Anywhere you look – online, on TV, in the store – there are things out there telling you how important it is to stay fit and healthy. However, it can be difficult to incorporate a daily fitness regimen into your routine, and it can be hard to workout with your kids around. But it is important as parents that we model this behavior to our children early on so that it is engrained in their lifestyle as they continue to grow. So how do we do both – model a healthy lifestyle while balancing our busy schedules?

It’s about that time of year where you may be thinking: I need to get healthy and start working out. You’ve already decided that joining a gym, whether it was the constant voice of your nagging best friend (who had the best of intentions of course) or your inner critic, is your next step. Whether you live inside the city limits or not, you’ve got more than just ‘I need a place to get healthy at’ to consider when it comes to signing up for a gym membership. Do they provide child care, lockers, or even decent equipment? Whether or not you are a beginner gym hunter (or huntress), here are ten tips to help you make that leap into fitness before signing on the dotted line and beginning your venture to a healthier lifestyle with a gym membership.
The weather has finally started to cool down, and that means it’s the perfect time to get the kids outside for some active play. Summer was spent in the sprinklers, at the pool, or at the beach, but the crisp fall air allows you to be active without the need to cool off in the water. One great family friendly activity for this time of year is bike riding. And being prepared with the right gear can make for a much more comfortable and fun ride for everyone. For your littlest riders, a bike seat is a key accessory needed. But how do you know which one is the right one for you?
Hamax is an innovative child road safety company that offers high quality, safe bike seat products for your family. They have several different options depending on your needs and the needs of your child, and it’s important to look at the features of each seat to ensure that it works for your bike and for you. Below is a list of key features to look for when you’re transitioning your bike from a one-seater to a two-seater.

Our family is one of health and fitness. I am a runner, a yogi, and an avid fitness lover. My husband is an active duty Marine, and fitness is in his daily regime. Frequently our family goes on runs, hikes, and bike rides together. I take my three daughters with me to workout groups and they sit in the jogging stroller on long runs. We love to be active and healthy, and our dog Pendleton is no exception to this.
When my husband and I first adopted Pendleton we would take her to the dog park or the dog beach almost every weekend. I would come home during my lunch break during the week and take her on a long walk around the neighborhood or let her play in the field behind our apartment complex. As Pendleton got older and our family grew, our outings became less frequent but her love for the outdoors never ceased. But we stopped taking her on our long adventures out because she would become visibly weary, and we didn’t want to exhaust her. This continued for years until recently when we made the switch to Iams quality dog food.
