About Fit Healthy Momma
Hello and welcome! I’m so happy you’re here.
I'm Tami, CEO of Fit Healthy Momma
I’m Tami, owner, and founder of Fit Healthy Momma. I created the Fit Healthy Momma brand because I was tired of hearing all the noise on the internet - it seems like everyone has an opinion on women’s health and fitness, but most people are only out there to make a buck. Not to mention, there are so many new brands that all seem to be doing or selling something similar - how do you know which ones to trust?
I decided to create a space where real women and moms can come to get real, legitimate information and reviews about health, wellness, and fitness D2C (direct-to-consumer) companies. I review products and programs that I have either personally used and loved or that I have researched extensively and know that they provide value.
I invite you to take a look around, sign up for my newsletter, and reach out to me if you have any questions. Let’s work together to stay fit, stay healthy, and live our lives to the fullest!
How I Got Into Fitness, Health & Wellness
Shortly after I had my first son in 2016, my husband got a new job in a new state. I suddenly found myself in a new place with an infant son without any family or friends in the area for support.
I scoured the internet looking for mom groups, particularly, I wanted to find a mommy and me workout class since fitness has always been a passion of mine. Long story short, there was no such thing in the area where I lived. So, I decided to create it myself.
After earning my bachelor degree in Business at SUNY Cortland, I went “back to school” and received my ACE certifications in personal training and group fitness instruction. I also completed a specialized pre and post-natal fitness training that certified me to teach fitness classes for pregnant and new moms.
Soon after I received my certifications, I began teaching classes locally and loved it. I was doing for other mommas what I wish I had when I was pregnant and when my son was a baby - I was creating a community and space for women to get together, workout, and have fun.
Fast forward a year or so and I was ready to have another baby. Unfortunately, I struggled with infertility the first go around and faced the same issues trying for baby number 2. After months of doctor appointments, fertility treatments, and a miscarriage, I put my teaching on hold for a while. Teaching pregnant moms and moms with new babies is tough when you’re going through an infertility journey.
It was during this time that I discovered writing. I began a career as a freelance writer, writing for clients across all kinds of niches. I was making great money and loving the clients I was working for, but I felt like something was missing.
I missed fitness, community, and feeling like I was contributing to helping other women and moms just like me. I needed something that fueled me and sparked my passion - from this, Fit Healthy Momma was born, a combination of two of my passions.
I’ve since given birth to my second child and now work full-time from home with both of my kids, doing what I love. Blessed is an understatement.
