Workout Details

We are excited to share Fitness Blender's very first workout video for kids. This is a 25 minute routine that runs through three different games in order to help burn off extra energy and increase bone density, balance, endurance and even strength.

We know that a lot of the people that use Fitness Blender have little ones at home - many of you have even said that your kids as young as three have been doing some of our hardest HIIT routines right next to you! So we wanted to create something that you could do side by side. You will notice that some of the game themes (Red Light Green Light, "Jump or Drop" or When I say Jump) are actually ones that we have offered to you in our regular workout videos. We've just made them a little more kid friendly with less complex exercises and shorter intervals.

One of the most important things to realize with kids fitness is that it's okay to move at your own pace, and it's okay to adjust things in order to make them work best for you. Move as fast or as slow as you need to. It's also crucial that exercise is fun, whether you are 4 or 94, so that you are more likely to keep doing it.

Kids Workout Structure
We have three different games that last roughly 5 minutes apiece. A warm up and cool down is included. You aren't going to need any equipment for this routine.

Red Light Green Light - When we say "Red Light", stop whatever exercise you are doing and freeze. When we say "Green Light", go right back into the exercise.

Jump or Drop - We will be doing repetitions of a regular exercise, but when we say "Jump", you have to stop what you are doing and jump up as hard as you can. When we say "Drop", stop what you are doing and drop to the floor in a high plank as if you were going to do a push up.

Freestyle Round - Lexi & Mackenzie's choice of exercises.

This kids workout video is most appropriate for ages three and up - just remember to move along at your own pace.

We had two very special guests for this project; my cousins Alexis (age 10), and Mackenzie (age 4). They were brave and helpful enough to help us create this children's workout video and even helped build part of the routine. We had a lot of fun making this and if you guys like it, let us know and we can create another one like it in the future.

My children (ages 7, 5, 3) love this workout. It gives them a way to burn energy in the winter months. Can you make more?

Hello! My 2 sons and I have been doing this routine since the beginning of the year and have definitely felt the benefit. We live on a remote farm and my sons are home schooled, so we felt we needed to do something in break time to get us more physically active. As they are now 15 years and 12 years though I wondered if there was a "next step" we could take as they are both interested in doing another 15m-30m workout. Can you let me know if you have a suitable one? I have taken a look at a few but I felt some of them may be a bit over ambitious for them right now! Thanks, you are doing a wonderful job here!

Did this with my 4 year old daughter. It was fun :) Although she said she was tired after only 3 minutes, lol. So we need to practice a bit more.
It was a great stimulant for her to see the other children participate as well and I got to finish this workout in one go without interruptions.

I've been looking for a way to workout with my very active 3.5 year old daughter. Both of us had fun! Love seeing kids acting like real kids.

My 5 year old enjoyed the whole workout! I am excited about this because she is never interested in joining me for any other workout videos. Thanks for this and for your great website!! I have been doing your workouts for months and feel great. I love the vast selection, the search feature, the healthy perspective, and that you offer this for free! THANK YOU!!

Thanks so much for this workout. As the Canadian winter weather keeps us inside more these days, my kids (6 & 8) aren't as physically active as they need to be every day. This afternoon they did this workout and had a blast -- they were grinning the whole time. (They were also good and tired afterward!) We'd all love to see more of these!

LOVE this one! Brilliant idea to include kids. My 3-year-old lost interest after about 20 minutes, but she was happy to keep watching me do it because she liked seeing the kids on TV, so that works for me. Thanks a ton!

Ok.. It was a good idea to do a workout video with the kids, so i really wanted to do it with mine too, exercise/bonding time... It was a bit hard the game red light green light was good but after that my 4 year said this isnt fun my legs hurt... so we only lasted 15min.s and he is very active ...but i would definitely want to try another kid workout that is not so difficult even if its longer. Thanks for all your commitment to us and for the great help.
