In this episode of Healthy Family Project, we talk to our very own Lesley Daniels about the importance of exercising as a family. Lesley shares tips on everything from fitting in exercise in your family’s daily routine, how to fit exercise in no matter the season and how to enjoy exercise as a family.

When Lesley, Produce for Kids director of sales and account development, is not doing laundry, stepping on Legos or enjoying the great outdoors with her two little dudes, she is working alongside the greatest dedicated growers and grocery retailers to educate shoppers and raise funds for children’s charities. As a working mom and passionate home chef, she knows the time crunch and pushback that parents face at meal time. Her passion is in providing great recipes, solutions and tips to make home life a little easier and healthier.

A Note from Lesley:

I am very excited to be part of the Healthy Family Project to share my passion about exercising as a family. Growing up, I was an athlete playing multiple sports and I always knew I’d like to carry that on into my adult life and with a family. There came a point where I found hurdles and roadblocks that I never expected to have.

Life is busy. Sometimes we aren’t getting the exercise we need into our busy schedules. I hope this podcast episode inspires you to get out and get active with your own family.

Don’t worry about the “uniform,” getting in 60 minutes or even finding a sitter. Have fun and know that exercise doesn’t have to look a certain way. There are no rules to being active!

From YouTube yoga to homemade ninja courses and more, Amanda and I are covering all the bases in this episode.

Please leave your questions, ideas or inspiration in the comments. I’d love to hear from you.

Enjoy the episode!
