We were MORE than lucky to get a chance to speak one on one with the wonderful and inspirational Jillian Michaels about her upcoming speaking tour, aiming to educate and help as many people as possible make the healthy changes needed in their lives!
Beyond how she's going to be motivating those at her show, she DID drop a little tidbit on how to keep your kids active, and we want to share that with you guys!
Here's what she said:
"You have to be your kids' primary role model and their PARENT! Limit their screen time, and that means your butt can't be in front of the TV all day either! So get out there and play a game of HORSE with them and shoot some hoops! Go bike ride with them, walk the dog with them, hike with them!
If you want to have them play video games, pick games for the XBox that are more physical and they're moving!"
We LOVE that her response is basically to just be a parent!
That means taking an active role in your kids' lives, and not just letting the tv raise them! Such fab advice!
Hope your tour goes well, Jillian!
