Staying Healthy and Active with Preschoolers

Posted on 01-10-2017

If you’re a parent of preschoolers, then you may feel like you’re constantly running around but never have time to stop and workout. How is a parent of kids supposed to stay active when the only running you have time to do is chasing toddlers? Here are three ideas to be active with kids in 2017.

Run around with your kids. If they’re outside playing chase, go and play with them! You can supervise and workout all at the same time. There are a great number of videos online that show how to get a workout on normal playground equipment. You can even try to cross those monkey bars if you’re feeling a little bit more ambitious.

Learn to dance. This is an exercise that kids can do too! Pull out a dance tutorial and start jammin’. Make sure you have plenty of room to kick it, and everyone can learn the moves together.

Invest in a jogger stroller. You may want to go running, but little Sally is going to get tired a lot quicker than you are. After a few minutes, put your little one in the stroller and keep going. You’ll get extra exercise by pushing the stroller and running at the same time.

Staying active with toddlers isn’t as difficult as it sounds. They’re already getting a lot of exercise on their own, so all you have to do is try and keep up with them! Supervise, exercise, and have fun with your kids.
