It is great to exercise not only with other people but as a family!
Although it is of course not mandatory, PEO is designed in a way that allows family members to work together to reach their fitness goals. It is beneficial and fun for students to work with others in reaching their goals.
Exercising as a family can also help the student develop a positive connotation towards exercising rather than seeing it as a chore or an unpleasant activity. According to Web MD, “family activities and fitness at an early age can go a long way toward helping children form healthy habits for life”. PEO is a great way for families to create a healthy and positive lifestyle together. Another great benefit of exercising as a family is a bond that is created in relationships through working through challenges together.
