The family fitness revolution began with the launch of fitness equipment at the beginning of the 20th century.
But when the first family members began to follow suit, the trend quickly took off.
As the number of families who could afford to buy their own fitness equipment grew, so did the number who wanted to make it their life’s mission to improve themselves through a program.
Today, there are over 10 million people who own fitness gear in the U.S., and that number is projected to increase to more than 30 million by 2025.
While the trend is still in its infancy, some families are now starting to understand the benefits of this new fitness crave and are experimenting with their own personalized programs.
“It’s been really good to see the families who are doing it right, the moms who are making it a lifestyle,” says Liza Ritter, a fitness educator at Texas Family Fitness Center in El Paso, Texas.
“There are so many different ways they can make their family more fit and more healthy.”
The families are also learning how to incorporate a variety of different fitness equipment into their routines.
The majority of fitness gear is sold in the same box, but some families choose to customize their own equipment to suit their individual needs.
For example, many families may want to wear a new, custom-made running shoe for their workouts, or an extra pair of socks for a workout in the backyard.
“They want to take this and add it to their routine, but they also want to incorporate other equipment that is specifically designed to help them meet their specific needs,” says Ritter.
Here’s what you need to know about the fitness craves that are currently taking off in your area.
What’s the difference between a family fitness plan and a fitness program?
A family fitness program is an integrated program that includes exercise equipment, nutritional supplements, and even a yoga mat.
Families may choose to create their own workout plans based on their personal goals, such as “getting fit for my family or the day that I want to go out and see the world.”
Fitness equipment is sold individually at fitness centers, gym memberships, or fitness equipment rental companies.
For some families, there may even be a separate workout program for the entire family.
For others, the gym may only be used for private training sessions.
“The idea of a family gym is to get everybody in the house at once and have everyone work out together,” says Jessica Davenport, a certified personal trainer and director of education at Texas Fitness Center.
“With a family program, you have a lot of people working out at the same time, which can make things more fun.”
What’s a family workout program like?
The most common fitness equipment used by families in the United States is the gym.
There are several different types of gyms in Texas, and each is unique in its own way.
Fitness centers typically have one- to two-hour sessions where fitness equipment is provided for purchase.
There may also be a variety in the types of equipment used, including different types and styles of treadmills, treadmats, and elliptical machines.
In some cases, the equipment may be purchased online, while others may require a parent or adult guardian to sign up for a membership.

What types of fitness classes are offered at Texas family health centers?
The biggest obstacle to making a family health center a place where you can find a variety for your family to enjoy is the lack of access to the types and types of classes offered at fitness programs.
For those who choose to go to a fitness center, a lot depends on the type of fitness program they are planning on taking part in.
For the most part, it is not unusual to find a different type of class, like yoga, in each of the five fitness centers in the Texas area.
The class may be a yoga class, a run-up and yoga class or an elliptical class.
The type of activity you choose may also depend on your family’s age, health, and fitness level.
For families who want to make sure their kids are at least at an age where they are ready for the physical activity, they may choose a fitness class that is suitable for kids aged 6-10.
The kids in this class may also opt to take a short walk, bike ride, or run together with a family member who has a specific fitness level, like a runner or fitness enthusiast.
While fitness centers offer different classes for different age groups, they generally focus on different activities for older children and teens, who typically want to get their heart rate up.
If your child is a bit more challenging, you may find a group class that focuses on a single exercise such as a yoga or running class.
“This is the type that is usually a little more physical,” says Davenporter.
“We try to make the classes fun, so that parents don’t feel intimidated and
