"I walk three miles a day," Jessica Simpson told PopSugar. "Eric and I love taking the kids out for long walks in the neighborhood; chasing them around our yard is a workout all its own!" (You don't have to be a celebrity to relate to that one.)
Just browse through Hilaria Baldwin's Instagram feed and you'll get all kinds of ideas for how to incorporate your kids into your exercise regimen. The yoga instructor—who's expecting her third child with husband Alec Baldwin—loves to practice "Mo-ga" (that's mom yoga) with daughter Carmen, although the toddler isn't always thrilled about it: One hilarious video clip shows Carmen saying " "Yo quiero abrazarte!!!!!!" (translation: "I want to hug you") while her mami tries to do upward facing dog.
Jenna Dewan Tatum
Sure, husband Channing Tatum has one of the best bodies in Hollywood, but Jenna Dewan Tatum is inspired to stay fit by someone else in the family.

Victoria's Secret model Lily Aldridge's "favorite workout partner" is daughter Dixie. Know who else is in their #squad? Pal Taylor Swift. "Taylor and Dixie are best friends!" Aldridge, who's married to Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, told People . "She asks to go to Taylor's house every day and loves to go upstairs and play with her cats."
"I rely on real-life exercise. Carrying my son, for one. He weighs 35 pounds," Hilary Duff told Shape about son Luca for the magazine's April 2015 cover story. In one adorable Instagram snap, the duo looked like they were getting ready for a family circus routine. "Workin on the new act #LUCdusoleil," the Younger star wrote.
Spanish model-actress Elsa Pataky doesn't just go to the beach for sun and fun. It's an ideal spot for a family yoga class. "My boys enjoying the beach yoga with mami!" the mom of three (to twin sons Tristan and Sasha and daughter India with husband Chris Hemsworth) recently posted on Instagram with a super-cute snap.
Known for her ultra-early morning workouts (think 4:30 a.m.), Michelle Obama also gets the First Family involved in her Let's Move! efforts. "We enjoy biking as a family when we can," FLOTUS tweeted.
Whether stretching out for a yoga pose at home or hitting the beach for sun salutations, Gisele Bundchen includes her little yogis. "Good morning!

Juggling four kids and finding time to work out isn't an easy task, so Tori Spelling found a solution: Family exercise sessions. The brood has frequented Bas Rutten's Elite MMA Gym (which specializes in mixed-martial arts, jiu-jitsu, cardio training and more) in Westlake Village, California. "We all need to get out our aggression," Spelling joked to Us Weekly. "The kids take classes, the babies play on the mat and [husband] Dean [McDermott] and I do an adult training session."
