The Family That Plays Together Stays Together!
Let's move and shape those abs for summer! Macaroni Kid encourages quality family time and wellness in all that we do. We know that families working towards a common goal can do anything (sky’s the limit!) when employing teamwork and each other’s support. We know bettering your family is your goal and we aim to give you some tools to do so.
This is our fitness call to you and your family! “Our Family Moves” is about making a commitment to move together; after all, “the family that plays together stays together!”
Simply print this calendar every month. Fill in your team’s names. Discuss the challenge at the next family meeting or during family dinner and talk strategy! Divide up the task so that it’s doable, yet challenging and rewarding for all. Make a plan for the day, the week, and the month. Create a family motto; “in it to win it!” or “all together now!” Set mini goals towards the challenge. Break it up, keep track, and most importantly, support one another!
Hang this “Our Family Moves” calendar on the fridge, or somewhere everyone can see, and remember to do your part each day. This month, we’re challenging you and your family to do a 1,000 bicycles! Yes, it's summer and we know you're hitting the beach, so we're targeting the abs and tightening your tummies! Lie on back with hands behind head, feet out straight in the air. Bring one knee to meet opposite elbow, creating an ab crunch. Then switch sides. Keep going 'til you've racked 1,000!
Brainstorm how many bicycles each person must do a day to meet the goal as a team. Do them together! Your family can MOVE! Ready? Set....bathing suits!!
