Dan Fallon is the author the book Start with one thing: The Dads no BS approach to fat loss and fitness

He is also the founder of the Super You Project which is a fitness community specifically for Dads over 30 with the aim of stopping dads spending hard earned cash on fitness products that get them no long lasting results.

It focusses on Dan’s No BS approach to fat loss and fitness and weaves this together with a community of other Dads to help you reach your fitness and weight loss goals.

“My military background teaches you to be comfortable with the uncomfortable, i have a cold shower every morning and the only reason i do that is to be uncomfortable because we get so comfortable, you know sofa’s nice warm houses, your cars and I think you can take your foot of the gas quite easily in progressing in life.
