Becoming a FIT4MOM franchisee was absolutely life changing for me. I became depressed during my pregnancy with my first child. I felt alone not knowing any other mothers for support. To add insult to injury, I had battled eating disorders my entire life which became an internal struggle as I gained weight during my pregnancy. I had an A-HA moment and realized that I couldn't go on like this; I couldn't be the mother I so desperately wanted to be with this unhealthy perception. I decided that I needed to learn how to love myself for her. Ella became my WHY.

I was working as a play skills teacher when I heard about Stroller Strides. I googled it and found a location just 15 minutes from my home. I had always been a 'workout-aholic' and I knew I needed to meet other moms, so I thought it would be a perfect way for me to connect with like-minded mamas. I was nervous. Will they like me? Will Ella be ok in the stroller? I definitely had to give myself a "be brave" pep talk in the car on the way to my first class. I had no idea how my world would flip...I loved everything about it. I loved the workout; it was not just a stroll in the park. I loved how friendly everyone was and the instant connection I had with these moms. I knew that I had to be a part of it.

I was excited and couldn't wait to tell my husband to see what he thought about me becoming an instructor. He thought it was a great idea, but he thought I should not just teach classes that I should look into owning a franchise. I thought he was crazy. ME, a business owner?! I didn't believe in myself, but he did. The area that I was living in was available to purchase; it all seemed to align so perfectly. I could lead classes in my own neighborhood. We made the investment and bought a franchise. It was a risk and a big financial decision. I never expected to have a big group of members or even make money at this, but it was something I was passionate about. I wanted to help other mothers have a healthy lifestyle. I wanted to give moms support and most importantly I wanted to be a healthy role model for my daughter.

If you would have told me six years ago that I would have multiple classes and locations, a team of incredible instructors and a community of moms that are dedicated to our classes, I would have thought you were crazy. I can't imagine my life without FIT4MOM. I am happy and healthy and I love what I do. I still get excited to go teach a class. My children have grown up in the stroller. All they know is that mamas workout; they are sweaty and they are happy. Six years and counting on this FIT4MOM journey and I have never looked back. ;)
