Working Out At Home : How to Stay Active During Quarantine


We are still trying to figure out the best way to continue with social distancing while keeping the same routines. We have gathered together some great websites/apps to help you to continue to work out at home. These are great if you are trying to keep a routine up, are just starting to want to work out, or are needing to have the kids get some energy out!

Working Out at Home : DIY Ideas

  • Gym Class- Have the kids do jumping jacks, run in place, use hula hoops, time them as run around the house (or distance outside) or do some basic stretching.
  • Set up an obstacle course with lots of jumping and crawling. Get outside if you can!
  • Make your own exercise deck of cards.
  • Have a dance party!
  • Run/walk while the kids bike or scooter around the neighborhood.
  • For adults, look up various body weight exercises and set a routine to do for 20-30 minutes. Some of my favorites are lunges, squats, burpees, leg lifts, crunches, step ups (use stairs in the house), plank, push ups and jumping jacks. Whew! Lots of things you can do without any extra equipment.

Even if you aren’t used to working out at home, these are great ways to break up the day, release some stress, and tire those kids out! Let us know how you are working out while staying home.
