Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: I love all things Fit4Mom from classes to after class play mini groups. But I think my favorite memory or thing about Fit4Mom would be MNO. I love getting together with all the moms. I loved going to the Warbler as well as the most recent night out at the Pump and Dump show and then going out afterwards. I also loved art and crafts for my first mothers day and Ryan made me a foot flower pot. It was her first art project so this will be saved for sure.
Favorite Exercise: Well anyone who knows me, knows push ups are my least favorite but when i'm with Nicole down by the lake of course doing bands and when I am with Amy I am always down for a dance moment.
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: After Ryan goes to bed, just laying in my bed watching my shows with some hot tea.
What motivates you to exercise: I'm very into sports and grew up always being active. I want my daughter to be the same way and for her to hopefully get the same feeling I got when I played sports.
How has FIT4MOM changed your life? It has introduced me to the most amazing women who I am so proud to call friends and some of them even family.
Piece of advice for new moms: Don't worry about not being in the best shape, this village is so helpful and uplifting that even if you come by yourself for the first time.. Which I did.. it will be so easy to make at least 1 friend but trust me you will come out with so many more than that. This is truly one aspiring, helpful and caring village.
