We are excited to announce our MOM (Motivating Mom of the Month) for October! 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 Nancy Jakubowski. Nancy is our Motivating Mom of the Month for October! Nancy is an inspiration for our entire village. Nancy is mama to Max & Zac and is a wonderful part of our village!
"I love having Nancy in class. She is always smiling and she is so kind and welcoming to new moms and kiddos. Nancy, I am so glad that you found FIT4MOM and you are a part of our village." - Instructor Jen
We asked Nancy a few questions, and here is what she had to say:
Who are the members of your family?
My husband is Maciej (Mac), first born is Maximilian (Max) and baby is Zachary (Zac).
When did you come to your first FIT4MOM Palos Verdes & San Pedro workout and who or what got you there?
At 7 weeks postpartum (late July). I couldn't wait to start working out and find some new friends. I found a post card in the Yellow Vase restaurant on Western and contacted FIT4MOM almost immediately.
What is your FIT4MOM why - what keeps you coming to workout, keeps you involved?
I loved the idea of bringing my baby with me to get fit. I didn't have to leave him with someone and instead could take care of both of us at the same time. What an awesome example and opportunity practically in my back yard.
What is one of your favorite exercises you have done with FIT4MOM?
Cupid Shuffle (The 'dance' we do using our small resistance bands). Also the millions of different squats we do :-)
- Favorite workout song? 5 little ducks, rainbow, and firetruck songs
- Best snack before a workout? No doubt - English muffin with PB&J
- Most delicious dessert you have ever had? There are way toooo many, but the best almost always have chocolate incorporated somehow!
- I feel like ____________ after a FIT4MOM® workout. I feel happy after a FIT4MOM workout.
Before I had kids, I said I would never _________________ but now I ________________________. Before I had kids, I said I would never drive a minivan but now I own a minivan.
Any advice for other moms out there?
Everything is a phase and don't be afraid to ask other moms for input/advice.
