Happy Father's Day!
In honor of Father's Day, we at CrossFit Lake Zurich would like to announce our war against the "Dad Bod". I am sure many of you have seen the articles and pictures encouraging this unhealthy way of life and applauding those who have turned their backs on trying to achieve a higher level of fitness.
When did we stop trying to set the best possible example for our kids? Much of the media have embraced this downward trend in the health and fitness of our patently population while shaming those parents who embrace an active lifestyle throughout their child rearing years. I for one say screw the status quo and let's set a better example for others to follow. A focus on health and fitness should be a life long pursuit and should not only be examined when faced with metabolic disorders, life style caused diseases and preventable conditions.
Embrace a healthy, more active life with your family today. Turn off the televisions, computers and smart phones to get outside, throw a ball, ride a bike or simply take a family walk. Not only will you start to create a healthier family dynamic but you will also increases the amount of Father's Days that you will be able to enjoy with your kids in the future.
