USA Today's Family Fitness Challenge

Families working together toward better fitness. Now that's a GREAT idea!

I'm late on the trigger for this, but USA Today's Family Fitness Challenge series has some great ideas about families working together toward good fitness. Check it out here on the website. The program started in June and went throughout the summer with articles every week about ideas and themes for family fitness activities.

We've tried to adopt this sort of activity as well. For example, my youngest son decided he wanted to play tennis. It's so easy to find a tennis court and play a few sets of tennis. A few weeks ago, we decided we wanted to go to a local park and have a "home run" derby. Anything that gets you outdoors moving around with your children is great.

The key is identifying activities that children and parents will ALL enjoy together. If you check out the Family Fitness Challenge, you may find some ideas to help get yourself out with your family in a new activity.

I'm going to take a few days off from posting, so you'll hear back from me in about a week or so.
