Challenge your family to move more

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.


  • Make time this week to incorporate some strength building exercise. The playground is a good place to start. Use the monkey bars to lift yourself up, do lunges against a park bench or step-ups. Every little bit counts.

  • Get the family to do three different activities listed in the Resources section by the time your family's Good Habits for Life program is finished.

  • Challenge your whole family to see how many push-ups, lunges or jumps you can all fit into five minute bursts. See if you can beat your best time week after week.

  • If your family is watching TV, be active while watching for 10 minutes. You could all fold laundry, stretch, do sit-ups or jumping jacks... basically anything that gets you huffing and puffing a bit.

  • Hold a scavenger hunt! Print out our Scavenger Hunt guide or check out the other Resources available.
