Easy ways to Stay Active this Autumn and Winter

As the evenings get darker and the weather gets colder, it’s tempting to stay inside in front of the TV every night. Yet too much time on the sofa is bad for you and the kids, so as the temperature drops be sure to make an effort to keep the whole family active. You might not be able to go for long walks or bike rides in the rain, but there are plenty of easy ways to stay fit and healthy this winter – in the warmth.

If you want to get out of the house and make sure the family gets the recommended amount of weekly exercise, take a look at these ideas for some inspiration.

Jump at Rush

Keep the whole family entertained at Rush UK, where people of all ages can bounce away their troubles. When you jump at Rush you have the whole trampoline park to explore, which includes Rush wipeout, an adrenaline assault course, the battle beam and basketball courts. There’s fun for the whole family and you can really make a day of it by stopping for lunch or dinner in the café to refuel after your session.

Rock climbing

Indoor activities are a good idea at this time of year, because you can never depend on the weather! If it’s too cold to get outdoor then there’s still plenty of indoor fun to be had if you know where to go. Try rock climbing which is a challenge for the whole family – who will be able to reach the top?

Ice skating

Whether it’s an indoor ice skating rink or a temporary outdoor pop-up rink for the winter holidays, ice skating is a great family activity. Wrap up warm and practice gliding along the ice – just try not to fall over!

Learn to ski

If you’re planning a winter holiday then keep it active by choosing a ski holiday. The whole family can learn to ski or snowboard, or if you’re all advanced already you can learn some new tricks. Spending a few days on the slopes is a great workout, and if you’re not planning to go too far from home then look up your nearest indoor artificial ski slope.

Finding ways to break a sweat in autumn and winter isn’t always easy, but most activities are really fun so there’s no excuse!
