A recent survey by Planet Fitness reveals a surprising new trend: the “dad bod” is officially considered attractive. On this segment of “What’s Trending”, host Patricia Wu and guest therapist Ryan Heapy discuss the reasons behind this shift in body image perception.

Strength & Adaptability

A little extra padding doesn’t mean being out of shape. It suggests a man who can handle anything life (and fatherhood) throws his way.

Healthy Balance

The “dad bod” represents prioritizing family and enjoying life, without obsessing over an unrealistic body ideal.

Sexiness of Imperfection

It shows that a man is more than just his looks, suggesting qualities like warmth and a focus on what truly matters.
