Heart Healthy Love: The Exam Room podcast with Vegans Chuck Carroll & Kimatni Rawlins

Nike Air Max 97 = New Motivation

Motivation is always elevated when fresh athletic gear arrives. It increases your efforts, excites the senses, and makes you feel amazing. And when you feel good externally the energy is absorbed internally for a complete natural high. So far our new pair of Nike Air Max 97s, which hit the scene 20 years ago after being imagined from Japan’s bullet train, has led to a week of two-a-days from running and strength training to cycling and boxing. Instead of spending your loot on nonessentials like daily Starbucks runs, bar hopping, and jewelry invest in a pair of kicks and an exercise outfit that will help maintain your fitness goals. It’s a lifestyle people!

Jeep Lifestyles with the all-new 2018 Wrangler

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

When all hell hits the fan it would be in your best interest to posses the keys to a Jeep, preferably the 2018 Wrangler. The goal is to get away swiftly and discretely in a 4×4 with the versatility to triumph any terrain that leads to salvation. That’s probably what the armed forces thought 75 years ago. As the story goes Willys-Overland’s beat out Bantam and Ford in 1941 as the principle supplier of the U.S. Army’s 1,500 go-anywhere and structurally rigid reconnaissance vehicles. Later the world would come to know this quintessential 4×4 as the Jeep. [Read more…]

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Trust me when I say I didn’t mind the title of “minivan dad” over the holidays when we journeyed from Silver Spring, MD to Atco, NJ to spend the festive occasion with family and close friends back home. It’s a yearly tradition that convenes over 30 family members so you know the gift giving was a bit generous. Thankfully our testing of the 2018 Honda Odyssey Elite came at an opportune time for ultimate road trip convenience and comfort. Specifically, we needed special transport to secure four occupants and the 40+ gifts wrapped for family, friends, and a group of kids in need. No problem in the storage department! [Read more…]

Just BEETs by the Fit Fathers Crew

Like eating beets we make it cool getting fit and tossing chips in favor of abs that are ripped and cruciferous green veggies which help prevent sickness.

Yoga keeps the frame limber while “pull” and “push” ups harden muscles like timber, it’s a yearly wellness cycle from summer to winter.

Our founder Kimatni Rawlins is also known as K-Raw for a reason due to his habit of eating straight from the garden when organic fruits of choice are in season.

Pay homage to the Most High for positive vibrations and sun energy by encouraging the masses from indigenous nations to simply choose life over procrastination.

One Love!
