It's easy for people to think that a fitness coach like myself has been fit all their lives or that's it's easier for me to get and stay fit.
And that's just not true. I know there a lot of men out there who can't really identify with me because they think I'm just some fitness guy who makes everything look easy and who has probably never struggled with his health and fitness.
My goal with the Fit Dad Nation is and always has been to help those dads who need it most; the guys who aren't commenting or sharing publicly but rather just lurking and listening.
The dads who don't feel confident enough to share their struggles or don't think they have anything important enough to share are the ones who need help the most.
So today I'm opening that door to you and sharing my back story of struggle in hopes that you can resonate with what I've been through and feel compelled to take action.
I didn't have it easy. I wasn't blessed with amazing genetics. I didn't play sports. I wasn't popular.
In fact, I was one of the dorkiest and most insecure kids you can imagine and if it wasn't for a small group of friends I had 25 years ago, I may have ended up as some recluse weirdo playing World of Warcraft in my mother's basement all my life.
Fortunately, my path turned out differently and it was from the sheer amount of self-work I've done over the years that's made the difference.
I hope this show sheds some light on where I came from and what I've had to go through to get where I am today. And I hope it inspires you to reach out to me and take action on taking back your health.
