The total-body workout you can do with your baby

Planning gym time around a weird work schedule is challenging. Overcoming the hurdles of working out at home is difficult. And once you welcome a baby into the equation, preventing your hard-earned physique from becoming a bona fide "dad bod" is virtually impossible.

But consider this: Even if you skip the gym, you can get a great workout in the comfort of your living room with one versatile weight—your child.

“Creativity is the key to keeping this fun," says Paul Tremblay, a Reebok trainer and owner of CrossFit NCR. "The at-home, father-child workout puts that creative spin on the norm."

Plus, doing a workout at home with your son or daughter is the perfect way to break a sweat, tire out your kid, and avoid the crappy workout DVDs you've been holding onto since 2005.
