These two live for exercise time!
They love to get up and get moving so much that we often have impromptu workouts at places where there is no equipment available… but that never stops them from getting a workout in! They spend at least an hour a day having fun and being active.
With all the traveling we have been doing the girls have been planning workout routines to do together and I asked them to make a special one to share today!
The girls put together 10 of their favorite exercises that can be done anywhere with no equipment needed!
1. Air squats.
They seem to be the ones they always start their workouts with because they are great for stretching! Plus the little one thinks they are fun to do and always tries to walk while doing them!
Another favorite that is always one of the first ones they do. They switch legs back and forth in small areas and when they have more room they do walking lunches, where they walk into them using each leg.
A Yoga Ball Chair is the next addition you will want to make for your kids at home fun. Use it instead of a chair when doing schoolwork for better attention spans!
The little one becomes the weight! They tend to use whatever is lying around as their weights. Even each other!
If you don’t already have these-Slip-On Memory Foam Sneakers you need them. They are super cheap and the comfiest ever made!
4. Single leg jumps.
They jump on one leg into the air in sets of 10 and then switch legs.
5. Sprints or jogging in place.
This might be the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. Inflatable Bubble Balls that you can buy for the kids to play with!
Lower yourself to the ground into a lower push up position and then jump your feet to your hands and then straight up into the air.
This Arcade Basketball Game Set is also what kids dream about and it is inexpensive which makes it even better!
7. Sky Jumps. Touch the ground and then jump straight up! We upped this by adding these Stepping Stones. We have them set up in our hallway and our youngest loves “walking over the lava” using these steps!
8. Push-ups. These traditional exercises are still an awesome exercise.
Did you know you can actually buy this Inflatable Castle Bounce House?
9. Jumping jacks. Still, a favorite for kids to do! If you are looking to add to your in-house active toys, this Hover Soccer Ball would be perfect!
10. Sit-ups. These girls can do sit-ups like professionals! These are especially great because they can be done inside the house. The weather doesn’t stop them from keeping their bodies healthy.
They also love playing with a 4-in-1 Multi-Game Table and I love that it is budget-friendly and keeps them having fun for hours!
Staying active and exercising is them doing good for their bodies.

I love this kids fitness post and the pictures are fantastic. I’ve heard that chocolate milk is a great recovery drink for athletes and kids love it so this is perfect.
Wow! I didn’t realize that chocolate milk was a recovery drink! I figured everyone drank either Gatorade or Powerade or just plain water. Thanks!
I remember growing up that we didn’t have all the fancy exercise equipment that they do today. We did exercises like these to help stay fit! Glad to see that you are keeping them alive!
These are some great fitness ideas! TruMoo sounds like the perfect beverage to stay replenished!
My kids love to run, bike, play soccer or basketball. They LOVE being active. These are some great ideas also- thanks for sharing!
Great activities. Perfect for kids.
To get my kids some exercise, I take them for walks. The fresh air does a body good.
Those are great ideas. Simple ideas are the best and affordable too
Kiddo loves skating and riding her bike. She also enjoys a good walk when she’s in the mood. I’d like to get her into yoga and help her find her center, calm down and focus a bit. With everything going on in her life between her parents she has a hard time.
I find that a lot of kids like skating or riding their bike! What a good way to get outside and get some fresh air.
These are great kid activities! My kids love doing whatever exercises I am doing when I workout in the basement. And chocolate milk is an awesome recovery drink!
I love that! This is great, its so important to get the kids out side and working out. No need to buy anything either. So many people go out to buy stuff. A little motivation and some fun thrown into it everyone will have fun
Looks like the kidos had fun! What a beautiful day you had!
My kids love to just run. And they do a lot of tumbling exercises since they are in cheer
Great ideas! I think its awesome to get the kids involved in healthy activities like exercise and especially if it’s fun!
I love seeing active kids! It’s so important to have fun moving and playing. My girls were runners when they were younger.
My daughter used to love going outside and staying until it got dark! She would ride her bike, play soccer, or just run around!
Good tips. Fitness for kids is so important. We walk a lot as a family!
Great fitness tips. I love getting outside with my kids. My son plays baseball and my daughter plays softball and runs with me. We all enjoy hiking and spending time outdoors together. Chocolate milk is our favorite drink, and now we have even more reason to enjoy it! Recovery! 🙂
All these sounds like great fitness ideas for kids. The pictures are really awesome. I am sure kids would definitely enjoy this kind of fitness activities. TruMoo Milk is one of my girls favorite drink too.
How great that your kids love to exercise together! We try to get the kids outdoors as much as we can and play tag or fly kites and such. Lots of family activities we can all do together.
My kids have become more interested in working out. These ideas are great! This is a great way to burn off a lot of energy too.
These are some great ideas! Sometimes it’s so difficult to get kids to be active – especially with all the screen time these days!
These are some great ideas!!! It’s so important to keep kids fit by keeping them active 🙂
My son does those exercises during soccer practices. And he loves TruMoo chocolate milk. I love it too.
My son’s favorite way of incorporating exercise is going on hikes. Sometimes, he’ll join on his accord when I’m working to one of my favorite exercise DVDs.
This is awesome! What a great way to get kids up and moving!
These are some great exercises for kids! And we love TruMoo too!
It is good to keep the kids active! I love this!
Wow. You kids really enjoyed it. The Burpees is my favorite, I used to teach my kids about Calories in versus Calories out.
I hate burpees!!! LOL, however what a view when they’re doing all that exercise.
Only kids are innocent enough to find burpees fun, lol! We love to put on some music and have a dance party in our living room!
I love that you posted this! There are so many exercises that kids can do and would enjoy.
These are awesome ideas! Gotta get kids up and moving. We love our chocolate milk too.
My daughter will gladly do these exercises if she could drink TruMoo Chocolate Milk after.
They looks so cute exercising together. I don’t think we’ve tried Trumoo yet. I bet my family would love it.
These are indeed fun and kids would enjoy these as well. Love the list!
My girls love to exercise together too! Tru Moo has great flavor and we always have in the house.
What an amazing view for exercising!
