The importance of staying fit as a parent

Sep 09, 14 The importance of staying fit as a parent

I have always been a little chubby and that never really bothered me, because I always had people around that supported me and loved me just the way I was, my parents, brother and wife on top of this list. However, I started to feel the need to do something about my excessive weight after I first became a dad. Without me even noticing it, my unhealthy lifestyle had made me gain weight little by little until I became unable to carry my son up the stairs to tuck him to bed without having to stop at the top of the stairs to catch my breath first. Running after him when he was playing around or being naughty was out of the question. In fact, I could barely walk, not to mention run. I have to admit it; taking care of my kid became a strain after he started trotting around energetically. The thing that determined me to seek help and start personal training was not being able to play any sports with my son. I could see him looking longingly at other fathers playing catch or football with their kids, while I needed rest after walking for only five minutes.

The mistake parents often make is taking extremely good care of their children while forgetting all about their own health. Watching myself being unable to support my kid in everything he did, because of my condition made me realize that parents should take even better care of their health and try to stay fit to ensure that they will have the energy to raise their children properly. Deciding to lose weight by exercising was one of the best decisions of my life, second in fact after my decision to marry my beautiful wife. I never liked exercising, so I was a bit reluctant at first, but I needed to do something about my weight and deteriorating health, so I contacted one of the best instructors in Dublin to make sure I will get good results. Exercising together with a personal coach kept me motivated and helped me lose considerable weight in a short time. It is amazing how efficient an exercise become, if you are doing it properly. With the workout my personal instructor designed for me, I became a new man, someone capable of keeping up with his son in the park.

As a parent, you should always set an example to your kids and leading a sedentary life and having the health I was having because of it was the last I wanted for my kid. I wanted to show him that you can do anything as long as you set your mind to it, so my desire to come out undefeated from my diet and training, preferably with a normal weight, kept me going. The power of example is scary, I saw how my kid changed his views on sports after we started playing together. This is why you should always keep fit even after you become a parent or especially after you become a parent. Not only will you be able to keep up with his energy, but you will also teach your kid a valuable lesson and help him lean towards a healthier lifestyle through example.
