Have you ever noticed when you do a workout video your little ones are either watching you or actually trying to do it with you? Last week my 4 and 9 year old were trying to do P90x Plyometrics with me. I have to say they did a pretty good job..okay a great job! It got me thinking about DVDs for kids.

 Now more than ever we are seeing the obesity rate in children rise quickly. Start now and start early. Get your kids moving even if they do not have a weight problem. They need to start learning now how to exercise and eat right.

With summer coming it is a great time to try new things like a kids workout DVD. You can find Shaun T.'s Fit Kids Club, Yoga for all ages including those with Autism. I even found dancing with Richard Simmons!

Shaun T: Fit Kids Club - Workout DVD Why not do the DVD with your kids? That way there is no excuse as to why you didn't get your workout in! You can show them proper form, spend time with them and exercise!! I know summer is hard to stick to a workout routine, so try changing yours around a bit and have some fun. You may not feel like you ran a 10k, but really it is too hot anyway!

Bottom line is start leading by example! I know I have been known to let my daughter watch extra TV if she jumps on the mini trampoline in our living room. Next time I think I will put in a kids workout DVD instead! Give it a try, pop in a workout and for once don't feel guilty, feel healthy!
