Thomas Gives Us the Science to Turn Our Dad Bods Into Healthier Dads
Book Title: Fitness For Busy Dads

I took an opportunity to sit down and read this book. As the title says “I am a busy dad”. It is captivating from the moment you start reading the first few pages, more than likely because I can relate to a lot of things that Thomas has been through. In the midst of teaching us and revealing successful tips to make us healthier in the long run I could see he was genuinely speaking from experience. If you are like me and like the KISS method (Keep it simple stupid) then this book will be a great addition to your repertoire. Thomas gives us the science behind each aspect to turn our dad bods into healthier dads that can run along with our kids without the embarrassment of being outrun or outworked at the end of the day. Thank you Thomas!
