Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: One of the last classes of the Body Back program is called the 100s class, which requires 100 reps of each exercise. It’s incredibly challenging, but all of the moms cheer for each other, finish the tough workout together and celebrate at the end! One of my favorite things about Fit4Mom is the way that moms encourage and inspire each other.
Favorite Exercise: Bicep curls and wall sits
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: After my son is asleep, I enjoy cozying up on the couch, sipping a cup of tea and watching Bravo.
What motivates you to exercise: I exercise to improve my physical and mental health and to model a healthy lifestyle for my family.
How has FIT4MOM changed your life? I found Fit4Mom shortly after I made the decision to leave the professional world and become a full-time mom. I was eager to find a community of other moms and Fit4Mom provided that (and so much more!) This community of moms is so welcoming and supportive. I’ve made wonderful friends, received great advice, and had a lot of fun sharing milestones with these women and their children.
Piece of advice for new moms: Make time for self care. With the help of Fit4Mom, I’ve made the commitment to take time for myself each week which has helped me be a better mother, wife and friend.
