ReelChatter of the Month
Hi, I’m Amy! My husband Brian and I have been married for eight years and have two girls, Cora- almost 5, and Molly- 2.5. We have two cats, Mozzarella and Muenster.
What are your hobbies?
I love reading, exercising, boating, and being crafty! I love finding furniture on the curb and refinishing it, and I love to scrapbook.
Tell us how you got started with FIT4MOM?
I joined Fit4Mom about 3.5 years ago. I had heard about Stroller Strides before, but it wasn’t until I had a lump in my breast biopsied that I decided it was time to take control of my health. I hesitantly went to class on Monday, and I immediately knew it was exactly what I needed in my life. Physically, emotionally, mentally- FIT4MOM provided all the support I didn’t realize I was so badly in need of. Fast forward three years and one more child, when I learned that our local franchise was being sold, I was crushed! FIT4MOM had become such an important part of my life. When I asked my husband and my family what I was going to do without FIT4MOM they all told me that I was going buy the company. I couldn’t let this amazing group fall apart, so here we are!
How has your experience been so far owning a FIT4MOM franchise?
It has been wonderful! It still boggles my mind that I own a women’s fitness franchise. FIT4MOM has impacted my life in so many positive ways, I love that I’m able to continue to provide that supportive environment for other mamas.
Name someone who has inspired you and tell us why.
My mom is so inspirational. Shortly after I joined FIT4MOM she decided she was ready to make some lifestyle changes. She’s lost over 100 pounds and is the healthiest she’s been in my life time.
Favorite quote or mantra?
"I can do hard things."
Favorite thing about FIT4MOM?
The women in this village really become a second family. If you ever need anything- they’re there in a heartbeat. Forgot a change of clothes and your little falls in the mud? Someone’s got a back up for you! Having a rough week and need some words of encouragement? They’re on it! Need advice or reassurance that you’re not screwing up your kids? They’re right there with you!
What is your top advice to mamas out there looking to get fit and meet new friends but intimidated of joining a group like FIT4MOM?
Joining any new group can be scary and working out with a group can be extra intimidating. Before I joined FIT4MOM I assumed I’d be showing up to a class full of size zero women with perfectly behaved children. That was not the case at all! We have women of all shapes and sizes, with all fitness abilities, and from all backgrounds and walks of life. And surprise- even the most well-behaved child still throws fits on occasion! Once you take that first step and try a free class, you’ll see why the women keep coming back. As an old FIT4MOM saying goes, “come for the workout, stay for everything else!”
