1. Jump Rope
Kids love jumping rope and it’s one of the best kid-friendly activities for you too! Jumping rope strengthens your heart and lungs, shrinks your waistline, and improves your endurance. Try to work up to five minutes and if you’re with kids, hold a contest to see who can go the longest to make things fun. You'll also get an even better workout this way, as long as you don't lose!
