Gyms with Childcare, Stroller Workouts, and More to Keep You Moving in 2020

A gym membership with childcare has completely changed my workout routine — as in, I now have one! Of course, some days I drop my kids off and slump into an armchair with a magazine for the first hour. Or shower. (Hey, self-care is self-care.)

But a gym membership isn’t the only way to work out with kids. Parent/child fitness classes, active outings, and more can help the whole family keep moving. For example, on our team, Annie plays tennis to stay active. Jill B. does online Pilates videos (through The Balanced Life with Robin Long), and her tween girls often join in! Meanwhile, Jill K.’s 6-year-old can keep up while she does the T-25 DVDs.

Being Active with Kids

Being active together is great for your kids, too. These activities get everyone moving:

  • Indoor Swimming Pools: Dive in together with these local family swim times.
  • Trampoline Parks and Inflatables: Nothing gets your heart racing quite like jumping on a trampoline, especially if you’re trying to keep up with your kids!
  • 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.
  • 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 options within 1.5–3 hours from Chicago.
  • Best Forest Preserve Trails for Kids: Getting out in nature is so, so good for our kids and for us.
  • Park District Open Gym: Many park districts offer open gym time for gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, or badminton. Check your local guide.
  • At-home exercise: Get creative at home, too. YouTube has many kid-friendly work out videos. Kidlist Contributor Nicole rents yoga videos from the library that her kids love.
