Healthy Tip - March Madness

With so many exciting basketball teams in North Carolina, fans everywhere will be glued to the TV to watch the games. All that sitting can lead to snacking and weight gain, but with a little creativity you can still move without missing a second of the big game! Here are some ideas:

  • Watch the game while at the gym or on the treadmill. Kick up the intensity while the opposing team has the ball and hustle right along with your team.
  • During time outs and commercial breaks do sit-ups, lunges, pushups and jumping jacks to keep the energy going.
  • Hold a half-time challenge of your own and challenge fellow basketball fans to see how many baskets you can make in one minute.
