Everybody always looks at Workouts as this dreaded hour that you take out of your life to go to a gym and use some boring machines while you find a sitter for your kids or your spouse is staying home to watch them.
This is NOT the way I live and I'm a Personal Trainer so there is definitely no need for you to live this way.
Being fit and healthy does not mean boring and dreaded. Not only do we all workout together as a family quite often, but we enjoy it and don't consider it a workout. We make it fun not just for us but for the kiddos.
Instead of sitting down to play a video game with your kid or a watch a tv show, get them outside on a hike, play some ball, jump on the trampoline, go kayaking or paddle boarding. Anything that involves movement.
Even on days that its cold or nasty outside there is plenty to do inside that is active and fun for everyone. For example, my husband and son have a pull-up battle going on at the moment. Funny thing is that my husband didn't even know this was happening because he just decided to start doing as many pull-ups as he could when he wakes up in the morning and when he goes to bed and our son saw this and has now started building up how many he can do. My husband isn't even home when our son is doing this but his example is leading him to do this while we are working.
If he saw us just sitting around all day long on the internet or watching tv and eating unhealthy then this is what he would be doing. We don't complain about workouts. We get excited to do active things instead of blogging about how awful workouts are or how awful it is to eat healthy and things not pay off the way we want it to.
So, stop dreading the workouts. Get your kiddos and spouse involved. You will not only see the health improvements in everyone but you will also see their happiness improve and the communication between each other also thrive.
