Fitness guru Hilaria Baldwin is working to pass down her passion for healthy living to her children.

The mom of four recently shared a post of herself working out while using her son Leo as weight. For instance, the toddler can be seen on her back as she does push-ups and various stretches.

My found moment workouts sometimes include a little workout buddy ❤️! Teaching my babies through example to stay active is very important to me. This one is great for your core, butt, backs of legs, and arms! Remember to hold your abs strong. Hold the first for a count of 5 breaths. Then do 5 reps of each of the rest of the exercises…even if you don’t have a baby to do this with, it’s still good ?! I’ve recently partnered with @stitchfixkids because I love how they are promoting fitness for children and adults through their clothing…they just launched their exclusive Rumi + Ryder active wear line for kids. Makes my babies feel like little mini-me…it’s the cutest thing! #ad

However, this isn’t Baldwin’s first time encouraging parents to be active with their children. Not long before this post, the author shared another fitness clip featuring Leo again and her daughter Carmen.

So many of us look at exercise like a chore…something we are glad we did, but so happy that it’s over. Teaching my children that movement is fun and can feel good in the moment is one of my biggest focuses as their mother. We are silly…we make poses up…and it doesn’t even matter. Try this with your family: everyone take turns shouting out an animal, favorite toy…food…whatever and we interpret that. It is super fun and gets us moving and connecting with our bodies. There are no real "shoulds" and "shouldn’ts"…just good old fashioned fun. This for us embodies the joy of being alive. I have recently teamed up with @stitchfixkids and love their Rumi + Ryder’s activewear. It is fun, lightweight, and allows then to move comfortably. As you can see: Carmen went all out in putting together her outfit ? and Leo is obsessed with this “dinosaur” (it’s and iguana) eating a fly ?. I love this brand for making my children and me happy and I love Stitch Fix for being an amazing and accessible resource…bringing us all together #ad ❤️

According to “Nationwide Children’s,” parents should dedicate around two to three days each week to for the family. Furthermore, the activities, whether indoor or outdoor, should last around 30 to 60 minutes.

The activities can include things like bowling, dancing, walking the dog every day, or volleyball.
