Relay races are a lot of fun. I remember we used to do this many afternoons in school when we were getting restless. It was exercise that work us up but yet we did not see it this way.

By setting the example, and getting results while setting this example; this is how I got my grown kids to take on the iron as part of their life.

They saw what condition I was in when I started (44, 200+ lbs), and the condition I am in now nearing 51. To this very day, I have my 48 inch pants hanging on the ceiling in my walk-in closet (and now 29/30, at 168 pounds). They have seen up front and in person, what diet and training consistency can do for a person young or old.

They had seen me in the passed years and see me now, track what I eat in a dietary journal and what I am doing in the gym by tracking it in a journal. They ask questions, and I answer them the best I can. If I don't know the answer, I find it for them. Now, my oldest son has his own equipment at his home, while the other has a membership.

Consistency under the iron and getting "personal" results wanted, can be contagious within a good tight nit family. Not to mention venomous heart and soul support, devotion, patience, and love.


Best regards,

Chillen

Well, what I always suggest to parents who try to get their kids into sports is try to listen to your kid but also try to steer them into it. How to do this, well try to give intensives. If you try as hard as you can we can go get ice cream, if you score a goal we can get the big ice cream.

Another way to encourage exercise is to go to their games. Do not be one of those parents that is not going to go to their games. That will not make them not want to participate many times if no one is there to watch them.

We do pool days in the summer with our family and when we camp, we play bocche ball or do kickball. It gets all of us off our butts and we always have a good time.

Squirt gun fights. It is a great way to get exercise because you are running around chasing each other.

Lead by example and show how rewarding it is for you. Always speak negatively about non exercisers but not them specifically and they will subconsciously learn to reward exercise. Its a crafty method but it works.
