One year ago today I signed a document that made me the owner of a fitness business. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that this was something that I would ever do. Until it did become a wild dream. It became something I thought about every day for nearly 2 years. It is said that if your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough. I was scared. My dream was pretty big.
I always told myself that if I have at least one person show up to my classes and I can make a difference in that person’s day that will be enough.
But will they show up? Will they like the class? Will they like me? Can I make a difference? Can I do this and be a good mom to my kids? Can I juggle a business and still be a good wife? What if I fail?
Oh, but what if I fly! Oh, but what if they do come to class? What if they do like it? What if they do like me? What if I DO make a difference?
The past year has been filled with a great deal of hard work and preparation to make this dream fly. As soon as I signed on the dotted line as the owner of FIT4MOM Richland I felt a great weight of responsibility on my shoulders. Lisa Druxman started Stroller Strides 15 years ago and there is a reason that it is respected as the best pre and postnatal fitness program for moms in the country. There are many reasons. Entrusted with the FIT4MOM brand, I hold extremely high expectations for myself and what I provide to my community and Our Village. All the hard work and preparation has reaped so many rewards this past year as so many incredible women have come to classes and meet ups and made Our Village what it is today! There is absolutely no way I can ever adequately thank these moms that have shown up to join me on this adventure, but I must humbly and gratefully say THANK YOU! Thank you for being a part of this dream come true. Thank you for the trust. Thank you for the love. Thank you for the smiles. Thank you for your time. Thank you for the laughter. Thank you for the tears. Thank you for showing up when showing up was the hardest thing to do.
I am excited and invigorated for the year ahead and will strive to continue growing Our Village at FIT4MOM Richland and providing women with the strength they need for motherhood however they need it most!
With love and in stride,
