How does a mom keep their kids fit and active when the weather ain't so great outside? The secret is finding some videos that keep both your children and you moving.
After scouring YouTube for you, so you don't have to, I rounded up walking workout videos. Some videos weren't long enough. There were a few where I think the adult trainer forgot they had kids in the room. Most weren't long enough. Many had LOUDDDD music I couldn't hear what they were saying.
Annoying and distracting!
These videos I have for you looked easy to do and were fun to watch, too. The music choice was perfect.
Happy Work Outing! (I just made that word up.)

This looks and feels like playing a video game. The characters do the moves while a “mom voice” does the counts. The music is upbeat and fun without being annoying.
15 MIN KIDS / TEENAGERS HOME WORKOUT

What? A NO jumping at-home exercise workout?! Maybe there's a baby sleeping, or neighbors below you. This is great because it also means you hardly make any noise. The music is soft pop, keeping in the “quietly exercise” theme.
Moana | Get Moving With Disney Family

4K City Walks: Mannlichen Switzerland Mountains
Virtual Walk Walking Treadmill Video
Where did the kid videos go?! Honestly, sometimes you just want to walk in place. It has to be somewhere pretty and interesting, too, to keep my focus.
You did a great job at exercising that body! Now, how about marching or jogging in place while strolling through the Switzerland mountains?

Waikiki Walk Between Streets
What about a vacation in Waikiki, Hawaii? Luke takes a walk between the downtown streets of Kalakaua Ave & Kuhio Avenue. Can you just smell that ocean breeze?
This took me two whole hours to find these! I think it's enough to get you started on a great at-home family workout routine that every member can do, at any age.
By the way, this does count as Phys Ed in that homeschool portfolio. Just putting that out there.
