2019 Toyota RAV4: The Adventuring Family Ride

I had an amazing time in Carmel Valley, CA with Fit Fathers and Automotive Rhythms exploring the attributes of the 5th generation 2019 Toyota RAV4 while enjoying wilderness activities such as trail running and meditating with Mother Nature from the exquisite grounds of Carmel Valley Ranch. Representing as Toyota’s best seller, the CUV’s edgier exterior styling is pretty prolific while featuring a new grille, higher clearance, wider body, Dynamic Torque Vectoring, panoramic moonroof and much more. Inside you’ll find added legroom, unique trim highlights, soft touch materials, Verizon WiFi connectivity and an upgraded JBL premium 11-speaker, 800-watt audio system with Clari-Fi sound restoration technology and A-pillar horn tweeters.

This Monday, Have Family Fun with Four Easy Mini-Exercises!

Exercising together makes your whole family stronger! There are many quick and easy exercises everyone can do to stay fit together. This Monday, we’ll give you a few to start so you can continue throughout your week. It’s time to get moving with your whole crew! Not only is your exercise regimen good for you, but it may also be good for your family members. Research has found that if one person in the family starts exercising, others are more likely to join in. To ignite your Monday and accommodate all fitness levels, we’ve come up with four mini-exercise ideas for the whole family to enjoy.

Monday Mile  Do a Monday Mile! Map out a round-trip mile from your front door. All you need is a pair of sneakers! Depending on your fitness levels, you can walk or jog.

Yoga Anywhere, Anytime Try a short sequence together. Yoga builds flexibility, mobility, strength, and addresses many muscle groups. Use core yoga postures like downward dog, tree, and child’s pose. Yoga will surely bring some smiles. Do yoga in bedin a chair, or on a yoga mat!

Charity Walk Is there a cause that stands out for your family? Pick a charity and train for an upcoming run/walk event. This is a great opportunity to cheer each other on, build togetherness, and do good!

Family Repetitions Strength training is a key component of overall fitness. To accommodate all fitness levels, use soup cans or weights to get strong together. Grab the weights to work your arms, legs, and back. In the living room or backyard, have your crew do repetitions of bicep curls, lunges, and finish off with some squats. Bring it all together with a smile!

Your best fitness partners are sitting across from you every day at the dinner table! Move It Monday encourages families all over the world to kick off the week with exercise. We’d love to hear from you! Share your ideas with us on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram.

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe: Fit Family Focused

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

As I traversed the steep, rocky trail — which seemed to continue perpetually — while gazing upward into the sky I realized that this Korean SUV was manhandling the obligatory task of reaching the top of the hill like it were a Wrangler or Rover. Has Hyundai’s best-selling SUV, now its 4th generation, truly inherited that much bravado from the prior generation? Is the automaker’s HTRAC AWD system with an electronic, variable-torque-split clutch and torque vectoring for front to rear and left to right traction really that substantive in various driving scenarios such as high-speed cornering? Well, it surely felt so as the 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe anticipated wheel slippage and reacted immediately for an engaging experience which is a necessity for fit families heading toward the heart of the wilderness.

With that in mind Hyundai chose an ideal city to host the national media event for the newfangled utility. So welcome to Park City, Utah, home of the renowned Sundance Film Festival, impeccable ski resorts, active lifestyles and lovers of everything serene and beautiful. The fresh air, mountain views and scores of adventure sports such as mountain biking created the perfect env [Read more…]

Fox 5 Fitness for the Family: Fit Fathers & Kids Being Fit for a Healthier Generation

Fit_Kids_Fit_Families...014It was a beautiful and energetic morning in Washington, D.C. for a cadre of dads and their beautiful and active kids. Why? Because Fox 5 invited Fit Fathers and Kids Being Fit in studio for a poignant news segment discussing family fitness and nutrition in support of Global Youth Service Day in partnership with The Alliance for a Healthier Generation.

Fit Fathers’ Kimatni D. Rawlins spoke about the need for parents to become more focused on foods that heal and provide energy for children and to say no to foods of mass destruction such as sodas, fast food, and processed meals. Good eating in combination with active living is a precursor for long-term, positive health. As expected, Rawlins demonstrated a micro Social Workout with Fox 5 anchor Wisdom Martin and the gang of kids and parents that were invited including Kyle Aye, Leon Brittain, Cody Evans and Phil Lozano. The kids were super-excited and enthusiastic all morning long. [Read more…]

Family Focused Fitness Routines

Kimatni_Fit_Fathers.JPGFit Fathers are always finding creative angles to involve their kids into daily fitness routines. Now is the time to set the example of what healthy living is all about. In fact, it becomes no surprise that the child will soon become the motivator.

Children are like robots, they emulate everything their parents do. If dad eats burgers and fries, the child will eventually begin requesting burgers and fries. If mom runs 3 miles every other day it can be very much assumed that her son or daughter will consequentially pick up the running bug. So the mission is to establish a foundation based on continuous positive actions that showcase the lifestyle of an active, energetic and healthful family. Such examples include: [Read more…]

Female Friendly Fitness

 Fit_Family_Workouts_Fit_Fathers........15Fit Fathers, it’s no secret that a family that exercises together stays together. However, sometimes we get so worked up and full of testosterone that we forget about the female counterparts in our lives. Some dads may even leave the kids with the sitter in favor of a 1 to 2-hour power session. Yet, why not include your wife, girlfriend or mother for that matter in some of your exercise routines. Lead by example and show them why fitness is so crucial to your healthy lifestyle. At the end of the day you want everyone in the household running around as energetic as yourself. Correct?
