Being a part of the Fit Fathers movement is something that I take great pride in. My children see the amount of time and effort I put into training and it rubs off and inspires them. They now try to emulate the things that they have seen me do whether it’s push ups, sit ups, boxing, jogging or simply training others.
I think they see me leading by example, and in turn, they began picking it up. Hopefully, by watching, it will benefit them firsthand as they carry it throughout their lives. It also provides them with many characteristics that some may not inherit until their teen years or later. My children will be equipped with the concepts of mental toughness, consistency, discipline, accountability, and hard work. I didn’t have the luxury of a father molding me into what I am today. When I look at my children I’m very grateful and blessed that I can be that example to teach them what I’ve always wished I had. The great thing is, one day they will be able to pass along what they’ve learned onto their kids. Knowing this is what makes be proud to be a “Fit Father.”
