March 2018 Motivating Mom of the Month!!

March's Motivating Mom needs no introduction because if you have ever participated in any of our Stroller Strides or Stroller Barre classes over the last four years, it is highly likely you have met this amazing mama! One of our longest standing members, this soon to be mama of three is so special to Our Village. Brittany we love you and admire you and are so excited to be celebrating YOU this month!

Here is what our Instructor Team has to say about Brittany:

"We could not be more pleased or proud to recognize Brittany as she approaches her 500th class and becomes this month’s Motivating Mom! There is so much to admire about this beautiful boss mom, including her great “roll up my sleeves, get it done” attitude and her ability to maintain her sense of humor in the thick and thin of motherhood. Brittany doesn’t compare herself to others but instead stays true to herself and to her vision for her family. She is consistent and hard working. It is truly remarkable how much she accomplishes as a soon-to-be mom of three!! She makes it look so easy while keeping it so real. Brittany has strength of body, character and heart. She shows us what the FIT4MOM “Strength in Motherhood” is all about. Our Village would not be what it is without Brittany. We love and thank you so much"!! - Instructor Sarah

"Honoring Brittany as this month’s motivating mama is a no brainer. She has been a constant welcoming member of our village since I started coming to classes and I’ve always appreciated her down-to-earth sense of humor. It’s clear how important her family is to her and her dedication shines through in her workouts as well. It’s amazing to think that she’s approaching her 500th class! Be it because of her example of motherhood, her effort in class, or her kindness towards other mamas in our village, Brittany is certainly deserving of this month’s recognition! Congratulations"! - Instructor Carolyn

"Britt was one of the first moms I met when I started SS. She was very welcoming and made me feel like this was something I wanted to be a part of! It definitely helped that our superhero-loving boys also hit it off right away and our littles love to chase each other around! Then when our husbands met they hit it off right away as well! I love this Boss Mom and her family! I have loved getting to know you and your family as well as watching you start and grow your business! How awesome is it that you are approaching your 500th class?! I am so proud of you, keep up the great work"! - Instructor Kat

"Boss Mama Brittany deserves to rock this title as our Motivating Mom of the month as she is fierce and fabulous in every way! Brittany comes to class with style, strength, and support for every mom around her. She is a model of motherhood for all of us and shows it time and again (actually, almost 500 times!) through her no nonsense workouts, constant loving on her children, and her role as a welcoming, supportive pillar of our village. You deserve to be honored today and every day for all you are and do and we are honored to celebrate you"! - Instructor Lisa

"Brittany is truly a dedicated, FIT4MOM-Mom!! She is always at class, putting her ALL into the exercises, and is forever ready to engage in friendly conversations with other Moms. I have learned so much from Brittany about parenting and motherhood over the last two years! Nothing ever seems to phase Brittany, whether it is continuing an exhausting work out, mommying her two active children, or even adding a third to the mix! Congratulations Brittany! We, your village, love you! - Instructor Meg
