Ways For Busy Moms To Stay Fit
Having two toddlers makes it nearly impossible for me to find the time to make it to the gym. Before our second child I was able to make it at least two times a week, but now it’s been pretty non-existent. However, there are many ways to exercise that don’t require a gym membership or a babysitter. If there’s a will, there’s a way! I love the idea of getting my kids involved in exercising, especially at an early age so they can recognize how good it is for them.
One way for me to stay motivated and stick to a regular workout routine, is by having the right clothes that make me feel confident when I work out. I’m in love with the new line of Champion GEAR available exclusively at Sports Authority. The Champion GEAR apparel line features exclusive seamless technology, high tech, luxury feel at a great value: “Seamless comfort. Pure Performance.”
The line is available in a variety of colors and styles, my favorites are the bright colored seamless tops and the Marathon Printed Running Knee Tights. They keep me cool and confident with Champion GEAR’s Moisture Wicking Fabrics that are quick drying. The tights even have a convenient pocket on the back of them large enough to fit your phone.
Invite your children – Do you some outdoor activities in your yard like yard work, the younger kids love helping with this. Or plan some fun active activities with the family like going to the pool, biking, or hiking at the park.
Stroller workouts – This is the easiest way to exercise with your kids. They stay easily entertained for a majority of the time so you’re able to able to go for some pretty long walks/hikes/or jogs.
Playground workouts – One of my kids favorite ways to workout with me is by going to the playground. You can turn the jungle gyms into your own personal gym.
– Step up and down on the stairs, like you would a stair-stepper.
– Hang from the high bar and work on pull ups.
– Use a park bench and place your hands on the step, face away from it and perform triceps dips.
– Slide Lunges by bending the left leg backwards in a lunge position and rest the left foot on the slide with the hands on the hips. Bend the right knee until the thigh is parallel to the ground, and then press through the right heel to rise back up.
Circuit Workout – Make your own and do it in the house, yard, or driveway with kids.
Obstacle Course – Make one in the comfort of your own home using your furniture.
Family Bike Ride – If you have younger ones you can put them in the a trailer for behind the bike.
