Family Fitness: Protect your home court.
We all like to have fun. What better way to enjoy yourself than with your family? The Grizzlies have designed the fitness portion of Healthy Home Court to provide the family with fun activities. Whether it is one of the Grizzlies block parties or one of the many Healthy Home Court events throughout the community, the Grizzlies are committed to helping families become more active together.
Physical activity and exercise have proven to:
- Reduce body weight and body fat
- Build and maintain healthy bones, muscles, and joints
- Reduce the risk of developing diabetes
- Reduce the risk of heart disease
Kellogg’s has partnered with the Grizzlies to provide Memphis with family oriented fitness events. The Grizzlies will be hosting these events throughout the NBA season to get the family out of the house and active together as a unit. Our goal is to encourage families to be healthy, in an entertaining way. We believe the family is paramount to helping build a healthier fan base and city, so we look forward to seeing you and your family at one of our Healthy Home Court events in the near future.
Get fit with your Memphis Grizzlies by participating in fitness chats with Grizzlies staff and by participating in Fitness Assemblies at your school or area non-profit organizations:
