Best way to encourage your parents to exercise


As an active person, maybe you realize and feel in your life the benefits of exercise and would like your aging parents to experience the same kind of benefits.  Vintage Fitness trainers work as a team with many older adults and their children to inspire active, healthy lives.  

Here are a few tips: 

1. Keep it light: None of us like to be preached at or made to feel badly about our lack of motivation around exercise.  Work with your mom and dad to create activity goals together.


2. Start them with a gift: It often takes a few months for new exercise habits to develop.  Many clients purchase the first few personal training sessions for their parents to get them started.


3. Make it intergenerational: If you and your family live close enough to your parents exercise together and include the grandkids.
