Quality: A Life Lesson from My Father

Quality: A Life Lesson from My Father

With Father’s Day coming up on Sunday, I’ve had time to reflect on all the amazing things my dad has taught me over the years. From the time my dad took my training wheels off my tricycle, to the time he taught me how to drive a mid-size SUV only a couple months ago (don’t judge me I’m from New York City!), all I can think is how blessed and grateful I am to have such loving and supportive parents. They have both instilled the confidence in me to do whatever task is at hand, and have prepared me to do great things in this world.

In essence, my dad helped set me up for success by giving me the proper preparation, practice and resources necessary to be the best possible version of myself. If I had to choose the two settings in which my relationship with my father blossomed, it would be in the kitchen and on the soccer field. My dad went to cooking school and he also played sports growing up, he was even the catcher for Miami University’s baseball team! So, he had a lot to teach my brother, Daniel, and I.

My father taught me early on – whether in the kitchen or on the soccer field – how important it is to practice, practice, practice…and to practice properly. He strongly believes in using products with high quality and value, especially while practicing and preparing for something important to you. So, I learned how to tell the difference between something gimmicky and something worth purchasing. This important lesson has followed me throughout my life, and is even part of the reason why I am such a passionate supporter of Fitletic. Fitletic products are made to last, they’re durable, well thought out, and engineered to perfection. Exactly the type of products my father would have taught me to appreciate growing up, especially for all my future morning runs and hikes with friends.

See, the importance of something that’s well made goes beyond just the aesthetics – it allows you to take on your activity with tools that’ll only help you reach your goals – not take away from them. It’s those innovations that make all the difference, like the time my dad lent me his favorite compression socks when I started getting shin splints from running. The lesson is in the details, and the details are what my dad pays attention to more than the average person.

That’s why this Father’s day, I’m excited to gift my dad his very own Fitletic waist belt paired with our new and improved armband. I already have a feeling he’ll enjoy and notice the user-friendly touch screen and the quality material it’s made with to wick moisture and sweat. As for the waist belt, it won’t be a new accessory for him – he’s been wearing one since I was a kid. But he’s in for a treat, because I know firsthand Fitletic has the best one on the market.

The gift is about letting him know I listened all those times he urged me to pick quality over cutting corners. It’s about showing him that his hard work as a parent has changed my life, who I am, and the kinds of decisions I make on a daily basis; whether it’s being detail-oriented, practicing and preparing properly, or valuing the things I’m lucky to have.

Like everything else he does, he has given parenting his best effort and I can say in earnest, he was always great and every day becomes greater. Dad, thank you for everything you do for me, I wouldn’t be me without you. Show your dad (or guardian/parental figure) you care this Father’s day by pairing two Fitletic products together and give the gift of top-notch quality because your dad and my dad deserve products that match their lessons and lifestyles!
