6 Ways to Train Whilst at Home with the Kids1. Get the Right Stroller / Pram
Invest in a jogging stroller pushing or pulling a stroller is an excellent work out. Have a break from the washing and find a good hill to go up and down.2. Put your baby on your back
If your baby is not yet ready for a stroller, put them on your back in a baby carrier (or front carrier). Adding 10kgs to your body when you go for a walk will increase the calories you burn, helping to get you back to your pre-baby body.3. Get the Kids Involved
If your kids are old enough, exercise together. Instead of taking the kids to the park and watching them play, go for a run or a rollerblade and have the kids bike next to you.
If you can’t get out of the house, create a circuit in the back yard. Grab a skipping rope; create a push up and sit up area and get the whole family to work through the stations.4. Join a “mums and bubs" exercise group
Personal trainers, gyms and Pilates studios are offering child care facilities whilst mothers train. Parent-baby yoga classes are also available, which gives you another chance to bond with your child.5. Watch the TV (not for soap operas) but for an exercise DVD
Clear the living room floor and put on Yoga, Pilates, low-impact aerobics, or kickboxing DVD.6. Prioritise
Make exercise a priority. Sit down with your partner and schedule in some you time. You may need to get up half an hour early and go for a run whilst your partner looks after the kids.
