Toddler shows off fitness regimen: Burpees and pool jumps

An Idaho 2-year-old fitness enthusiast is putting other exercisers to shame with a video showing her performing a series of burpee pool jumps.

A video posted July 12 to Instagram by Ashley Roberts shows her 2-year-old daughter, Keeley, performing burpees at the side of the pool before jumping into her mother’s arms.

Roberts lifts Keeley back out of the pool, where she performs another set of her exercises.

“The burpee baby is back! Just doing some burpee pool jumps on a hot summer day!” Roberts wrote.

Keeley’s routine would likely win the approval of experts — physical education teacher Martin Wurmlinger wrote in an article for the University of California, Los Angeles, that recommended summer activities for kids include swimming and burpees, an exercise that involves going from standing to a squat to a plank position and then reversing the process.
