military mindset

Have you heard of the “military mindset”? One active-duty military member recently used that — and the Fit Father Project — to meet his weight loss goals. Read on to see how he did it.

Visualization is a key element in a military mindset.

Fit Father Leon was on the brink of his 50th birthday when he decided to finally break his unhealthy habits.

“I saw myself in photos and I was disgusted,” reflects Leon. “Nearing the age of 50, I could no longer ‘out-run a bad diet.’ I weighed 217 lbs. I had a slowing metabolism and injuries. I needed to make changes to become healthier or I was going to continue down a road of very poor health.”

The Fit Father programs are designed exclusively for busy men over 40 who want to lose weight, build muscle, and regain their health.

“Mentally, age is becoming a ‘real’ thing for me now,” states Leon. “I wanted to be productive into my later years for my family and my daughter. I was looking for a program for men my age. I joined the Fit Father Brotherhood in the beginning of 2020.”

Fit Father Leon started his weight loss journey with the Fit Father 30X program.

If you’re in your 40s, 50s, & 60s, you need to eat and exercise differently to lose weight & actually keep it off…

Using a Military Mindset to Lose 43 lbs in Less Than 3 Months

“Today is Day 72 and I have already reached my goal,” smiles Leon. “I’ve lost 43 lbs using the Fit Father programs. I have lost 10 inches around my waist. My blood pressure is down. I’m wearing old military uniforms that I could not wear for years. Everything fits again. It’s insane!”

Fit Father Members can expect to lose 5-25 pounds in their first 30 days following Fit Father 30X.

FF30X is the proven weight loss program for men over 40.

The online program includes simple meal plans, time-efficient workouts (that don’t require a gym), daily accountability, and access to the private Members-Only group.

Fit Father Brotherhood

“This program works,” states Leon. “I am simply so much happier since joining the Fit Father Brotherhood. That’s the best way to say it. I used to be embarrassed of how I looked, but I’m not anymore.”

When you join the Brotherhood, you join a community of like-minded men determined to become the healthiest, best version of themselves.

The private Brotherhood group allows Members from around the world to connect, share successes, ask questions, and hold each other accountable.

“Honestly, the Fit Father group is one of the most important parts of the program to me,” explains Leon. “I gain significant motivation from reading the daily posts and connecting with the other Fit Father Members.”

Inspire, Educate, and Empower

“The Fit Father programs include tons of valuable information,” says Leon. “I have sifted through all the resources inside my Membership site. I use the key points that work best for me. The program is easy to modify based on your own goals, schedule, and preferences. Regarding the meals, you aren’t restricted to specific restaurants or recipes. The program even explains why you might want to choose or avoid certain foods and drinks, so you’re constantly learning.”

The Fit Father Mission is to educate, inspire, and empower men around the world to be healthy.

“People always ask me how I lost 43 lbs and I immediately tell them about the Fit Father Project,” says Leon. “I have recommended the Fit Father programs several times. They can be modified to anyone’s schedule, physical abilities or goals. These programs work.”

Over 25,000 men worldwide have seen life-changing results by following the Fit Father Project programs.

New Goals

“My new goal is to lose seven more pounds,” says Leon. “I want to claim the 50 lbs lost milestone. Once I attain that goal, I will focus on getting stronger.”

Old School Muscle (OSM) is the proven muscle building program for men over 40.

When Members accomplish their weight loss goals, they often transition to the Old School Muscle programs.

“The Fit Father 30X program worked for me,” says Leon. “I have already recommended it to other men over 40 and I will continue to recommend it.”

Summary: 4 Lessons to Learn from Leon’s Success

Lesson 1: Age is only a number. You can and should be healthy at every age. It doesn’t matter if you’re 40, 50, 60 or beyond — the Fit Father programs can help you lose the stubborn belly fat, gain muscle mass, and become healthy once and for all.

Lesson 2: Drastic weight loss does not take years to accomplish. Fit Father Leon lost 43 pounds in less than 3 months. When you’re using a weight loss program designed exclusively for you, you will see results faster. And your results will last!

Your fellow Fit Fathers are always there to support you, offer advice, and hold you accountable – ensuring you meet your goals.
