Hi Everyone!

Post Workout

This workout was so much fun for me! I got to workout with my sister and my niece, Olivia. Olivia is 3 1/2 months old, and I think she really enjoyed workout time. She loved the attention and warmth, and by the end she was sound asleep. 

As a new mom my sister, Jessica, has found it tough to fit in workouts. This is a fun workout that she can do with the baby, or go through with body weight only. When you have little ones it’s important to get creative. 

My mom worked out with me when I was little, and I think it left a very positive imprint on my life. I remember “riding” on her feet when she did leg raises. I was having fun spending time with my mom, and she was getting in a great ab workout. My dad used to do pushups with me and my sisters sitting on his back, and we loved it! When you workout with your child you can begin building a healthy legacy that they will carry with them into their lives. 

I hope you enjoy this workout. If you don’t have a baby you can start out with body weight or use dumbbells or kettle bells to increase the intensity. 

Have fun!
Melissa

    Gah, the cuteness! I already did my workout, but found this one when I was looking for a cool down. I just had to watch this while stretching, helplessly hypnotized by the cuteness!
