Fifth Day of Fitness

Welcome to the 5th Day of Fitness!  Are you having fun with the activities?  Are you sharing the activities with family members and friends?  Remember these are great to do with children!

On the Fifth Day of Fitness, the coalition gave to me:

5 jumping ropes (no jump rope, no worries, use an imaginary rope!)
4 muscle poses
3 hula hoops (no hula hoop, just go through the motions!)
2 scissors (feet apart then cross in front, feet apart then cross in back)
and a Partridge in a Yoga Tree-hold a yoga pose
