Fit fam + @albionfit

Ben and I have definitely put fitness at the top of the priority list for our family.  We were both extremely active growing up and want our children to be active in sports as well. Ben went to school to be a PE teacher, so his PE teaching tendencies often come out while teaching the kids and myself different exercises, workouts and games! You’ll see him in action a little below.

Fitness + Family

Ava, my eldest has been playing soccer since she was 3 and is now on a competitive team.  She plays anywhere from 2-3 times per week and absolutely loves it.  Her next venture is basketball which she is eagerly awaiting to get started.  Savannah (5) our second child has a big love for Acro and Gymnastics.  She is so strong it is crazy.  I try to imitate some of the things she does and I end up making an absolute fool of my self! Her and Judah (4) will begin soccer this fall as well.  Our lives are about to be (more) insane! Professional Taxi Driver here we come!

Ben plays soccer weekly and played rugby all the time until he got one too many concussions and I made him quit! I played soccer growing up but no longer play like the hubs! I am an avid-gym goer and love a good run, lift, spin class and boot camp!   I try to exercise 4-5 times per week.  Ben and I try hard to be an example to the kids with physical fitness.  Often times the kids would rather work out with us in the gym as opposed to going into the child care! Most weekends are spent on trails with our newest addition.  We love a good hike and a nice long walk, having a dog has forced us to get outdoors so much more.  Times like those are so special to me.

Below, the kids and I are wearing Albion Fit. They have the most comfy, soft and functional workout apparel.  They not only sell athletic wear but also sell swimsuits and have recently branched out into dresses as well.  I literally love EVERYTHING they sell.  Do your self a favor and check out the rest of the store Here!! Hope you are all having an amazing week so far! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

Much Love,

Ruthie xo

    What cute kiddos! I love to see kids running around outside… awesome role modelling!

    If you teach them young, it becomes second nature. What a great way to incorporate fitness as a family event.

    What a great post. This might be one of the most important thing a parent can influence a child in. I love how vibrant your kids look! Well done!!

    My kids would love those clothes. My kids play all sorts of sports too so only want to wear athletic gear.

    I love this! Your family is beautiful! Every little bit makes a difference. Our school is a “healthy zone” school so we are always challenging the kids to live an active, healthy lifestyle. It is families like yours that are already a step ahead. Way to go!

  12. Jess April 27, 2016 / 7:32 am

    Wow what great role models you both are!! That is so awesome! You kiddos are seriously the cutest ?

    Firstly, your children are absolutely beautiful. Secondly, thanks for sharing this! My little one is only 18 months old, but we are hoping to instill this ethic in him (and anyone else who may come along) too! I think its such a great example to set, and everyone benefits!
