Fit, Entrepreneurial Kids prepare for Fit Fathers Day

Fit_Kids_Fit_Fathers_Bikes_Fitness

In preparation for Fit Fathers Day, which the kids are helping produce and manage, we sent them on assignment to drop invites in every mailbox of their neighborhood. A few councilors followed behind on foot while everyone collectively received a good workout. We knocked out 3.5 miles together and promoted the event simultaneously as they rode door to door handing out flyers. Afterwards fresh, organic watermelon, bananas and strawberries were waiting patiently for consumption. Lastly, the Fit Fathers management team taught the kids how to write and submit an invoice for payment. For more information on the father focused event please visit www.FitFathersDay.com.

Take the “Fit Fathers Day” Pledge

It’s important on Father’s Day and each subsequent day that dads and male role models spearhead this call to action by taking time out to engage in physical fitness and employ healthy food choices with their families. It is a fact that health risks are increased in men 20 years and older, and with added stress and more responsibilities a father is at a higher risk of various potential problems. So keep in mind that exercising and healthy eating saves generations.

Become a Fit Father by following these simple steps to lead your family to a healthier lifestyle.

I pledge to become a Fit Father and will …

  • attend my doctor’s office for routine checkups and screenings.
  • exercise 3 to 5 days a week for 30 to 45 minutes minimum and include my children in most fitness activities.
  • eat 3 to 7 pieces of fruit and veggies daily.
  • drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily.
  • limit or eliminate sodas, candy and pastries entirely.
  • limit or eliminate fried foods entirely.
  • limit or avoid carcinogens entirely: smoking, drugs and heavy alcohol.
  • replace enriched white foods with whole grains (quinoa, brown rice, etc.)
  • Never eat with less than 3 hours in-between bedtime.
  • spend quality time with my children daily.
  • on Father’ Day enjoy one hour of energetic activities with my loved ones such as a 5K to 10K run, family bike ride, soccer, hiking, ball games, swimming or a simple walk through the park with nature.

Stay active, eat well and energize your life!

Health, fitness, nutrition and overall wellness are priorities for the extension of life. We must eat whole foods from the earth daily to achieve the balance of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients our bodies need. In addition, appropriate nourishment helps us function properly, perform sustainably and effectively fight off the onset of degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and more. Regular exercise is required to maintain muscle mass, strengthen bones, balance blood sugar, stabilize weight, circulate blood and regulate the metabolism.

For this reason cornerback Jason McCourty of the  NFL’s Tennessee Titans has pledged with Fit Fathers to continue steering his family towards proper health and nutrition. “Becoming a Fit Father has completely changed my life, everything I do I know my little princess will be watching,” McCourty states. “Staying fit and eating healthy will allow me to watch her grow into a beautiful, strong woman. It’s important to develop the habits “now” of a healthy lifestyle that will impact my entire family for decades to come.”

Jason McCourty is a starting cornerback for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Titans in the 6th round as the 203 overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft. He played college football at Rutgers University with his twin brother Jason McCourty of the New England Patriots.

Jason and Devin McCourty were football standouts at Rutgers before moving onto the NFL where they are both currently starting defensive backs. Devin is a safety and team captain for the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots while Jason is a cornerback and team captain for the Tennessee Titans. The twins were both recently recognized for their work on and off the field as they were both named “Walter Payton Man of the Year” by their respective NFL teams. “We have seen first hand the devastating effects of sickle cell on family members and we are choosing to use our platform to help families in similar situations,” said Jason. “This is something very personal to us and we’re thrilled to continue working with Embrace Kids Foundation,” added Devin.

Their work in the field of chronic disease awareness continues on Saturday, June 20, 2015, where the McCourty twins will be hosting the 3rd Annual Tackle Sickle Cell 5K Run/Walk in Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. This event is the major fundraising component of the Tackle Sickle Cell Campaign. The Run/Walk is for all ages and will be followed by a celebration including music, food and fun at the park. Jason and Devin McCourty will be joined on this day by fellow members of the NFL and Rutgers football community.

So remember, eat clean, stay active and continuously energize your life!
