Work Out Your Body

To be at the top of their game, Phils players practice daily, including doing drills by position. Did you know that there are exercises tailored to strengthen muscles used in each specific position? See below for fun exercises to strengthen your muscles and be big and strong like the players on the field.

Phillies Phitness tips and exercises were developed in conjunction with our physical therapy partner, NovaCare Rehabilitation. Please check with your physician before beginning any physical activity program.

Sometimes you don't have the right equipment to work out. You may not have the right amount of time either. Below are some exercises for ANY age that can still give you a good workout, in a short amount of time.

  • Balloon Ball - This is a great game because it can be played indoors and outdoors and it's super simple. Get a balloon and a couple friends and keep hitting it back and forth. Whatever you do don't let it hit the ground! For an added challenge, add an extra balloon!
  • Animal Races - Get a group of friends together and race like an animal. Each race, pick a different animal. Try frog, rabbit, or duck!
  • Bubble Wrap Stomp - If you get something in the mail and there's bubble wrap inside, use it for a workout! Put it on the ground and jump on it until all the bubbles are popped. Use alternating feet or both!
  • Popcorn Push Ups - Get a workout and eat a snack! Get a bowl of popcorn and put it on the ground. Then get in a push up position with your face above the popcorn. Lower yourself and stick out your tongue to eat a kernel. The more push-ups you do, the more popcorn you can eat!
