"Family Fitness"

Bike_riding_058_2 Everyone knows the healthy benefits of exercising, but it's not always easy to get everyone involved.  You can encourage your family to become fit by following these tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

Limit how much time your children spend watching TV and playing video games.

Don't eat snacks or meals in front of the TV.  If possible, exercise while watching TV.

Schedule family fitness activities such as biking, hiking or tennis.

Set exercise goals as a family to help everyone stick to the fitness plan.

Encourage your children to try individual sports, such as tennis, swimming or biking, that can be done all through life.    

I have already purchased my gear to begin swimming.  I figured that since I have two coaches in the family, with  Will and Jack, the "Swimmers", I have no excuse anymore.
