If you’re a parent, you’ll know that it’s hard to help young children burn off their energy, so here’s an animal walk workout that you can do together…

Did you know that children between the ages of three and five years old need a total of three hours of active play per day?

Toddlers probably clock most of that exercise in the school playground, but now that we’re all stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be hard to ensure that little bodies get all the healthy movement they need.

There are online workouts, but many of the family workouts are more suited to older children with longer concentration spans and more advanced coordination.

A 10-minute family animal walk workout

Fortunately, personal trainer Denise Chiriboga of Strong Mom has designed a fun, 10-minute animal workout to appeal to kids.


While it’s not the same as running and playing outdoors with friends, this is a great quick workout to burn off energy, have fun as a family and give everyone a much-needed mood boost when you can’t get outdoors.
