What’s the best type of workout? It’s the one that you get while you don’t even realize you are working out! If you have kids, this is just as easily said as it is done. Children are constantly working out, building muscles, burning carbs, and doing cardio without even realizing it. So next time your kids are going to go play outside, get up off the couch and go join them for some exercise and family bonding.
If it’s the playground you are headed to, you’re in luck because a playground has tons of equipment that will get you toned and in shape. You can race your kid across the monkey bars to build some arm strength, or hang out on the jungle gym for a total core body workout. Brings some hula-hoops out there as well for good times and for burning calories.
Have a trampoline in the backyard? It doesn’t matter how old you are, trampolines are fun for everyone. All the jumping up and down that you and your youngin’ will do is a great for of cardio, and it will work on your core and leg muscles as well.
If you haven’t already done so, go out and get you and your kids each a pair of rollerblades. Rollerblading is not only fun, but it is a great workout as well, and you and your children will surely enjoy the quality time spent together during the activity.
So remember, if you have kids, working out is way easier than you probably once thought! You don’t need to spend hours in the gym every week, just head out with your little ones the next time they go out to play, because after all, playing is always the most fun and easy way to get some exercise.
