Fitness Expert Danielle Jones And Her 2-Year-Old Daughter Honor Are The Best Workout Partners Ever

Every day is a good day for some fitspiration, and today’s motivation comes from Danielle Jones and her 2-year-old daughter, Honor:

The certified fitness professional has always been into health and fitness, playing sports in college and getting becoming a personal trainer following graduation. However, when the always health conscious beauty got pregnant with her daughter Honor, she put on 54 pounds and couldn’t find the time to take it off after giving birth.

“The weight gain never bothered me during my pregnancy,” Jones told Cosmopolitan, “but once my daughter was born, I would have moments of hating my body.”

Focused on breastfeeding her growing child, Jones found that when she started working out again and working out hard, her milk stores would dry up. Set on feeding her daughter in the most natural way, she put Honor first. Months down the line, as her daughter picked up solid foods and she felt comfortable allowing her to drink some formula, Jones got back to work.

She told the publication she was doing five workouts a week and in order to keep her metabolism revved up, Jones ate six meals a day. All of that was done at home as she kept an eye on her daughter, who was 10 months at that time.

“I would do it next to her while she was playing with her toys, and she would laugh,” she said. “I couldn’t wait for her to get to an age at which she could actually work out with me.”

Fast forward some time, and after a while, Honor found herself trying to pull off some of her mother’s moves, asking to hold on to pull-up bars and doing her best squats next to Jones. Eventually, Jones started encouraging her daughter, as Honor seemed to be gaining an affinity for working out with her mom. Now two years old, she’s cranking out some difficult moves like it’s nothing, including wall climbers and burpees. But before you assume she is working up quite the sweat alongside her mom and that all of this exercise is too much, Jones said that’s nowhere near the case.

“You may see her playing with two-pound weights, but she’s not lifting them, she’s playing, and it happens to be good for her,” Jones said. “Some days she’s very focused, and other days her dolls have to do all the exercises first.”

How cute are they? Not only has Honor helped her mom shed that post-baby weight in a serious way (check out those abs), but they’re spending some great quality time together doing something that is sure to encourage Honor to maintain healthy habits as she gets older. Check out some of their cutest videos together, and get some moves for the gym and inspiration from this mother-daughter team.

Don't worry that your children never listen to you; worry that they're always watching you 😳 Yesterday Honor really amazed me 😍 Never in a million years did I expect her to attempt to climb the wall. I didn't even ask her to do it. I was simply getting down and here she goes "mom look at me"! I didn't realize until watching later like always she had her doll do it first, then probably broke all Ariel's bones when she threw her 😂 I'm one proud Mom 💪🏽 not only is she amazing and raising her is like watching myself grow up all over again, but the way she looks out for me ❤️ #BeCarefulMom 🤗 She also doesn't mind wearing her wrap as long as mommy is as you can see 😂 #AllBetter #MommyAndDaughter #FitMom #FitBaby #BetterThanYesterday #BestSelf #BestWorkoutPartnerEver #Queen #Princess #MiniMe
