Yahoo Answer(s)
My wife and I both want to lose about 50 lbs each. We have two young boys that take up a good deal of our time, and by the time they are in bed (8pm Sun-Thurs, 9pm weekends) we are both pretty worn out and just want to sit down and watch TV or play games. We've tried exercising before...I built DDR pads for us to play on, we've bought a weight bench, we have various other odd things that we've tried, but we have problems staying with a program because it gets so darn boring. We'd like to find something more fun that we can do without having to have a babysitter over three times a week or spend a fortune on.

Answer: Making exercise a priority is a challenge for everyone. And for parents it can be especially difficult to find time to workout because of the full plates that they often juggle. When summer arrives the juggling act becomes even more tricky with kids home from school and involved in extracurricular activities. But, finding time for regular physical activity is so important that it should be a priority placed on your calendar, just like your kids’ softball game. A parent needs to exercise not only for themselves, but also for their kids benefit. It’s important to set a good example. If your children never see you engage in fitness or if they hear you complain about working out, then they are going to have a negative image of exercise. Let them know that you workout to stay healthy, to be strong and to have more energy and stamina (so you can keep up with them)! The big question is how to make it a priority that fits in your schedule. Well, it’s actually easier than you may think. With a little planning you can find ways to incorporate workouts into the time you spend with your children. Regardless of what age your children are, there’s a way to find time to workout (often even with your kids)! Here are some tips based on the age of your children. Age: Infant through pre-school Fit in exercise time while they are napping. Try a home exercise video, walking or jogging (if you have a treadmill), jumping rope. Occupy them for even 15 minutes with a video or toy while you do some toning exercises like squats and tricep dips. Grab your stroller and go for a brisk walk*. Or, buy a jogging stroller for more flexibility. With a jogging stroller you can walk faster, jog or even run at a fast pace. And, for veteran rollerbladers, you can even use the stroller for some skating time. For younger children, you can use a back carrier to transport them while walking. This can burn even more calories as the extra weight makes it more challenging. Turn on some music and dance together. Toddlers love dancing, especially when their parents joins in. Push your kid on a swing. And, after every push complete one squat. Use an infant carrier or bike trailer to enjoy a bike ride together. Age: Grade School Try rollerblading or skating together. Spend an afternoon at a park with a playground, but don’t spend the whole time relaxing on the sidelines – join in on the fun. Spend some time swinging to help workout your legs. Try making it across the monkey bars – even just once (it’s a great upper body workout and you’ll be amazed that your kid does it with such little ease). Try some pull-ups using a bar on the playset. Do some tricep dips on a nearby park bench. Play catch with a ball or get a small group together for a kickball or softball game. Make Saturdays family bike outing day. Involve your kids while you strength train. Let them count your reps out loud for you and/or clock your rest time in-between sets. For pool outings, don’t just spend time soaking up the sun. Walk back and forth in shallow water while your kids have fun splashing about. On rainy days that force you inside, walk or run up and down the stairs. You might even make it a contest to see who can finish 5 complete rounds first. Age: Teenagers Register for a fun run (or walk) event and spend time together training for the event. Purchase a family gym membership and workout together weekly. Play tennis or basketball together. Consider joining a community volleyball or softball team that includes enthusiasts of all ages. Don’t just sit and cheer your kids at their sporting events. Every few minutes do some walking or jumping jacks or squats. Implement a daily family walk each day before or after dinner. Work together in the yard raking leaves, planting flowers, trimming trees. So, with all the above recommendations, you no longer have the “I’m a parent – I don’t have time to workout” excuse. If you implement these activities for just 30 minutes three times per week, you can easily burn an extra 450 calories or more! Plus, working out sets a great example for your children that will teach them at an early age how important (and easy) it is to make physical fitness a part of daily life. Exercising with your kids also provides the extra bonus of spending quality time together. *For a complete stroller workout plan, visit: http://www.workoutsforyou.com/stroller_plan.htm

Me and my group are doing a presentation for the kids (K-2) at our local school. Its going to be about Healthy Living and Eating Healthy. We need some ideas on some exercises we can do with the kids that wont be over their heads. Im looking for some good opinions. We can not give the kids food such as candy for prizes.

Answer: Music and movement is a superior form of healthy exercise for young children. The songs are fun, engaging and very inviting for youngsters. A matter of fact, they have so much fun doing silly movement songs and dances that they don't even realize that this is actually exercise! The Learning Station specializes in creating songs specifically for your purpose. Their music is founded upon, "Healthy Music for a Child's Heart, Body & Mind!" As a PE Instructor I should now, and these tunes actually make my job a fun blast and the kids have rated me as the COOLEST PE TEACHER IN THE WORLD! This link goes to a YouTube video of a class doing one of my favorite songs, "Tony Chestnut". But there are 100's of videos on YouTube for this song. Check it out and see how much fun everyone is having. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Skp202GP1Pk This link is perfect for you. It goes to The Learning Station's FREE printable activity sheets. And there is one just for the song, "Tony Chestnut" with ALL of the movements. Check out each one because they all contain activities for exercise, dance, movement games and there are also HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS! And, if you find the pages you want to use, make sure you print out copies for the children to take home. Like the recipe for Healthy Snack Sushi. You will then be certain to be a total HIT! Make sure you check out the Physical Ed activities. The song, "Twelve Days of Gym Class" with the music from "12 Days of Christmas" is always a hit with all my age groups! http://learningstationmusic.com/printablehandouts.html This goes to their home page with videos too! http://learningstationmusic.com/index.html Plus all of this music can be downloaded at this site. Childhood obesity has tripled in 20 years. I applaud you for promoting a healthy lifestyle and sharing your time with youngsters in support of exercise and eating healthy. Keep up the wonderful work!
