Be an influencer!

So my heart and head has struggled with something this little guy said to me last night. Baffles me as I didn’t realize how much of a impact, or maybe I should say influence, this particular thing has had on him. {Granted he was tired. Maybe he’s like his Mommy and get emotional when overtired lol. But see that tear?! }


Laying in bed. Putting him to sleep. Out of the blue he says to me. “Mommy. I don’t want you working anywhere else”. I asked him what he meant. He responded. “I liked your studio. I don’t want you working anywhere else”.


Thank goodness it was dark because I began to ugly sob. I took my camera to take a picture of him with the flash to see what he was doing as I knew he was hiding his face. (Which lead to more photos and finally some funny faces and cheered up smiles) …


BUT this was the 1st image I got. I proceeded to give him a big squeeze and tell him how special he was and how special it was that he enjoyed the time at my studio and the memories flooded of those days. From announcing my pregnancy there by playing his heart beat through the stereo system for everyone, to him being in my belly and teaching right up until the day he was born, to him crawling and riding on my Roomba vacuum, to his first day being my big boy showman with Mommy & tumbling, to him building forts and creative obstacles for his own class and enjoyment.


This emotion has carried through the night and into today for me. Feeling so grateful, blessed, (& emotional) that I have influenced him, his young life, and memories with a fun healthy place and time.


Friends. As a fitness fanatic, instructor, coach, mentor, Mother, etc. —> Make healthy memories with your kiddos. They’re great for your heart and soul and theirs too!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
