Anytime that I work out, my little sidekick is right there. She gets on her shoes or her winter boots, a pair of shorts, her LegHuggers, and she’s ready to go. I think it’s a great thing she wants to be just like mom because we all know how scary childhood obesity is which can lead to being overweight as you get older. Getting your kids active is something that should and needs to be done and us as parents need to encourage it. Gavyn, loves using my hand weights, and doing jumping jacks. I found a fun site that has a fun workout video made just for kids. Dance X For Kids is fun for your kids and will make them want to exercise. Here is a bit about Dance X For Kids:
“It’s all about FUN, FUN, FUN!! – The DanceX for kids exercise videos are fun & easy to follow and your little ones will get a great workout without realizing they are exercising. In the kids workout videos, I combine some of the hottest music hits from around the world with fun dance exercise moves that give your children a total body workout. We receive rave reviews everyday from schools, the media and parents about what a difference the danceX for kids videos are making”
I was sent a DVD to review with my children and I have to say it’s fun. It gets your kids moving to fun beats and the funnest moves directed just for kids. Get moving to moves like the light bulb, monkey, locomotion, jive, the twist, the washing machine and many many more. Moves we all grew up to just put in for kids to learn and love. They will have a blast. This is a wonderful time for Zoe, Gavyn and I to bond together while getting in shape at the same time. We laugh with the moves but it really does get your heart rate going. Zoe just turned 3 and it is hard for her to pick up a lot of the combination moves. She does however love doing the twist. She is not able to finish the entire DVD as she does get pretty tired bouncing around to this 25 minute DVD. It’s adorable to watch. The DVD is for ages 4 and up but I do highly recommend for any parents with children, even daycare providers. Children will have a blast with this and on those boring rainy days this will help keep them happy and full of excitement. Gavyn, really enjoys this DVD. He loves moving non stop(what 7 year old boy doesn’t?) and getting his fitness in. He thinks the moves are “funny” and “neat”. He told me he like how they put everyday duties into a fun movie for kids to dance to! I like how they have brief pauses in between so your child can catch a breather. The children in the DVD are of various ages so if your child doesn’t feel like they are doing this perfect just remind them that is ok. We don’t have to be perfect. Just let them know we are going to dance, have fun, and spend time together while keeping our bodies healthy.
