This weekend I visited a small town on the Wisconsin River called Prairie Du Sac. A woman named Sue decided that she wanted to start up her own Fit Moms For Life community group. As you will hear in the interview, Sue has very little workout background and no special degree related to fitness. What she does have is a desire to get in better shape and meet new people in her community. We had 19 women show up for a 45 minute bootcamp and then a 45 minute talk I gave on what it takes to transform your body and stay that way for the rest of your life. Even after it was over, many women stayed an additional half hour just chatting. Out of this kickoff at least 2 groups formed, one that will meet in the evenings and one that will meet in the mornings.
Because they will be using my DVDs, there is no need for a specialized trainer to be there.
Not only did we get to share tons of laughs, but we started to form friendships that will hopefully continue to grow. If this sounds like something you might be interested in getting into your community email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get some info to you on starting your own group. Free to start!
In the past 2 weeks we have had about 30 new moms express interest in starting a group! I went out to lunch with one of my best friends this weekend and we were talking about the vision for the Fit Moms For Life communities and I was telling him that I would like to see 10,000 of these groups started within the next 4 years. Then I had an even better idea. What if we had a group for every McDonalds in America. So I went and looked and there are close to 14,000 McDonalds in the US alone and over 40,000 world wide. What do you say? Lets see if we can do it.
