Thule T2 Pro XT Platform Bike Rack: Hitch Up and Roll Out

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Biking, especially MTBing, is a special activity and fitness regimen of the Fit Fathers staff so it is no wonder that we spent almost every weekend this summer on single tracks. Now that an East Coast autumn is upon us there is probably no place more special than in the woods ripping trails while absorbing pure air and observing Mother Nature’s picturesque panoramas at high speeds. Refreshing, tranquilizing, and energizing is the equation I am always looking for when it’s time to hitch up and roll out. But of course you need a trusted rack to transport your precious cargo from A to B which in our case came in the form of the Thule T2 Pro XT premium, platform hitch bike rack. [Read more…]

Men’s Nike LunarEpic Flyknit 2: Run Free

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

It’s been a mild winter in Maryland with the first day of March being no different. Yet, as spring approaches I begin to transition back into full running mode after mountain biking, indoor spinning, and strength training during the colder months. So of course I was anxious to try out Nike’s new LunarEpic Flyknit 2 running shoe for men which I received in grey with the black swoosh along with a fresh, matching outfit. Launched in early February the 8.8-ounce shoe (size 10) currently lists for $160 at various retailers including Road Runner Sports. [Read more…]

The LEGO Batman Movie Review: Comedic Family Bonding

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Team Rawlins had a great time at a VIP screening of The Lego Batman Movie in Downtown Silver Spring, MD at the Regal Majestic Stadium 20 & Imax this past weekend. The comedic superhero feature was hilarious but simultaneously emotional as it touched on the meaning of family. I encourage all Fit Fathers to plan an outing with the kids next weekend and enjoy a day of bonding. Oh yeah, Batman (Will Arnett) kept it fitness focused with his abs of steel which actually saved the day! [Read more…]

Experienced by Adrian McQueen

As a parent one of the greatest bonding moments with your child is teaching him or her how to ride a bicycle. I am a Fit Father of a 1-year-old daughter and didn’t see this experience happening in at least another few years. Well, Strider decided to expedite the timeline with the introduction of their Rocking Base that attaches to the 12” Strider Balance Bike. Strider describes it as a bike with no pedals designed with only foot propulsion to educate kids on the fundamentals of riding. [Read more…]

Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones: Noise Cancellation Optimized

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

You could say I live in the friendly skies since hitting the 2-million mile mark on United Airlines at the ripe old age of 42. On average I commute through the air 200,000 base miles annually which sends me anywhere from Cambodia to San Diego. Of course globetrotters pack and bring along their true essentials during each journey like clockworks. My formula includes a Macbook Air so I can continue writing, a bag of trail mix, organic green tea, a few educational books and now a pair of laudable QuietComfort 35 (QC35) noise-cancelling, over-the-ear headphones. Trust me, you will be at peace (in style) mile high with a set of Bose’s latest sound innovation. [Read more…]

Strider Bikes Introduces Strider Rocking Base for Babies 12-24 Months

rocker_base_red_sport_right_anglew

Strider Sports Int’l., Inc., the world’s premier manufacturer and marketer of children’s no-pedal balance bikes, has identified an even younger group of potential bike riders – toddlers, ages 12-24 months, just learning to stand and walk.

According to Strider Founder and Chief Enthusiast, Ryan McFarland, “a baby who rocks becomes a future Strider rider! We all know babies enjoy rocking horses when they are small. The problem is that no child ever gets to graduate from the rocker and ride off into the sunset and experience the freedom that the Strider Bike can offer. This modular system that converts a rocker (for a baby) into a balance bike (for a toddler or young child) is one of the many unique values that our brand represents.” [Read more…]
