Coming up on September 30th is National Family Health & Fitness Day, which we here at Sienna Hills love to promote! Family Health & Fitness Day comes around every year in September, just in time for the weather in Arizona to drop below 100, and as the weather cools down, it gets easier and easier to get outside and get active! It is even easier when you live in such a beautiful and active community, such as ours. Keep reading to get a few ideas of what you can do to celebrate this day with your family.
Take advantage of our fabulous pool and rec center while it’s still warm enough. Swimming is a great way to get exercise in, while also having fun. Play on the splash pad, organize pool games with the neighbors or simply just swim laps. There is an activity for all ages at the pool, so come on down.
Sienna Hills Community is located in the heart of the desert, which means tons of great hiking trails all around. Head out to Skyline National Park where there are 27 miles of trails for hiking, walking, biking or even horseback riding! Venture out a little farther from home to Buckeye Hills regional park or Woolsey Park Wilderness Area to find even more great hikes and sights to see. Make sure to bring lots of snacks and water though, as keeping hydrated and fueled is also an important part of Family Health and Fitness Day.
Along with our great pool, is all the great parks and sports areas in the community. Basketball, soccer, or just playing on the playground. The options are endless at our neighborhood parks. Invite the whole neighborhood out for a fun game of soccer to encourage everyone to get moving on this day.
We can’t wait to see everyone out and about with their families on Sept. 30th for Family Health & Fitness Day, even if it’s just for a short walk around the community. Staying active and teaching our kids good habits is so important for happy, healthy homes. How will you celebrate Family Health & Fitness Day?
