8 Fun and Effective Exercise Videos for Busy Moms

For moms, scheduling time to exercise can feel almost impossible. After all, how are you supposed to find time to work out when there are an endless number of things to do? Between for caring for children; household chores; medical appointments; commuting and all the demands of one's work life there seems very little time left in the day. Yet, most medical professions suggest a minimum of 10-30 minutes of physical activity each day. So what do you do?

Have no fear! We have an easy solution. We have tested and sweated along to these quick FREE Youtube exercise videos you can easily do from the comforts of home! A small space in your living room will do. Or you can try exercising in your children's play room. No weights? Then grab some soup cans. Just remember to fill up your water bottle which is key to weight loss. Always remember to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and have fun!
