During the pandemic, many parents took on the role of teachers. 42-year-old Jeremy Bodenhamer (Jeremy Bodenhamer) has had more work than ever since he was the sports educator for his three sons. Last year, youth sports were interrupted, and parks and playgrounds were closed. The CEO of packaging and transportation software company ShipHawk began to lead his boys to exercise in the family garage.
Mr. Bodenhamer, who lives in Goleta, California, said: “My boy likes to go to school, but he hates Zoom school. PE takes away the advantage and saves energy.” Mr. Bodenhamer and his wife Bethany Bodenhamer, they are a local one. The student deans of all high schools are enthusiastic CrossFitters and have always encouraged their boys to become active. The 9-year-old Titus plays baseball. The 8-year-old Solomon likes hockey and running. The 6-year-old Jeremiah loves basketball very much. He watches Stephen Curry̵
In the morning, Mr. Bodenhamer takes the children for a run or leads them for short exercises. When they finished the distance learning course, they saw Dad in the garage to exercise. Ms. Bodenhamer also joins occasionally to make it a family affair. These boys posted exercise and fitness challenges on their Instagram account @heartandhamer, hoping to inspire other kids to stay active. Last fall, these boys raised funds through the GoFundMe campaign, so they can buy 700 skipping ropes and give them to local elementary school students.
Mr. Bodenhammer said: “I try to tell boys that fitness is more than just strong muscles.” “We talk about life lessons, such as goal setting and internal and external strength building.”
