Maternal Fitness Is the Cornerstone of Family Health

Childhood obesity and related health problems have become alarmingly common in our society. Fit mothers provide the antidote to these kinds of health problems, because they offer positive role models for their children. Fit, healthy moms tend to have fit, healthy babies and kids. Our level of physical activity in conjunction with other healthy lifestyle choices serve as the most powerful determinate of our children’s future health.

As mothers, we must step forward and assume the mantle of leadership, to steer our families to better health and fitness. It’s an awesome power and responsibility. Not only is our own personal health at stake, but equally important, the health and development of our children.
