Why I chose to strength train. 

Every year for the last 3-4 years I’ve been doing the same 14 week strength training regime leading up to summer. I do this because by the time school is out for the kids, I’m energized and ready for our busy summer. Endurance is key when keeping up with small children. I’ve learned a lot about myself over the years and if there is one thing I know for it, it’s that my children need a mother that’s fit and ready to handle their very active lifestyle.

I have always tried to make sure the little ones are engaged in some sort physical activity. This is part of the reason my children are so hooked on being outdoors. Physical activity allows them the opportunity to run off some energy (not much, but some) and it keeps them away from the tv and all electronics.

So I take 14 weeks to prepare my body for 8 weeks of non stop going with the kids! Last summer I completely stopped working out once school was over and I plan on doing that again. A 2 month break will be much needed after spending 5 days a week in the gym for the next few months.

Family Fit Time: Disney Pixar’s Brave Workout

Happy Thursday! We’re almost there!! Which may or may not be a hint for our workout tomorrow 😉 ! Yesterday family fit time was all about the abs, today we are focusing on the legs! We want them toned and stronger than they currently are, so today we are doing a workout that’s a little more intense. “Brave” is an action-packed movie, so we need an action-packed workout to go right along with it!

If the workout becomes too intense, please feel free to modify these to suit your level.

Family Fit Time: Pixar’s Toy Story Workout

Happy Wednesday!! Are you making it through Spring Break okay? I hope you and the kids have been enjoying this week exercise challenges with our family fit time movie workouts. Remember the goal of the workouts this week are to not only build a healthy exercise routine but for your children to also build one as well. These workouts are a great way for you and your children to bond while watching movies and working out! I’m a firm believer in modeling great behavior for your children: if they see you exercising and enjoying yourself they will be more apt to do the same thing.

Toy Story is definitely one of those movies that I can watch over and over again with no problem!! The kids fell in love with this movie the very first time they saw it, which is why we love doing family workouts to this movie.

Family Fit Time today will be all about the abs!! We are focusing solely on our core and working those abs for this one! Get ready!

Family Fit Time: Disney’s Aladdin Workout

Happy Tuesday! We are on day three of our family fit time movie workout! Today it’s all about Aladdin! I hope you’ve enjoyed the past two workouts and I really hope your children have as well! Don’t worry if they lose interest somewhere during the movie, as long as they get in a little activity and your spending time with your babies that’s all that matters! This has become such a fun way to bond with the kids, I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to share with you all!

Aladdin is definitely one of my favorite movies! The upbeat tempo of the music and classic characters has made this an all-time favorite of many. Since I’ve always been partial to Disney Villians I must say Jafar is one of my absolute favorite Disney characters!! Family Fit Time, Family Movie Night, Disney, Aladdin Workout, Disney movie workout,

I know what you’re thinking: this isn’t a very long workout! Well the movie isn’t that long and to be honest this provides just enough get up and go for you. After running in place for “Friend Like Me” you’ll be thankful I made this one a little short!!

Don’t have the movie? Buy here and let the magic begin!  Don’t forget to follow me on facebook and instagram. Remember tag your photos #fitfotog #fitfotographer #familyfittime to share you and your little ones this week getting down and exercising!

Family Fit Time Movie Workout: Disney’s Little Mermaid Workout

Happy Spring Break!! We are back once again for Day o2 of our Family Fit Time Movie Workout. I’ve been working on completing these routines for the last few weeks with the kids and I’ve watched so many Disney movies it’s been hard to narrow down which five movies I intended to post on. Today I decided we could take it back with a Disney classic “The Little Mermaid”. Who doesn’t love this movie? It’s the perfect length compared to some of the newer Disney movies there are fewer songs, as my son says, he doesn’t have to workout as much.

While the limited number of songs is helpful for some, I still managed to sneak in a few extra categories to make up for the lack of singing in the movie! Trust me by the end you will be pumped and ready for another go round! Bonus: If your children can name all of Triton’s daughters allow them to skip one of the workouts below OR you can allow them to pick the next movie for your family movie night! Your choice!

One of my daughters’ favorite movies is Disney’s Tangled!! We watch this movie at least once a week and now that I’ve seen it so many times, I decided I needed to do something in order to keep from zoning out during the movie. I created this workout routine to complete while we watch! This particular Disney movie also has a lot of fast paced songs, so this workout definitely involved a lot of moves that will get the blood flowing and your heart pumping! As always remember to stretch before completing any workout! Don’t own the movie? Purchase here and let the magic begin!
