When we moved to D.C., we built a home gym in our basement. It’s been life-changing. Not only does it mean that I can save at least 30-minutes driving to and from the gym, but it also means that my kids join me for many of my workouts.
In between sets, we chat and laugh, and nothing makes me smile more than seeing little Rowan take a PVC pipe and try to do overhead squats. They will join me in my interval training, dancing in the workout intervals while I do burpees. We have fun, and I love modeling the importance of fitness.
So if it’s feeling hard to fit in a workout, ask yourself if you can combine family time with ‘gym’ time. Add a little workout buddy to your life.
