Challenge your family to move more
The challenges below will get your family moving and will help make being physically active a part of everyday life. You can also check out our handy tips for more great ways to get started.
Play some classic fun games such as an egg and spoon race, a race with plastic cups of water balanced on everyone’s heads, a three-legged race or even a tug of war.
Break out your kids’ favourite superhero costumes – or make a costume together – then head to the park with your own little league of superheroes!
Try some strengthening exercises you haven't already tried. Here's some ideas to get you started:
During the ad breaks, mute the sound on the TV and take turns calling out an animal name. Everyone has to move like that animal to a finish line (or the end of the ad break!). Make it more fun by making the animal noise too! You could also use this challenge to break up time spent sitting behind the computer or game device and schedule breaks.
Challenge your family this week to do a 30 minute walk. Once you are comfortable with this, move to a brisk walk and if you are physically able to, progress to a jog. It does not have to be for a long time or distance, just take small steps to get started.
