It was recognizably for infants, and to help those parents struggling to work out while dealing with a child
I was shocked to find out that I was a father. I was hit even harder to find out that my ex, who had never told me about the kid in the first place, was now in jail. In the space of 5 hours my entire life changed. I learned that I was the sole guardian for a 2 year old girl. Of course I wanted to do the right thing and take care of her, I was just unsure on how I could go about doing that! I had never considered being a parent before, and now it was thrust upon me. My job at the gym was genuinely accommodating, but there was only so much they could do. I was fortunate they kept me on staff as a personal trainer while both of us were in this adjustment period, because my hours of availability were changing every day! My boss at the gym called me up with an idea, after she had come back from an industry convention. She said that there are some gyms around the country that offer workout classes involving parent and child together. It was recognizably for infants, and to help those parents struggling to work out while dealing with a child. This was perfect for me! I told the owner of the gym that I would start putting together a workout program based on that idea. I am still in the process of putting together the perfect workout program, however it is something I can do together with my infant, so that makes it kind of fun.
