Ok, so I am wondering what you all think is a good age for a child to start working out? I do not mean weight lifting, but exercising daily like an adult would...of course not as strenuously though.Answer Question

Anytime. There are youth programs for fitness. DD (7) takes a Zumbatomic class and loves it. Swimming is great exercise. She sometimes does yoga with me as well. DS (10) loves to ride his bike and play soccer with the neighbors and has taking cross training classes. If you get kids outside they will usually do some form of exercise without even knowing it.

If a child is at a average weight and height for their age. And they play out side a lot and at school. they do not need to do extra exercise.
But if they are over weight. they need to change their eating habits first then go play out side.
