Ways to Meet Your Fitness Goals (with Kids!) in the Western Suburbs

Maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle is something we all strive to teach our children. We sign our kids up for sports and make sure they get the physical exercise they need. When I think about what I do on a daily basis to achieve my own exercise goals, it leaves room for improvement. Time to exercise can sound like a mythical unicorn when you have babies and toddlers in tow.

We are here to help you reach your exercise goals this year! Here are ways you can exercise and make it a priority in your day. We have gyms and fitness studios with child care available, fitness classes you can bring your little ones to, and ways to be active with your kids! Explore our lists and come up with an exercise plan that works for your family. Don’t forget to comment below and share how you reach your exercise goals this year. You’ve got this!

Ways to Meet Your Exercise Goals (with Kids!) in the Western Suburbs

Being Active with Kids

We’ve got a full list of gyms with childcare and kid-friendly fitness classes below, but first: great activities to get you all moving together!

  • Indoor Swimming Pools: Family swim time is a great way to exercise and there are some local indoor pool options with open swim times. Click here for a complete list of indoor water parks in the Chicago area and here for a list of local pools with family swim times.
  • Trampoline Parks and Inflatables: Nothing gets your heart racing quite like jumping on a trampoline. Click here for a complete list of trampoline parks and inflatable play area. These places are not just for kids… you can jump with them!
  • Ice Skating: Skating can be a full body workout (especially if you have to help guide little ones along). Here is a list of indoor and outdoor ice rinks. If 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 reminds me of some of the toughest gym equipment. Running down the hill towing your little ones is a great exercise opportunity in the winter and great way to get some fresh air!
  • Skiing: One of the best full body workouts is skiing and there are some options within 1.5-3 hours from Chicago. Click here for a detailed list of locations.
  • Parent/Child and Mommy & Me Classes: Some of our fitness Mommy & Me classes focus on movement! Dancing, marching, jogging, and gymnastics is a great way to join in the fun with your child to be active.
  • Park District Open Gym: Many park districts offer open gym time including but not limited to gymnastics, basketball, volleyball or badminton. Check your local park district website for up to date calendars with open gym schedules.
  • At Home Exercise: If all else fails or it’s simply not possible to get out of the house, then get creative at home. You Tube has many kid friendly work out videos. We’ve rented family yoga videos from the library, my kids love. We even put on some music and dance or lead your kids in your own exercise or strength training.

It’s a lot easier to get out of the house and to the gym when you know there’s someone to watch your kiddos! These gyms and fitness studios all offer some form of childcare. Check with each location about rates, hours, and whether you’re required to book in advance.
