“Being a role model is the most powerful form of educating.” John Wooden
I gained a workout buddy this morning. He definitely makes things more challenging-climbing on my leg during uppercut jacks, climbing over me during ab moves, playing with the cords. But he’s always smiling (unless you tell him no) which makes the time go that much faster.
Did you know this is the first generation predicted not to outlive their parents? Obesity is on the rise. Kids don’t know what healthy is (seriously, check out “healthy snack time” in my classroom). They don’t know how to be active. I don’t want that for my boys. I want them to see what healthy is and WANT to follow my lead.
Think about it. What are you telling your kids on a daily basis? It’s never too late.
