The Morning Aerobics are a daily event in Animal Crossing, running from July 25th to August 31st. It is based on Rajio Taiso (ラジオ体操), a morning calisthenics program aired on the radio and television in Japan (Note that "Rajio Taiso" literally translates to "Radio Exercises").

On every morning between 6am to 7am (only on sunny days), Copper will conduct Morning Aerobics at the Wishing Well with four other villagers. Most of the time, villagers follow the moves that Copper do. If a villager misses a move, they will start to sweat and wobble.

Speak to Mayor Tortimer during this time to receive a special event card. Players should have their event card stamped every time they attend an event. If a player gets their card stamped at 14 morning aerobics sessions, Tortimer will reward them with a special Aerobics Radio that will enable the player to perform the exercises in their house. This event is also in the Sports Fair, however it take place between 9am to 11am instead.
