As you all know, we love our at home workouts and we love to find new ways to spice them up!  Enter the BOSU Sport and BOSU Sport Kids Workout DVD. The BOSU Sport is perfect for your favorite tiny workout buddy!  My son had a blast following along for a short while, but I don’t think he’s quite ready for the full length workouts that are featured in the DVDs (he’s only 3.5 years old and the DVDs are for ages 6-12).

Ideally, we would have attempted more routines during the campaign, but we both kept sharing some nasty bugs and it made it difficult to schedule workouts in between dinner and bed time.  I am actually hopeful that we can work on putting together a few more workouts and videos, especially since I plan to work on sharing more Mommy and Me inspired workouts (keep an eye out for those, the BOSUs will make a comeback for sure!)

(**Note:  please do not use the BOSU without shoes!  We foolishly got eager this day and didn’t strap them on.  Shoes are a necessity while using the BOSU to prevent slipping or injury)

The DVD moves were quite a bit advanced for my little guy so we often improvised and did our own thing.  From planks, to jumps, to squats, he thoroughly enjoyed himself, but as you may have guessed he wasn’t always thrilled to workout with the BOSU (as seen below).

He’s three and he knows he has a reasonable amount of free-will.  I can’t force him to join me with every routine and that’s okay. I don’t ever plan to forcefully push my kiddo to do something he doesn’t want to do, but my positive influence does transfer onto him!

There were many times I would catch him copying movements he had seen me perform.  Like these BOSU tricep dips!  He was actually able to dip himself and push himself back up…ALL ON HIS OWN! (I supervised of course).  I look forward to finding new ways to incorporate the BOSU Sport and BOSU Balance trainer into our Mommy and Me routines.

As for me?  I think my favorite moves are a tossup!  I love the side lunges and squats, but I am also a huge fan of planks and core work.
