Where are you originally from and how long have you lived in the area?
I grew up in Hill Country Ranches off 2325. I went to middle school in Wimberley and graduated High School from Dripping Springs. After graduating from Texas State in 2013 I moved around a bit. My husband and I landed back near Wimberley in 2019.
Tell us about your business.FIT4MOM is the nation’s leading prenatal and postnatal fitness program, providing fitness classes and a network of moms to support every stage of motherhood. From pregnancy, through postpartum and beyond, our fitness and wellness programs help make moms strong in body, mind, and spirit.
We offer workouts for moms with the option to bring kiddos or come solo. We make our workouts fun for both mamas and kids. It’s a great way to get out of the house, connect with other moms, and get a workout in, without having to find a sitter.
In addition to workouts, we have playdates, field trips, Moms Night/Days Out, and family days, that are all open to the community. FIT4MOM is all about creating a space for moms to come together in friendship, fitness, and motherhood.
What brought you to open your business? What did you do previously?
When I had my first baby I was in real estate doing sales plus working remotely 40/hours per week on staff with my brokerage. Working with my son at home was doable at the time. When I had my daughter 17 months later I was looking for something more flexible that wouldn’t tie me to my computer 40 hours a week. During maternity leave I searched for mommy and me groups in the area and found FIT4MOM New Braunfels. It was a bit of a drive, but I tried a class and went to a playgroup and loved it! When I found out it was a franchise I knew this is what I wanted to do. A job being my own boss, where I could include my kids and create fitness and connection opportunities for other moms? Yes Please!
When did the idea of creating your business start? How long have you been in business? What was your inspiration to start?
Once I found out FIT4MOM was a franchise I started planning to purchase. I opened in Wimberley in November of 2022.
What do you enjoy most about being an entrepreneur?
I love being my own boss and being able to create my own schedule around hectic mom life.
What makes you unique?
There’s really not another opportunity like FIT4MOM offers. We welcome kids at our workouts and interact with them during. We bring moms together that are in the same phase of life. We offer playdates and Mom events that are open to the community.

What is your favorite part about what you do?
Seeing moms make friends and share similar experiences and seeing our kids make friends and grow up together.
What does the future look like for you and your business?
Right now we only have workouts in Wimberley. In the future we will expand to San Marcos and Dripping Springs.
What advice would you give to others that want to start something new?
Follow your dreams and trust your gut. When you fall down, get back up and keep going! Put in the work and the results will come.
Any advice for juggling all the things in daily life?
Give yourself all the grace. Do the best you can and know that it’s enough. If you can, outsource the things you can’t get done, or don’t enjoy doing.
