Styves Exantus on Fit Fatherhood

A Fit Father means being both the teacher and the student. One day my daughter stated, “you don’t know what it’s like as a kid!” We were in disagreement about a topic and that statement made a major imprint in my mind. I was born in 1983, my daughter was born in 2006 and my son was born in 2017. We will all experience different social trends, advancements in technology, job markets, education, etc. Now, my mindset is learning what it is like to be a kid in 2018 and help her be successful and create characteristics that will be impactful in today’s society. My son will go through a different world when he is 5, 10 and 15 than we all did. Specific moral codes will remain law but the way they move will change and vary differently in comparison to the generation before them.

As Fit Fathers we know that we are teachers, providers and protectors, but continuously learning about the world our kids are living in will be an ongoing journey. My children will look to me for guidance and I will look to them for understanding of the daily triumphs and tribulations they face. Together we will keep each other growing.

EJ Kaku on Fit Fatherhood

When I ponder on what it means to be a Fit Father I think of the word “serve.” Serve, like “love” has so many connotations such as being present when your children take their first step. Other shining examples include offering words of wisdom, taking care of them when they are ill, holding them tightly during hard times and celebrating during good times. Fathers offer so much value within the family structure, yet the greatest asset for each is to be a shining example.

When we serve we are setting the bar high in a positive manner and that is what leaders do. Being a great leader for your family will do so much for your children. You may not know it but they watch everything that we do and strive to be just like us. Leading by example will allow them to carry your life lessons into their own character traits.  Yes, every dad should be a leader and a server.

Young Vegan Cyborg speaks on Plant-Based Nutrition and Daily Fitness

Sometimes the wellness inspiration comes from our seeds. For example, 11-year old Kaiyana Rawlins — the daughter of Fit Father’s founder Kimatni D. Rawlins — breaks down her love for sports, why she feels good on a daily basis, where energy for her four activities comes from (soccer, basketball, competitive jump rope and volleyball) as a vegan kid and minor challenges she faces amongst her peers. She also runs in between strength training and eats cruciferous green veggies like candy. So remember, always eat clean, stay active and continue to energize your life!

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!
-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.
