Happy Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there!
Whether you’re a Rock Fit member, or simply a mom that wants to get in shape, you should know that your fitness habits go beyond making an impact on your body. The workouts you have today influence the health and wellness of your kids and the kids that may be yet to come (yes, even grandchildren)!
You see, when it comes to habits, kids listen and watch what their parents do, closely. If Mom and Dad love to get fit, then chances are your kids are going to love working out, too. And, it’s not just younger children that are influenced by your behaviors. Older kids, teens, even kids that have grown up–all of them have the ability to be influenced by the positive behaviors you take on as moms.
The moms who have trained with Rock Fit all notice their kids interest in health & fitness increases as they begin to burn fat, lose weight, look good and feel better in their clothes, etc. And, this happens, regardless of how old their kids are.
So, the next time you hear yourself saying, “I don’t have time to eat right / go for a workout / give myself some time to relax,” remember:
Do it for them.
Being a kind and loving parent also means taking care of yourself. It sets a great example for your kids to learn how they can do the same.
