Fun EXERCISE Videos To Do With KIDS
Updated: Mar 11
Whether you're practicing social distancing or it's just a rainy day, these fun free workout videos recommended by family fitness experts are a great way to blow off steam inside! By having your kids work out with you, you are not only helping yourself, but their health and well-being as well. Physical activity can increase our moods, boost our immune systems, and give parents that extra energy you need to care for you little ones.
Getting your children involved in your workouts not only helps keep their bodies healthy, but it can help combat depression, help with motor skills, and my favorite thing is that it's a great way to bond as a family.
"Exercise is a powerful mood-booster, it generates play and silliness for everyone and if you can shift your expectations from it being about your own deep workout time, to a family activity, where everyone gets to move and release pent up energy, you'll find that it is really fun and often a bonding experience for the whole family,"
- Rachel Welch, yoga instructor and founder of Revolution Motherhood in New York City.
