Let me tell you my story.

I started bodybuilding in 2003 after moving to Hawaii with my wife. I was desperate to get back into shape after studies, work, and a good life distracted me from fitness. I didn't feel or look as good as I did when I was playing organized sports in college. I became passionate about fitness and motivated to take back my fitness and health when I saw a flyer in the window of a health food store for The Paradise Cup Bodybuilding Championships while I was on a sales call. Even though the competition was 5 weeks away and I had never done any bodybuilding before, I knew I had to enter. The trainer I had been referred to thought I was crazy, but he gave me expert and ongoing advice, which I followed to the T. I ate what he told me to eat. I did cardio and lifted weights the way he told me to. I went to a tanning salon even though I have a dark complexion, because he told me to. This was the forerunner to online training. I was dedicated. Lo and behold, I won first place in the novice heavyweight division of the Paradise Cup Bodybuilding competition, despite the naysayers and the doubters. Thank heavens my wife was very supportive. He won the Sting Ray Classic and the Kona Classic bodybuilding competitions in Hawaii that year, as well as placed in the top ranks of other competitions in the USA.

We All Have Our Pivot Points.

Why, after years of personal success and coaching family and friends - including strangers in elevators - did I decide to start For Fathers fitness? The moment that changed for me was when my wife and I were driving back from a trip to Los Angeles. She got a call from her cousin and he told her that one of his friends - who we also were friends with - had just had his foot amputated. What's the score here? Did he have an accident? I just remember the news hitting me like a ton of bricks. It didn't have to happen. It could have been prevented. I have worked in the pharmaceutical and fitness industry for many years and have seen that diabetes can be controlled through lifestyle and diet changes.

For Fathers Fitness is Born.

The benefits of starting For Fathers Fitness today will last for years. What supplements and fitness plan do you have? I will help you with that. Although you may not be in the best shape of your life, you can still achieve a great physique after the age of 40. Yes, as we age, we are more likely to gain abdominal fat, our bones may become thinner, and we may lose muscle tone. At rest, our metabolism can slow, blood pressure will rise, and the number of heartbeats will be higher. For Fathers Fitness accountability coaching, nutrition guidance, and supplements address issues such as these and more. Our coaching program and supplements are designed for you whether your goal is to build six-pack abs, lose belly fat, regain strength after an illness, or all of the above.

Think About Your Goals.

Don't worry if they sound too ambitious. It is usually worth it to have big plans! For Fathers Fitness coaching can help you make these goals a reality. I have experience with setting and achieving big goals. I want to share my tips and experience with you so that you can also achieve great things and enjoy your best health after 40. You have to make health your first priority. If you are healthy, you can work better and achieve more success at your job because you will be strong, relaxed, and focused. If you exercise and eat right, you can devote more time to your family and help your children develop good health habits. Creative endeavors such as art, music, or writing, as well as religious or spiritual activities, will require more of your time and focus when you are feeling better.

Giving Your Kids The Gift of Healthy Habits is The Best Kind of Parenting.

I parent by setting an example of the behavior I want my kids to develop. People need to back up their words with actions if they want children to believe them. I believe that "Generational Health" is the best legacy to bestow upon your loved ones. My healthy lifestyle choices inspire others to do the same.

Just In Case You Think I’m Resting On My Laurels? 

The saying goes that those who can't do, coach. That is not me. I coach myself and my family using the same principles that I teach to others. I prevent my clients from making the same mistakes and losing time towards their goals that I have already experienced. I have developed many methods over my 20 years of experience that are proven and effective, and they benefit from all of them. When life happens, I've got you covered. I have a lot of experience with the different things that life has to offer. This year, I broke the Guinness World Record for the heaviest total weight for dumbbell curls in one minute. I am confident that I will break the pull-up record next year.

Yes, I’m still at it! 

In 2022 I turned 45 years young. I have maintained my muscle mass and overall fitness for nearly 20 years. You may achieve similar success as me by following the right program, using the right solutions and supplements, and having a fitness coach. I would like for you to join me. Click the link. Give me a call. I'll always be here for you. Do not hesitate or make any more excuses. You must make the time or bad health will take your time. You have nothing to lose except the weight, and everything in the world to gain.
