For most people around the world, being fit means that they walk around the block, or that they go to gym for a fitness training program. Fitness for some people might be that they play with their children. Whatever your level of fitness is and whatever type of training program you use, as long as you are doing some kind of activity it is a good thing. Now what about your children? In today’s world with the internet, computer games, and television, most children spend too much time not being active. According to fitness experts and doctors, children should not be inactive for more than 1 hour, which means that even watching a movie is not that good for them.
Starting a fitness training program for your child can be very easy if you just use some initiative. You don’t have to get them to the gym which is boring for them and expensive for you, but you can use other methods. Make sure that they don’t watch TV for more than 1 hour at a time. If they are watching a movie, make sure that they don’t get to watch anything else or play computer games that day. Rather encourage them to play outside. You can go to the park, let them run around the garden, or give them other activities to keep them occupied.
If the weather is horrible, it can be tempting to forego the fitness training program and let them just sit in front of the TV or play games, but you can control these things too. Get them games that are active like the dance mats, and sports games where they have to do all the movements. You can also make up dancing games for them, or if they are young enough let them only watch a program that gets them up and moving with fun songs and dancing.
