Let's face it! We all know that it is not easy keeping all kids interested in working out or exercising while indulging in all of the holiday treats we all love!
Here are a few suggestions to introducing some new interactive games to keep your child or teen active and burn off those excess holiday calories... who knows, maybe even some Holiday gift ideas...
Wii Fit (Nintendo) -- a very fun, interactive game combining fun and fitness. Although on a small pad, you still can get a good workout in either yoga, strength, aerobics, balance, and more. There is now a Wii Fit Plus version with newer software, programs, etc. For some it can be a great workout, for others it is not as strenuous but at least you are active, off of the couch, and having a great time!
Dance Dance Revolution or the like -- another very fun exercise option where you are on your feet dancing to your favorite tunes and definitely getting in a good workout. You are able to do this alone or compete with a friend and see who wins all while having fun!
Fitness Exercise Bike or Equipment
Exercise videos to do at home (as long as you know they like it and will do it):
