Carmel Firefighter and personal trainer Tim Griffin says you can still work out at home while taking care of your young child. Tim brings along his baby daughter for some exercises you can try with your little one.
The big key for me with my kids and wanting them to exercise is whenever we go to the park and we do things, we try to exercise. I want them to see when I’m having fun, I want them to incorporate fun with exercise.”
