Tell me about your business.
FIT4MOM is the nation’s leading company for pre and postnatal health, wellness, and fitness programs for every stage of motherhood. From pregnancy through postpartum and beyond, our fitness and wellness programs help make moms strong in body, mind, and spirit. By providing mom with the support, community and self-care she needs during pregnancy, postpartum and throughout every stage of her motherhood journey, we believe these moms will raise healthy, strong families. FIT4MOM is more than a fitness franchise; we believe in building communities through connecting with local families, businesses, entrepreneurs, and neighborhoods.
How long have you been in this field and what’s your background?
I have been a part of FIT4MOM for over 8 years. I started as a member when my oldest was 8 weeks old. I needed a mom community and a way to safely move my body. Shortly after becoming a member, I knew I was called to do more. I needed to pay the support I received forward, so I became an instructor. I loved the connection, the community and the safe space I was able to facilitate for my local moms. Then 5 years ago I bought the business! I am a group exercise certified instructor. I am certified in FIT4BABY, Stroller Strides, Run Club, Stroller Barre, 360, Body Ignite and Body Well.
What inspired you to create this business, and what makes you different from other ones in your field?
As a new mom I was lost, and needed to find a community of local moms that understood what I was going through. I have always been active so finding a group that was active was so important to me. So when I became a member and saw first hand how this group changed me, I knew that I needed to continue to do this and be a part of this. I needed to help moms find their community, and also teach them how to move their “new” bodies in a healthy way. Whether sleep deprived, post partum, prenatal or where ever they are in in their journey, we are here to provide support and care.
How does your business help new parents?
FIT4MOM is more than a fitness business. Yes we help moms move their body in every stage of motherhood. But even more so we give them a community of moms and support. A place where they can talk about things that they encounter. Where they can ask questions. And where they can find friends, and also their little ones first friends. Along with that FIT4MOM helps teach moms and little ones that fitness is fun, and moving our bodies in a healthy way is fun!
