“In the person of Josh Levitt- naturopathic doctor, health conscious guy, loving dad- the choice for a father between nurturing interactions with their new baby and attention to their own fitness has simply gone away. Josh shows us how to have both- cultivating the health of father, baby, and the relationship between the two all at once. This is a simple, brilliant insight. If ever there was a way to have our cake and eat it, too- Josh has served it up in 'Baby Barbells.' And into the bargain, this cake is health food!”
