A Texas mom is using her daughter’s head swipe thermometers to keep track of her son’s progress in the world of fitness, even if the devices don’t work well for him.
Trish Smith said she’s been using her son, Ryan, to track his progress since last November.
Ryan has been out of the pool for a few weeks, but Trish has noticed a drastic change in his fitness.
Ryan started swimming when he was 6, but it didn’t last long.
“The first few times, he’d fall over, but then he’d pick himself up and start swimming again,” Trish said.
He’s had to take swimming classes since then, but Ryan has improved every time.
“He’s done more and more in the pool,” Tris said.
“I’m really excited to see him get back to swimming again.”
Ryan’s progress has been so impressive that Trish recently started to look into his personal trainer, who specializes in strength training and weight loss.
Ryan was so happy to have her attention, Trish told the Today show, that he asked her to use his trainer’s equipment.
“She’s really excited that her son is doing so well,” Trs said.
Ryan is one of the many young people Trish and her husband have noticed.
“There are so many more kids out there who have not had this opportunity, but we’ve always said, ‘You know what, we’ve got to do something about it,'” Trish added.
“Ryan has been in the gym for six months and it’s amazing.”
Trish said she has noticed her son has started to notice progress, too.
“His head swipes are becoming a little bit more accurate,” Trisha said.
Trish says she is still unsure if she will keep Ryan swimming for a month or two.
“If it’s just a matter of time, we will get him swimming again, but right now it’s a matter.
I’m just so excited that he’s doing well and is making progress,” Trisch said.
Trisha and her son are also using Ryan’s thermometer to track what their son is eating and exercising.
“We’ve tried to keep him accountable by making sure he gets his nutrition and exercises and his workout routine,” Trisa said.
She said she is currently in the process of adding more features to her sons device, such as a head swipe and heart rate monitor.
“I really think this is going to help us,” Trica said.
