In essence, my father was leading by example. And, not only did I learn from his example, but so did my brother and sister. They are both committed to exercising and eating right (most ofrepparttar time).

This brings me to some of those secret benefits I mentioned earlier. Our kids now watch us workout and eat healthy. The same things that happened to me as a kid are happening torepparttar 145090 next generation. Our kids want to userepparttar 145091 home gym, do stretches and floor exercises, and eat nuts and fruit for snacks instead of candy and cookies (most ofrepparttar 145092 time).

Here is my point in all of this. By taking care of himself my father was taking care of his kids and his grandkids. And, you can believe that his great grandchildren will benefit as well.

What better gift can one pass down thanrepparttar 145093 desire to lead a healthy lifestyle andrepparttar 145094 enhanced quality of life that goes with it? There is nothing better.

In addition to influencing your children, this same mechanism can and also does apply to friends, parents, co-workers and employees (if you are a business owner). Iíve seen this happen with many ofrepparttar 145095 clients I have worked with overrepparttar 145096 years.

The moral of this story is: By leading a lifestyle built around physical fitness and smart nutrition, you may be taking care of a lot more people than just yourself.
