FUN Family Fitness you can do at home

With winter upon us it is definitely hard to get outside for any type of physical activity. Some of our BF third graders have put together a video to show you some easy fun exercises you can do at home with the entire family. We do exercises like this in our house during a commercial break of the kids' favorite show before bed time.

- shovel snow / sledding / snowball fight
