Health Tip of the Day

Getting Started on Family Exercise

  • Tailor a family exercise program to your children's ages. If you have a 4-year-old, play games a child that age likes to play.

  • Make getting in shape a family commitment. Schedule time during the week to exercise together.

  • If family members are of varying fitness levels, exercise at a level most comfortable for the slowest, least-fit person.

  • Plan a family fitness vacation once a year.

  • Join a family-oriented fitness club or the YMCA.

  • Unless you and your children are evenly matched, fitness activities shouldn't involve adult-child competition. It's better to just exercise together.
