Any suggestions for indoor exercise with kids? I have an 11 yo daughter and am looking for some good exercises to do with her. We can't afford the gym, and with the weather cooling off I'd like something to do inside. We are currently doing a Yoga DVD, but I would like to throw something else in too so she doesn't get bored. Are there any kid friendly DVD's out there that anyone can suggest?
Goals for 2018:
Do 20 consecutive push-ups
Use 10 lb. weights for a whole workout
Run 1 mile without stopping DONE!!
Run 2 miles without stopping
Cut running time down 10 seconds
Get stronger physically and mentally

How about going swimming once a week. Do you have a wii or ps3 as they do exercise programs which can be competitive and at the end of the day anything that just gets you moving is good.

I do Zumba, the DVD. It's quite fun and definately gets my heart beating. Your daughter will enjoy it and your core will feel great afterwards Smile
