Being a mom of two, I’ve always wanted what’s best for my children.
I want my kids to live happy, healthy lives, and leading by example is the best way to teach them this.
Over time my daughter got very interested in what we were doing, and wanted to exercise along with us. She started out running sprints and eventually I got her small one-pound weights so she could try to work out like mommy was.
Now she loves to exercise with me.
She understands that exercise is good for our bodies, and she’ll carry this information with her for the rest of her life.
At BeyondFit, we believe it’s important to teach children how to live a healthy life by our example. When it comes to exercises for kids, with small children, we love that you can turn exercise into a game.
Exercises for kids that you can do at home together:
- Jumping Jacks
- Frog Jumps
- Sprints – outside on a beautiful day to help burn some of that energy.
- Active songs like ring around the rosy
Simple workout with fun exercises for kids:
We live in a world that is surrounded by technology from cell phones to video games. It’s time to put everything down and start becoming more active, whether it’s taking a walk with your family, exercising with your family, or just simply spending time together.
With childhood obesity on the rise, now is the perfect time to teach our children how to be active and develop healthy habits that will last them a lifetime.
I believe that healthy kids are raised by healthy moms. As parents, we play a key role in our children’s choices and behaviors.
Not sure where to start? Let’s make it easy and begin with some essential new habits that will revolutionize your children’s health.
