Ep 122: 8 Ways to Exercise With Small Children at Home
One of my favorite exercise mantras is “something is better than nothing.” I adopted this phrase as my fitness motivation when I was trying and succeeding to stay physically fit and strong with babies and small children crawling all over me. As a mom with little ones, some days I was able to carve out a full hour of a hardcore work out and other days I just did what I could and moved on. So, fully understanding the challenges associated with trying to exercise while also having small children, I’m giving you 8 things that worked for me. Listen in.
1. Take walks.
2. Go to the gym before everyone wakes up or when someone else can watch the kids.
3. Use home video/streaming workouts.
4. Use home gym equipment.
5. Use the gym childcare.
6. Play them with outside.
7. Dance with your kids.
8. Use nap time (this is the last resort!)
