These days, it seems like everyone is trying to live a healthier, fitter lifestyle: men, women, parents and babies, too.
While this yoga instructor mom was preparing for her daily fitness routine, she realized that she wasn’t the only athletic one in her family.
Dana McGowan propped herself onto her hands and feet, stabilizing her core in a plank exercise while facing her 6-month-old son, Rowan. He was layingacross from her, looking up to study what she was about to do.
Suddenly, little Rowan pushed his tiny body up onto his hands and toes, just like mom.
In the video below, posted on February 23, 2017, the determined boy matches his mom’s plank exercise with impressive form as Dana chants, “Up! Ooh, good job!”
She continues to keep a steady position and coaches Rowan by saying, “Good plank, buddy. Pull that core in tight! Good job, keep going!”
Dana and Rowan were the ultimate workoutbuddies, not losing sight of their goal. Soon, Dana was stunned by how long her son was holding the position and made sure to let him know how proud she was of him.
“Keep going, monkey! Oh my goodness!” she giggles and tells her baby. “Pull those abs in. Go, go, go!” She then compliments her boy by saying, “You are amazing!”
As the pair continued their difficult pose against the clock, it became clear that little Rowan would have a future in fitness, or at least planking.
To see just how long Rowan commits to this plank exercise, check out the video below it’s pretty amazing.
