If you are not familiar with it, TABATA is 4 minutes of 8 rounds of exercises: 20 seconds on, 10 seconds rest. I recently came across TABATA WOD (coach) on Spotify and feel compelled to share. I suggested to a couple of clients that it was a great way to get their children moving but I cant imagine this would work with teens!).

Choose one of the tunes and the coach countdown begins. I suggest getting children to pick up their toys or tidy the room and see who has done the most at the end of 4 minutes. I have had good feedback that smaller kids love this!

Let me know if you try it and how the children react to the music and the countdown … adults could always try a TABATA exercise too – wall sits vs plank for the 4 minutes, while the children hurry about tidying!
