BRIDGEWATER, N.J., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Basketball All-Star Lisa Leslie and Chattem, Inc., the makers of Allegra, have created the "Allegra Outdoor Challenge," a series of fun and affordable workout tips to help inspire people to stay active outdoors during spring allergy season. At least 35 million people in the United States suffer from seasonal allergic rhinitis, often caused by triggers like pollen or ragweed. The pesky symptoms, such as sneezing and itchy, watery eyes, can often sideline people from their favorite outdoor activities but Allegra aims to show people there's no reason to suffer.
"As an athlete and a mom, there's nothing I enjoy more than getting outside to shoot hoops or run around with my kids, but when our allergy symptoms act up it can keep my whole family indoors," says Leslie. "I am thrilled to team up with Allegra and show families that with the help of Allegra their seasonal allergies don't have to stop them from enjoying the outdoors and having fun."
The "Allegra Outdoor Challenge" is designed to help families get active outdoors this spring and remind them that they can say farewell to disruptive allergy symptoms with effective, long lasting*, non-drowsy, allergy relief from over-the-counter Allegra products.From driveway drills to yard yoga, Leslie's tips utilize simple household items and a little imagination to transform any outdoor space in to a family fitness center.
- Yard Yoga: Grab beach towels and host yard yoga to encourage stretching, balance and focus. Using a basketball for support you can try modified push-ups leaning on the ball for balance.
- Jungle Gym: Playgrounds aren't just for kids; all you need is a swing set or park bench to inspire some creative workout moves. Hold on to a sturdy edge of a park bench and do leg-lifts or see who can hang from the monkey bars the longest.
- Scavenger Hike: Turn a family hike into a scavenger hunt; come up with a fun list of challenges like climbing over a log, finding a pinecone, skipping down an entire trail or racing to the birch tree and back.
- Driveway Drills: Using chalk and cardboard boxes you can create your own basketball court on the driveway. Have the kids draw free throw lines and see who can bounce or throw the ball into the cardboard box "hoop."
- Time for Fun: Use your kitchen timer or a stopwatch to time kids in sprints, relays and jumping jack sessions; record times on a dry erase board to help kids track their personal best times.
