An ever increasing problem with kids is WAY too much time sitting! Whether that's watching Netflix, playing with their tablets, or chatting with each other online, there simply isn't enough activity! Gym classes in schools have greatly improved since I was a kid. But it still isn't enough. There are many hours in the week that could be filled with activity. It doesn't need to be strenuous or difficult. It is meant to be quick, challenging, and fun!
The workouts below have been designed for your kids to get back on track and start enjoying fitness once again from the convenience of the home environment. A happy head leads to a happy body, better attention span and overall, happier kids! So let's not waste another second, time to get the mind in gear...
20 MINUTE FULL BODY BLAST!
Perfect for at home or in the garden these 20-minute workouts work the whole body and help burn off the summer excess! It's tough but you need to push them through. Simply perform each exercise for 2 minutes without stopping (1 after the other) and go through it once more. It's great cardio for kids and fun at the same. For example, you can turn it into a game to see how many skips your child will get in two minutes and so on. Of course, if they need rest, take it! But the goal is to go non-stop.
