Indoor Winter Exercises

kids articles

Don't let the cold weather keep you from staying in shape. Check out Kidzworld's indoor exercise activities for the winter.

Indoor Exercises - Video Games

Playing video games can actually be a good way to exercise - if you play the right ones. Playing a high-intensity game of DDR (Dance, Dance, Revolution) or some other dance game while using a step pad can be a great way to get exercise if the cold weather is keeping you inside. If you think DDR is super lame, well you can still get exercise by playing Play TV EA John Madden Football with a step pad and motion-sensored football, or SSX with a step snowboard.

Indoor Exercises - Dance Up a Storm

Throw on your fave playlist, crank up the volume and dance up a storm in your bedroom. Invite some friends over and have an indoor dance party. It's fun and is a great way to get some exercise.

Indoor Exercises - Circus Acts

The winter season is the perfect time to move your exercise routine indoors and start practicing some of your favorite circus tricks. Spinning a hula hoop, juggling or jumping rope (if you have high ceilings) are all fun and easy activities for you to try indoors. Just make sure you've got enough space and don't damage any of your parents' favorite furniture.

Indoor Exercises - Yoga and Pilates

Yoga and pilates are two indoor activities that are great for strengthening muscles, improving flexibility and lowering stress. They're also easy and inexpensive activities that you can do just about anywhere in your house.

Indoor Exercises - Clean House

Kidzworld doesn't really believe that volunteering for extra chores around the house is ever a good idea - but it can be a good way to get some indoor exercise. Cleaning up your room or helping your dad clean the house might not be that fun, but it could get you a raise in your allowance and keep you in shape at the same time.
