The Proven Program for Men 40+

The Fit Father programs are designed exclusively for busy men in their 40s, 50s, and 60s.

The programs are crafted to be simple, sustainable, and time-efficient.

“The Fit Father 30X program is great,” states Doug. “I can’t believe the changes in my body. My energy levels are like they were 20 years ago.”

Doug started his weight loss journey with Fit Father 30X.

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

The step-by-step online program includes simple and delicious meal plans, time-efficient workouts (that can be done at home), daily accountability, and access to the private Members-Only group.

Lots of men are getting strong at 60 like Doug, come join them!

28 lbs Lost in 3 Months

Fit Father Members can expect to lose 5-20 lbs within their first month of following the Fit Father 30X program.

“I’m the fittest I have been since I played rugby in high school,” smiles Doug. “I wish I would have started the Fit Father program 10 years ago!”

Workouts and Meal Plans Made for You

The truth is, as a man over 40 you cannot workout the same way you did when you were in your 20s.

As a man with aging joints, prior injuries, and a busy schedule, you need a workout routine that is designed to meet your needs.

That’s why the workouts inside FF30X only require a pair of dumbbells and five feet of floor space.

“The Fit Father workouts are challenging but doable,” says Doug. “They are designed to speed up your metabolism. In conjunction with the very practical Fit Father meal plan, it’s easy to shed weight quickly on this program.”

The Fit Father meal plan is easy to follow.

As a Member, you get to pick your own meal timing setup, your favorite recipes and your favorite go-to foods.

The meal plan can be adjusted to match your preferences.

You won’t spend hours slaving away in the kitchen and you can still eat the foods you love!

Non-Scale Victories for the Win

In the Fit Father Brotherhood, members celebrate dropping numbers on the scale and Non-Scale Victories (NSVs).

NSVs are the moments and experiences in the weight loss journey that show forward progress without a scale.

Members can expect NSVs like sleeping better, decreased medication intake, increased energy, more ease in daily activities, clothes fitting better, etc.

“My waist size went from a 38 to a 36,” begins Doug. “My body fat dropped from 26% to 19.3%. I’ve seen improvements in my strength and confidence. I consistently get compliments from friends and family who are proud of me for the accomplishments I’ve made.”

“The Fit Father programs are phenomenal,” states Doug. “I’ve lost 34 lbs. I’ve gained strength and I’ve improved my range of motion. I’m grateful to have joined the Fit Father Brotherhood back in 2018.”

Strong at 60: Doug’s Fit Father Journey

Over the last two years, Doug has completed the FF30X Phases 1-3 and Old School Muscle Phase 1.

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

“Once I hit my target weight, I started to focus on adding muscle,” explains Doug. “My goal was to add muscle mass and have a defined physique, so I started Old School Muscle.”

Fit Father Doug completed Old School Muscle and is now following the FF30X Phase 4 program.

“I want fitness and good health to be a part of my everyday life,” states Doug. “The Fit Father programs help me do that!”

4 Lessons to Learn from Doug’s Success:

Lesson 1: It is possible as a man over 40 to have energy levels as you did in high school! You can be strong at 60 or any other age! When Doug joined the Brotherhood, he was constantly tired. After following the Fit Father programs, his energy levels increased. He regained the energy that he had years ago while playing high school rugby.

When you join the Fit Father Brotherhood, you are instantly connected to a community of like-minded men with the same struggles, following the same program.
