It’s Halloween weekend, so while you are enjoying treats, make sure you fit in fitness to offset any extra calories you may enjoy this holiday!

Halloween is the perfect time to enjoy dancing as a way to burn calories and have fun. Try “the monster mash” or other Halloween tunes and dance while you party! If you plan to trick or treat, enjoy a few extra laps around the neighborhood without stopping at every house for a treat! Instead, take the opportunity to enjoy the fall weather and take in the eerie sights and sounds of Halloween as you walk through a park, neighborhood or local trail.

Making weekend plans? Be sure to fit in some fun fitness activities that the whole family can enjoy.

It’s hot, it’s summer, cool off and take a swim! Enjoy a dip in the pool or hit the beach!

Swimming is one of the safest, most effective forms of exercise and recruits all of the major muscle groups. Be sure to stay hydrated by drinking fluids, especially when swimming for extended periods in the heat. Beginning swimmers should be well-supervised and should consider swim lessons by a certified instructor. Check your local colleges and community centers for a list of instructors and locations.

Be safe and be fit with friends and family!
