“Family comes first”, I believe you heard this one over and over, but for athletes it’s not that easy, as they will be baffled without a doubt when trying to answer which one comes first for them, “family or sport”, since they both come first for them and it is difficult for children to reconcile the two of them all the time.

This is where we come in to provide you with the solution of combining both in these fun sport family activities.

Swimming

We all know how important swimming is for fitness and the health of the cardiovascular system, we also know it is one of the most fun activities for both adults and children, so don’t hesitate to take your children to the swimming pool or to the beach where you can spend some fun family time and exercise all of your body muscles, while burning some calories and getting some charming tan.

Cycling

It is also another favorite activity for both adults and children, all you have to do is go somewhere out in the open where there isn’t a lot of cars like the park, and there you can spend your time practicing a healthy activity that is good for your body and your relationship with your family, this also presents a good opportunity for you to tell your children how beneficial cycling is for both the body and the environment.

Hiking

Back your bags, put on your comfortable shoes, and take your tents if you are planning on camping after a long hiking day, as this activity is not just one that helps move your body, it is an extremely rich experience and has both physical and psychological benefits, give your children some adventure and go out into mother nature, using this chance to teach them some lessons about nature and how to deal with it and respect it. It is worth mentioning that studies have shown that hiking improves the creative abilities and problem-solving skills in both children and adults.

Rowing

Find someone who is an expert, don’t forget your lifeguards and chose a safe place then you’re good to go, or should I say row; it is well known that rowing is one of the best sports to exercise the upper body.

It is also a great family experience which improves team spirit while having your family work out, but wait, that’s not the whole deal, since you can also swim during your trip, getting the benefits of both these activities, not to mention the skills your children will benefit from personally and academically as you set up a target and assign tasks to each one of you.

Indoor games

The weather may prevent you from going for outdoor activities, but that could be easily dealt with, as you can go to your city’s family sports center and practice some indoor sports like ping pong, badminton, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and bowling, which all are family activities, where you can compete with other families to get more fun out of it, while encouraging you children to stay in shape so that they can win and beat other teams.

Ice skating

It is one of the best and most fun winter sports, take your children and have some fun on the ice ring, try to choose an ice ring that isn’t very crowded so you can get the time and the space for this fun sport, or simply go for rollerblading instead of ice-skating if there are no ice rings in your area, and make sure to choose a wide-open place with a suitable floor and plenty of space to make sure you’ll have a great experience and more freedom moving around.
