I’m the founder and CEO of Fit2B Studio, LLC at fit2b.com where we provide home fitness routines and resources for those who wish to get all-over strong starting with their cores! I believe exercise is supposed to be your warm up for life, and my personal mission is “Changing lives one tummy at a time.” Why? So you can look better in a swimsuit? Well, that’s a lovely side-effect of our workouts, but my heart is to help you be a stronger contributor to your family, community, and world! I believe your core matters because it’s at the middle of you, and you are in the middle of your home which is where your ability to make a difference in this world starts! If your middle is muddled, then everything you’re in the middle of – motherhood, ministry, making dinner (yes I love alliterations) – will be muddled by your middle’s muddling. Say that five times fast. Ha! Anyway, I live on a little farm in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and two children, 14 chickens, 3 goats, 4 cats, 1 shaggy pony, 1 Digory Dog and a Chihuahua named Charlie who is NOT allowed inside for very good reasons. My hobbies include reading very long historical fiction novels, natural homesteading, fermenting foods, race walking, crocheting rag rugs out of t-shirt yarn, a little bit of piano, and OF COURSE lifting heavy things and playing with exercise props! You can always find me at Fit2B where I hope you’ll also find a new perspective on working out that will create lasting changes in your body and mind!

What is the name of your current project / company?

Fit2B

Please describe for us in 1 sentence your current project.

Making fitness affordable, accessible and safe to postpartum women worldwide

Where did the idea of your current project come from?

After I had children, it was so much harder to get out to exercise. It was also harder to reclaim and restore my body. As a group fitness instructor, many clients and friends kept encouraging me to film or at least record my routines for people who can’t see me in person.

Why do you do what you do?

I do what I do because of that mom who is stuck in her house, unable to get out because of two needy little beggars that take longer to get ready than any errand she needs to accomplish.

What’s the one thing you wish you could go back and tell your younger self?

To go for my double major and get a minor while I was still in college. What’s one more semester of classes?

What’s the most important piece of advice would you give to someone just starting?

Be sure you really love what you’re doing. If you are passionate about your mission, you will never tire of pushing it, promoting it, because it will be as natural as breathing.

What is the hardest thing you have had to do regarding your business?

Let others do work that I {used to} believe I could do better myself. But I can’t do everything. I need to do the things that only I can do, the things that make my business the unique brand that it is, and let my team handle the rest.

What does your typical day look like?

I get up and supervise my kids doing farm chores while checking email, peeking at my facebook Facebook to be sure everyone is okay, and prioritize my day from there. We eat breakfast while going over school stuff, as I’m also a hybrid homeschooling mama. I teach the kids or take them to wherever they are being taught, and get work done between the cracks. No day is every the same. Sometimes I have a class to teach at night, sometimes I pedal my recumbent bike while moving weights around and watching netflix, sometimes I tumble around my living room making up new routines. I have a lot of flexibility in more ways than one, and I enjoy taking each day as it comes.

If you were to start again, and could change one thing, what would it be?

I would skip all the personal angst and self-doubt and just go for it.

What is the most important thing in life?

My family’s spiritual, emotional and mental well-being

What is one problem you encountered as an entrepreneur, and how did you overcome it?

We were the first to be doing what we were doing: online fitness subscription services with an angle on family-friendliness. Everything was new. I had to learn everything. So I learned it. Every day was a new obstacle to overcome, and I would just pray and dig in.

Tell us something unique about yourself.

I’m a bit of a prepper…
