The TL90x Extreme Workout for Parents of Toddlers

Tonight I invented/discovered a new workout to do with my kids. I am calling it the TL90x since it involves toddlers.

Required equipment:

  • Bouncy house with a slide
  • IKEA circus tent
  • One or more toddlers.


Stomp around chasing a toddler (two year old girl in my case) and shouting “I’m Sharptooth and I’m going to tickle you!”


Pick up previously mentioned toddler and swing her around saying “ONE! TWO! THREE!” and on the count of three, throw the toddler into a bouncy house. Do a flying leap into the bouncy house. Now jump up and down on the bouncy house until said toddler decides to go down the bouncy house slide. Jump down the slide head-first and do a dive-bomber pushup coming off the bottom. This entire paragraph describes one round of the TL90x workout.

Repeat this until the toddler gets tired of doing all this and then proceed to the cool down.


Go into an IKEA circus tent and pick up the toddler. Lift the toddler up until her head hits the top of the inside of the circus tent and say “BONK!” Put the toddler back down. Repeat until toddler decides to get out of the tent and see what any siblings are up to.
