Jennifer Gelman dives into leg squats while loading the dishwasher. She does pushups while playing chess with her kids.

She has 52,000 followers on Instagram, some of which have been inspired to post their own family workouts.

“I love getting creative with it. Everyday I’m trying to come up with new ideas on how we could get a different type of workout in,” she told INSIDE EDITION.

The busy mom says it's a big problem finding time to stay in shape, so she’s had to improvise.

She does plank exercises anywhere she happens to be, often making it a family affair, as the kids join in.
