Family fitness ideas for the spring
Spring time is a fantastic time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and warm temperatures. It’s also a great time to get physically active, as being physically active ensures you and your family stays healthy and happy. Here are some outdoor activities your family can participate in to boost fitness and enjoy quality time together.
- Go to a park. Local parks offer large green spaces and playgrounds. Pack up a picnic lunch to enjoy with your family and then play Frisbee or catch, enjoy the playground, fly kites, etc. Baton Rouge offers many parks throughout the area that your family can enjoy.
- Take a bike ride. Many flowers and trees start to bloom in the spring. Instead of viewing the new springtime growth from a car, get your family onto bikes and take a bike ride through your neighborhood. Bicycle riding is a great way to improve your cardiovascular health, reduce stress and tone and strengthen your legs.
- Take a walk. If biking isn’t your thing, a walk is a great way to improve fitness and spending quality time with your family. A walk after dinner each night can help digest dinner, burn extra calories and reduce stress. Want to make the walk more fun? Challenge your family members to a race to the other end of the block or to walk without stepping on any cracks.
- Go for a hike. Put on your hiking shoes and enjoy nature with a hike. BREC’s Comite River Park has hiking trails your family can enjoy without having to drive too far.
