The goal here is to plant the seed of a love for fitness and physical activity, not force our kids to exercise like we remember being forced to eat our broccoli. So, try gradually increasing their activity levels to meet this recommended amount. Swapping just 15 minutes of screen time with some low-key physical play time would be a good start. Your First Mission: Take Care of Player 1. Step 1: Acquire child(ren). I know this isn’t everyone’s idea of a good time, and that’s cool, but if you do find yourself with kids, please proceed to Step 2. (Those not continuing further can resume enjoying their hot meals, nights out, money, and sleep).

Step 2: Recognize this begins with YOU. I’m choosing to build their character traits around a love of fitness, fun and wellbeing. I think these traits work well with so many game paths that it’s a great choice for most parent character-builders. Is it easy? No, but it’s vitally important to foster and ingrain these attributes early in.

Let your kids do any and all exercises they want to do. Just keep things light, fun, and unstructured. The goal when your kids are young is to make fitness enjoyable.

One of the benefits of having a garage gym is that it makes “playing” gym with your kids a lot easier. When I’m outside with the kiddos watching them zoom around on their big wheels, they’ll often want to take a break from that to. Guest author Dan Schmidt with Nerd Fitness shares how to instill a love of fitness in your kids. This is Part 1 of 2. Episode 304: [Part 1] Parents: How to Instill a Love of Fitness in Your Kids by Dan Schmidt – Nerd Fitness (Healthy Family Living).

Steve Kamb started exercising back in high school without really knowing what he was doing. Guest author Dan Schmidt with Nerd Fitness shares how to instill a love of fitness in your kids. This is Part 2 of 2. Episode 305: [Part 2] Parents: How to Instill a Love of Fitness in Your Kids by Dan Schmidt – Nerd Fitness (Active as a Family).

Steve Kamb started exercising back in high school without really knowing what he was doing. Turn fitness into a family activity and share your goals and challenges with each other. Or create a reward system. Create goals like “work out three days a week for three months” and treat your kids to a day at a themepark or a pizza party if you (both) hit your target. As with other issues, parents can offer counter-messaging to combat the harmful notions about fitness and body image that kids may absorb from advertising, pop culture or even their peers.

Caregivers should avoid words, behaviors and actions that tie exercise to the pursuit of weight loss. Encouraging your child to develop their mental muscle for math can help build solid foundations for later learning in critical thinking and creativity. Instill a love of travel in your kids by prioritizing travel as a family.

If you’re not sure where to begin, take advice from some jet-setting parents who also happen to work in the travel industry.

By being supportive of their children’s athletic and other interests in physical activity and by encouraging children to play outside, parents can enhance opportunities for moderate to vigorous physical activity and promote physical fitness.

  • This is the best exercise Emi has told me. My waist is now no more. Wow I am still doing this exercise early morning it’s super fun. Hope you guys also enjoy.

  • I was crying knowing that my dad hates me. My mom asked my dad if he loves me while he was drunk and he never lies when hes drunk he said “who will love a ugly ass disappointment” my heart broke i dont wanna live anymore i wanna go back to the days where my dad loved me, where i had fun with him now its just hatred that he has for me i honestly don’t wanna live anymore. I know im not the best daughter he wanted, but i love him it just breaks me seeing him say he hates me.

  • I’m not to sure about the high thing. Yes I do like hugging my friends. Or at least those I have left. But my mom only recently stopped asking what I wanted when I would randomly hug her. Because she thought that was the only reason. And she only stopped asking that, because I started to do almost anything she wanted me to do.

  • This is great! Love the adjusted options, and the kids in the video do a super job! My 12 year old and I are getting fit and having a good time. Thanks so much for making this video!!!

  • Anyone get me???

    My story:

    So I went on a trip with two friends right since quarantine recently finished

    And when I got back from the trip at dinner they asked what your favorite part was and I said “It was nice to be away from family for a little while”
    And I guess they took that as an insult I don’t know but they said “Really -_our of everything you did there you didn’t even miss us and…

    I can’t remember much:/ but it was kinda annoying and I was said no no I was just-
    And anyone else have this problem I can never say a hole sentence until one of my parents interrupt me and then they never understand sighs
    -_-

  • My mom SCREAMS at me and talks with such a disgusting tone, but when I do that, she ALSO screams at me and tells me I am being disrespectful. Maam, YOU WERE MY INFLUENCER SO IM TALKING EXACTLY LIKE YOU, Its ur fault. All of it

  • When parents says more bad things than others..how can I love them back? ��
    My mom called me bitch just because I had a boyfriend and accused that I was in relation we th a 40 yr old man..(just because my neighbor said so)
    I was just 13 and didn’t had any connection with that man..my parents never believed me ������
    What should I do!?

  • Mom: why dont you feel like you can trust me?? Ofc you can, tell me anything!!
    Me: Well, whenever I try to open up to you I personally feel like you just shut me down, yell at me, or just laugh and make the situation worse, and I end up thinking “why did I do that, I already knew it would’ve made everything worse” ((90 percent of my life my parents will never know))
    Mom: *proves my point and goes on a rant about how I should be more grateful*

    Can anyone relate??

  • My mom used to abuse me and now she doesn’t talk to me anymore. She just watches 90 day fiancé. She doesn’t even talk to me or say “I love you”

  • I love the function of the brain �� It’s such a powerful tool that we have and people don’t want to believe it! Thank you for your platform!

  • My parents told me they loved me when i was 3, ive never heard those words from them again. They have made me gain anxiety and blame me for it, all my friends say that they will open to me but they havent. Ive hugged them, made sure they were ok and done chores so they wont be in pain. They’ve just broke me

  • my mother doesn’t trust me what so ever. no boys aloud over. no going places at night. no sleepovers i mean seriously she’s just making everything worse for me. i feel as if i have to hide everything from her.☹️it sucks. i just want her to trust me and let me do things.

  • I love my parents but they are not really respectful of me, my mom will get mad at me for rolling my eyes or sassing her but then she turns around and does the same exact thing. Not only that but when i try to approach her about these things or just things in general that i think would help our relationship she gets upset, my brother has been saying how he wants to move out as soon as possible and i tried telling my mom that maybe theres a reason hes saying that and that maybe theres some things she needs to do differently but she just rolls her eyes and gets upset, i seriously dont know what to do, its to the point where im just asking her to listen to what i have to say and shes just getting upset at me, there was another time she was driving me to an event w my friend and i was meeting my friend there, my friend texted me and said she was going to be late so i asked my mom if we can wait in the car for her, ( i have social anxiety and i didnt know anyone at the event so it was very scaring thinking about walking into the event alone) she said no and that she had to get home, i started panicking and say no i cant do this please stay w me and she just demanded i get out of the car, i was left sitting alone for 20 mins before my friend got there. Long story short if anyone has suggestions that could help please let me know

  • my mom outright said that there’s probably no fixing our relationship and she said “it is what it is.” i’m 13. i love her and i want a good relationship but she doesn’t feel the need to change anything

  • My mum:I’ll buy you a phone if you go to that high school
    Me:-shakes cuz doesn’t want the phone but will try to get in the school-
    My mum: tells grandmaSee even if I offer her a phone, she won’t go to that high school!
    Me: stays silent while holding back my tears
    It really sucks when my parents misunderstand me..

  • I love my parents and they love me but sometimes there too overprotective when I said I’m stressed they compare me to other people to stop me from talking and sometimes there unapologetic it hurts me I just hope they can understand me

  • I have a good relationship with my parents, but, my mum is kind of a shopaholic, and well.. I can go overly anxious over cluster at home, plus I live in Hong Kong, so space can be limited. My Anxiety just randomly pops up when considering to buy anything at all, that includes books, pens.. etc etc. I just think about it at the most randomest of times. I always talk to her about my concerns and my phobia of clusters, but she says purchasing items is the only way to make her happy?? How do I get her to reduce the frequency of her buying items?

  • me: legs keep dropping in russian twist
    my sis: russian twist is so easy
    me: ur almost 14 ofcourse its easy for you
    adorable girl in the video: does it perfectly
    me: jaw drops

  • Thank you so much for this fun and nice exercise for kids I am 11 years old I wanted to do with my 7 year old sister bit she was already showered�������� and that little girl is so cute

  • My mom used to abuse me and now she doesn’t talk to me anymore. She just watches 90 day fiancé. She doesn’t even talk to me or say “I love you”

  • I don’t know why everything feels different my parents at least my mom used to love me now she gets easily angry at me she shouts at me she doesnt even hug me anymore i feel so hated and i spend most of my days crying its making me tired

  • Mom: why dont you feel like you can trust me?? Ofc you can, tell me anything!!
    Me: Well, whenever I try to open up to you I personally feel like you just shut me down, yell at me, or just laugh and make the situation worse, and I end up thinking “why did I do that, I already knew it would’ve made everything worse” ((90 percent of my life my parents will never know))

They’ve just broke me

  • My mom always has to be the victim, and therefore constantly sees me as the bad guy in many situations. I can’t tell her how I feel when I’m upset with her because, again, she will victimize herself and automatically want my pity. When I don’t give it to her, once again, I am the bad guy. I just can’t wait for the day when I can meet someone who will be willing to hear me out and not constantly put me in situations that make me uncomfortable and trigger my anxiety. Someone who won’t shame me for having normal emotions and reactions.

  • When parents says more bad things than others..how can I love them back? ��
    My mom called me bitch just because I had a boyfriend and accused that I was in relation we th a 40 yr old man..(just because my neighbor said so)
    I was just 13 and didn’t had any connection with that man..my parents never believed me ������
    What should I do!?

  • I’ve been horrible to my mum to the point she probably won’t accept any kind of apology and gift or be able to even hug me. IDK aid I’m gonna be able to fix my relationship so how can I change?

  • Anyone get me???

    -_-

  • I don’t know it’s not because my parents are abusive or anything but we aren’t really used to showing love to each other. I’m confused, maybe it’s me who doesn’t spend more time with them. Can anyone help? Thanks����

  • My mom keeps saying “stop being sad, you should be happy”. Like what the heck, don’t tell me how to feel, it feels so irritating.

  • Lol they talk to the viewers as if they’re the parents watching, trying to strengthen their relationship with their children, but in reality we’re the ones seeking a way to mend those relationships. Too bad….

  • I hope I can meet you Emi, but I stay in India �� Because meeting you is like going to the goddess of workout. But it’s my unluck ����

  • My dad comes for visitation, and we act like freinds, not daughter (or son sometimes) and father. And my step dad and me are completely different, I love my mom, but Mostly keep to myself, my grandma is a narsasistic abuser, and I only REALLY interact on a daily basis with my brother, and mostly talk with him and our best freind(a litteral frickin saint born from demons) is this ok?

  • Thank you so much for this fun and nice exercise for kids I am 11 years old I wanted to do with my 7 year old sister bit she was already showered�������� and that little girl is so cute

  • Also Ty for this! I’ve been trying to find a kid workout but they were too easy I settled with one of yours then found this one. Thank you!!!!! also will comment everyday I do this

  • I love my parents and they love me but sometimes there too overprotective when I said I’m stressed they compare me to other people to stop me from talking and sometimes there unapologetic it hurts me I just hope they can understand me

  • OMG the girl did it so perfectly
    Even the Russian twist.
    Me: I was just falling the other because I wasn’t able lift my legs. She is awesome ����❤️�� love you both Emi. U are great she is awesome ❤️��

  • I was diagnosed with ADHD, but I’m pretty sure it’s actually autism. When I was misbehaving about “stupid” things, I’d get spankings and they’d yell at me, which is really confusing and hurtful when I didn’t even realize I was being bad. I started becoming “independent” at a very early age because of it. My biological dad left before I was born because he didn’t want me, so that also didn’t help with my trust issues. And my parents and teachers were horrible to me because I had a very hard time learning, and they thought I was just being stubborn/lying. I became exactly what they called me. I didn’t even start learning to read until I was 8 because I shut down and refused to learn, (I taught myself because I didn’t trust anyone) which at that point I was homeschooled. I had mental breakdowns every time I did homework because I associated it with punishment, which I had been traumatized by at that point.

    Edit: Also, my mom will never admit it, but I think she resents me a bit because she had me at a young age. My mom and step-dad are good people, just not good parents for me.

  • One day,if i have a child,I try my best despite anything to be their mom,friend,and protector.They have a freedom to speeh when they’re small,not when they’ve grown up.

  • I love my parents but they are not really respectful of me, my mom will get mad at me for rolling my eyes or sassing her but then she turns around and does the same exact thing.

  • Hugs are a natural stress reliever when u actually believe it gonna do crap to your relationship. After that, the same crap and arguments with the same structure that leads to no real resolution and you have spoken about comes back to slap you in the face bc u actually believed ppl were finally starting to change. Why do they go back to the same nonsense of fighting to preserve authoritarian rule or status I may eyes when even I know that as parent you only rule to be able to best serve and give and love unconditionally and inadvertently at the very least teach your child to do the same. In essence, the chance to fight for something that has crumbles ling ago is put over solving the problem, which is left up and the air, and circles back to slap all of us in the face bc it was never solve and tales more than just me to do so.

  • I just turned 13 and I feel like crying all the time. I have excruciating headaches and I feel like my heart will explode. I try to talk to my mum but she doesn’t listen and I want us to love each other as much as possible. Please help

I don’t know why she thinks I’ll give her hugs… All she does is put me down and hurt me… When I say she does those things she doesn’t care… She says I need to get help all the time, I can’t give her my love like she wants… I don’t even know how to tell her that I love her because I get to afraid like I’ll trust her to not hurt my feelings or out me down and she does… I need help, any tips anyone?

  • I have a good relationship with my parents, but, my mum is kind of a shopaholic, and well.. I can go overly anxious over cluster at home, plus I live in Hong Kong, so space can be limited.

  • I feel sad that I won’t have my dad forever. I don’t really have good healthy relationships with my “friends” and no love life or drive in that area. My dad is 70 now and not in good health and it scares me to think what my future will be like by myself.

  • My mother doesnt care about my emotions especally if we had a fight over something. I turn 22 in may and I will move out then or earlier, if I can save enough money earlyer

  • idk what to do. I’m not very warm hearted myself but I’m not mean either.. I just dont like hugs from some people.. and I know people wont understand if I open up..but here I am..

  • My mom SCREAMS at me and talks with such a disgusting tone, but when I do that, she ALSO screams at me and tells me I am being disrespectful. Maam, YOU WERE MY INFLUENCER SO IM TALKING EXACTLY LIKE YOU, Its ur fault. All of it

  • One day,if i have a child,I try my best despite anything to be their mom,friend,and protector.They have a freedom to speeh when they’re small,not when they’ve grown up.

  • Hugs are a natural stress reliever when u actually believe it gonna do crap to your relationship. After that, the same crap and arguments with the same structure that leads to no real resolution and you have spoken about comes back to slap you in the face bc u actually believed ppl were finally starting to change. Why do they go back to the same nonsense of fighting to preserve authoritarian rule or status I may eyes when even I know that as parent you only rule to be able to best serve and give and love unconditionally and inadvertently at the very least teach your child to do the same. In essence, the chance to fight for something that has crumbles ling ago is put over solving the problem, which is left up and the air, and circles back to slap all of us in the face bc it was never solve and tales more than just me to do so.

  • I don’t know it’s not because my parents are abusive or anything but we aren’t really used to showing love to each other. I’m confused, maybe it’s me who doesn’t spend more time with them. Can anyone help? Thanks����

  • This is great! Love the adjusted options, and the kids in the video do a super job! My 12 year old and I are getting fit and having a good time. Thanks so much for making this video!!!

  • I have made a mistake,
    I have broken my dads feelings he dose everything for me we are not rich but he gets me everything in the world and I have been an spoilt brat. I have broken his heart and I fell like ending it. I am not sure what to do.

  • i have a good relationsship with my mother, but my dad and stepmom are the most toxic people i’ve ever met. scream at everything i do, and they think that i’m just going to respect them, when they don’t respect me at all. my self esteem is basically non-existing when i’m at their house

  • I just want my parents to take me seriously and consider that maybe I make a valid point and deserve to be listened to instead of being interrupted and yelled at…. then she tells her friends she never yells at us

  • idk what to do. I’m not very warm hearted myself but I’m not mean either.. I just dont like hugs from some people.. and I know people wont understand if I open up..but here I am..

  • My mom always has to be the victim, and therefore constantly sees me as the bad guy in many situations. I can’t tell her how I feel when I’m upset with her because, again, she will victimize herself and automatically want my pity. When I don’t give it to her, once again, I am the bad guy. I just can’t wait for the day when I can meet someone who will be willing to hear me out and not constantly put me in situations that make me uncomfortable and trigger my anxiety. Someone who won’t shame me for having normal emotions and reactions.

  • I feel sad that I won’t have my dad forever. I don’t really have good healthy relationships with my “friends” and no love life or drive in that area. My dad is 70 now and not in good health and it scares me to think what my future will be like by myself.
