Rad Dad Fitness started when I realized that after becoming a dad I wasn't making my health and fitness a priority. I was very much focused on our new baby boy Parker. At first I didn't notice how out of shape I was becoming, but by around month 5 I clearly had gained some weight (15 pounds!) and I was starting to notice little ailments here and there. My back started to hurt randomly, my knees were getting sore and I wasn't sleeping as well as I could have. And being a health professional for the last ten years, I was like "I need to figure this shit out!" I quickly realized that I was not practicing what I was preaching and I needed to make some changes. I was sure that other dads were having similar issues but when I did a quick google search I didn't find anything helpful. I found a lot of advertising to purchase programs, but nothing actually useful. A lot of what I found were fad diets and get fit quick schemes. This led to me creating Rad Dad Fitness. I want this to be a place where Dads can come for workouts, fitness guidance, science based nutrition, and all the good stuff that comes along with a great program! I'm just a dad trying to stay fit (who happens to be a personal trainer) so I can continue to grow and play with my children. Oh and by the way, that 15 pounds eventually grew to almost 30! So I needed this and I am both excited and proud to share this with you!
