Tips To Stay Fit With Young Kids

Starting a family brings amazing things to your life, but it may be harder to find time to stay fit and eat healthy. Here are some tips to stay on top of your health and fitness, while juggling the commitments of a young family:

Include the little ones in your exercise

Pram runs and other related exercise classes have been springing up in parks all over the world. You can now not only include your children in your fitness regime – they can become an active part of it. Pushing the pram uphill or around the park adds resistance and makes for a tough workout. Your kids will also get some fresh air, and they might even have a little nap while you’re at it!

Don’t be too structured, just play

As they get a little bit older, kids love to play. They want to run around, swing, jump and generally just burn off some energy. Let the kids take the lead and just play with them. Introduce them to different sports, or just take them to the park to run around. You could also join our Home Fitness Network which is full of fun exercise videos for kids, from gymnastics classes to ninja warrior sessions.

Don’t overdo it

You don’t want to wear yourself out if you’re already tired, overworked and haven’t had a proper night’s sleep. Make sure the goals you set are not too aggressive and that you are using fitness as a way to lead a healthier, happier life.
