Our best chance for getting kids active and curious about movement starts with us, adults. Our actions shape how they will view physical activity. And they’ll likely carry a part of that view with them for the rest of their life.

We can lead by example by being positive role models. By being physically active ourselves, and enjoying it without grinding our teeth, we show.

And by using positive terms when talking about our own training, moving or playing, we tell. We don’t do it because we have to. But because we find enjoyment in it.

So, if the idea of training in a gym makes you want to dive headfirst into an axe, choose something else.
