No! There is no need for you to go along with them to a gym or some training class, if you become their fitness role model. This means that you
simply need to reserve some time for practicing fitness exercises with your
kids. By watching their parents exercising regularly, kids will automatically be motivated to do the same. Even studies have shown that such children are more likely to live a healthy lifestyle.
But there’s a twist here! This time, you will not perform those conventional gym-based exercises. Kids are certainly going to get bored with them, which will simply de-motivate them at some point in time. So, why not think of a few fun ways to remain fit? The increasing fascination of computers and video games has actually arrested your kids in sedentary fun. Why not replace it with active fun? After all, you not only get time to be with your
kids, but you make good use of that time ensuring a healthy life for your kids and boosting their confidence. So, here are some fun fitness ideas that you can affordably employ!
Daily Walking or Skipping

Conduct a Dancing Contest
Dancing is always the most loved activity of kids. Now to that, if you add the spice of competition, you just cannot imagine how much you and your kids are going to practice! There is no better cardio workout than the dancing on some cool fitness DVDs. As a tip, let the competition be amongst the friends and relatives, and keep a condition that each group will have at least one parent and kid to participate. This way you keep everybody’s heart pumping!
