image-1Hi there. My name is Michael Ashford.

I started my fitness journey in 2012 after I went to the beach with my wife and then-almost-2-year-old son, and my wife snapped the picture of me you see on the left. I saw the picture and decided right then I was sick of being the skinny guy.

In the years since, I’ve dedicated myself to living a healthy, active lifestyle by working out at least five times a week. I’ve changed my diet, for health reasons (gluten intolerance) and because so much of our health is directly linked to the foods we consume.

In July 2016, I became a certified personal trainer (NASM-CPT), further enhancing my dedication to fitness and health.

I want to pass my love of fitness and health on to my kids – I have a son and a daughter – and also be healthy myself so that I can live a long, fulfilling life as I grow older. I want to give other fathers ideas for how to remain fit and active themselves and use that lifestyle to stay involved in their kids’ lives instead of checking out, as I see so many fathers doing.

Fit Dad Fitness is all about encouraging fathers to live an active, involved, healthy life with their children.
