Fit Father Christopher joined the Brotherhood in September of 2019. Christopher was 45 years old weighing 252lbs. He was ready to make a change.

Chris L BeforeHis tipping point occurred a few months earlier during his annual physical.

“I was diagnosed with hypertension,” states Christopher.

“I was struggling with depression and I was having lower back pain. I couldn’t face the guy in the mirror any longer. I was failing myself and my family.”

Finding the Right Program

Back in 2011, Christopher had weight loss success with a different program. He lost a lot of weight, but the workout routines were too extreme.

“While following the other program I injured my shoulder,” explains Christopher.

“I gained back 70lbs. After a few years, I decided enough was enough, but I knew I didn’t want to go back to those old routines. I felt it was not something I could safely commit to at my age.”

The Proven Program for Men over 40

Fit Father 30X is the proven weight loss program for busy guys over the age of 40.

“After getting diagnosed with hypertension I started searching the internet for workout programs designed for men over 40,” says Christopher.

“I found the Fit Father Project and felt it was a sustainable way to get healthy, without extreme workouts.”

FF30X includes delicious and simple meal plans, time-efficient workouts (that are safe on joints and don’t require a gym membership), daily accountability (to keep you moving toward your goals) and instant access to the private Members-Only group (where Fit Fathers connect, encourage and support one another).

“I joined Fit Father 30X not only for myself but for my wife and sons,” says Christopher.

71 Pounds Lost

“I am a different person since joining the FFP Brotherhood,” states Christopher.

“I lost 71lbs in 8 months following the Fit Father programs. I have lost over 14 inches from my waist, forcing me to buy an entirely new wardrobe.

All the health problems I had before, have been eliminated. I have a new lifestyle now and I am proud to be a Fit Father.”

Why FF30X Works

Fit Father 30X was created exclusively for men over 40 with aging metabolisms and busy schedules.

Each part of the proven program is designed to be simple and sustainable.

“The Fit Father meal plan is easy to follow,” says Christopher.

“I can incorporate the healthy principles into every meal I have with my family. Even when I go out to eat or am traveling, I can always find options that fit in the Fit Father guidelines.”

The Fit Father workouts are time-efficient and safe on aging joints.

“I love the variety of the workouts,” says Christopher.

“Inside our Membership site and included in our accountability emails we get tutorial videos that explain proper form and helpful tips to avoid injury.

The videos serve well to supplement the Fit Father literature. As an educator, I appreciate understanding the theory behind the application.”

When Fit Father Members join FF30X they receive daily accountability emails and they get instant access to the private Members-Only group!

Inside the group Fit Fathers share their successes, ask questions, and connect with other Members on the same weight loss journey.

When you are part of the FFP Brotherhood you are never alone.

Non-Scale Victories

When following the step-by-step Fit Father program, Members lose weight at a steady, healthy pace ensuring their weight loss results will last.

Throughout their journey, Fit Fathers will see the number on their scale drop and they will also experience Non-Scale Victories.

NSVs are the moments that show forward progress without a scale.

“I’ve had countless Non-Scale Victories since starting FF30X,” states Christopher.

“Recently I went to the Doctor’s office and when the nurse took my blood pressure, she remarked that I had the blood pressure of a teenager! For someone who had been diagnosed with hypertension, that was amazing to hear.”

Old School Muscle

Once Members hit their goal weight and body fat percentage, they have the option to transition to Old School Muscle.

Old School Muscle, or OSM, is the proven muscle building program for men over 40.

“Now that I’m at a healthy weight and body fat percentage I want to fulfill my dream of building more muscle,” says Christopher.

“I want to remain healthy and lean, but I want to build mass. I’m following the Old School Muscle programs now.”

Healthy After 40

“Through the Fit Father programs, I have learned that living healthy isn’t about perfection,” states Christopher.

“It’s about consistency. And I will forever be grateful that I came across the Fit Father Project, because it changed my life.

I hope my success story can help other men do the same!”

Summary: 4 Tips to learn from Christopher’s Success

  • Tip 1: Don’t give up on being healthy because other programs have failed you in the past.

Christopher lost weight and gained it back with another program, but on the Fit Father programs he sustainably lost 71lbs and kept it off.
  • Tip 2: It’s not necessary to perform extreme workouts to lose weight…

and as a man over 40 you shouldn’t! With aging joints and prior injuries, extreme workouts will only cause you pain and suffering.

The Fit Father workouts only require a pair of dumbbells, 5 feet of floor space, and less than 90 minutes per week.

  • Tip #3: In less than one year you can make a life-changing transformation.

In 8 months, Christopher lost 71lbs, dropped 12 inches off his waist, reversed his hypertension, significantly lowered his blood pressure, and gained lean muscle.

If you follow the proven step-by-step Fit Father programs you can have massive health success too!

  • Tip #4: Age is only a number.

Here at the Fit Father Project, we remind men on a daily basis that age is only a number. Age should never be your excuse for being unhealthy.
You are never too old, too fat or too over-the-hill to make a change. You can be healthy. You can lose the stubborn belly fat. You can be strong.
