Here are some shocking numbers: Only one in three children is physically active every day, and less than 5% of adults get 30 minutes or more of exercise every day. Even worse, kids now spend more than seven hours every day in front of a screen.
If it sounds like we’re raising a nation of inactive, unhealthy people, you might be right.
As with most things, the key to positive change is building habits early. Get kids excited about sports and physical fitness, and they’re much more likely to grow into healthy, active adults. But if you are involved in those efforts, then you know how tough it can be. After all, you’re competing with video games and TV.
Baseball Trading Pins Get People Talking
Colorful, collectible and attention grabbing, baseball trading pins have long been a favorite for sports fans. With true-to-life depictions of mascots, spinning balls and even flashing lights, they instantly capture the imagination and get everyone fired up about the game.
You can create that same excitement about national sports and physical fitness month, just by distributing a variety of custom pins to your community.
Whether you’re offering fitness classes, a community-wide challenge, or a grass-roots effort to get moving, the added incentive of a clever custom pin is sure to get everyone involved. Consider creating a month-long challenge to encourage families to play in the park or take a bike tour around a local lake. Everyone who participates receives a pin to commemorate his or her efforts.
Or provide a new challenge every day, and a different pin to celebrate the accomplishment. By giving kids (and adults, too) a wide variety of activities to try, they’ll be more likely to find one they really love — and that they’ll stick with. The added incentive of collecting all the pins for the month will help keep them motivated.
Better Than A Billboard
Need to get the word out about your challenge? Create trading pins to announce your upcoming event and distribute them at local parades and sporting or school events. They’ll help build a buzz early on, and their clever designs will keep your upcoming activities on everyone’s mind.
Designing and ordering custom pins is easy and fast. Simply choose a vendor who offers custom artwork as part of the package. Be sure to ask about your options for color and other elements, because a truly eye-catching pin will help get people in the mood for fun. And finally, look for a supplier who can ship fast, so you don’t have to worry that your pins will arrive too late for the event.
Building a lifetime of healthy habits starts when you’re young, and National Sports & Physical Fitness Month is the perfect time to get kids excited about being active. Encourage them with a collection of colorful trading pins, and they’re much more likely to stick with their fitness goals for the month…and even beyond.
