Together, you can set individual fitness goals, make plans to reach them, and, ultimately, help each other stick with the program. A well-planned and balanced program will let each family member • pursue individual exercise as well as •join in group activities. (If you are -not accustomed to vigorous exercise or are seriously overweight, you -should check with a physician before ! starting any fitness program.) For a practical approach to family fitness, read these suggestions from Better Homes and Gardens. • Remember a balanced fitness program aims for total wellness. That means you should emphasize good nutrition, stress management, adequate rest and weight control as well as exercise. • Start a family fitness log. In it, list each individual's goal, plus the family's goals. Losing weight, reducing the risk of heart disease, conditioning for a competitive sport, alleviating emotional stress, feeling and looking better, improving family relations and even just having a good time are all goals you might set. As you work into your fitness program, record progress toward those goals in your log. • Keep a separate page in the log for each family member's statistics. Note starting weight and resting heart rate, and update those statistics each week. If losing fat is a goal, measure waist and hips each week, too. (A skinfold caliper is an excellent, easy-to-use tool for measuring body fat.) • Chart each person's heart rate two minutes after finishing a workout. As your fitness improves, your heart will recover from work and return to its resting rate faster. • Work into your fitness program gradually to reduce the chance of sore muscles and injury. For example, if you are beginning a running program, alternate jogging and walking each block or so, gradually eliminating the walk. Work out only 20 minutes per session at first. For the first few weeks, keep your heart rate closer to 70 than 85 percent of the maximum rate. • Win the cooperation of the entire family from the start. Select activities together that everyone can enjoy or at least try to do. Encourage everyone in the family to be flexible and to participate in each other's favorite sport or exercise activity. • Join a family fitness center or a Y. Get advice from the professionals on the staff. (Ideally, professionals should have degrees in physical ed- ucation, exercise science or sports medicine.) Even when you go as a family, you can each choose your own exercise. • Let each family member be your fitness leader for a week, choosing the week's activities with the approval of the others. Keep track of leaders and activities in your fitness log. • Vary activities so no one gets bored. Swimming, bicycling, jogging, canoeing, backpacking, cross- country skiing, skating, aerobic dancing and vigorous walking all provide excellent exercise. Brisk walking is safer and more comfortable than jogging. It's especially good exercise for those who are older, have been sedentary, or have muscle or joint problems. • Ask an experienced person to show you what to do and how to do it the first time you try an activity. Check with the staff at a community education or recreation department, Y, fitness center or sporting goods store for advice on where to take lessons from a trained instructor. • Consider setting up a home exercise center in the spare room, basement or garage. Talk with fitness experts and visit several sporting goods or department stores to get id jas on equipment to include in your exercise area. • Think of fitness as family en- tertainment. Instead of going to a movie, for instance, head to the Y or fitness center, or make hiking and picnicking a daylong event. • Choose activities and times during the day that are convenient for all. It's too easy to skip sessions that require much traveling or getting up far earlier than everyone is used to. • Set specific days each week for your activities. Most people work out on alternate days or three times a week. It's best not to work out more than five or six times a week. The chance of injury is greater with a higher frequency of workouts. • To help prevent soreness later, include a warm-up and cool-down time in each workout. During the warm-up, stretch, do light calisthenics, then ease into the most strenuous exercise. Cool down by slowing gradually, and stretch out when you finish exercising. • Remember that children need vigorous activity as much as adults do. Healthy kids should have at least 15 to 30 minutes of continuous physical activity daily, but youngsters are more vulnerable than adults, both physically and emotionally. Don't force a child to compete or to specialize in one sport too early. Instead, involve children in activities in which they can participate. Don't expose them to high- pressure or dangerous situations. $3 OFF 20 Color Portraits 2-8x10s 3 - 5x7s 15 wallets NOW ONLY with coupon (reg. 12.95) Children of all ages, adults and groups.
