Part of your duties as a good parent is making certain that your kids get enough exercise. Not only will you be setting them on a path towards loving physical activity as adults, but you'll also be teaching them the importance of daily activity in order to stay healthy and in shape.

 

Kids who don't exercise are more prone to health problems and weight problems, so if your kids won't exercise, it's important to take steps to motivate them. Keep reading to learn how.

 

Make It a Family Activity

Making exercise a family activity could be a great way to motivate your kids when they otherwise wouldn't want to exercise. Some kids simply don't like working out on their own, or they may be bored with solo workouts. Just like adults, they may become more excited about exercise if they had people that they could enjoy it with. So go ahead and set up an exercise routine or at least an activity schedule that will suit everyone in your family. You can go jogging or biking together, go hiking to new places, or even go to the gym together.

 

Help Your Kids Find Activities They Enjoy

Not every child will respond in the same way to every workout, so if your kids won't exercise, it could just be a matter of helping them find something that they love to do. Perhaps your child would enjoy being on a sports team, or maybe they really enjoy diving into the pool for a swim. Other kids may be attracted to yoga, while others may be more inclined to lift weights. Rather than forcing your kids to stick to an exercise routine that they don't really enjoy, give them the freedom to try out different things and then stick with the physical activities that they like best. After all, every form of fitness provides its own set of benefits.

 

Set a Good Example

If you don't exercise, it will be difficult to convince your kids to exercise. Therefore, being a good role model is a great way to encourage your kids to work out, as they'll want to emulate you. You can prove just how good it feels to exercise, eat right, and stay in shape, and you can teach them about proper form, scheduling workouts, and more.

 

As you can see, if your kids won't exercise, there are many steps you can take to get them to be active. Once your kids realize the benefits of working out, they won't want to stop.
