As I’ve written about before, I work-out a lot. At least five mornings a week I’m at my fitness studio for an intense 60 minute class with cardio and weight-lifting intervals. I love the natural high that follows a hard-core work-out!
Chris is borderline obsessed with his Cross-Fit work-outs. He also goes at least five times a week, and his strong arms and broad chest are proof of his dedication. He is determined to share his love of health and fitness with the kids, so every morning he rounds them up for a set of push-ups, squats, jumping-jacks and sit-ups.
On their lucky days, Dad joins in on the fun!
Even little Vivian wants in on the action. She might be little, but she is determined to be mighty!
Some mornings the kids whine as I’m leaving for the gym – they want me to stay home. I explain to them that I want to stay healthy for them and for me. Once they hear this, they calm down and return to Dad. They understand that our bodies need to be cared for and treated well if we want to live a healthy life.
