Worried about not fitting in or being to quiet? Meet Cassie..."So, being an antisocial, boring, very quiet introvert, I just have to say how excited I am that Toshia Brown talked me into going to the free Fit4Mom class. I officially joined this awesome group of Mamas and I'm actually in awe of how comfortable I feel while with them! It's been a while since I felt like I was part of something. Thank you Fit4mom Asheville and every other...

Not sure we are the right fit for you? @Cassandra says otherwise! "FIT4MOM Asheville for me is something to look forward to. I work 4 days a week and attend class on Friday mornings. The thought of that great workout with a group of phenomenal women who share motherhood in common, gets me through the week. I am the old mom, the one who has already been through the sleepless nights and teething, but I find myself thinking each time I join...

Toshia shares her love for FIT4MOM Asheville here: "An uncomplicated community is how I would describe Fit4Mom Asheville. I was a new mama struggling with depression and anxiety when I found this amazing group of women who saw more in me than I did, myself. I thought I was going to a workout. I was terrified that I would be judged for how I looked or I would be the slowest one. But when I showed up for my first class, I felt like I was...

Our original mama member, Sarah Groleau , says, "Fit4Mom Asheville is exactly what I needed being new to the area. Not only have I loved the fun and challenging workouts, but the community that I have become a part of because of it has been priceless. I've never been a part of a group of moms who are so open, supportive, and welcoming. There is never any judgment, in regards to fitness abilities or in parenting. Everyone truly respects one...

Kair.jpg

Our long-time mama member, Kari, says this of her experience with Fit4Mom Asheville, "I really needed to find a place where I could exercise and not have a ton of mom guilt weighing over me. As a dancer, I've never coped well with a lack of movement. When I gave up teaching dance to be a mom it left me feeling very isolated. Fit4Mom Asheville brought me out of that isolation. Fit4Mom Asheville has given me an affordable way to stay moving but...

"Not about perky breasts, but that’s ok 😊" says our mama & instructor Jessica Meinch. "One year ago, when I joined Fit4mom, I was looking for a community. As a homeschooling mom, it was important to find somewhere I could bring my children along, connect with other mamas, and get a good workout as I started my journey into self care.

The instructors are all moms and the workouts were designed for my postpartum body. For the first...

Natalie.png

Passionate. That was the word I thought when I met Natalie Grinnell. Natalie was one of the first to welcome me with open arms to the Asheville fitness scene. I also knew upon our first meeting that I needed to keep in touch with her because there was no way I wasn't going to figure out how to be more involved with her. She's simply a joy to be around.

When I sat down with Natalie to talk about FIT4MOM and BeatuyCounter, two adventures...

Caitlin is dedicated to being a strong example for her baby girl through her workouts, nutrition, and faith. Even though she drives almost 45-minutes for class, you can expect to see Caitlin in at least 4 classes a week, even when the roads are icy and schools are...

It’s always a great sign when a person who enjoys “working” goes quiet.

I haven’t blogged in almost a full year and a lot has happened: a kindergartener, a move into town, multiple job projects, a life-evolution, new doors, good food, great company, planes, trains, and automobiles. I have not been out-and-about on the fitness scene quite as much as I have been in years past; much of my work-focus has been “behind the scenes” & I...
