Meet The Coaches

Alim Shabazz

Founder

Hello there! I’m Alim Shabazz, and my mission is to help men who have lived life, want to regain their strength and form, or haven’t reached their health and fitness peak yet, and want to find out how. I founded For Fathers Fitness because I believe that every father deserves recognition and support. To help men over 40 achieve holistic wellness, we offer strategic and scientifically-proven fitness strategies, services, and products. I know you've seen and done things you never thought you could. To provide for your family. As a gift for your friends. You have nothing to prove and no one to convince, having survived and overcome. A veteran friend of mine once said: "Those who are important to me already know how I feel, and those who aren't will never know."
