How to Work Kiddos Into Your Workouts

As a college student trying to ball on a budget, I often nanny for this great family near where I live.  I’ve been doing it for over a year now, and the two little girls (A and M) are great.  Normally, as most people who know me know, I’m not typically a huge “kids” girl, but these girls are really sweet and they listen really well.

The last couple times I’ve nannied for this family, it’s been in the middle of my journey to get fit.  Because of the way my schedule worked out today, I have to nanny until 3:30 and then I work at 4, leaving no time in-between for the gym.

So instead of going to the gym, I brought the gym to me and to the girls I nanny.  At first they were like, “No, RanDee, this is stupid.”  But trust me, they’ll have fun and it’s a great way to include them.

Today we started with a little bit of yoga for stretching, then we moved on to wall sits, squats, and lunges.  The girls had a blast climbing around and they made my workout extra difficult.

This goes as a reminder that, no matter what you’re doing, there are definitely ways to work in workouts (<– see what I did there?).  Below are a few photos I took during the workout, just in case you’d like some ideas for you and your own kiddos, or maybe the kiddos you nanny for.

Anyways, I am still nannying currently and have a dance party to attend.  As always, have a fabulous and fit day.

  1. This is fabulous. I remember being frustrated in my workouts by little boys trying to join in. Wish I’d had the patience to include them! Good for you!
