Quick Fixx at the Park

By The DAHLC @dahlcsocialmedia
Going to the park is a great family activity. The kids are getting in their physical activity by climbing, swinging, sliding and jumping. Just because we're adults doesn't mean we can't do the same! If you want to get in your physical activity while at the park, try this High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout. It's quick yet effective. Start with a 5 minute warm up repeating jumping jacks, squats, forward lunges, and jogging in place. Then, perform these 5 moves with 10 second break between each move. Repeat up to 5 times with a 60 second break between rounds.  [...]
