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!

We’re almost there!! Which may or may not be a hint for our workout tomorrow 😉 ! Yesterday f;)!y 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.

Do you have any plans or are you planning a staycation this week? If your plans including staying home how about joining in our family fit time workouts this week? You may remember some time back I wrote this post on staying fit during family time. habits. Well, I’m back again with more moves for you and the little ones to do during your movie night. Family fit time does not have to be cliche or boring. The goal is to get yourself along with your children up and moving for just a few minutes a day. This is a great way for them to see you exhibiting healthy. This is a great way to get in those exercises while spending time together as a family!!
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!
Happy November! We are back once again for Day 2 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 to 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!

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!!
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!
Women’s Health and Family Fitness Day are dedicated to encouraging fitness for families and for women. Women’s Health and Fitness Day is 9/27 and Family Fitness Day is 9/24. It isn’t just about fitness, it’s about healthy lifestyle habits including eating right, exercise, sleep, stress and overall health.
According to research jump rope for a minimum of five minutes a day can improve physical fitness and when you build to ten minutes of nonstop jumping at 120 RPMs it can provide the same benefits as the following:
30 minutes of jogging
2 sets of tennis singles
30 minutes of racquet and handball playing
720 yards of swimming
18 holes of golf

Happy September! I hope everyone had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend! This past weekend I decided it would be a great idea to take the kids to Boston for a few days. This was a surprise trip, I just wanted to drive! I didn’t make any particular plans, it was just one of those weekends where I decided it would be nice to do something with the kids.
We started off our trip with a drive to Cape Cod! I had never visited when we lived here, so it was nice to take a day trip early in the morning before it got too crowded. We found a small private beach and walked for a while. It was perfect!
It’s so easy to focus on equipment for yourselves, but what about the kids?
Having an in-home gym in a small space can be done if you get creative. On one side of the room I have my barbells, medicine ball and bands and on the other side, my children have their very own setup!!
Benefits of having certain children’s exercise equipment
- They can be taught how to properly work out specific muscles
- Promotes overall daily health and wellness
- Regular Coordination development
It’s not necessary to have any equipment for your child. It’s always easier to send them outside, but if you have the ability, owning just a few pieces of equipment can help your child develop great habits and learn a little more about their body and how it works in the process.
Disney family movie night workouts you can enjoy today
Can you believe we still have 4 more weeks until school starts? This summer has been an absolute blast! The kids and I have enjoyed every minute of our time together and we still have more to go! If you’re still counting down the days until your kiddos return to school but recognize it’s entirely too hot to send them outside (we have 100 degree plus days here in August); then the exercises below are perfect for getting your child’s daily recommended amount of physical activity in without having to venture outside in the heat.
These Disney family movie night workouts are perfect for the family with kids that won’t sit still during the movie. Or maybe that’s just my two!
