The new mom workout craze you need to try: Toddlerography (VIDEOS)

Step aside, Zumba. Kate Hudson took a toddlerography class on the ‘Late, Late Show’ … and we can’t stop laughing.

Even if you love Zumba class (or jogging, or pilates or cycling, or whatever it is you do to stay fit), it can still be a challenge to make yourself go to the gym. Especially if you’re a busy mom of little kids.

But now you don’t have to worry about the gym at all … because there’s a new exercise fad in town that will burn tons of calories, get your heart pumping, and can be done in the comfort of your own home. You don’t even need any equipment. The only accoutrements required for this class are music and a toddler—preferably one who is willing to be your instructor for the next three or more minutes. And then get ready for the workout of your life.

Don’t believe us? Just take a look at mom and actress Kate Hudson, who took her first Toddlerography class last night, on The Late, Late Show with James Corden.

See? That just made your Zumba class look boring didn’t it?

But Hudson (who really got into the class with all of her exaggerated movements) isn’t the only star trying the new craze. Jenna Dewan Tatum and Gwyneth Paltrow are also taking the class. And each star has their own song, and a unique style for how to follow their energetic (and, frankly, erratic) mini-instructors.

Just take a look and compare them for yourself!

Gwyneth Paltrow’s moves

What we learned from watching all of these videos is simple: There’s no wrong way to do Toddlerography. And sometimes being the mother of a toddler is really all the workout you need. So don’t stress when you don’t make it to the gym. Just take a few minutes to dance around with your kid to your favorite ’80s song … and we guarantee you’ll have more fun than you would have had at Soul Cycle anyway.
