FIVE WAYS TO MAKE HALLOWEEN FIT AND HEALTHY



TURN YOUR HALLOWEEN INTO A FITWEEK™ HALLOWEEN



Even if you’re not on the front-line, the candy, gum and treats for Halloween find a way of making it front and center.  So, instead of the guilt, stay fit and healthy with these five Halloween fitness tips from FITWEEK ™.

1.     Be the kid, go trick-or-treating.  Make it an event by going shopping with your friends for cool Halloween costumes, then chart a long walk in any neighborhood and have your own trick-or-treat event.   If you have kids, dress up with them and bring your friends along, expand the group and get some exercise.

2.     Find a pumpkin patch. Searching for the perfect plump pumpkin can be a fun and active event of lifting and turning. Look for pumpkin patches and orchards near you and make it an outing.

3.     Turn the trick-or-treating candy event into an exercising event.  In between trick-or-treaters, do the following exercises to tone and tighten your arms and legs:
a.     10 side leg lifts
b.     10 squats
c.      10 bicep curls
d.     10 tricep curls

4.     Have a taffy pull.  An old-fashioned taffy pull is both fun and demanding on the arms.  The taffy pulling part of making taffy is a great workout for biceps and triceps.  The best part: you can roll and wrap your taffy when you’re done and hand it out on Halloween as your own homemade candy treat.

5.     Go on a ghost tour. Many cities have spooky walking tours that will raise your spirits and perhaps others, too! Check out daily deal sites for special offers around this time of year.
