Vacation_Fitness_Fit_Fathers_Kimatni_Rawlins...13“Oh no, you don’t supposed to be exercising in the gym during island vacations,”said the beach bum heckler. “Ha, you must not know the Fit Fathers sacred life enhancement code,” we replied. Eat clean, keep active and continuously energize your life. So scat while we build muscle from fat!

Vacation Fitness in Aruba


As we always say, “vacations are to relax the mind, not the body.” So the first morning of an Aruban getaway we hit the pavement to run free for 4 miles through the hustle and bustle of the Dutch island’s Capital city of Oranjestad. Furthermore, each ¼-mile the team knocked out 25 push ups and 25 dips for a total of 400 each in addition to hopping over a segment featuring 200 meters of cement barriers. Ye, it felt amazing as usual. Swiftly afterwards we were able to reward ourselves with a big fat vegan grub and sunbathing on Palm Beach. Remember, “No Excuses!” is a Fit Fathers mantra.

Fit Fathers “Santa Monica Muscle Beach” Workout

Fit_Fathers_vs_Santa_Monica_Muscle_Beach.....11Santa Monica Muscle Beach was made famous by the godfather of physical fitness himself, Jack LaLanne. Since the outdoor jungle gym was directly across from our hotel during a business trip to California it only made sense to get physical for an hour in the sand with fellow Fit Father Cyejuan Cj Washington from Evolve. The routine included Plyometrics, sprints, knee tucks, abs, core work, dips, push ups, sit ups, rope climbing and much more! Three sets of 15 per exercise made for a magnificent workout while inhaling fresh ocean air from the Pacific! We also found a few other Fit Fathers igniting their kids for future success in the sporting department.
