October Motivating MOM of the Month

"Aneta is one of the strongest women I have ever met. She gives no less than 100% when she’s in class. During our stroller based classes, she makes mothering Victoria look so easy - she has it under control. Time for her and fun for her baby. I love it when Aneta tells stories of her motherland - Poland. We sort of have a kinship due to our European backgrounds - it’s great to connect in that way. I’ll always remember the day I met her and her precious NEW family in Occoquan. Yes, I’m a stalker of babies and moms - actually I think I approached her husband John first (outside of a coffee shop!) and he was enamored with our program and was excited to see Aneta gain friendships through motherhood. Aneta - THANK YOU for being such an inspiration to others around you - let the light continue to shine!" - Shannon Link, Franchise Owner

"Aneta is one strong mom!! She works so hard in every class she comes too. She has motivated a lot of moms, and including me!!" - Missy Greely, Stroller Strides and Body Back Instructor

" I love Aneta's energy and smile in every class she comes to (and she comes to a lot)! Our littles are a few weeks apart and it's been a blast getting to know them both. Plus her plank time is impressive!" - Joy Robb, Stroller Barre and Body Ignite Instructor

Who are the members of your family and where are you originally from?

My husband John and our baby girl Victoria 22-month-old. I am originally from Warsaw, Poland. I visited the USA for the first time in 2005, and moved here in 2007. I lived in Maryland, prior to moving to Virginia for work in 2016.

When was your first Fit4Mom class and what do you remember about it?

If I’m remembering correctly, my first class was in February 2018. My husband came for support (it was a weekend family friendly class). I didn't know what to expect, I just showed up for the free class. After the class my first thought was that the Moms really worked out hard. I could feel my muscles were burning...I liked it and I signed up!

Where can we find you? What is your Fit4Mom routine these days?

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, you can find me at the BB class in the Lorton studio, on Fridays I try to attend the playgroup at the Potomac Mills (sometimes I join STC). I love S360 classes. If my schedule allows me I drop in on Mondays, and sometimes on Saturdays.

What is your current job? Or what did you do before staying at home (if you don’t currently work outside the home)?

Currently, I am a SAHM. Before that, I was worked as an HR manager.

What are 3 of your favorite things?

Working-out, drinking coffee, and making my daughter laugh.

You are given 4 hours of FREE babysitting. What would you do?

Go on a date with my husband:)

What has being a mom taught you?

To be more patient, how to take 5-minute showers, and multitask in the kitchen.

What is your funniest or most embarrassing mommy moment so far?

I think the time when we were in the pool. The moment when I didn't catch her as she slid down. She slipped out of my hands and went straight under the water for a few seconds. I got scared, but when I took her out she was fine and surprisingly happy asking for more! I guess I can say thanks to swim lessons:)

Any words of wisdom for other moms?

Don't forget about yourself...go work out, meet with your friends, reset:)

What is your favorite thing about FIT4MOM? What would you tell someone thinking about joining?

It’s a great opportunity to make yourself get out of the house and to be around other moms. I love the fact that Fit4Mom allows you to work out with your kids. They offer such a variety of classes for your body and mind, and awesome events/field trips. I am always discovering fun stuff to do, or places to go thanks to our village! Not to mention the BB Transformation Program...I got my body BACK:)

I am so happy that Shannon found me because I don't know if my motherhood would look the same without Fit4Mom. You need to try it!
