Exercising with kids!
Introducing my son, Georgie and my niece Sloane!
This week's workout shows how fun it is to exercise with children.
Allow it to offer you ideas for different moves, and then have fun creating your own!
You can even let your kids create the workout and lead the way!
A few tips:
1. Don't force it.
Let them know you are going to do a special workout, and start doing it with joy!
They will then want to join in!
2. Switch-up moves & involve thinking!
Use your imagination, include count downs, and other mental challenges
or discussions to keep their attention & focus.
3. Keep it short.
Have expectations that it will only last 5-10 minutes and be pleasantly surprised if they want more!
You can always throw a DANCE PARTY in at the end!
4. Play music they love!
Blast fun jams to keep up the energy!
5. Talk about it after!
Later on, ask what moves they loved and if they had fun! Create positive associations with exercise so they will look forward to it the next time!
Be sure to use your imagination, explore movement without ANY judgement, and simply HAVE FUN!
