Tips to help your family sit less and move more

We’ve got a whole library of practical tips to help you and your family get moving! Keep it fun by trying out some of our challenges, too.


  • There are lots of things you can do at home to build strength. Why not try using tins of tomatoes as hand weights?

  • Regular physical activity helps to strengthen your bones.

  • If you're able to pick the kids up after school, why not head straight to the park for some fun time together?

  • Get your family into some fun activities that strengthen their muscles, like swinging on monkey bars, playing tug-o-war or gymnastics.

  • Small changes to your routine can mean more opportunities for your family to move more. Park your car in the furthest parking space from the shop's entrance, then walk to the shops.
