Park hangs

Hello loves. So I don't know about you other moms out there, but if there is one thing my dudes love doing more than anything else...it is playing at the park. I think they might ask to "go to the park," on a daily basis. Climbing, cruising down slides, doing the monkey bars, playing ninja turtles, and hide and seek. These are the games that Brod and I witness day in and day out and I have grown to absolutely love watching the way my guys play and interact with each other! And wow their motors never seem to slow down!

So, I got thinking, with the amount of time we spend at the park, especially during summer evenings, I thought...why not incorporate some workouts and exercises that I can do while they boys are there playing? This is not my regular everyday workout, but has been something I do a couple of times a week and has helped me to enjoy my time at the park more thoroughly, and has helped me feel better than sitting on a bench the whole time.

First things first, I don't do my park workouts when the playground is crowded with kids, I make sure to wait for the times at the park that are more low-key and less crowded. Second, I try to keep my exercises and workouts at the park simple. Push-ups, pull-ups, leg lifts, sprints, body squats, lunges, and sit-ups are all part of what I like to mix in my park routine. I try to find a good mix of exercising and playing with the boys, sometimes I do more playing than working out and sometimes more working out than playing haha! The nice thing is whatever I end up doing more of that particular evening, I always make sure to snag my workout clothes at Kohl's. I know I have mentioned this before, but I absolutely love the selection, variety, and prices they have there. I am such a fan of Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas, and lucky for me, Kohl's carries a great variety of all three brands. For today's post and park workout, I went with the all black look (I do this a lot with active wear) and stayed with a Nike ensemble. I was able to find the shoes, shorts, and tank all at Kohl's and each of piece could be found at a fantastic price point. If you haven't had a chance to check out the activewear at Kohl's, do it! Like do it right now!!!

  1. It's so smart of you to use your time exercising while the kids play! And so considerate that you don't do it when it's crowded. Outdoor workouts are always better than indoor ones - they're so refreshing.

  2. You're very inspiring! I tri to workout while my son is playing at the park sometimes too, but most of the times I'm ending up playing with him because he's the only child. Love your gear!
