Health Tip: Keep Your Family Fit

(HealthDay News) -- You don't have to make staying fit a go-it-alone activity. Have the rest of the family join in.

The Shapeup.org website offers these suggestions for family-fitness activities:

  • Start a regular family tennis match.

  • Head out with the family pet for a jog or a walk.

  • Go to the park and rent a paddleboat, or hit the trails for a walk or run.

  • Take a yoga class together.

  • Play a family game of whiffleball or volleyball.

  • Dance to your favorite music, or use steps or a solid bench to do some step-aerobics together.

  • Challenge your clan to walk as many city blocks as you can.
