Name: Fit4Mom Central Bucks
Location: Warrington, PA
Exercise Type: Body Back – Note: This is an 8 week program, but we only participated in one night. For the full 8 weeks, the women who sign up for this class have two live workouts a week, and one online workout. The program also provides nutritional guidelines, as well as weigh-ins and measurements. There is an accountability Facebook group, where the women can post their progress to help them stay on track.
The class is structured as a HIIT (high intensity interval training) class. There were stations set up around the room which consisted of burpees, squats, planks, side planks, high knees, and dumbell curls/presses to name a few, and we did each one two times. Each station had 3 exercises made up of cardio, strength training, and core work. See example below.
They were strategically set up to help you burn calories, and then tone you as you caught your breath. And then there was core work… you know mamas love core work! Let’s just say that this class is NO JOKE (see calories burned below). It makes sense why all of the moms are coming to this class to get their “body back,” and all of the moms in the class looked fantastic! After hearing them talk, they felt fantastic too!

Welcoming: Extremely! We got there about 15 minutes early, so we got the chance to talk with Emily before class. She filled us in on the programs and classes they offer, and was so passionate about the classes. Once the other women got there, they were so friendly to us! We all went around the room and said how many kids we had, how old they were, and their name(s). It was crazy how comfortable we felt with them!
Unique Features: Yes. Two things really stuck out to us. 1) There was such a sense of community and friendship. We figured all of the women knew each other outside of class, but they had all met at class. That says something about the programs Fit4Mom offers. They create friendships because everyone has a common theme… kids! It is so easy to talk about kids once you have one, and it is comforting to know that other moms are going through the same things you are. 2) The support and accountability the moms get and receive is something that we should all take part in. Every mom knows that having a baby is life changing, not just emotionally, but physically too. There are so many times we look in the mirror and say, “Ugh! I wish I had my pre-baby body back.” It is so comforting to know that we are not alone in our thoughts, and it is even better to have the support and encouragement from other moms who feel the same way. We both wish that we would have known about all of the classes Fit4Mom Central Bucks offers after we had our kids!
Moms, soon-to-be moms, or women thinking about becoming a mom soon, check out the programs Fit4Mom Central Bucks has to offer. Not only will you get your “body back,” you will also develop friendships with other moms just like you! Thank you so much for having us! The next class on our list for Fit4Mom is Stroller Barre… we can’t wait to come back and shake with you!
