This episode will give you a solution on how to properly incentivize and educate your kids to do daily tasks around the house to help instill structure and organization within your house.

What feelings do you get when I say the words school mornings or school nights? For me, I feel anxiety, stress, and complete exhaustion! Last school year, our family was really struggling with establishing routines during these times of day. We needed something that really worked and incentivized our kids to want to work with us, and not against us. So we did some research on Pinterest and other blogs for help. What we found was that though there is a lot of information out there, nothing seemed specific enough for us to devise a plan that fit our family’s needs. So we ourselves went to the drawing board. Enter Real IronDAD Cool Coins.

This week we are talking fitness, but not any type of fitness...smart fitness. Andrew Noble is my guest today and he is the owner of Smart Fitness, which is located just a few miles away from me in the city of Ocoee, FL. Of course if you live locally you should check him out, but I wanted to bring Andrew on the show to pick his brain about his fitness thoughts. I love talking to trained professionals about fitness, so I hope you walk away with a bit of knowledge and that Andrew motivates you to go try his gym or get out there on your own to improve your fitness...because being fit has to start with your willingness to get out there and move.
