And because toddlers aren’t known for being the fastest eaters on the planet, the kitchen is the perfect place to fit in these moves from Sara Haley, Reebok Global Fitness Trainer.

    Love it! I started doing wall sits and tricep dips in the break room at work as I microwave left overs or lean cuisines for lunch. People give me strange looks when they walk in on me doing it, but I figure I should make the most of those minutes–especially when I spent most of my day sitting in front of a computer!
