Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
In 2001, Lisa Druxman became a mom and an entrepreneur. She was looking for a way to blend her passion for fitness with motherhood. “I decided to create a workout that I could do with my baby,” she recalls. “I didn’t want to miss a moment of his new life but also knew that I needed to take care of myself.” It was one beauty of a brainstorm. Lisa created an exercise routine for new moms and realized that other mothers would benefit from working together to restore their well being. In 2003, FIT4MOM became a franchise and is now offered all over the U.S.
