Mommy and Me Workout

Happy Friday!

Yesterday, one of my beautiful soon to be sister in laws, Jamie, and her baby, my nephew Cooper, came in to workout.

Cooper seriously loves the gym.

He sees it as one big playroom.  He is obsessed with balls and we have balls in every shape, size and color all around the gym.

The last time Jamie brought him in when she worked out, I carried him around as I coached so that she could workout undistracted. (Actually I grabbed him up and ran off with him before Jamie even had a chance to put him down….)

Today though she joined me during my workout with a group so I didn’t really have the chance to watch him.

And, of course, she couldn’t just put him down and allow him to crawl around because then he wouldn’t literally get into everything. And trust me…he is one fast bear crawler!

So because babies get into everything and Mommies need a chance to workout, here are some great Mommy and Me exercises demonstrated by the beautiful Jamie and Cooper! (I think Cooper had even more fun than Jamie did!)
