Children’s Fitness Academy; Gifts for under £10

Christmas needn’t be about spending loads of money and sitting down watching christmas movies all day. It can be about fun, fitness games too – for all the family! 

Why not buy a fitness gift for under £10 – you will be suprised at how much fun you can have and how much better you feel about eating all those mince pies! 

Here’s some cool ideas for you; 

Nike basketball £9.99. shoot some hoops or make a team and see who can keep hold of the ball for the longest. 

Skipping rope £9.99 from Sweaty Betty – put on some music and each take a turn to skip to the whole song. You can also count who does the most jumps without getting their feet caught. 

Pedometer – wrap up warm and go for a walk after dinner – a pedometer will count exactly how many steps you take – compare with the rest of your family when you get home. 

Speedo goggles – ok so you may not go for a swim on xmas day – but how about on Boxing day? 

Londsdale boxing gloves – great fun! Pair up and get someone to hold the pads – punch for two minutes, then run on the spot for 1 minute. Repeat five times to work your arms and heart – lovely! 

Fitness DVD – there are loads to choose from! Get the family involved and see who can keep up for the whole duration. Grannie and Grandad too!! Image
