Get Up and Go: Fun Ideas for Getting Fit as a Family by Jennifer Flanders
Are family is busy..busy..busy; as I am sure most are. Even though we have lots to do in such a short time period as 24 hours; somehow we seem to find time for all of our electronic devices. TV, video games, tablets, kindles, Gameboys and smart phones have seemed to taken over in todays society. And just like most people our family uses many of the same devices. So we may be exercising our mind through these devices, but what about our bodies? Who even has time for that?
The book "Get Up and Go" authored by Jennifer Flanders could be the answer to these questions. The book is divided into 18 sections with titles such as Household Chores, Let's get wet and wild or Winter Workouts. Each section is then divided into 111 short chapters with titles such as Lake Front Fun, Sitting on the Wall, or A Brave way to Shave. Each chapter is composed of a fun activity for each family to do together to keep fit and active.
In a sit down world where electronics have taken over my kids, I need something fresh and fun. This book was fantastic at giving me some different activities to get my family up and moving. My kids loved that we did the activities together as a family and each activity was fun! It didn't feel like exercise at all...we were just having fun together.
