Well that’s not an excuse anymore! Danielle Johnson, a physical therapist at Mayo Clinic, said that crawling is an “amazing core exercise and can also improve balance and coordination.” Who knew babies were so ahead of the exercise trend? So while it may seem silly to crawl on the floor with your children, it can actually be used as a full body exercise. Learn more about healthy exercising from Mayo Clinic’s Healthy Living Program.
