15 REASONS WHY I LOVE BODY BACK:

15. Everyone in the class is potty trained.

14. The only yelling and screaming is the instructor and it’s not a temper – tantrum.

13. Hair not brushed and same clothes as last class? Perfectly acceptable.

12. The only bodily fluid you will have on you at the end will be sweat and it probably will be just yours!

11. Adult music. Catch up on the current “in” music from the last several years since toddler tunes.

10. Adult conversation! No need to google how to get your baby to sleep through the night, just wait till next class.

9. No stinky gym and arriving super early to wait on a cruel, cold waiting list, you always have a spot in class.

8. Plagued by that chocolate bar staring you in the face every day? Don’t worry, you get daily reminders on what to eat.

7. Want a place where people listen to you complain how sore your butt is from last night and “like” it.

6. Tired of the gym instructor not knowing your name? Body Back instructors know what you ate last night for dinner and even the...

More Than a Number

How would you like to be stronger, leaner, healthier and be your best, YOU?

I highly recommend Fit4Mom Body Back program! You will lose body fat, take inches off your body, all while increasing muscle and your overall core strength.

Everyone wants to know where the end will take them before the beginning so my ending is introduced first to guarantee your beginning will start! Before starting BodyBack in September 2014, I ate extremely unhealthy, so much so I had severe reflux. When I ate the fatty, greasy, processed foods over the course of many years on a daily basis my body began to reject it. My throat began to close up and I would literally be close to choking during each food sitting. Having food get lodged in your throat, sometimes right in front of your kids and praying quietly for it to pass through so I can see them again is a very scary and emotional experience. I would cough to get the food to move down or try to take deep breaths so I could get air while walking around my home frantically screaming inside. Still I...
