Being a parent brings amazing things to your life, but it may be harder to find time to stay fit and eat healthy. Here are some tips to stay on top of your health and fitness, while juggling the commitments of a young family:
Include the little ones in your exercise
Keeping the kids busy while you squeeze in a workout can be challenging, why not get them involved! Check out our Active Kids works out or our Ninja Parc workouts – work on your balance together or practice your handstands!
Pram runs and other related exercise classes have been springing up in parks all over the world. You can now not only include your children in your fitness regime – they can become an active part of it. Push the pram uphill or around the park adds resistance and makes for a tough workout, with the added benefit of not having to worry about childcare.
Don’t be too structured, just play
As they get a little bit older kids, love to play. They want to run around, swing, jump and generally just burn off some energy. Let the kids take the lead and just play with them. Introduce them to different sports, or just take them to the park to run around.
Don’t overdo it
You don’t want to wear yourself out if you’re already tired, overworked and haven’t had a proper night’s sleep. Make sure the goals you set are not too aggressive and that you are using fitness as a way to lead a healthier, happier life.
