It’s Fit Family Friday, kids are out of school for President’s Weekend. Kiana Jr. and I are in the Garage Gym creating a fun workout to do together.
It can be anything as long as we’re moving! Here is what we did:
To keep her interested and instead of doing traditional exercises which she doesn’t think are as “fun,” as I do, I have us take turns picking “moves” to do in the gym together.
Set the interval timer for 16 minutes, 1 minute action / 15 seconds rest
Each pick 2 “fun” movements or exercises
Each gets the gear ready we need for our exercises or activity
Take turns leading each activity
Mine: 1 minute around the driveway alternating between: jump rope running, lateral slides R/L
Kiana Jr.: take turns Swinging on the Kiana Flex Straps alternating standing and bent knee (was fun but actually challenging on the arms)
Mine: Island hopping: Put out obstacles: Blue Bosu, wobble boards, steps etc. you have to step or hop onto each one and cannot fall down or else you fall in hot lava.
Kiana Jr.: Crazy dancing while holding Fitness Bands for resistance! Play loud music! The sillier the better, but you have to move your entire body!
