HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

 

Whether they’re sharing about their journeys, hurdles, or motivations, our community never fails to inspire us. Today, a few of the Kaged dads share how they blend family and fitness in their daily routines.

It’s never too late to treat Dad. Whether he’s a hardcore fitness dad or a dad who rocks the dad bod - find the perfect gift to make his day.
 



How do you balance being a dad and
achieving your fitness goals?

I like to do my cardio, stretching and abs early in the morning before my kids wake up so I can still have that valuable time in the morning with them which means I can’t hit that snooze! Meals are prepped before the kids wake up. Also, I try to look for opportunities to make fitness a family activity by doing things like hiking, biking and playing sports with the kids.

It takes lots of planning and sacrifices for sure. Each day depends on what activities my girls have. Training times change most days but I try to be the most present father I can.

Being a dad is the biggest responsibility I’ll ever have. That said, my wife and I are both very much into keeping fit and healthy (me as a PT business owner and Men’s Physique competitor and my wife as a marathon runner) so we work together to allow each other to stay on track and hit the gym or go for a run. You have to make time for your children and do right by them and if you’re committed to your goals, you won’t let them slip, while maintaining a healthy family environment.

Having a 1 year old, we just try to give him a wide variety of different healthy foods and get him outside as much as possible. He sees us eat well and we go for daily walks as a family, with our dogs. It’s non-negotiable, so hopefully he sees the healthy habits we do (he also has a baby kettlebell and dumbbell toy set).

DO YOU INSTILL FITNESS IN YOUR KIDS?
IF SO, HOW DO YOU INSPIRE YOUR KIDS TO
INTEGRATE FITNESS INTO THEIR LIFE?

DO YOU INSTILL FITNESS IN YOUR KIDS? IF SO, HOW DO YOU INSPIRE YOUR KIDS TO INTEGRATE FITNESS INTO THEIR LIFE?

I think of it more like incorporating an active lifestyle in them. I never want my kids to feel pressure to do any kind of formal exercise. Kids can achieve all the fitness they need through activities like sports, playing outside, hiking, biking, wrestling with Dad, etc. In regards to food, we don’t make any restrictions on what they can or can’t eat. We just like to encourage healthy habits by making meals that are higher in protein, whole food centered, and made with love.

I definitely instill fitness in their life the best way I know how and that is leading by example. Showing them my commitment to my health going to the gym or running. I keep them involved in a few activities including swimming, gymnastics, and dance. Also, I try to keep active with them outside as much as possible. There is constant teaching on the value of discipline so they can work up to their goals of being an Olympic swimmer and Olympic gymnast.
