“…Since my kids were babies, I have scheduled my workouts like I schedule an appointment. It’s inked in my calendar. My kids have grown up knowing that I value exercise. hey tagged along to the gym with me happily and sometimes, not so happily. They have listened to me talk about strength, cardio and healthy eating. And now they will even workout with me and actually value the example I set for the past 22 years. Believe me, I remember the times when I’d just start my workout and a baby would start to cry. Or we’d arrive at the gym and one Tof the three would get sick … I know most of you can feel that pain. But the most important thing is to not give up and to try again…”

“…Take Katy Widrick, for example. Before becoming a mom, the TV producer, blogger and group fitness instructor thought she was a master multi-tasker. “I juggled a full-time job with a blog, training for half-marathons and more. Then came my daughter — my perfect, amazing little girl. And boy, did she teach me that everything I thought I knew about managing my time was a joke!” she says.

10 Ways to Exercise as a Family How to get the whole family moving — together.
by Aviva Patz
“…How, you may wonder, can you help your child get the recommended one-plus hours of daily physical activity when you can’t even make it to the gym? The answer, says Virgilio, is to rethink your idea of exercise. “A workout doesn’t have to mean running laps or lifting weights, which requires you to set aside blocks of time,” he says. “Think of exercise as leading an active lifestyle, which you can do with your kids, and you’ll be able to fit in more than you think.”
As a bonus, exercise with family does double duty as quality time — no small consideration given our jam-packed schedules. Let these creative ideas help you turn every day into an opportunity to get fit — and have fun — together.

Fitness Trainer and Mother of Three Demonstrates How to Work out With Your Kids

So your kids have been joining in anyways, why not make a workout that includes them? Fair warning: you have to show up willing to play.
You may be familiar with the Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” program. She is on a mission to eradicate childhood obesity, and has invited the faith community to get involved. Of course Revelation Wellness is going to meet that call.
It is important that we model healthy living to our kids. Even more important it is that we have continual dialogue about WHY God would want us to live healthy & whole lives. We challenge you to explain to them how God’s word is not only our health in being, but also our health in doing. That old adage is true “You are what you eat.”; when we participate in a well balanced diet and exercise plan, we are well fueled to get the task of giving and receiving love well.
And if we may add one to your list of sayings “What you do, you become.” Making the harder choices is an exercise in obedience. Obedience rarely goes down the path of least resistance. Give your kids an opportunity to “workout” their love for God and others and who they are in Christ, as they feel their bodies heat up and push against that path of most resistance.
Jesus is the remedy for all of our ailments. We, the church, are the vehicle to dispense his healing love. Start at home first and then let the ripple effect take over.
Any others you do or recommend?
