Down For Defense: Fall Fitness

It's time to jump into Fall Fitness! Check out our tips for staying active and keeping yourself moving!

Tip #1- Start your day off right!

Start your morning off with a couple of simple stretches to get your body energized for the day.  Try stretches like sitting on your bedroom floor and reaching for your toes or putting your arms straight out to your sides and creating big and small circles. (Be careful not to break anything!) This will get you ready to take on the world!  If you're feeling extra tired, listen to your favorite song to get motivated.  Also, be sure to eat a healthy breakfast before leaving your home.  It's important to create healthy eating habits.  Peanut butter and eggs are both excellent sources of protein to help you start your day off right! (Although, we don't recommend eating them together. Talk about bad combo!)

Tip #2- Take that extra step!

Whether you're shopping or at school, always take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.  When you're in between classes, instead of socializing at your locker with a group of friends, ask your friends to take a couple of "speed walking" laps around the halls.  It's also a great way to socialize with new people and chat with people you may not see everyday, while also getting fit at the same time.  Simple activities like this really add up at the end of the day.

Tip #3- Keep your energy going!

After a long day at school, you deserve to take a little time to relax. If you like watching TV, Find fun exercises to do during the breaks of your favorite shows!  For example, during the commercials you could see how many push-ups, sit-ups, or jumping jacks you could do! It's a great way to relax and unwind while also keeping active.

These three simple tips will help you keep healthy, but there are still many more things you can do to stay fit!  Try joining a sports team or joining a dance class.  These are great ways to stay healthy and to have fun with friends. It's always easier to make healthy choices when you have your BFF making the right choices, too.  Work as a team and make it fun!
