Denise Austin is a fitness industry pioneer who has sold more than 24 million exercise videos and DVDs, authored 12 books on fitness and starred in the longest-running fitness show in the history of television. Her trademark zest for life, positive outlook and can-do attitude have earned her the reputation of “America’s favorite fitness expert”.

The Balancing Act sat down with Denise to get some advice on finding the time to keep the whole family active:

Tap into specific interests – whether you enjoy yoga, dance or sport-specific conditioning, there’s something for everyone. And a little friendly competition doesn’t hurt either. See who can speed walk or run the fastest from point A to point B, or try a game of volleyball at the park, the beach or even your own backyard. As long as the activity is fun, getting everyone moving will be a snap!”
