We are excited to announce our MOM (Motivating Mom of the Month) for April! Each month we take a moment to recognize one of our local FIT4MOM Palos Verdes & San Pedro mamas for her hard work and dedication to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Meet Nia Young. Nia is our Motivating Mom of the Month for April! Nia is an inspiration for our entire village. Nia is mama to Charlotte and is a wonderful part of our village!
"Nia is a very warm-hearted mama! She keeps it real and is so relatable as a mom friend. She shows amazing strength and I love working out with her." - Instructor Jenna
"I was so happy to hear that Nia was going to be April's Mom of the Month! She has a kind heart, easy-going personality and a secret super-power strength (climbing the walls, lol). I also enjoy hearing fun stories about her baby girl, Charlotte 😊" - Instructor Domini
"Nia is full of positive energy. She genuinely cares about the other moms and kiddos in our village. Both her and Charlotte always have smiles on their faces. I love watching little Charlotte play with the other kiddos after class. We love having you and Charlotte in our village!"- Instructor Jen
We asked Nia a few questions, and here is what she had to say:
Who are the members of your family?
Mark, Nia and Charlotte
When did you come to your first FIT4MOM Palos Verdes & San Pedro workout and who or what got you there?
We just moved to this area last June and I needed to hang out with other moms. I googled Mom groups and came across the Fit4Mom Long Beach at first which led me to the San Pedro/Palos Verdes group. I was excited since it’s close to the house.
What is your FIT4MOM why - what keeps you coming to workout, keeps you involved?
I joined because I needed to be around people who are going through the same thing. Most of my friends don’t have kids so it was hard to share or vent to them and I also needed new Mom friends who live in the area.
What is one of your favorite exercises you have done with FIT4MOM?
I love any upper body exercise because i need the strength to carry flailing toddler around.
Any advice for other moms out there?
Find your tribe. Find your support. I guarantee that the mom next to you is going through the same thing. Being a mom can be isolated but it doesn’t have to be when you’re surrounded by a village of moms.
