Welcome to the “Vegan Cyborg” Transformation

Vegan Power Story

My name is Kimatni D Rawlins and I’ve been a vegan since 2011. I Lost 50 lbs after the transformation and at age 44 I still have the majority of my speed and strength from my Georgia Tech Football running back days. I founded both Fit Fathers and Vegan Pro and run marathons, half marathons, urbanathlons, box, strength train, swim, mountain bike, cycle, hike, climb and everything else.

I’m free of any supplementation, only drink water, coconut water, and herbal decaf tea, eat 5 to 7 servings of fruits and veggies a day, do not cook with oils, and shy from processed vegan foods.

I am both alcohol free and smoke free and love reggae. I’ve flown 2.2 million miles globally to explore the diversity of the world and its rich plant-based foods and indigenous peoples. As I continue to evolve myself into a Vegan Cyborg only pure foods, thoughts and actions can enter my realm. Please join me if you’re looking for life everlasting change.

Life is for the living so please ascertain to eat clean, stay active and only feed your mind with pure, positive and enlightened thoughts that lead to purity and prosperity. The body is a temple so treat it as one.

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.

Damon Redmond on Fatherhood


Being a father is one thing, but living the lifestyle of a Fit Father means so much more when it comes to raising energetic and healthy children. We are proud to be a part of the Fit Fathers movement which empowers dads of all nationalities and ages to take part in healthier living. Spearheaded by Kimatni Rawlins, the fatherhood platform keeps me accountable in relation to my family and I exercising and making positive choices.

Fit-Fathers-Damon-Redmond-FatherhoodI teach my children the importance of knowledge of self, honesty, building strong connections with family and close friends and living a nourishing and productive lifestyle. Life is not just about working and taking vacations. There comes a point when we have to realize what our priorities are and the impact they have on everything else important to us.

As I mature and witness my son and daughter develop and grow, it has become central to pay close attention to my eating and exercise habits so that I will be around longer to enjoy quality time with them and friends alike.

Fit Fathers is the beginning of something much greater than what it is today and I am personally excited to be a part of the journey.

Stay Active My Friends!!

Meet John Engler: From Smoker to Runner

Fit_Fathers_John_EnglerWelcome to the newfound health promoting world of John Engler, an Austin, Texas father of two who recently quit smoking and took up running after his son Jack asked for help in learning how to run. John obliged and in the process of striding with Jack they collectively learned to love the energizing fitness activity. Pretty soon up to 12 neighborhood kids and two other dads became involved for evening runs on Mondays and Wednesdays. Way to go John, and please do keep us posted on this amazing group.

Question for readers: Have you ever thought about organizing a group like this in your neighborhood? Well, as Nike would say, just do it. You just might be surprised at how many individuals will want to get out and kick it with you! Remember, stay active, eat clean and continue to energize your life!

Fit Fatherhood defined by James Paul Swink and Family

James Swink and Family - Fit Father

When my wife showed me the Fit Fathers website and the 2015 Fit Fathers Day celebration in Silver Spring, MD, I was immediately on board. Fit Fatherhood is an inspirational platform to help fathers stay in shape for the health benefits and to keep up with their energetic kiddos as they grow into athletes. The website is full of nutritional eating tips, social workouts, healthy lifestyle ideas and fun family activities. Becoming a father is one of the most rewarding and challenging events of my life. My perspective on the world continuously changes as I try to be the best father I can to my two girls. It certainly helps tremendously by having such a loving and devoted wife as we raise these two rambunctious, beautiful ladies and adopt the Fit Fathers platform to our lifestyle! I applaud the founders for their inspiration and vision as they cultivate a friendly environment for all through their social outreach and events. Keep up the great work!
