Long walks are a very easy way to get your whole family to do something healthy together. In fact, walking is a top fitness alternative because you can make it fun too. For instance, walk around the children’s track at their school or make walking around the block with the dog a few nights a week a family ritual. Walking lowers your family’s risk of heart disease, improves your mood, and is a great time for your family to catch up on each other’s lives. 

Join a Family Dance Class

Joining a dance class is fun for the entire family. Your family can join a belly dancing or hip-hop dance class with an instructor. Within as little as a month, your family can start to improve their health. Best of all, some classes are completely free. Let the kids help decide what kind of dance classes you’ll take as a family. Taking a family dance class is also a great opportunity for your family to bond. 

Register for a Charity Run 

A charity run is a chance for your family to accomplish something together as well as stay fit. There are several charity runs in your city that can offer you an opportunity to stay fit, give back to the community, fund medical research,  or bring attention to social awareness. Start off with a small charity run to stay healthy as a family, but to also teach your children the value of community service.

You may have a hard time getting dad involved, but yoga can be a lot of fun for the entire family. Best of all, yoga has proven to enhance the mind, body, and spirit. Why not get your whole family involved by using a free and fun mobile yoga app from the convenience of your own home? Yoga is one of the easiest ways to keep your family healthy.
