PLEASE tell me I am not the only one that utilizes those empty and amazing school playgrounds during the summer time! They are the best playgrounds around and they are perfect to bust out a workout while your kids play. WHICH IS WHY I wanted to bring you guys all new workouts specific for all those playgrounds you are taking your kids to! Okay, let me explain something first. When I do these playground workouts I am ALWAYS the only one at the playground, which is why I love the elementary schools! I know it’s hard to imagine a playground where you are the only one there but I promise you, it happens. Just drive around to the closest elementary school and I bet, 8 times out of 10, there will be no one there. Don’t get me wrong here, I love being social at the playground…ummmm sometimes…when I’m ready and my kids don’t look homeless…which is all the time…so…every once in a while I am prepared to socialize at the park but MOST of the time I just want to find somewhere my kids can go play for a bit so we don’t have to suffer in our home without AC. (yeah, I don’t want to talk about it) I guess what I am trying to say is this, why not kill two birds with one stone and workout while your kids play at the playground? If you are willing to drive around a bit, I bet you will find the PERFECT playground. It’s a foolproof plan. AND the best part…most of the workouts REQUIRE you to use your kids. So instead of you sitting on the bench on your phone not interacting with your kids, you are playing with them and gaining memories. Done and done.
I will be providing ONE playground workout every Monday for the next 6 weeks… yes, while we move!
I know I am crazy but I really want to share these with you all before the summer ends and you can’t use the awesome school playgrounds anymore.
You MIGHT just have to bear with me if the post comes on Tuesday instead of Monday…you’ve been warned.
