With Father's Day fast-approaching, we wanted to highlight a few of our Vital Proteins® andVital Performance™ super-dad staffers. When they aren't working on all things collagen, they're keeping up with their little ones, which doubles as a workout on most days.
Keep reading to find out how these Vital Dads are fueling their fitness routines. (Hint: It most definitely involves collagen.)
How Vital Dads Add Collagen To Their Workout Routines
Cameron Schuler, Sr. Director Vital Performance
Dad to 1½-year-old Isla
"I try to squeeze in workouts whenever I can. Oftentimes, I take my daughter on early morning 'adventure' runs in the jogging stroller. After, I squeeze in a quick snack — usually reaching for a Vital Performance™ Protein Bar or rehydrating with Vital Performance™ RECOVER for convenience before I head into the office."
Al Taylor, Customer Advocate Manager
Dad to 2-year-old Aubrey and 11-year-old Ayden
"Early morning workouts start the day for me! Strength training followed by an hour of cardio (racquetball) really gets the blood flowing. I start each workout with Vital Performance™ PRE in Lemon Grape. Post workout, I make a smoothie using Vital Performance™ Vanilla Protein, peanut butter, ice and a banana. After a daily Defense Collagen Shot™, I'm ready for the day!"
Erick Walts, R&D Technical Manager
Dad to 3-month-old Stella Joan
"Being a new dad has been amazing and exhausting at the same time! Having a 3-month-old, it's not always easy to get in a workout. I have found that most of my workouts consist of walking with Stella, pushing her around the neighborhood in her stroller. I always mix the Hydration** + Collagen in Lemon Lime with a Collagen Water™ in Lemon Slice to bring on our walks. This keeps me hydrated during the day when I forget to take time to drink enough."
Frank Auriemma, Order Pro & Fulfillment Lead
Dad to 3-year-old Gianna
"The Vital Performance™ Cold Brew Coffee Protein always adds the extra boost I need to keep up with Gigi and all the energy a 3-year-old can have. I also love the Energy Collagen Shot™. It helps me every day!"
