How do I get my family involved in working out with me?

With so many options for kids not to exercise, kids are more unfit that any other time in our history.  One of the best ways to get your family involved in working out with you is by exercising together.  Making if fun and incorporating a variety of activities is key to keeping all family members engaged. 

If you want your family involved in your exercise program start them off slowly. Ask them to join you and work to make it fun for everyone.
