Why is family exercise so important for children?

For kids, being introduced to healthy behaviours early in life is a gift, as they will inherit these routines and carry them to their adulthood.

Family time is often sedentary and passive when kids watch a movie or play with some of the many electronic devices accessible for them.

However, have you considered spending this quality time together doing physical activity?

Here are some of the many benefits of exercising in family:


  1. Encourages family bonding time

Sometimes, in between work, extracurricular activities, school… Parents find it difficult to spend time with their children.

On top of that, a lot of parents also struggle to develop a healthy exercise routine for themselves.

That’s why family exercise is a win-win!

Physical activity and family sports, foster an environment of teamwork and communication – two things that are extremely important for a child’s development. It’s a great opportunity to get to know each other, learn what your child likes or dislikes and understand where they need help.


  1. Walk-the-talk

Are you looking to encourage healthy habits in your children?

Then exercising with them is a great idea.

Did you know that kids often carry family routines into their adulthood? Use family time to do physical activities with them!

If kids see adults doing something, they are more likely to be interested in doing it as well. By incorporating healthy habits into your lifestyle, you are encouraging your children to introduce these routines into their life too!


  1. It motivates teamwork!

Those good habits being taught at school need to be also encouraged at home.

Exercising together is a great opportunity to teach your kids how to work towards a common goal. Physical activity and family sports foster an environment of teamwork and communication, which are really valuable skills for your child’s development.


  1. Healthy adults

Lifestyle habits are learned in the early stages of our development.

Of course, we can choose to change them, but it doesn’t come as natural.

For some children, exercise is an activity that they must do in or after school, and sometimes even an obligation. For others, it’s a natural habit that they will carry into their adulthood.

By encouraging physical activity in the early stages of their development, you are helping children to develop a lifetime healthy routine.


  1. It’s fun for everyone

Let’s face it. As adults, sometimes we struggle to find the motivation to exercise.

By involving the whole family in it, you can find that physical activity can be fun and rewarding.

Let’s get the endorphins flowing!
