Disney-Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Roberto Tapia on Fit Fatherhood

My fatherhood habits are a lifestyle, an expression of love that has a beginning but no end. It’s a choice we make for 24 hours. The path I chose to be a Fit Father requires more sacrifice than any career but is also far more rewarding since my love for my kids is unconditional. I wouldn’t change the circumstances for the world!

Fit Fathers Mentorship

Fit Fathers’ founder Kimatni D. Rawlins mentors numerous kids and teens across the country to help them face the complexities of society with simple but strategic solutions. To kick off Black History Month at the Washington Auto Show he brought a few football mentees from his daughter’s high school — Paint Branch in Silver, Spring — to the ART-of-Motion display so they could see how the fruits of their labor is manifested! Amede and Alphonse are smart, kind, hardworking, and passionate. So of course we have to do more to continuously motivate and direct our  young men and women. They are the country’s future leaders!

Take a Walk Through Nature

 

For the preservation of life spend time within Mother Nature as much and as often as possible. With technology that continues to replace basic humans skills we must escape the digital world to maintain purity of the spirit, physical prowess, and mental clarity. Moreover, we must choose plant-based foods that enliven the mind and body opposed to processed, engineered, and animal products that degrade and deteriorate the fabric of our framework. Aptly so, neurogenesis is stifled when toxins control your foundation. It’s a way of life folks, not a temporary solution.

Ivan Lovegren on Fit Fatherhood

Fatherhood means being there, being available, and letting your children know they can take chances because someone is in their corner.  I don’t always want to carry my sons. I want them to know I will be standing right next to them even when they slow down to a crawl. Giving the kids the support to get started and being present when they turn to you, even if they have to forge the way themselves, is what I believe defines a father. I hope someday my kids will return the parenting skills to their siblings.

Little Vegan Athletes: The Art of Jumping

Aya Rawlins is always showing off on the rope scene with her team aka the Greenbelt Sity Stars at community events including the recent Fit Fathers Day!

The 11-year old has been 100% vegan since 4 years old and is now is a top jump roper in just seven months on her double dutch team. They practice three to five hours a day on weekends and two hours during the week. This spring Aya was on four sport teams including Basketball, Jump Rope and two Soccer teams. Three times a week she went to tow practices back-to-back and on Saturdays jumped three to five hours then played in her soccer game right after. Sunday was another round of dual games.

Her main fuel was bananas, smoothies and brown rice. Welcome to the world of a vegan athlete!

Fit Father Devin McCourty of the New England Patriots

Fatherhood has been amazing to me so far and I look forward to raising my child and strengthening the family bond. From Fit Father and husband responsibilities to playing on the field for the Patriots I have always approached every task with top leadership qualities. It’s been a joy watching my little girl grow and shine in just this first month. I’m eagerly anticipating my obligations along the way while showing her how to be a great and honorable individual.

Indoor Rock Climbing

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

One of the greatest family oriented and exciting activities during the cold fall and winter months is indoor rock climbing. Not only does it present exercise and physical fitness challenges but also taps into your coordination skills. For a play date I recently visited Earth Treks Rockville with another Fit Father and our daughters who each had  a blast.

Since the girls are best friends it was a no-brainer that they would challenge one another with a bet at who could reach the top of the three walls we each scaled. One of the tricks to learn is to push off with your legs so you don’t overwhelm your upper body. But of course everyone was immediately sore from improper technique. Nevertheless the two-hour morning was energizing and increased our collective bond. Next time will we return with some training under our belt. Afterwards we took the girls to get smoothies to keep the healthful platform on deck.
