Buckle Up for 30 Minutes: Your Half Hour Workout With A Friend Or A Group

WORKING OUTBuckle up your little bundle and head out to a park or around your neighborhood.

If you live in an area where it is too cold or wet to enjoy the outdoors, then head to a local mall. Mall space opens about an hour before the actual shops do, so you can have the entire space practically to yourself!

Warm Up:

Walk or Jog for 5 minutes talking as you go.
