’ll have yourself a huge jumble of problems to deal with. This summer, get active with your family together and start a fitness routine so the whole family can have some fun!
What could get better than Zumba classes with the family – a high energy, action packed class where everyone gets to awaken the dancer in them! Zumba classes are a fun way to get active this summer, especially if it’s an outdoor class where you get to take in the fresh air while jamming to your favorite songs. Find a local Zumba class near you that caters to both adult and children and you’ll be getting fitter by the day with your family!
If you stay in the city, this could be your one chance to get out there and experience the fresh air from the suburb trails. Get out there with your family on a weekend with a rented truck filled with mountain bikes for the family and cycle along the trails to experience both a scenic view and stay active at the same time. Make sure to pack a picnic lunch with you so your family can have a delicious and healthy meal in the countryside!
The blisteringly hot summer is the best time to take a swim with the family and enjoy the cool waters together with family. You could choose to take a dip at a local swimming complex, but we’d advise you to take this opportunity to bring your family to a freshwater lake and immerse yourself in the serene environment, away from rowdy crowds and crowded beaches.
Finally, a morning family hike is the perfect start to a summer as you get to stay fit and take in the gorgeous views of the mountain you’re climbing. A casual hike burns up to 400 calories every hour, so make sure you stay hydrated in between and look out for your kids if they are climbing along.
There are tons of activities for your family to get involved in this summer, and these are just a small list. Just remember that fitness is not everything in life and it’s alright to have some fun while exercising this summer!
