Hi, I’m Adam and I have my firstborn on the way 👼🏻💎 #teamblue
I mean, if you stop looking after yourself once you have a life that relies on you then that’s not very good practice.
Now I know that having a baby will change our lives. After all, everybody keeps telling us! However, I am a believer that having a child doesn’t have to change your physical fitness and health.
I have seen it with friends and family. A child is born (#notjesus) and they lose all motivation to train, or if they have the motivation to train then they just don’t have the time to do so.
I’m here to tell you that this doesn’t have to be the way. What ever happened to circuits, HIIT, home workouts, body weight exercises?
You can still build your muscle mass and fitness whilst training at home, or during 30 minute gym sessions.
I know……I do it.
Yes, I don’t have a child yet but I do have a pretty busy life…..
I am nearly the perfect average man. 5’ 10”, mousy brown hair, brown eyes…but NOT overweight or obese (this last part is average these days).
I live in South Wales, UK with my beautiful fiancée, handsome fur-child Gunner (cockapoo) and our first expecting child.
I am a full time employee in the Water Industry, On-Call Firefighter and business owner/entrepreneur! (Like most entrepreneurs these days….I’m still waiting on the success). 😂
Fair to say….I’m a busy dude, but that’s just the way I like it.
However, no matter how busy life gets I always remember what is most important….my health!
How useless I would be if a was dead 💀
Fitness has always payed an important role in my life. Boxing was my first major sport and one that I competed in until I found girls. Following boxing it was rugby. However, one constant was always running and weightlifting.
No matter what sport I was competing in, if any at the time, I would always maintain my training consistency with running and weightlifting.
And this is where I am at now. I do not compete in any sports. Personally I do not see the point if I am not being paid to do so.
All that I do now for my health and fitness is maintain and well rounded diet, life weights 3/4 times a week and fit in a couple of small runs.
I do not want to be jacked or ripped, neither do I want to be an ultra runner. I just want to be fit and healthy, training whilst also looking after my body.
Really, I only have one aim for my body…to be able to run around with my great grand children when I’m 85.
*Queue the attitude, dubstep, and rippling abs*
Jokes…..if rippling abs, crazy tattoos and hordes of ladies is what you’re after, you’re on the wrong blog my friend.
I can’t show you how to be a bodybuilder or physique athlete….because I’m not one myself. I have the knowledge on how to achieve those figures and gains in size but it just has too much of an impact on personal lives.
What I can show you is this – How to achieve a great level of health and fitness without taking too much time away from your families.
How to grow your confidence, improve your energy levels, shed fat, and build muscle whilst still enjoying your treats, takeaways and beers.
Fitness doesn’t have to be difficult. Abs don’t have to be at the sacrifice of a lifestyle of enjoyment.
So please, stay with me and join me on this journey to being the best Dad’s possible. Fit, healthy and present.
Dad-bods don’t have to be a thing!
