Exercise Can Mean Quality Time With Your Loved Ones

By Hans Bremer, Personal Trainer, Elite Sports Club-Mequon

Exercise and fitness are great ways to get out and have a good time with friends and family. Everyone is at different fitness levels, but there are plenty of options out there for everyone to enjoy.

Family Exercise

With your spouse or significant other, if you don’t share similar interests, you can take some general fitness classes together or do some couples personal training or tennis lessons. If you do share similar fitness interests, like the same sport or activity, get out there and do it TOGETHER!

Go on a nice long walk or a bike ride with your parents or grandparents. Nothing beats an inter-generational workout. You might even learn something along the way. Spend time with your children swimming or practicing their favorite sport. Join a facility that encourages children to get involved in exercise and physical activity. Everyone loves to PLAY, so get out and play with your kids! Be involved in their growth and learning about health and nutrition.

Exercise with your friends! Do group personal training, enroll in a boot camp together, or join a sports league. If you’re going to hang out with your friends you might as well have some fun playing and exercising while you do it.

Exercise and physical activity with your friends and loved ones is a great way to have fun and is extremely beneficial to both your physical and mental health at the same time. Grab your friends and family and GET OUT THERE!
