Fitness for the family: fun exercises for kids and parents

Feb 13th 2014 at 8:17 PM

When it comes to following through with your New Year fitness resolutions, there's no time like the present. You may have resolved to stay in shape but what about the rest of your family? We spoke with celebrity trainer Kathy Kaehler, who has worked with the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, and Kim Kardashian to learn more about fun exercises for kids and parents alike.

Kathy Kaehler may kick some of the best butts in Hollywood, but as a wife and mother she's realistic about the obstacles moms face when trying to stay in shape. "I know how difficult it can sometimes be to find time to go to the gym," Kathy says.
We found out why she believes the Wii Fit U can help, how she works out with her family, and her number one tip for moms who are trying to help their family get (and stay!) in shape.

Tell us why you've teamed up with Nintendo to showcase Wii Fit U.
Wii Fit U is something that works really well with families, because it has the feature of off-screen. Let's say mom wants to do yoga. She can do that in range of the console while the kids can watch what they want to watch. This is something that I think is a great piece to have in the home for role modeling, for influencing, and for really getting physical activity to be a part of the family.

What are your favorite games on the Wii Fit U?
I love the ab workout. There's a game called "Dessert Course" where you're walking on the balance board while trying to balance a tray of food. That's all about coordination.

Coming from a personal trainer end of things, what I like as well is that there is a guidance of what muscles are being used, and also a center of balance indicator. It's really showing you where you should be feeling it and your positioning which adds a little bit of accountability to it. Especially when you're working out at home, you want to make sure you're doing it properly.
