For the parents out there, how do you incoporate your child into your fitness routine? Other than walking with a stroller?

Make up games. Like a course. Play chase. Do 'simon says' incorporating jumping jacks,up &down,fast feet,etc.

I'm not a parent but this worked for me . My parents used to do it with me you should find a type of food they like or anything they like to do an tell them that if they finish a walk or a certain thing they can get it and with time they will start doing it without giving them anything .

Depending on the age, when mine were babies i would physically use them as my weight. Doing squats with them in the car seat. As they grew,lifting them up over my head in repetition, doing piggy back squats and lunges. Doing crunches with them sitting on your stomach,or on your back doing push ups. Mine are 3&4 now, so i have them do mini workouts like mine. They use water bottles as their weights. Hope that helps

When mine were that young, i hiked with them in a frame pack just for little ones. We would go an hour or more in the hills. They loved the ride and i trained with 20 even 30 pounds in the pack, and we did steep climbs. As they got older  we did family hikes and now family cycling. And yes they do modified kid workouts along with me when i use skimble!
