Getting kids interested in fitness by making it fun with Sean Garner

img_4911As fathers, how do we get our kids interested in fitness and exercise?

With so many sedentary activities at our childrens’ fingertips – TV, video games, iPads, phones – how do we as Fit Dads encourage our kids to do what their bodies were made to do – move?

We make exercise fun, of course!

That’s the approach this week’s podcast guest,Β Sean Garner, uses with his young clients. Sean runs the Little Anatomy program at high-end Miami fitness club, Anatomy at 1220. Sean is a regular Men’s Health magazine contributor and a “body architect,” as they call it at Anatomy at 1220.

Using kids’ natural desire to play, run around, and generally be whirlwinds of energy, Sean’s Little Anatomy program is getting kids fit and healthy, and they’re having a blast.

In this episode, I talk with Sean about how to get kids active, how to motivate them, and at what age dads should start getting their children involved in exercise. The answer might surprise you.
