Based on 2010 data, the statistics are astounding and grim–About one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese. Approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2—19 years are obese. [Data from the National Health and Examination Survey (NHANES)]. My wife and I, as well known parents in the fitness industry, have decided to work on a project,F3™—Family, Fitness and Fun! Thus, we are trying to educate people on proper parenting choices to help prevent the further decay of health and wellness across the world. Step one is to show activities we can do with our children and show healthy eating options for your family.
In the below video, I demonstrate a
Sunday tradition at the Lobliner household. It is a workout program I designed. My children are five (Kami) and three (Thomas) years old. They BEG me to do this. They look forward to it. We wake up, have a healthy, light breakfast together and then after digestion and some playtime, we are off to the nearby elementary school field. The school has a track, grass field and bleachers. The “F3 Family HIIT” program is:
- Warm Up: 2 laps (about 1 mile) walk/jog around the track
- 10 (up and down) bleacher sprints
- 10 – 50 yard wind sprints: Sprint out, walk back then repeat 10 times
- Cool Down: 1-2 laps (about 0.5-1 miles) walk/jog around the track
THE PROGRAM IN ACTION ON VIDEO!
After this, we go home and my wife and I have an MTS Nutrition Whey Sludge and the
kids usually have an MTS Nutrition Whey smoothie with fresh-from-the-farm milk and strawberries. This has brought us closer as a family and I am positive we are instilling good habits in our children.
As for nutrition, parents are even worse! But we will save this for the next installment of F3 next week.
So if you want to spend quality time and bond with your kids, teach your kids the value of
health and fitness, and whip your own butt into shape, start living the F3 lifestyle today!
