Adidas Originals UK: fun for all the family

We all know that exercise is good for us, but getting the whole family involved in physical activity can sometimes be a challenge. Getting together as a group to exercise and get fit can act as important family bonding time, as well as doing our bodies some good. So, as an alternative to the gym, why not try something a little newer and a lot more exciting? 

Fitness crazes that have sprung up in recent years, such as Zumba and Capoeira, are fun, family-friendly activities that are sure to go down well with all ages. The spirit of these activities – combining dance with lots of other types of movement, such as the influence of martial arts in Capoeira – makes them far less repetitive than going to the gym. This means that they are perfect for those of us who aren’t obsessed with treadmills and cross-trainers. 

Of course, to take part in these exercises you’re going to need to shop around for the ideal sportswear. Brands such as Adidas Originals have a huge range for everyone in the family, from toddlers’ tracksuits to stylish hoodies and tops for teens. Getting kitted out in your favourite brands together could make the difference between a boring workout and a great, family-centred activity!

Exercising as a family can have a beneficial long-term impact, too. According to the Benenden Healthcare Society, exercising with the family will encourage kids to adopt a healthy lifestyle later in life. Child activity expert Michelle Ball explains: “Parents are powerful role-models …Children respond very effectively when the whole family gets involved.” With the Olympic Games only months away, there has never been a better time to get yourself and your family exercising. Embrace the opportunities that come with new fitness fads by getting involved in something a little different – you never know if a new form of exercise will be just the thing to get your family fit and active.
