When it comes to working out, it can be nice to find time for your whole family to get involved. Not only will your little ones be able to get their wiggles out, but you will get that much-needed self-care time scheduled into your busy day. Here is the best home workout equipment that your whole family can use to make this time of day something to look forward to!
We adore the yoga mat. It is affordable, versatile, and can be used at any age. Yes, any age. While you might look at this mat as a place to go and gain some time in self-introspection and self-compassion, you can use this piece of equipment for more than just yoga and mindfulness—yoga, pilates, pushups, squats, planks, and more can all be done here. Plus, it is a piece that says, “your workout is here.” So, if you have a little one who wants to crawl over to your space, you could make it a game for them to stay on their mat or try some balancing without having their toes hit the floor beside it. There are plenty of yoga poses that your whole family will enjoy, too.
Jump ropes are just plain fun. For you, for us, and your little ones. Plus, they are quite the calorie-blaster. According to Calories Burned HQ, jumping rope can burn a whopping 15-20 calories per minute. Yeah, we are sweating too. And your family, from 1st-grade on, can join in on the fun. You can switch it up by doing a normal jump, skipping, double-jumping, and a ton of other fun family workout routines. It will never get boring (or too easy). Did we mention you can take your rope anywhere?
Staying on the jump train. A trampoline is a fun way to stay active with the entire family. It’s funny to think that lots of our favorite childhood pastimes can follow us our whole lives and become some of our best workouts. So, as your kid is jumping and bouncing on the trampoline, you can work on toning your body through circuit training. Like a jump rope, there are tons of options to enjoy, and these workouts are incredibly fun to do! We think a trampoline is a wonderful piece of home workout equipment for kids, teens, and beyond.
Running, hiking, walking, pushups, squats, burpees, oh my! All of these things have one thing in common, and that is they only take y-o-u. So, as you think about your whole family’s health, why not opt for something with no-equipment needed? We have an extensive collection of bodyweight workouts on our blog and on iChuze Fitness that can help you create a healthy, active time with your whole family.
