Top 5 Easy Family Home Workouts You Should Try

There are many benefits of working out in the comfort of your own home. You no longer have to worry about hefty gym memberships or driving time, not to mention all the hassle that comes with heading off work early to go work out. Working out from home is also a great option if you have children. The following are top easy family home workouts:

1. Lazy River

This is a great workout for the whole family to do. Get started by putting some music on and doing some toe touches. Start by lying on your back and keeping your legs bent, then slowly bring your legs up to the sky. Next, hold onto a towel or exercise band above your head and slowly bring it down towards your chest. With your back and chest still pressed against the ground, begin moving up to a standing position. Remember to keep your core engaged throughout the whole workout.

2. Push-ups

A great exercise to do with children and also a great way to tone your arms and chest. Begin by standing straight and with your feet slightly apart and hands directly below your shoulders. Slowly lower yourself down until your chest touches the ground, at first you can lower yourself down slowly. Now begin to raise slowly until you are back in the starting position. Continue doing this exercise for a few minutes before moving on to the other moves.

3. Crunch

This is a great lower body workout and a great abs workout all in one! Begin by lying on your back with your arms out to your side, then slowly lift your shoulders. Next, lift from the tailbone and straighten out the legs. Lower back down to the starting position. Repeat this three times and then move on to the next move.

4. Rope Skipping

This is a great workout for the whole family to do. Begin by standing straight with your legs at a 90-degree angle. Next, jump up and touch the rope above your head. Then lower yourself back down, this time touching the rope below your feet. Continue doing this three times before moving on to the next move.

5. Burpees

This is another great abs workout that can be done anywhere, anytime! Begin by standing straight with your feet shoulder’s width apart. Drop down into a squatting position with your hands on the ground. Next, come up and jump straight in the air, then land back in a squatting position with hands on the ground. Repeat this for a few minutes before moving on to the other moves.


Some of these workouts can be tough, but that is what makes them effective. If you plan on participating in any of the above, you will greatly benefit from working out at home!
