LONDON, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

We all know during the winter months exercise and healthy eating can take a step back. The nights are longer and it's colder - all you want to do is snuggle up inside, in front of the fire and eat warm, comforting foods. However, summer has now arrived and we are even having some warm and sunny days so it's time to get active and get fit!

In a bid to help the nation, Sports Direct are giving away fantastic sports sets and games throughout summer so you and your family can get out and get sporty - whether you're into tennis, cricket, golf or football there will be something for everyone.

It is much easier to get motivated and kick-start a healthy routine when the sun is out - salads become more appealing and you want to be outside basking in the sunshine rather than being stuck indoors. So instead of just sitting outside why not get the whole family involved and play a game of rounders, cricket or even just bat and ball?

The common misconception is that you have to be a gym maniac in order to be fit, however this is not the case. By playing a family sport either in your back garden, down at your local park or even hiring a court at your local leisure centre you can improve your fitness levels, health and you'll feel much happier for it!

Being more active can also be fun, especially if the whole family is on board. You could make up your own games with the sports equipment you already have and encourage friendly competitions for a bit more excitement.

So round up the troops, pick a sport (or several) and make this your summer of sport. Let us know on Twitter and Instagram using #summerofsportsdirect, or on Facebook, what sports you and your family are taking up this summer and how you will be keeping active.

To be in with a chance to win make sure you stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages where the competitions will be posted.

Best of luck!
