Fitness and Family Time is your source for summer recipes and family fun. Of course, it’s important to work in some exercise too! That’s why we’ve compiled a list of easy ways to step up your fitness without sacrificing family time this summer.   

Walking is a super easy and affordable option for some healthy family time. You can stroll around the neighborhood or even venture to a nearby park or playground.

Bicycles are another great way to exercise and use as an alternate form of transportation.   

Hit the beach and instead of simply lying out in the sun, enjoy sand volleyball, toss a beach ball in the shallow water or even challenge each other to swimming races. Don’t forget easy snacks like sandwiches using  lunchmeat from your grocer’s deli to refuel the family during an active day.   

Games like catch with a baseball or basketball at your local park are inexpensive ways to get in some exercise too. They also come with supplies that are easy to transport – especially if your family decides to walk or ride bikes to the park!   

Be sure you have appropriate safety equipment like helmets for bicycling and you observe any special rules, such as staying in the shallow end of a pool or swimming area at a beach when necessary. Have a happy and healthy summer from!
