Gyms with Childcare and Ways to Exercise with Kids

By:
Indoor ActivitiesResources for Families

The last two years have certainly made it difficult for parents to prioritize their own health. Many gyms are back to offering childcare for parents during their workouts; the list below includes local spots for you to join a HIIT class or hit the treadmill, then enjoy a long hot shower before picking up your kids from their childcare center. We’ve also included classes and activities to get you moving WITH your kids, including some of our team’s favorite ways to stay active. Moving your body is important for your physical and mental well-being, and it’s a great example for your children, too!

Being Active with Kids in the Winter

This year more than ever, it’s crucial to get out and about! These tips for dressing for winter play in Chicagoland will help you all bundle up safely for these activities to get everyone moving:

  • Ice skating: Ice skating uses muscles you may have forgotten you had! If you’re planning to visit an outdoor rink, be sure to call ahead or look on the website for more information on weather related closings.
  • Snow tubing and tobogganing: In addition to being a total blast, hitting the hill is also a great workout!
  • Sledding: Hiking up and down that sled hill is tough, so don’t skimp on the hot cocoa afterwards.
  • Skiing and snowboarding: An amazing full-body workout, and there are plenty of options within 1.5–3 hours from Chicago.
  • Go hiking in a forest preserve with your kids: Getting out in nature is so, so good for our kids and for us.

Get Exercise with Kids During the Warmer Months

There are so many activities that you can do with your kids that also get you moving!

On our team, at-home methods of keeping fit include online Pilates videos (through The Balanced Life with Robin Long, highly recommend!), Peloton, short workouts through the Athlete app, and following along with our kids during Cosmic Kids Yoga videos. There is also a new program called MOM-Minutes that leads you through mini-workouts throughout the day!
