When you were a kid, fitness came easy! Kids are always jumping, running and skipping. Take note from your littles and bring out these classic games you played as a kid that are totally awesome workouts.
Jump RopeJumping rope can burn roughly 10 calories a minutes! Plus, it strengthens your legs, butt, shoulders and arms!!
HopscotchHopscotch will challenge your balance, work your legs and butt and torch an average of 170 calories in 30 minutes! Pull out the sidewalk chalk and go to town.
Tag You’re It!Tag will keep you running, twisting and jumping! As opposed to a steady state jog, running around during tag will keep your muscles guessing, for an interval style workout calorie burn.
Relay RacesIf you have younger children, include them in a little relay race! If your littles aren’t up for running, put them in a wagon or a toy car and push them to the finish line! When you get to each check point, perform ten reps of a classic move such as push-ups, burpees or squats! You’ll be surprised how sore every little muscle in your body will be after 30 minutes of relay races.
Make activity fun and easy just like when you were a kid and you’re sure to keep it up. Not to mention, when you include your children in a workout, they will encourage you to get it done each and every day!
