Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Galipp.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I went to my first FIT4MOM class in March of 2013 when my oldest daughter was just a few months old and it was truly a life-changing day. As a new mom, I was desperately craving interaction with other moms, to get moving and help get the baby weight off and to find a village that would be there to support me as I tried to figure out what I was doing! The warm welcome that I received instantly validated my beliefs that this group was where I needed to be. I was an extremely active member for 4 years and really leaned on this group for love and support as I navigated this motherhood journey and welcomed 2 more babies! The classes led me to be in the best shape of my life but more important than physical strength, they gave me the emotional strength that I needed for motherhood. I decided to buy the franchise in December of 2016 when it was up for sale so that I could have a chance to provide the welcoming arms, love and support, just as had been given to me, to any and all moms that need it!
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Everything has gone very smoothly since I took over ownership! The moms were all so supportive during the transition and were really wonderful! As you can imagine, owning your own business and working from home with 3 kids under 5 has its challenges but I am right where I want to be, doing exactly what I want to be doing and best of all, I get to have my kids’ right alongside me for the entire ride!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with FIT4MOM Arlington/Mansfield – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
FIT4MOM’s mission is to help moms make strides in fitness, motherhood, and life! What really sets us apart from other workout programs is that we are trained in pre-natal and post-natal fitness and not only offer education in those areas but support moms to reach their optimal emotional well-being as well. We are working to inspire our children to emulate us and make fitness a part of their lives. We are here to help mom’s achieve their ultimate potential, both physically and emotionally.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
We are very excited to be launching our FIT4BABY prenatal specific workout program very soon as well as our Run Club to the list of our program offerings!
