Meet Run Club Coach Laura Weiglein

Laura is mama to William (almost 4) and Anna (13 months) and wife to Tad (11 years and counting!). Laura loves running, binge watching Netflix, traveling, red wine and any beer except IPAs. Fun facts: She's lived in three countries and four states, but thinks Minnesota is home for good.

We are so thankful that Laura joined Our Village a year ago and became our first Run Club leader this Spring! Come join Laura at Run Club this Summer!

Southdale kiddos.jpg

Had to share this picture of our kiddos having fun at the Southdale Center play area after class! We're SO MUCH MORE than just a fitness class - both mamas and kiddos get much needed socialization!

Come visit us at Linden Hills Park, Oberlin Park, and Veterans Park during the week - all three have great playgrounds for the kiddos to burn off that energy after class!

Meet Kate O'Dwyer

When a woman becomes a mother, we often forget who she was before motherhood. Isn't it funny how tummy-time and breastfeeding or baby babbles and bottle warnings suddenly "define" who we are as a human postpartum? That's why we're vowing to share real mamas within our communities, both inside and outside of mamahood. Today, we want you to meet Kate O'Dwyer who is a longtime member of our FIT4MOM Twin Cities village, but is also mama to Emmett and Garrett, wife to Darren O'Dwyer. Before joining our village and before having babies, Kate was a Compliance Officer and Business Team Manager where she maintained compliance with various government state and federal laws, ran office operations, including supervision of staff and human resources. Today she is a stay at home mom who juggles two kids, staying fit, and developed a passion for home improvement projects. We are so thankful Kate is part of our #FIT4MOM family, and she is a shining example of one powerful boss babe!

We had so much fun at Athleta - 50th and France at our Body Back Demo Class on Sunday!! We filled the room and had so much fun with other mamas! We even pulled off a plank push-up waterfall!

Meet Colleen Beatty

Every day our sweet village amazes us more and more, and it's because of WHO not what or why. Today, we want to share a little extra lovin' on Colleen Beatty, one of our FIT4MOM Twin Cities instructors! You can find Colleen teaching Stroller Strides and FIT4BABY. Colleen is a mama to Finn, wife to Joe, and loves new running shoes, good beer, and making her husband laugh. Fun fact; she grew up on an organic vegetable farm, and she's loved kale since before it was cool! She's been teaching within our village for 11 months, and we are so grateful to have her part of our FIT4MOM family! We love you, Colleen!
