Seuss Workout

Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA and Alexandra Williams, MA

A Full-Body Workout based on Dr. Seuss Quotes

Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done! There are points to be scored. There are games to be won!

Whenever you work out, you score points. Whenever you have fun you win at life! The more you work out and the more fun you have, the better your life, right?!

We were inspired by our friend Carla, who is a very dedicated Seuss follower, to make this Seussical workout as a birthday gift to her. Why? Because…

If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.

In other words, time for squats, planks and some general “Cat in the Hat” house tomfoolery! We can only say that no furniture was harmed in the making of the cardio portion of this workout!

Squats: 10 Reps using Bar & Plates
Planks: Alternate sides and slowly drag arm/ leg back in.
Follow with heel rock-back plank and single-leg plank
Cardio: Walk, Jump, Flounce & Pounce for at least 15 minutes

My life is good. My life is fun. I wish this life for everyone (okay, Dr. Seuss didn’t really say this; I made it up).

What is your favorite Dr. Seuss quote? And what would your workout look like?

      Well, Tamara, I can happily share all my hair styling tips. It would take 2 seconds: Get hair keeper. Put head upside down. Secure most of hair on top. Wait patiently while child laughs at you, making the camera jiggle.
      Thanks for your kindness about the video & workout.

    Sometimes the Questions are complicated but the answers are simple or I like… Step with care and great tact And remember that life is a great balancing act. Love Dr. Seuss books!

    I always buy Oh, the Places You’ll Go for friends that graduate. Great book.

    Nice workout What great friends you are! My bday is in September. ;)

      What a great idea, Christine. My son leaves in a few weeks, so maybe I should get him that book. For your birthday, I imagine a big potful of oatmeal would be involved! Now that sounds fun!

    Super fun workout. I love it!

    My quote, “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

    I will admit that though I had the whole collection of Suess books when I was young, I couldn’t seem to get beyond Sam I am and Green eggs and ham, which didn’t seem appropriate for this vegan. So I googled it and now this is my favorite Dr. Suess quote.

      Well, Debbie, I used to find Cat in the Hat very stressful and didn’t like it as a kid. When I read it to my kids, I still found it stressful. I prefer others. And your quote is wonderful. I wish kids could keep those in their heads instead of all the stuff they’re sold by marketers.
