Abstract This study investigates whether more physically active parents bring up more physically active children and whether parents’ level of physical activity helps children achieve step count recommendations on weekdays and weekends. The participants 388 parents aged 35–45 and their 485 children aged 9–12 were randomly recruited from 21 Czech government-funded primary schools. The participants recorded pedometer step counts for seven days ≥10 h a day during April–May and September–October of 2013. Logistic regression Enter method was used to examine the achievement of the international recommendations of 11,000 steps-day for girls and 13,000 steps-day for boys. The children of fathers and mothers who met the weekend recommendation of 10,000 steps were 5.48 95% confidence interval: 1.65; 18.19; p < 0.01 and 3.60 times, respectively 95% confidence interval: 1.21; 10.74; p < 0.05 more likely to achieve the international weekend recommendation than the children of less active parents. The children of mothers who reached the weekday pedometer-based step count recommendation were 4.94 times 95% confidence interval: 1.45; 16.82; p < 0.05 more likely to fulfil the step count recommendation on weekdays than the children of less active mothers.
