The Department of Health and Human Services recommends that children should get at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily. But if you have a teen, you know it can be a challenge to get them off of their phones, computers, video games, the list goes on
This holiday season, why not purchase a gift for your teen that will get them up and going? Check out these five ideas for gifts to ensure your teen is getting their recommended daily physical activity:
1.Extreme gift certificates. Extreme sports are extremely popular right now (pun intended). Whether it’s rock climbing, snowboarding, or surfing, you can encourage your teen to explore new sports with a gift certificate for a private lesson, a couple of ski lift tickets, or a few day passes to the local climbing gym.
2. Active video games. Video games might not sound like the best way to encourage activity, but there are some on the market that will really get your teen up and moving.
