2017 Fit Fathers Day Celebration: Lead by Example

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!
-Roberto Tapia, Capoeira Instructor

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.

Five Healthy Tactics To Celebrate Father’s Day

Kimatni D. Rawlins, Fit Fathers

It’s no enigmatic secret that Father’s Day clearly doesn’t bring the excitement and allure in relation to the celebratory activities that mothers receive on their day of recognition. Which is fine because mothers are the foundation of human existence. Their 9-month nurturing alone holds enough weight to debate any philosopher on the comparative subject matter. Nevertheless, I would like to see additional efforts put forth on everyone’s part to strengthen the acknowledgment towards this special observance day for dads and the families they support.
