4 Easy Ways You Can Include the Family in Your Fitness


You do not need to worry about scheduling your exercises around your kids’ schedules or trying to squeeze it in while they are away at school for the day. Instead, invite the entire family to join the fun. This is not only a great way to get everyone healthy, but it is also a ton of fun. Some of your best memories may be time spent working out and enjoying exercise as a family. Use these four tips to get the entire family involved in fitness!

Do Adaptable Exercises
Here at Garage Grind Training, most of the exercises we provide are adaptable and scalable to fitness enthusiasts of every skill level and strength. This flexibility allows you to get your family in on all of the exercises. For example, if you are lifting weights, the kids can do the same exercises with just body weight or do variations of the exercise. In some cases, you can even help your kids think of alternative exercises to do while you are sticking to your daily workout. Find what works for everyone in the family and everyone will be laughing and having fun shortly!

Spend Time Outside
You cannot go wrong with bringing the whole family outside and spending time doing fun activities. When you are outside, the workout brings itself. Whether it is bringing your daily Garage Grind Training workout outside or just hiking around or taking a walk, it is all good! Being in nature and working out releases endorphins and boosts your mood, leaving the whole family feeling great and fit.

Inspire Friendly Competition
There is no better way to get the entire family physically active than by a little friendly competition. Whether it is seeing who can do the most jumping jacks or having a race, this is a great way to get the kids laughing, having fun, and working out! Switch things up by offering an incentive for winning. Perhaps the winner gets to pick the next exercise or gets to pick where the family will enjoy dinner after a good workout.

Pick a Fun Sport or Activity
Getting exercise as a family does not just mean doing workouts and lifting weights, exercise can come in many forms. Pick your kids’ favorite sport or activity and enjoy doing it as a family. You may be surprised how much of a sweat you will work up by just playing soccer or swimming with your family. This is a great alternative if you want a break from your daily workout routine or would like to incorporate some extra fitness into your day.
