Making exercise a priority for your family doesn’t need to be difficult, because there are many ways to turn it into fun! We’ve rounded up a few of our favourite ways to integrate exercise into your family’s leisure time and routines.
Things To Do Every Day
You probably have to walk the dog after work today, or clean up a room after the weekend’s mess. Turn it into a fun family activity, and it won’t seem like such a chore anymore. A dance party in the lounge while you clear up the bookshelf, or taking the kids with for a run around the park while exercising the dog, turns a half hour chore into family fun and quality time, all bundled into one.
Early Risers, Assemble!
If you’re up early every day, perhaps you should start dancing. No, really – dancing your way towards sunrise is very much an available item for your family’s diary now, as Secret Sunrise events now take place regularly in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. Check out when the next Secret Sunrise takes place in your city and book tickets for your whole family. It’s a kid-friendly, fun way to start your day together.
Saturday Mornings, Sorted
And if your Saturday mornings usually start a little earlier than you’d like, well, you’re up anyway so you may as well begin it the best way – with a Parkrun! Parkrun is a 5-kilometre timed race that takes place at venues across the country each Saturday morning. They’re family-friendly and lots of fun – and yes, you can walk it too.

Big Plans For A Picnic?
And if your weekend afternoons seem a little open-ended, pack up your picnic basket and head off to a nearby park. The kids can play, you can enjoy a little sunshine and everyone gets a little time out. Don't forget to pack your sunscreen!
