99 Tips for Family Fitness...

... HERE.

Here are tips for the home:

6. Designate indoor and outdoor play areas where rolling, climbing, jumping, and tumbling are allowed.

7. Buy toys or equipment that promote physical activity.

8. Select fitness-oriented gifts with the recipient's skills and interests in mind.

9. Limit time spent watching television programs, videotapes, and playing computer games.

10. Use physical activity rather than food as a reward (e.g. family goes in-line skating).

11. Include grandparents, other relatives, and friends whenever possible.

12. Emphasize the importance of having fun and learning; avoid a push "to win".

13. Get off the couch and change the channel manually -- or better yet, turn it off!

14. Spend as much time outdoors as possible.
