Weight Loss

‘Make the playground your gym!’ Mum loses 21kg and credits playing with her kids

If your partner’s not around, you don’t have to sign up to a gym with a creche or hire a babysitter in order to enjoy a workout.

Why not try getting active with your children instead? You can combine your exercise session and playtime. This mum knows what we’re talking about.


Mum loses 21kg and credits playing with her kids

Kaitie Purssell has lost 21kg following the 28 Day Weight Loss ChallengeWhat Kaitie loves about the Challenge is that you squeeze in fat-burning exercises WITHOUT having to slog it out at the gym for hours and hours.

The Challenge has taught her that you can get moving (and drop kilograms) just about anywhere – even while playing at the park with kids!

She says: “As a busy mum it can be hard to escape the kids to squeeze a workout in, but you really don’t need to ditch the kids to get it done.

“I try to involve my girls in my exercise routine wherever I can, it’s not always easy, but I know by doing so my excuses aren’t valid and I’m setting a good example for them too.”

Kaitie is here to share 4 ways of getting active and fit with the kids!

Over to you Kaitie!

Kaitie’s 4 ways of getting active with your kids

1. Get out of the house 


No matter how old your kids are, you should get out and get some fresh air if you can. You may be pushing a pram, a smart trike or chasing after bikes. No matter what, it will do the whole family some good having a nice brisk walk together.

2. Make the playground your gym!

I know my little ones love watching me trying to make it across the monkey bars, doing box jumping and up the steps and squats while pushing them on the swings.

3. Turn the iPads off


Go old school and play in the backyard. Turn the iPads and Netflix off from time to time. We do things like cartwheels, handstands, hopscotch and lay on the big trampoline together. It’s so much more fun!

4. DanceFit is my girls’ fave workout!


We crank up the music and get our crazy on!! Have you tried it yet?! It’s amazing!

DanceFit has both beginner and advanced workouts. You can find DanceFit under 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App exercise tab.
