How a Mom Gets a Workout With Baby

Workout with baby!

Just a little video snippet of me attempting to exercise with my 9-month-old “helping!” He works great as a 20+ lb. weight for some of my exercises 🙂 (Now if you think it looks easy and he’s so well behaved…wait til the outtakes at the end.)

Getting it done! Kids are a reason to get healthy, not an excuse to skip exercise.
A few tips:
  • Keep plenty of toys out to keep baby busy.
  • Involve him in your workout – use as a weight for squats, lunges, deadlifts, etc.
  • Make it fun for him (for example, kisses with pushups). Play with him while you stretch on the floor.
  • Don’t be perfectionist about it. Expect interruptions and just go with the flow. Even if it’s broken up a bit, what matters is you’re being active!
  • My 5-year-old is actually more of an interruption, so he plays games on his Tab or does Cosmic Kids Yoga while I work out. But see if your older kid wants to join in!
