My kids are 4 and 6 years old and they are like sponges. Although I wish I would do everything perfect I don't I get some things wrong. Everyday they see Mama working out and Daddy running they know we do this everyday except on rest days. We try to instill in them that a daily workout routine is just as important and lets say a bath. lol. We have been on this workout journey for about 5 years now and they have been there every step of the way. When Ryan showed an interest in boxing I know that him seeing us workout helped him see that working out is okay and that in order to reach your goals you have to work hard for them.
So how do you inspire your children to workout with you without pushing them or making them.
Simple you just do you and they will follow. They only one I tell he has to workout is Ryan because he is conditioning right now for boxing but before that I did not say to word to join me, they just did. Stacy occasionally will just run up and say I wanna workout let me bring more water and a snack. lol! She is my snack buddy! Yesterday she even brought me a cold banana and yogurt!
Once they see you and how you don't give up they will want to join in on that experience. I workout solely at home so they see it everyday. I remember my Dad would always workout and now he is 67 years old and came to visit a couple of weeks ago and he worked out every other day, it was still inspiring. Lead by example.
Thanks for stopping by I would love to hear some feedback so please leave a comment when you get a chance, Thank you!
