“Look guys…finally meeting @chandler_king_ in Houston. What a little beast,” wrote Arias on her Instagram post. “Our kids are a reflection of the environment they are in. I’m not sure what’s your reason for getting fit, but if you’re a parent, that’s enough motivation to become your kid’s biggest role models.”
Among her 171K Instagram followers, King there are some that have expressed concern that such extreme training is inappropriate for a young girl.
“Children should focus their attention on playing and discovering the world, not on getting fit…” one person commented.
“To each his own. In my opinion, a 6 pack for a child is too much, but everyone has a right to do whatever they want with themselves and their children,” said another.
