Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp

The Driven Dad Fitness and Nutrition Bootcamp


Why do many of us fathers neglect our health? There are two main reasons. The number one reason is guilt. We feel bad for taking time away from work and family to spend on ourselves. The second reason is money. We would have to spend more to eat healthier, join a gym, or hire a personal trainer.

But not making our health a priority is the biggest disservice to ourselves and our families.

In this episode, we have a panel discussion with Dr. Adrian Chavez of Your Nutrition Prescription and Chris Hughes from The Driven Dad. They have put together a fully-customized 8-week fitness and nutrition bootcamp for dads. We also talk to members Rashad and Mickey about what made this bootcamp unique and how it has transformed their health and their lives!

Most Effective Way to Reach Your Health Goals

The Most Effective Way to Reach Your Health Goals

Steve Birch weighed 250 pounds and was on cholesterol and blood pressure medication. At Thanksgiving, he realized he was sweating, not because it was hot, but because of his extra body fat. It got to the point that when he looked at family pictures, he was appalled at the sight of himself.

Now Steve is 30 pounds lighter, off his medication, and feels better than ever. How did he finally reach his health goals? With the help of the Dad Edge Alliance. Doing life with other likeminded men upped the accountability factor, giving him the motivation to stay on track on not give up.

Listen to how Steve Birch is becoming not only a better man and father, but a healthier one.

Being there for your family means taking care of your health. #dads #men #fathers #fatherhood #dadlife #dadbod #menshealth Click To Tweet

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body

The Realistic Way to Transform Your Body This Year with Josiah Novak

Probably the biggest thing we try to fix in the new year is our health. We set goals to lose weight and tone up, but we tend to fail year after year. Being in optimum shape is important to being a good father, husband, and man. If you listen to this show, this could be the year you actually stick to your health resolutions once and for all.

Josiah Novak is the host of The Fit Man Project podcast and the founder of True Transformation. He is back to tell us why we keep failing at our health resolutions and the secrets to creating a plan that we can succeed at.

Get ready to transform your body in 2018 and beyond!

Don’t be afraid to sit down and create a plan, and don’t be afraid to reach out for help. – @JosiahFitness #NewYears #resolutions #men #dads #fathers #2018 #fitness Click To Tweet

 

Heads up: The name of the show for 2018 will be changed to the Dad Edge Podcast. There will be no change in the content or the website, just the new show name and logo. Let us know how you like it!

Josiah Novak

Josiah Novak has been a guest on The Good Project several times. Josiah came from four generations of divorce and abuse. As an adult, he went through a tough time with weight gain and depression. At one point, he was even suicidal. Josiah used fitness to get through living in a dark place.

Josiah didn’t have a father to look up to and it’s his mission is to change the legacy that he comes from and help other people do the same by establishing a foundation of health.

If we’re taking care of our health, we have a much better chance of coming out on top when it comes to the legacy we leave behind. – @JosiahFitness #men #dads #fathers #fitness Click To Tweet

Optimum Gut Health For You And Your Kids

Optimum Gut Health for You and Your Kids with Dr. Adrian Chavez


As men, leaders, fathers, protectors, and providers, it’s up to us to take action when it comes to our health and the health of our kids. We need to make sure we put high-quality nutrient-rich foods into our bodies to perform our best and prevent disease.

But let’s face it – the American Diet sucks. Most of our food comes out of a package and is loaded with chemicals, sending our gut health into mass chaos.

Today we have Dr. Adrian Chavez on to talk about how processed foods affect the microbes in your gut and how this huge population of living bacteria affects every aspect of your physical and mental health.

We need to be an advocate for our own health. #health #dads #fathers #men Click To Tweet

Dr. Adrian Chavez

Dr. Adrian Chavez has a PhD in Nutrition and is a nutrition and natural health consultant. He is an expert in the gut/brain connection and hosts the Your Nutrition Prescription podcast.

Adrian, who is now a dad, grew up with two dads that influenced his life. His biological father was a drug dealer who was in and out of jail since Adrian was born. When Adrian was nine years old, he disappeared and left Adrian, his mom, and his brothers on their own. They struggled to survive and even lived in a homeless shelter for a few months.

The other man in Adrian’s life was his step dad who stepped in as the man of the family. He worked hard labor sixteen hours a day, six days a week to take care of Adrian’s mom and her kids. Adrian’s mom also worked very hard. As parents, they had little time or energy to be active parts of Adrian’s life, but they demonstrated a tremendous work ethic when it came to the survival of the family.

A year ago, someone reached out to Adrian with news of his father. He had been deported back to Mexico and wanted to reconnect. Adrian relayed his story to the contact, but informed him that he had no desire to be involved with his biological dad. Adrain had accepted the loss of him long ago, moving on and using his experience to become a better dad.

I don’t want to be that dad who’s just working. - Dr. Adrian Chavez #dads #fathers #worklifebalance #fatherhood #men Click To Tweet
