Think Outside the Gym: On the Go Workouts for Moms- Stadiums

By: Erin Holtz

Are you a busy parent shuttling kids from piano lessons, soccer practice, football games, summer camps, or after school activities? As I Personal Train, I hear daily complaints of how moms (and dads) do not have the time to work out or eat healthy. It’s an ongoing problem now that our lives are getting busier with our children doing extra-curricular activities, sports, and lessons in the evenings and on the weekends.

Whether you are at football practice, the soccer stadium, the splash pad, or the playground there is always a way to fit in your workout. Of course, you don’t want to neglect watching your children, but if they are under a coach’s or instructor’s supervision then it should be safe enough to grab a few of your friends and do a quick workout.

Over the next few blog posts I will be showing you how to make the most of your time while being a taxi service for your kids. Start thinking about what you can use for your workout when you’re waiting on your kids to finish practice at a stadium. Most people only think of running stadium stairs, but there are many more exercises you can incorporate. Try using the stairs for tricep dips, elevated lunges, push-ups, planks, box jumps, and sprints. There are a million things you can do using stadium stairs, but these are a few of my favorites. Check out my quick stadium workout below or create your own.

When you are finished with your workout, throw on a hat, apply a few sprays of dry shampoo, and bring a dry shirt to put on so you can jump back into your busy schedule.
