Boo! Time for Exercise

Trick-or-treating, candy, costumes —oh my! Halloween is a great time to get the family together for spooky fun… and some exercise! Keep your family in optimal health this spooky season. Here are some festive activities inspired by all things Halloween.

The Frankenstein Walk

This one is great for kids. Have them stand with their feet together and arms extended out like Frankenstein. Then, have your kiddos walk forward, taking significant steps and stomping their feet. They should keep their arms stiff and out in front of them as they walk!

Pumpkin Squats

Get those legs burning with this squat variation. Start in a standing position, then lower yourself into a squat. As you do so, place your hands behind your head like you’re holding a pumpkin. Return to standing and repeat.

Coffin Sit-Ups

This exercise is sure to get your heart rate up. Lie on your back with your legs extended, and your arms crossed over your chest like you’re in a coffin. Then, sit up, keeping your arms close to your chest. Return to lying down and repeat.

Monster Crawls

This one is great for the whole family! Get down on all fours like a monster. Then, crawl forward, keeping your back and legs straight. As you move, alternate which arm and leg move forward simultaneously. This movement should be slow and controlled.

Zombie Kicks

Time to get those legs moving! Start standing, then raise one leg in front of you, keeping it stiff. From here, kick your leg forward like a zombie. Return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg.

Black Cat Yoga

End your workout with some relaxation… in the form of yoga! Get into a downward-facing dog position, then lower your hips and raise your tailbone to form an inverted “V” shape. Next, arch your back and let your head hang down like a spooky black cat. Hold this position for a few deep breaths before returning to the downward-facing dog.
