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.

Mazda Strengthens 2014 Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series Partnership

CHI_11_MoneyShot (email)I must say, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series is the most entertaining run series we have participated in to date. And since Fit Fathers also reviews the latest Auto Fit lifestyle vehicles, it only made since for us to run alongside the Mazda Game Changer team. We’ll be competing in the Virginia Beach Half Marathon on August 31st. Training has been fun and exciting as we have been trotting around the globe putting in miles including Jamaica, Florida, India, etc. Even more exciting is that Competitor Group, Inc.

Road Fitness

10428035_866571096690903_4415856232281027345_nGreat run with our traveling work buddies and fellow Fit Fathers before the work day began. One thing we never leave home without is a pair of running shoes and shorts. Automatically this gives us a better shot at exercising on the road. Especially when your companions also come prepared. There are no excuses in life, only the ones we self manifest.
