My 16yrs son been wanting to go to the gym, and build his body. Which surprised me really not into physical activity, into coding started college early wants a degree in Data Analytics.
Knows I go in at 2am, this kid is up a dressed ready to go. The first few weeks was a introductory session getting familiar with form and technique. Past few weeks watching him push himself, putting the work in so gratifying, saying how much he enjoys going with me. Getting his meals down frequent feedings. Just getting into the whole thing, and getting more confidence in himself. Nice to watch him grow into a man. If he progresses physically like he does in school... WATCH OUT!!!

That’s awesome Pooh! Very happy for you & I must admit I’m jealous. That’s not going to happen with my daughter. Oh well.

I got twins the other one, like his brother real nerdy and I mean that in a good way. Just like his brother started college early has a good bunch of friends no negative influence always welcome to hang out at the house. Know all the parents, good circle of friends. Both skinny, might get the other to train also if his bro gets bigger than him.. we'll see???

Congrats brother! It's awesome to hear/see when our kids take some initiative in themselves. Especially in today's world, where most kids get shit handed to them. Being fit and working in the gym is just that, WORK. Most kids can't handle it because it's not something that happens overnight. Sounds like a solid set of kids.

That’s awesome to hear! Congratulations! For me it was the opposite, my dad was the computer guy and never wanted to workout. I tried forever and then just gave up. Some people just love sitting in front of a computer.

That's how I got started over 20 years go. My dad took me to the gym one day and we never stopped. To this day, we still train together when I'm close by. He's the best and always will be my number one training partner.

Awesome bro! I think it's great when parents get their kids involved in training. I credit my whole lifestyle to my dad for bringing me into the bodybuilding and fitness world in my late teens. So many people I grew up with are in poor health and just generally out of shape. I'm so thankful to him everyday for teaching me.
