Drop & Give me 10 Snow Angels, NOW!
I’m Steve Power, one of the certified personal trainers here at The Clubs at Charles River Park. In addition to training health club members and participants from Massachusetts General Hospital’s Be Fit wellness program, I teach “gym” classes for Boston Children’s School and the MGH Daycare.
As you can imagine, there are a number of differences working out with kids vs. adults but in my experience playing with your kids can actually be a great workout. I’m going to be blogging more about this over the coming months but today I thought highlighting some “old school” winter activities would be somewhat timely; I mean its December so it’s going to snow at some point, right?
Sledding, skiing, snowboarding, ice skating and even making snowmen and snow angels are all great calorie burning activities.
Get out there and do it, have some fun!
Between me and you, I love shopping in general and ramp it up even more for the holidays. (I know, you don’t hear that from most men!) I came across this great Snowman Family Kit from LL Bean that’s makes a fabulous holiday gift and encourages outdoor activity.
Everyone reaps the benefits of playing outside – from creating lasting memories for your kids to burning calories to spending time together, there are almost too many to list. Just make sure you dress warmly!
