Parent and Child Exercise

A big thank you to FIT4MOM for sponsoring this great list of fitness options so we can all get out there and exercise with our kids!

It is no secret that exercise can be beneficial to both mind and body but finding the time to exercise when you are a busy parent can be difficult. Many area fitness gyms to offer childcare, however some families are not interested in the long term commitment typically associated with gym memberships. We have scouted out some programs in the area that offer flexible schedules and pricing making it a little easier to find an exercise program that works for you and your family. Keep reading for parent and child workouts, prenatal classes and fitness classes with child care that don’t require a membership.
