Project Description

The mission of Fit As A Mother is to recognize and build on the inner strength of moms by providing fitness programs and removing childcare obstacles so that moms of young children can achieve the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

 

My name is Lhenee Riddick, and I am the Founder of Fit As A Mother. As a mom of three working in the childcare field, I know first hand what a struggle it can be for moms to focus on self-care.  I also know first hand how beneficial and therapeutic it is to have exercise in our lives.  I have been on my own personal fitness journey since the birth of my second son and it has changed my life. My workouts are often fit in bright and early before the kids wake up. I prioritize this time to myself, making it a non-negotiable, and I feel the positive results daily.  That's what I want for all moms. 

Exercise is incredibly important for women. Staying physically active not only reduces the risk of health conditions more likely to affect women, like heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes, but it also makes us feel better! Exercise releases endorphins that improve your mood and overall mental health, helping you feel more balanced and in control. In order to take care of those around them, moms first have to take care of their own health.

#FAAM was created to be more than a fitness center.  We seek to help moms meet their weight loss goals, but more than that, we provide a community of women working together to meet their overall health goals. We strive to create a judgement-free atmosphere and seek to empower all who join us, no matter their shape, size, age or level of fitness. We rely on instructors that have been on similar fitness journeys to help build our community.

 

We believe that moms should not have to choose between self-care and parenting. We offer fitness-based child care solutions to keep children safe and happy while their moms exercise. We seek to provide a safe space where women from all backgrounds can prioritize their own fitness, taking control of their health to achieve better outcomes in all other aspects of their lives. To put it shortly, we help moms use their children as their reason to remain healthy, and not as an excuse not to. 

The funds from this campaign will go straight to getting Fit As A Mother up and running; securing a desirable location to fit the needs of both the adults and the children, high quality equipment and building the best team to do the job.
