Just because it’s cold here in the midwest doesn’t mean you have to be sedentary. In fact, it probably means you really need to be out and moving, especially if you have kids. Cabin fever can lead to insanity. But…
What can you do in January, February and March to stay active as a family?
Well, I’m hear to let you know how our fit family stays active in the winter activities and maybe even share a few products with you!
Running/Strolling on the trail with BOB Stroller
Just because it’s chilly doesn’t mean we fully retreat indoors. BOB is still the stroller that helps all of us head out together. The Revolution Pro is my go-to and to make winter time bearable for the littles, don’t forget to get the weather shields. They are a life saver!
Time at the Y
E is really big into “racing” me lately so we head to the Y and race around the elevated track. I would love to tell you I beat him every time but turns out the little bugger is fast. So we actually can race. He loves tracking his winning steps on the Garmin Vivofit jr. We’ve had these since early December and he’s still LOVING it. You can see a full review here.
Yes, I said pool time. The Y is a great place for families. Ours has an indoor pool that we are CONSTANTLY taking advantage of. The kids love the water and I love watching them get more comfortable swimming. Speedo has everything they need to have fun and learn in the pool. With all the Ironman training I’ve been doing. I’ve set up a pretty good deal with them, they go to the Y kids club while I swim and when I’m done, I grab them and we swim together. Hey, you’ve gotta do what you gotta do! Here’s a tip…you don’t always have to be a member to use the amenities. Ask your local club if you can pay a per use fee.
From Pool to Snow, when winter hits, the kids are always so excited to play in the snow. We don’t get a ton of snow in St. Louis but if you do or if you’re lucky enough to head to the mountains, making sure you’re dressed appropriately is SUPER important! We trust Columbia to keep warm and dry.
So aside from maybe giving you a couple ideas of how to spend your winter time together, I also have the privilege of giving you a chance to win your family’s own BOB Stroller Revolution Pro as well as a Garmin Vivofit jr. for your little running buddy. So here’s how to enter:
