Dr. Anthony Balduzzi is a naturopathic doctor, national champion bodybuilder, and founder of the Fit Father Project and Fit Mother Project—online health and fitness communities aimed at empowering busy parents to get healthy, lose weight, and build muscle through practical nutrition and exercise plans.
Seeing his father suffer through sickness and pass away at the age of 42 imprinted in young Anthony’s mind that life is both finite and fragile. Being faced with mortality so early on, no less through a parent, catapulted him into the world of health and fitness. He realized, as he went down this path, that it all comes down to “how we manage our nutrition, our sleep, our movement, and our mindset.”
The tragic, early experience of losing his dad planted a seed within Anthony to help others like his father who were “just busy and caught in the throes of managing everything” at the expense of their healthy routines. “Health,” he continues, “is often put on the backburner when we have bills and responsibilities, and I saw that happening to so many people.”
To this end, Dr. Balduzzi created the Fit Father Project alongside the Fit Mother Project, programs that simplify—and make sustainable—exercise and nutrition for everyday busy parents.
