Exercising is a great family bonding activity that teaches children the value of fitness and an active lifestyle. King Athletic reveals three fun family fitness activities that both children and parents will enjoy.
Montreal, QC -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/16/2015 -- King Athletic, designer of the speed rope, announces three fun family activities for parents that want to help their children exercise more and develop a love for working out. Through its skipping ropes for athletes and non-athletes, King Athletic helps families get into the habit of group exercising as a way of bonding and improving their fitness and health. Children spend many hours every day playing games and socializing through tablets and smartphones, foregoing physical activity. It is crucial that they integrate exercising into their lives to stay healthy.
Family fitness activities doesn't mean monthly gym memberships for all. Families don't need expensive equipment or a personal trainer to make exercising a part of their lives. Fun fitness activities can be done with no equipment at all or with inexpensive props like resistance bands and jump ropes. Families can work out together at home and outdoors. Simple activities such as taking a brisk walk after dinner or dancing in the living room to the latest dance hits every Sunday are enjoyable activities that burn calories, create a lot of laughter and silliness, and let children associate working out with fun and pleasure, King Athletic's spokesperson explains.
For families watching TV shows together, King Athletic recommends turning commercial breaks into mini opportunities for exercising. Classic exercises like squats and push ups are quick go-to activities. Coming up with fun or silly names for these exercises makes them even more appealing for young children.
A third family-friendly activity King Athletic recommends is having a sports night every week. "Choose a day and dedicate it to exercising together. Knowing that every Tuesday is Jumping Rope Day helps children make a habit of it and build anticipation for exercising," King Athletic's spokesperson Benjamin Davies said today.
As King Athletic advises, it's crucial that parents stick to these family activities. Seeing their parents excited about these working-out-together activities encourages children to participate in them too. In the long-term, these activities will nurture a love for exercising and fitness, and ensure children live active lifestyles that improve their health.
It's all about getting creative in how to incorporate exercising into family life. Exercising teaches discipline, helps the family bond, and prioritizes the ideals of health and fitness.
