MAKING FITNESS A FAMILY AFFAIR

  • January 20, 2016

Fitness should be for the entire family.

When I was a kid, things were much different than they are now. There were days we got up early in the morning and played every sport nine to man from sun up to sundown. We did not eat fast food, we had vegetables and meat and fruit as our snacks. Getting enough activity was never a problem, and I rarely remember seeing an overweight or out of shape kid.

Now as adults, many people have jobs where they sit throughout the day. They grab food on the run, they do not allow time for exercise or let it be the first thing to go when the schedule gets tight. When they get home, they are exhausted, so with a lack of energy they sit the rest of the night. Children follow suit, coming home in the evenings and playing video games or watching television for most of the night.

So many adults today are totally missing the mark, allowing themselves to eat unhealthy, treating working out as something you might do when convenient (if at all) and allowing their kids to follow in their footsteps.

Today childhood obesity should be a major concern among parents. This generation of kids is less active and more obese than any generation before. It makes you wonder what are their role models giving them at home?

As far as adults go, the stats of being overweight are staggering. Fitness and eating well are still only treated seriously by few and the end effects are heartbreaking.

Wouldn’t it be great if your kids naturally enjoyed exercise? It is going to start with you. If parents made healthy habits a priority,  childhood obesity wouldn’t be the looming problem that it is.

As adults we should exercise to improve health, stay fit, and control weight. But what motivates a child to be physically active? Fun. Ultimately, if children and adults enjoy an activity, they’re more likely to stick with it.

As you know, an inactive child has a greater chance of becoming an inactive adult if healthy habits aren’t instilled early in life. And it’s never too early to start.

At Fitness One, we encourage kids of all ages to be involved in a fitness program. This is not a “drop them off so they can play” which usually translates into “I have a babysitter” but an actual regiment of workouts and activities that sharpen bodies and minds. Martial Arts, boxing, speed and agility and basketball skill training are all important parts of the Fitness One line up for kids.  The classes are even set up where adults and kids can work out at the same time, in different classes.

Martial Arts

Our martial arts program combines the traditional martial arts with boxing, wrestling and performance training. We feel every Child needs physical training, and martial arts may be the most balanced way to do that. Marshal arts teaches discipline, respect and develops physical at your meet like coronation, straight and endurance as well.

Speed and Agility

Perfect for Young athletes of all ages, our speed and agility program focuses on good mechanics,  strength and speed training. This training is for any child looking for a fun, active workout.

Basketball Training

Many kids today are taking advantage of having trainers teach them the skills needed to purchase a paid in sports. Our basketball training program Will teach solid basketball fundamentals including ball handling, passing and shooting.

For the adults, our classes include rapid fat loss bootcampskickboxing, TRX, kettle bells, bodyweight workouts, cross training and much more.

Getting involved in an organized family fitness program is a great way to bring your family together with everyone focused on a common goal

Your family will not only be healthier and trimmer, but will spend quality time connecting and set habits that may last a lifetime.

Hire a Personal Trainer
Each person has different fitness needs and goals. Call or email me today to design a workout program for each family member. Learn more about Personal Training here.

Track Progress
A great way to stay motivated as a family to keep exercising is to track individual progress. If one family member needs to lose weight and another is trying to bench press heavier weight, track both of their progress and encourage them along the way.

You can also have all family members wear a pedometer and reward the person with the most steps, or choose an exercise of the month. Good choices are squats, lunges, sit-ups, push-ups, or jump rope. At the beginning of the month, each family member must perform his or her maximum number of repetitions. After a month of training, the person with the highest percentage of improvement gets a small reward.

And keep progress at the forefront with a chart on your refrigerator to track your family’s fitness goals.

A Way of Life 
When fitness is incorporated into everyday life, it won’t become a drag or another thing to fit into your already busy schedule. Set aside just an hour two to three times a week to get moving as a family. Your kids will have fun and learn valuable life lessons.

Call or email today and I will schedule a time to meet with you one-on-one to strategize the quickest and most effective route to meeting your family’s fitness goals.
