Keep Moving During the Holidays

Keep moving the next few weeks with a little planning and active mindset. There are quite a few obstacles to fitness and movement during the holidays. Crazy schedules bump our exercise routine, home-bound kids throw a kink in your plans, dark evenings encourage hibernating and visiting relatives always involve lots of eating and sitting. Here are a few Burbank ideas to help you and your family avoid the couch from now until the new year.

Default to walking or biking
Consider using your body to get you where you need to go. 

* Bike or walk to downtown Burbank to ice-skate at The Rink (Dec 14 - Jan 7).

* During the school year, Saturdays are crazy busy. Use these slower Saturday mornings to walk down to the Farmer's Market with the kids. Try a fruit or vegetable you haven't seen before.

* Don't drive - walk to downtown to see a morning movie at the AMC.

*Stroll to Olive & Glenoaks to see the Burbank float the week after the Rose Parade.

Choose active over sedentary

* Take the relatives bowling at Pickwick Bowl.

* Drive to the beach in the winter. The cousins can play tag in the sand, get a volleyball game together or put their toes in the water.

* Take bikes or boards to the Burbank Skate Park.

* Splurge on a horseback ride for the group at the Equestrian Center.

This holiday season a little planning and an active mind-set can help you:

Stay Active, Keep Moving and
Enjoy Your Food
