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.

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
