Family is all about bonding, sharing, being together, caring and beyond that! Families that exercise together not only spend quality time with each other, but also increase their competitive fitness levels!
Cities have started marathons, fitness campaigns and group physical activity events to promote fitness and make exercise a family affair. Parents inculcate fitness interest in their children by motivating them, being an example themselves and by doing outdoor things together.
When people from different backgrounds, age groups, interests and fitness levels participate in an event together, there exists a sense of extended family bonding among the participants. If noted, more than a quarter of the people taking part in any fitness event are couples or families with kids who love to run.
Some of the most famous marathons happen in India, such as the Standard Chartered Mumbai marathon (biggest running event in Asia and the richest marathon in India), Airtel Delhi Half Marathon, Chennai Trail Marathon, Airtel Hyderabad Marathon and Pune International Marathon to name a few. Families are coming forward extensively to participate in these marathons for various reasons. Apart from physical fitness, sports and exercise help in overall development: they help to cope up with stress, teach you to be disciplined, instill leadership role, help you face a huge crowd and much more.
Most kids nowadays go for skating, basketball or squash classes to remain fit, develop sportsman spirit and stay active. Participating in live events such as the ones mentioned above are a great way of entertainment (without the iPad or television screen!) and action.
Just like how research predicts that obese kids are more likely to grow into obese adults, healthy kids are more likely to grow into healthy adults.

Insisting, encouraging and pursuing physical activity, almost every single day, right from a very young age is the best investment for long-term activeness.
