Park Workout – Week 4

July 15, 2019

10 Minute Quick Fix

Are your kids complaining that they’re bored yet? Well, take them outside for a wonderful adventure.  We are so fortunate to live in the Northwest where there are numerous hikes at Mt. St. Helen’s, Mt. Hood or along the gorge.  If you want to stay closer to home, Forest Park, Lewisville Park and the Lacamas/Round Lake area offers wonderful options for you and the kids to explore. One thing I’ve found with kids, is that if you can invite and involve their friends, they all enjoy the experience so much more!

We are so fortunate to live in a city full of so many wonderful parks…Marshall Center park, Esther Short, KlineLine Park, and so many more. Instead of just thinking of them as a wonderful place for kids to play and to walk the dog, think of them as a fitness gym with incredible views! There are literally so many things you can do at a park using nothing but your body weight or the bars in the kiddie section (just don’t hog the equipment from the kids). Monkey bars become chin-up bars.  Steps and benches are perfect for step ups, push-ups and dips. Kids ‘out of school’ doesn’t need to mean ‘out of shape’!
