Happy Halloween! Lucky enough Halloween falls on a Saturday this year! What a great opportunity to enjoy a day and night full of the festivities. Why not start with some fun exercise with your family before the treats start rolling in?
Here are some Frighteningly Fun ideas:
Fright Night- Children love playing games!
- Treasure Hunt around the house or backyard
- Play freeze dance to a Halloween song (the Monster Mash, Scooby Doo or Thriller)
- Create a Halloween inspired workout: Frankenstein Walk and Skips, traveling inch worms, spider walks and bear crawls.
Boot Camp Scavenger Hunt
Turn an ordinary outdoor exercise into a scavenger hunt by creating teams and asking them to collect a few, small Halloween-themed items along a running trail: A small pumpkin, skull, candle, rubber spiders. You only need to hide a few items before everyone gets into the fun and share a fun pre- Halloween calorie burn.
Always remember being proactive is better than reactive when it comes to fitness and diet. Earn the treat(s) before you splurge and have fun while you are doing it. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!!
