People are usually surprised when a father is involved in his child’s life. They’re shocked if he is fit, vibrant, and up for anything. Be it challenging yourself in the weightroom or the boardroom, being the best you can be is essential to your child’s well being. Who else will inspire them to chase their dreams?

That’s why I’ve started Jacked Dad. If you like all the fitness and nutrition tips on this site, but you’d like to learn more about how to fit them into the wonderful craziness that is fatherhood, then check out Jacked Dad!

Sorry this has kept me away from this site for awhile. There was a lot of heartfelt writing that went into even the first few posts. That, and the actually parenting thing takes up a bit of time! Anyway, check out my new site. There’s lots of great stuff to come!
