As the London Olympics has swept the nation, more and more people have been influenced to get out and get them selves fit. There has been a surge of people joining gyms and putting their running shoes on for a daily jog.

Our pride for being British is growing as the Olympics goes on, with Great Britain winning plenty of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals and with the event taking place in out capital, even the people who wouldn’t usually be interested in getting into the Olympic games’ have found themselves drawn in. 

With successful Olympians becoming household names and heroes in many people’s eyes, more people are willing to go out and try what they see these talented athletes have achieved. Children discovering hidden talents they may not have realised they possessed and becoming possible Olympic athletes in the next games in 2016, is exactly what Britain is hoping will happen. This is what the Olympic Games’ is all about, discovering fresh and new talent.

With obesity growing in the United Kingdom, this sporting motivation could be just the push Britain needed to realise how unhealthy we have become. None of us want to see our children unhappy and getting them out and involved in exercise with you, or their friends will help their health and happiness. And you never know these children may become the next generation of successful athletes.

Bikes have made a huge come back in British culture, with parents and kids alike cycling to school and work more often. The Olympics may be to thank for that. Cycling is fantastic exercise and it’s fun too, so it takes the dread of exercising away. That dread many of us have when thinking about a daunting gym routine. 

The summer is the perfect time to be getting on the bike with the whole family in tow and enjoying not only a great ride but quality time. This is good exercise and will keep the whole family happy and healthy and that precious time that is so rare these days to spend with the whole family will be revived.

Teaching the littlest member of the family how to ride a bike is something every parent should take part in. It creates a tight parent and child bond, and the pride you will feel after they have learnt is priceless.

Bike rides, jogging or even joining the gym, we have to thank the Olympics for coming to our country and giving us back a sense of pride and motivation.
