Mindset-Driven Fitness with Marc Hildebrand

Without challenges, we cannot grow. One of our biggest challenges as fathers is to make sure we don’t neglect our health. But learning how to take care of our bodies is the foundation that sets us up for success in all other areas of our lives.

Marc Hildebrand is a husband, father, and LAPD sergeant. He is the creator of First Responder Fitness and provides mindset, fitness, and nutrition solutions for those in the unpredictable career of being a first responder. After losing 100 pounds, he tells us from firsthand experience how to balance work, family, and fitness.

He talks about how outer success is a reflection of our inner growth, and that is why mindset-driven fitness is the only way to get lasting results on your health goals for this year and the rest of your life.

What You’ll Learn

  • The right questions bring the right answers. Ask yourself a solutions-based questions. “How might I make it possible to do what I need to do?”

Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit and Back Again with Drew Manning


Are you a busy, hardworking dad who is ready to get in his best physical health this year? We have the most amazing guest for you!

Drew Manning is NY Times Bestselling author of Fit2Fat2Fit, a book about how he gained and lost seventy-five pounds in order to better understand the struggle to lose weight. Now he talks about Fit2Fat2Forty, which addresses the particular struggles we have with extra weight as we get older.

Drew is bent on disrupting the aspects of the fitness industry that have no empathy for overweight people. He talks about the emotional and mental work that we need to do to take care of our bodies. He also tells us how busy dads can define health for themselves so that diet and exercise doesn’t feel like punishment.

Prepare yourself to not only become a healthy dad, but also a happy and energetic one.

It’s not about body fat percentage, it’s about where you feel good. —Drew Manning

 

Drew Manning

Health and fitness expert Drew Manning is the New York Times best-selling author of Fit2Fat2Fit: The Unexpected Lessons from Gaining and Losing 75 lbs on Purpose and has for years been a leading voice in the burgeoning Keto Diet movement. Drew is also the creator of the A&E Show Fit to Fat to Fit and the host of The Fit2Fat2Fit Experience podcast. With over a million social media followers, Drew continues to transform people’s lives all around the world. Known for his straightforward and empathetic fitness and health coaching, Drew has been featured on The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, The View, and MSNBC, among other media outlets. He lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with his daughters, who remind him every day not to take things too seriously.

Fit2Fat2Fit

Drawing from the lessons and insights of his breakout website, Fit2Fat2Fit.com, personal trainer Drew Manning delivers the story of his quest to go from fit to fat to fit again in one year in order to better understand the weight-loss struggles of his clients and the online community. Drew embarked on this journey to prove to clients, website followers, and people across the country that it is possible to get back into shape—and his bottomless desire to kindle a new hope for his readers comes through on every page of Fit2Fat2Fit. With before and after (and after…) photos to that tell their own striking story, and intimate reflections from Drew’s wife Lynn, Fit2Fat2Fit is more than a spectacle or a gimmick; it’s an inspiring story, and sound proof that anyone can reach the level of fitness they desire to make themselves happy.

What You’ll Learn

  • Drew first did the Fit2Fat2Fit challenge because his personal training clients said the he didn’t understand their struggles with weight loss.
  • Drew is going at it again as a 40-year-old to address the challenges that come up as our bodies and metabolism change.
  • Many people in the fitness industry have no empathy for overweight people.
  • There is a mental component to fitness and weight loss. Overeating can be from trauma.
  • Mental and emotional work to address the self-worth issues that no amount of dieting and exercise can fix.
  • Becoming overweight taught Drew to separate his body image as his self-image.
  • He grew up with self-hate because in his upbringing, he felt he had to be perfect or he was a complete failure.
  • He pretended to be confident to hide his imperfections.
  • Without his fit body, he was lost. It was the only thing that gave him self-worth and the only thing he could control.
  • Own your story and write your own ending.
  • How he is helping his daughters to grow up with a healthy body image
  • Being out of shape affects the core of who you are.
  • How your diet impacts your sex life and finances
  • The key for busy dads to finding time and energy for diet and fitness
  • It’s not about getting the body. It’s about loving yourself enough to take care of your physical health.
  • Treat yourself kindly so exercise is not a punishment.
  • Increase self-awareness. Observe your thoughts instead of being your thoughts. What triggers you to make bad health choices and why?
  • Your kids don’t care what you look like. They just want you to love them.

Real AF Self-Discipline with Andy Frisella


Today we are beyond excited to have Andy Frisella on The Dad Edge! This interview is the favorite above all other episodes.

If you don’t already know, Andy Frisella hosted the #1 business and success podcast in the world, The MFCEO project, and is the creator of 1st Phorm supplements. Andy is also the host of the Real AF Podcast and the founder of the #75Hard mental and physical fitness challenge.

With a big voice, big personality, and big heart, Andy Frisella, gets real AF about his struggles. He reveals that he naturally is a weak and lazy person, and that only by learning the skill of self-discipline has he developed his unstoppable work ethic and hustle.

He talks about why health must be our priority and how the #75Hard challenge develops the self-discipline we need to accomplish everything we want to do in life.

He also tells us how to practice extreme time management, how to develop true self-confidence, and what legacy really means.

Andy shares stuff in this show that you haven’t heard on any other podcast. Get ready to get real AF about life!

“If you can master the art of feeling stressed but still getting your shit done, you start to become real dangerous.”—Andy Frisella

On his popular new podcast, REAL AF with Andy Frisella, he and his guests discuss, debate and laugh their way through trending topics and hot-button issues.

“Stand up for what is right, no matter what it costs you.”—Andy Frisella

What You’ll Learn

  • As men, the first thing we shelve is our health. We think we have to throw ourselves on the sword for our families.
  • Everything in life is built from health and discipline.
  • Controlling your hunger for food is a good tool to build discipline.
  • If you can’t control what you put in your mouth, you’re not likely to control anything else.
  • Success is not an excuse to let yourself go.
  • Take negativity and harness it for productive action.
  • Boundaries—don’t feel guilty taking care of yourself.

  • You can learn from bad parenting in your past.
  • Why Andy’s pissed off at men right now
  • Why men today have to recalibrate the way we look at love
  • What masculine energy means to Andy
  • There is no way to please everyone on social media (and in life). The more you try, the more you lose respect from the people who appreciate you as you are.
  • 75Hard helps you more than just by making you look better. It makes you mentally powerful.
  • Why 75 Hard enhances your sex life (and it’s not just because you’re in shape).

  • How self-discipline develops true confidence
  • How a challenge like 75 Hard helps you develop extreme time management
  • Andy’s 4-phase year-long program
  • Your feelings are irrelevant to your results. If you can push through in spite of how you feel, you will be unstoppable.

  • The truth of why Andy is not having kids
  • What legacy really means

accountability partner

Start Reaching Your Goals with an Accountability Partner

When it comes to committing to our goals, we often let ourselves down. We’ll sleep in instead of getting that workout in. We’ll give in to that junk food or extra beer. We’ll put off our big dreams for another day. No one will know that we didn’t follow through. But if we have to answer to someone else, the whole game changes. Today we talk about how you can start reaching your goals with an accountability partner.

In this episode, you will see the accountability partner dynamic in action in the Dad Edge Alliance. Ninety-six of our members signed up for #75Hard, a 75-day challenge that develops physical and mental strength. We matched everyone up with accountability partners. Today you’ll get to hear about some of the powerful transformations that happened just by having someone to answer to and give support.

What You’ll Learn

  • Having an Accountability Partner helps you reach your goals and:
    • Strengthens mental toughness
    • Helps you live with more intention
    • Increases self-sufficiency
    • Promotes calm
    • Enhances creative problem-solving
  • You can inspire other men by achieving what they think they can’t.
  • Serving others helps you to take the focus off yourself. Life is bigger.
  • Accountability trains you to show up.
  • It feels rewarding to tell someone you met your goals.
  • Following through with an accountability partner allows your family see your commitment and discipline.
  • You get the tough love you need to push through resistance
  • You will have someone who knows you can do it, even if you think you can’t.
  • 75Hard rules
    • Exercise twice a day for 45 minutes each. One workout must be outdoors.
    • Drink a gallon of water a day.
    • Choose any diet or eating plan and stick with it for 75 days. No cheat meals and NO ALCOHOL.
    • Read a minimum of 10 pages every day of personal development or business book
    • Take one progress photo each day.
