It is almost that time of year, when we can start heading outdoors everyday to enjoy the fresh air (although today when woke up it was only 14 degrees out). While we dream of warmer days, try this Fresh Air Fitness routine from the Spring Packet. Practice it indoors until you can bring the kids outdoors to perform this short work out. This activity makes a wonderful brain break for during the school day, pre-homework exercise to get the brain ready to work or just some plain, old aerobic fitness that requires no equipment.
