Setting up a simple, fun family fitness challenge is the perfect way to get everyone in the household motivated to get healthy.

Hold a family meeting to kick off your family fitness challenge. Solicit everyone's ideas — little kids too! — for a goal to work toward. You might want to target healthy eating, increased physical activity, new strength goals, or less screen time. Spell out exactly what you're hoping to achieve and what you'll need to do to get there. (Need ideas for specific aims? Try this list of suggestions.)
