Sunday, I had the pleasure of working out with Fit Fathers for the first time. My friend and founder of Fit Fathers, Kimatni Rawlins, had been extending invitations to run every time he set up an event. Some of which, I would even give verbal commits to but could never find the time or energy to actually attend. Well that ended this weekend and now I am hooked.
Kimatni the intense excitement about getting fit and helping fathers do so, came on all of the sudden. It was an addiction as he changed his eating and fitness habits. His family would follow suit. Now a vegan, Kimatni is really dedicated to educating dads and getting them and their kids active.
We met up at Bowie High School’s track in Maryland on a beautiful Sunday morning. It worked out perfectly, as I was able to drop my little ladies off at a hairdresser a block away and return to workout with the Fit Father’s crew with my son. My son Arin was not quite decked out in his running attire but was enthused about working out with his dad, so we were both put to the test. There was a group of kids that ran together as the group of adults alternated around the track. While the kids ran, adults watched and rested and vice versa; cheering respected parents and kids on all the while.
The workout? One mile warmup, dynamic stretches, plyometrics, 50, 100, 200 & 400 meter repeats & a cool down. I had just enough energy to take the group shot below. If I was asked to do anything else I would have passed out! But it was a great workout and I was energized for the rest of my day.
My son wanted to get Dunkin Donuts afterwards and we even stopped in but while in line that Fit Fathers’ voice in my head got the best of me and we opted for fruit smoothies elsewhere.
