Family Health & Fitness

September 28 marked the sixth annual Family Health & Fitness Day USA, a national health and fitness event for families.

The event's purpose was to promote family involvement in physical activity.

Local organizations throughout the country hosted family-related health and fitness events at schools, parks, hospitals, YMCAs/YWCAs, malls, health clubs, and other community locations.

Activities were noncompetitive and included

  • walking events,

  • low-impact exercises,

  • health screenings,

  • open houses,

  • sock hops, and

  • health information workshops.
  • Even if you couldn't find a Family Health & Fitness Day USA activity in your area, start today involving everybody in your family in some sort of physical activity.

    Family fitness events at home are a great way for the family to bond while working toward better health.
