Why I Recommend Family Time Fitness Family Time Fitness products are great for

After raising two children who became elite athletes, I truly realized the value of daily exercise for healthy habits as children and later on as adults. I’ve been happily surprised to see how committed my now-adult children are to their health and physical fitness after athletic training and having healthy habits throughout childhood.

I didn’t plan for my kids to be athletes. I homeschooled Will and Christina through high school, but I didn’t have a good program for their physical education in the beginning. I wasn’t an athlete growing up, so physical education was our weakest subject. If Family Time Fitness would have been available back then, I definitely would have used it. Since we didn’t have a good physical education program, physical education was hit-or-miss in the early years of our homeschooling. We did some stunts and tumbling (my favorite athletic activities) and introduced various sports (thanks to my husband, who was an athlete), but Will wasn’t very interested. We just assumed he wasn’t an athlete.

When Will was introduced to skiing through Cub Scouts just before turning 8, we discovered he was a natural and had an amazing sense of balance. Later on, we discovered that foot sports in particular were his specialty. Even though he had a late start, Will went on to become an international competitor in pairs figure skating. Christina loved dance and almost every sport from the beginning, so for her it was just a matter of following her interests to find the best sport for her.

A program like Family Time Fitness would have given Will a solid foundation and regular physical fitness from the beginning. It would also have helped us identify his strengths and interests much sooner.

Family Time Fitness Core and Platinum Curriculum Programs The Family Time Fitness programs are designed for ages 5-13, although there are many activities that could be used with younger and older children. I have a post with Montessori-inspired physical fitness for preschoolers using Family Time Fitness lessons.

The Family Time Fitness materials are easily downloadable and can be used on a computer, tablet, or smart phone. My preference would  be to have the materials on a tablet for easy accessibility indoors or outdoors. If you don’t have an easy way to take the online materials outdoors, there’s a one-page summary for each lesson you can print out and take outdoors with you.

Now, there’s also a book version with DVD demonstration videos for the Core 1 Curriculum.

I love that the lessons are simple and unintimidating for parents without an athletic background. Each lesson has a description of the activity and a short video demonstrating the activity. The equipment needed is inexpensive and easily purchased, such as hula hoops, jump ropes, bean bags, playground balls, cones, measuring tape and a stop watch.

If you can’t do some of the activities outdoors, you can even do them indoors in a rec room or your living room. I really appreciate that the activities are designed for use with multiple ages and are fun ways to develop gross-motor skills and get exercise at the same time. This is a program any family can do.
