Summer Biking and the Best Children´s Fitness Program

The long sunny days of the summer provide a better opportunity to get outdoors and moving. Today at Stretch and Grow Winston, we want to share a great way to enjoy the summer, as a family, while learning to be more physically active.

This Summer Use Your Bike More

A great way to start getting active and enjoying the outdoors is to use your bike instead of the car this summer. This provides additional benefits to your economy and the environment but more than anything it is good for your health. It also teaches kids that there is more than just one way of getting your exercise in. Anytime you have to run an errand nearby, instead of grabbing the car keys reach out for your bike helmet and your bike. You can even get all the family involved and try a new biking experience. Try to choose at least one day of the week or the weekend to go on a ¨surprise bike trip.¨

Fun Biking Activity for the Family

Try to choose at least one day of the week or the weekend to go on a ¨surprice bike trip.¨ All you need to do is open google maps on your phone/tablet/computer etc. Locate your home, then zoom in until the screen displays your neighborhood. Have your child close his eyes and point to anywhere on the screen. Wherever he/she points is your destination. Get directions to that destination, try to use a new route you haven´t been on before, and start riding your bike to that spot. You may discover new things and places around your neighborhood that you hadn´t seen before. This is an exciting way to get some exercise this summer and create memories as a family.

Children´s Fitness Classes This Summer

The summer is the perfect time to get your child started on a healthier track. At Stretch and Grow Winston our classes are centered around building better exercise habits while having a blast! Bring your child and watch how they embark on a healthier lifestyle this summer. Call 336-287-1193 today.
