A visit to the park can offer two things at once – active play for the kids and a workout for you. With a little creative imagination, the playground provides endless possibilities for fitness fun!
- The monkey bars, benches, swings, and even slides can be used to bring your workout to the next level, and mimic some of the equipment you would find in the gym.
- A park bench, despite its lack of padding, can be effective for box jumps, lunges and step ups.
- Use the slide for core and plank work, including easier positioning for tricep pushups.
- Bars are ideal for chin ups and lower ab work, like leg lifts. Add a personal challenge to see how long you can hang on!
