Staying Active in Winter

Just because the sun isn't shining and the weather isn't ideal doesn't mean there aren't fun ways to exercise with your youngster. Below is a great post from Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC with tips on keeping your children active during the cold season.

Photography

Everybody loves taking photos! So why not use the beautiful scenes winter provides to embrace this hobby with your youngster? Instead of staying in and taking selfies, put on a jacket and take a walk around your neighborhood or local park to take pictures. Whether it's foliage being affected by the changing season or animals nesting, walking around and taking photos is a great (and healthy) reason to get out of the house and enjoy some incidental exercise.

Dance! Dance! Dance!

If your family fun night just involves watching a movie then it's time to shake it up - literally! Karaoke and dancing games are available on a range of consoles and modern TV units which run on the Android platform or are connected to an Apple TV and can turn your living room into a karaoke studio! The best thing about this is that singing and dancing go hand in hand, with your children getting exercise without them even knowing it! Of course, be sure that you don't let them have all the fun and get involved yourself!

Group Exercise

Structured group exercise sessions like the children's fitness classes at Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC are great for both getting your child active during the cold season and helping them to make new friends. Whether it's throwing and catching balls, running around with parachutes, or even dancing (with tips learned from your Karaoke sessions), group exercise at Stretch-n-Grow, Winston/Salem, NC: Jennifer Hansel is a great option.

Children's Fitness Classes Are Great!
