Each May, the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition encourages Americans to #MoveinMay in celebration of National Physical Fitness & Sports Month. This year, we are all getting creative in how we are staying active while also social distancing or staying within our “pods.” Here are just a few ways you can get moving, without even leaving your American Legend Home, courtesy of Action for Healthy Kids:
Bust out those hula hoops and jump ropes and compete with your family members for longest hoop record or best jump rope trick! These may not be official sports, but they’re a great way to get moving and have fun with your family.
Catching a little TV? Not a problem! Participate with your family and see if you can hold a plank for an entire commercial break or spend the breaks running in place for a quick and fun family workout.
Compete with your family in an Olympic Style event! Who can run the fastest sprint or jump the furthest?
Try a new sport together! Frisbee, badminton, croquet and bocce ball are all easy sports to learn and play in your yard.
American Legend Homes wants all of our families to get and stay healthy. Enjoy this month’s activities and consider making them a regular habit for the whole family!
