One of the keys to encouraging children to develop health habits is by making fitness a way of life. The great news is there are a variety of ways to lead an active lifestyle that are suitable for the whole family, including kids of all ages. Let these creative ideas help you turn each day into an opportunity to get fit and have fun as a family. As with any workout, it’s important to have the proper gear, and that starts with footwear.

1 Visit a playground: Choose your own adventure, taking note of your favourite parks and playgrounds and their features, such as skate parks, swings, slides and climbing walls.

2 Learn a new sport: From tennis to golf to touch football, there are a variety of ways to experience healthy activities as a group.

3 Participate in a run: Whether you’re a seasoned runner or have just signed up for your firs marathon, many fundraising races are designed to accommodate the whole family. For younger children, search for events that allow baby strollers or that host a separate fun run for the kids.

4 Get outdoors: Explore a new hiking trail to make memories and enjoy stunning scenery. Cater to all family members by choosing the length and level of difficulty of the hike.

5 Exercise shouldn’t be a chore: With new gear, a great attitude and a sense of adventure, getting fit as a family will be fun. —Statepoint
