My kids are always watching me. I realized that when I was getting dressed one day and my daughter said " are you going to the gym mommy?" I was putting on my gym clothes to, in fact, go to the gym. When I realized how observant my kids were I thought it would make sense to expose them to my fit life. I started bringing them to the park even brought them to the gym with me a few times (Only to pick something up, but the look of "wow look at all this stuff" on their face was priceless) At the park I would show them different exercise I would do and make it fun. It's pretty funny watching a two year old try to squat lol. Exposing them to fitness at this early age was important to me... It's a big part of our life and as they get older I'll explain the benefits. But for now, I'll just let them jump up and down because its just fun.
