Travel Fitness: Fit Fathers in Monterey for Cali Roots

Welcome to Monterey, CA for the “Cali Roots” Memorial Weekend reggae festival. But, before we headed over to the Monterey Fairgrounds the team worked out with top effort. First was a 30-minute strength training session in the Hyatt’s “Stay Fit” gym, then a 3-mile run around the 22-acre property and finished up with wind sprints in the courtyard. Plus, the crew will walk a mile to the concerts, traverse the grounds for hours and finally walk back to the hotel. This is easy work when you eat nutritious whole foods daily, drink water over sugary drinks, exercise on most days and maintain overall positive vibrations. Lead by example my people. One Love!

Meet Fit Fathers Founder Kimatni D. Rawlins

Kimatni_Rawlins_White_House_Fit_FathersThe proud father of two young girls, Kimatni D. Rawlins founded Fit Fathers to inspire other men to lead the charge in prioritizing healthier eating and exercise to enhance the lives of themselves and their families. Despite a deeply athletic background that included playing running back for the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Rawlins, like so many others, had succumbed to an increasingly inactive lifestyle and after getting back on track created the educational website, www.FitFathers.com, to help other dads do the same.

Today Rawlins leads an extremely active lifestyle that includes competing in track meets, marathons, 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons and urbanathlons in addition to training private clients looking to make similar positive life changes. Incorporating strength training, plyometrics, running, sprinting, boxing and yoga into his own daily workouts and opting for such family activities as cycling, hiking and swimming, Rawlins, who is also a clean vegan, believes that fitness and nutrition fuel positive health habits for himself and his family and thrives on the motto: “Eat well, stay active and energize your life!”
