Fit Father, Fit Mother: A Family Centric Approach to Health and Longevity – Episode 205

Do you know the best nutritional ideas or why you need more sleep? Join Jeffrey Gladden and Anthony Balduzzi in this episode of Gladden Longevity. Dr. Anthony Balduzzi, the founder and CEO of the Fit Father Project and Fit Mother Project, experienced a pivotal moment in his childhood when he watched his father work relentlessly, only to succumb to illness and pass away at 42. Anthony was just nine years old at the time. This lifechanging event inspired him to dedicate his life to helping busy fathers and mothers aged 40 and above lose weight, build muscle, and improve their overall health for the well-being of their families. As a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in Arizona, Dr. Balduzzi also holds dual degrees in Nutrition and Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. In addition to his academic achievements, he is a former national champion bodybuilder. Through his unwavering commitment and efforts, Dr. Balduzzi has successfully helped over 60,000 families across more than 100 countries through his Fit Father and Fit Mother Programs. This episode discusses how our bodies and minds evolve, the challenges we face in both fitness and health after 40, the outward ripple effect our personal health has on those around us, and the power of the nutrition, sleep, and exercise trifecta in turning our lives around.
