Fitness & Motherhood

As you know I am the owner of Fit4Mom Fredericksburg, a business that provides fitness to mothers in all walks of life.  It is truly the best job in the world; I am able to take my kids with me, meet amazing women and children who are some of mine and my children’s best friends and make fitness a part of our daily lives.  This August I have will have owned the business for four years and feel like it has flown by!  Throughout these years there have been the usual ups and downs with owning your own business, but there have been many more ups!

The business has grown in so many ways and I am excited about the direction we are headed!  I am offering more Stroller Strides classes than ever, fun playgroups and monthly Mom’s Night Outs that are always well attended!  I recently launched a new program, Body Back that is a results based program for women only.  I have two great instructors that teach classes throughout the week to allow me to focus on the business side of Fit4Mom.  I have dedicated moms who have been by my side since opening Fit4Mom.  I have a supportive family that helps pass out flyers and run through workout routines with me.  Without all of this support I am not sure where the business would be today and I am so grateful for everyone’s constant help and support.

With all of this amazing growth comes exciting opportunities!  I am so pleased to announce that Fit4Mom Fredericksburg is partnering with the Children’s Museum of Richmond Fredericksburg location to bring Fitness Fridays to CMoR Fredericksburg!  We will be offering fitness activities for the whole family.  During this class moms and children will get a chance to exercise together while we incorporate songs and games to make fitness fun!  This event is free with museum admission and will be offered every other Friday for the summer.  Anyone that joins Fit4Mom after taking a class at the museum will have their registration fee waived!  The first class is July 11 from 10:30-11:30, we will be offering three 15 minute sessions during this time.

As a family we have been to the new Children’s Museum numerous times since they have opened and my kids both love it!  What better way to enjoy your Friday than let the kids play in the  grocery store, dentist office and diner of the museum mixed in with a morning workout from Fit4Mom!  Check out the link below for more information or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

From a small beginning, Cathy Weise of the Ron Rosner YMCA has developed an ambitious three-race series for kids for this summer, with the help of The Great Train Race, Shannon Airport, Dominion Raceway & Entertainment, the Fredericksburg Area Service League and Race Timing Unlimited.

Great Train Race Director Jennifer Taylor was one of the first on board.
