I’m Daniel, a 3-time end of the world survivor, father, geek, writer, and amateur fitness junkie from Santa Rosa, California. I made Fit To Be Dad with the goal of being a site that will provide tips, information, motivation, and encouragement to other fathers, who want to take charge of their health and wellness in order to be better, healthier, and happier dads.
I became a dad and husband when I was 18 years old and I’ve known all too well how easy it is to go from an active lifestyle to an unhealthy, sedentary one. Over the years I’ve tried many times to get my act together and get fit again. Though my own personal journey, I hope to motivate other dads (really, all parents) to demonstrate a healthy lifestyle to their children by leading by example.
While this blog was made primarily to talk about health and fitness, I am also a dad and so you will find a lot of family and parenting-related posts which may not actually have anything to do with fitness. I’m a brand ambassador for FitFluential and I’ve been fortunate enough to have become a contributing writer to The Good Men Project. I’ve also worked with brands such as Hasbro, NFL, MLB, Dove Men+Care, Lee Jeans, SmartyPants Vitamins, and Pampers, who all saw an increase in engagement with brand messaging from my posts.
