Karen Rani, author of the lovely Troll Baby, has a great tip for family fitness:
I find that exercise equipment can be dangerous around a curious toddler, and walking with the stroller every day is good, but gets old fast. I spice it up with an after-school dance party in the family room by moving the coffee table and putting on our favorite music. My toddler and 7 year-old love to let loose after school and naptime and with me joining in, I'm losing weight and having a blast with my kids. Also? It's free!
