As we continue to stay at home, many parents are on the lookout for ways to keep their kids active indoors. Exercise in the form of a fun dance workout, yoga session, or cardio class (when done safely, of course) is a great way for family members of all ages to motivate each other and get the daily physical activity they need.

Here are a few ways families can stay active at home, together:

Find family-friendly workouts

There are plenty of digital resources, including some available through Gympass, that offer kid-friendly workouts and exercise routines that involve the whole family. Check out how they can help keep your family active at home: 

  • NEOU, one of our Gympass Wellness partner apps, created their NEO Kids programming to help bring families together through exercise. They offer fun, safe workouts for kids ages 4 to 12. Parents can feel free to join in on the fun, too.
  • FitOn has workouts parents can do with kids at home, including a “Baby and Me” workout routine that features actress Gabrielle Union toning up while holding her daughter, Kaavia. You’ll feel the burn while getting some family bonding time in. You can also check out FitOn’s family meal planning tips on their site.
  • Ictiva, available only in Spanish, has a variety of home workouts for adults including yoga, Pilates, boxing, and HIIT. They also have special classes just for kids. 

Get creative and make it a family affair

Whether you’re looking to keep your kids active or trying to squeeze in a home workout on your own when you have children at home, one of the easiest ways for parents to exercise right now is to get the whole family involved. Try dancing together, setting up a home obstacle course, or following along with a kid-friendly workout video. You’ll get your hearts pumping while also spending quality time together.

Don’t forget about wellness

With so many recent changes to our daily lives, kids may struggle to manage stress and deal with the uncertainty we’re all facing. That’s why it’s important for people of all ages to understand the importance of taking care of your mental health. Gympass Wellness partner Wellness Coach has meditations made specifically for kids as well as guided sleep resources and bedtime stories.
