An action for every season
Stretch your body, calm your mind
The post-holiday season can be a stressful time. Join your kids for some yoga and mindfulness exercises to help clear their heads. Doing these practices regularly can build lifelong healthy habits!
New year, new smoothies
Smoothies have become a big part of people’s health routines—and they’re a GREAT way to get kids to eat their veggies. But the same old ingredients can get boring, so make the new year a fresh start for your smoothie flavors and combinations.
Take the Superbowl Challenge
The Super Bowl is just around the corner. Get kids involved in game-watching activities by inviting them to work out alongside the athletes. Play this game for a night of fitness and fun!
