Fit4Mom Chicago

Red Tricycle: Your community recently voted you “Most Invigorating Fitness Program” – what do your customers value most about your business?
Fit4Mom Chicago: Customers value the fact that we are so much more than an amazing workout! Motherhood can be lonely sometimes and we provide our clients with the village that they need to get through their week. We offer playgroups, craft time and mom’s nights outs as well as an awesome fitness program!

RT: What do you want people to know about your business that they don’t already know?
FC: Our workouts are not just a walk in the park. We offer hour long workouts with strength, cardio and core workouts with songs and entertainment for the kids woven in. We also aren’t just for brand new moms. Our program offers workouts for all seasons of motherhood.

RT: How did your business get started and what was the motivation?
FC: Fit4Mom was started by a mom who was looking for a way to workout with her child while owning her own business. It has since turned into a very successful franchise and can be found nation wide!

RT: Tell us, what do you start your morning with: 1. coffee 2. tea 3. mimosa 4. water 5. all of the above.
FC: Coffee!

RT: What is the most awesome thing a customer has ever done for you?
FC: I had a Ragnar team last summer and one of my customers started a campaign to acquire our nighttime running gear. It meant so much that she cared so much about her instructors and her village.

RT: How do you keep your stress levels down?
FC: Exercise!

RT: Tell us, what is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received (as a parent or business owner)?
FC: To always have mom-me time. I will be a better mom, wife and business owner if I take time for myself here and there. Even if just a 30 minute run, have some downtime on a regular basis.

RT: Is there a special offer you’d like to include for Red Tricycle readers?
FC: Yes! I’d love to offer Red Tricycle readers a free week of Stroller Strides! Email to redeem.
