Don’t have a gym membership? No problem! Get creative at home!
I struggle with the idea of getting a gym membership because I am a working momma. I feel guilty taking my kiddos with me to the gym to only be away from them for even longer. They are in school or daycare all day, so I try to spend time with them in the evenings, but I don’t want to sacrifice my workout time either. So, I have came up with some creative ways to workout at home and have fun!
Use your furniture: Chairs are great for working out. I use one of our dining room chairs for tricep dips, split leg squats, (watch video) step ups and more.
Use your kiddos as weights: If you can’t beat them join them. My girls are constantly running around me while working out. So I use them as weights. They think it’s the best thing in the world to hop on my back while I do squats. They are having fun, while you are working hard. Believe me, momma, your legs will be sore after this one!
