the video that started it all

In 2016, Brent was doing regular family workouts in his living room with his two kids. His wife, Katie, decided to record some of the workouts and put a low quality video out on social media. Two weeks later, it had nearly 24 million views! Brent started getting calls from international news and media companies for interviews and TV appearances. As the months went by, they received countless emails and comments from families who said they were inspired by the family workouts. The most popular comment they got was “this is going to be my family when I have kids!” This feedback encouraged them to create a fun and colorful children’s book which shows just how simple it is to be active with your kids.
