We are so excited to introduce you to Rebekah - the visionary behind Fit4Mom Space Coast! Read on to learn all about the programs and community support offered by Fit4Mom in our area and how you can join in - there is a "fit" for everyone!
"What is Fit4Mom?"
FIT4MOM is the nation’s leading company for pre and postnatal health, wellness, and fitness programs for every stage of motherhood. From pregnancy through postpartum and beyond, our fitness and wellness programs help make moms strong in body, mind, and spirit.
Fit4Mom provides mom with the support, community and self-care she needs during pregnancy, postpartum and throughout every stage of her motherhood journey, we believe these moms will raise healthy, strong families. FIT4MOM is more than a fitness franchise; we believe in building communities through connecting with local families, businesses, entrepreneurs, and neighborhoods.
"How did you get started with Fit4Mom?"
Previous to FIT4MOM, I was a PE teacher and Athletic Director at a local private school. In March 2017, I found out I was pregnant with my 2nd child and had to decide if I wanted to continue down that path or possibly enter back into the K-3 classroom. One day while I was out on a run with a parent of a student, they mentioned Stroller Strides and asked if I ever heard of it because she thought it would be something I would enjoy. I had never heard of it so I went home that evening, googled, and fell in love with the company. I instantly felt drawn towards the business model/mission and a feeling in the pit of stomach telling me this is what I have been searching for as a working mama and someone really wanting to make a difference in peoples lives! I loved the opportunity of being able to be a SAHM (Stay at home mome) and business owner! Less than a month later, after a final interview and professional training in pre and post natal fitness, I became the owner of FIT4MOM Space Coast in May 2017 and we had our grand opening in August 2017 when I was THIRTY weeks pregnant. I had almost 80 moms come out that day and that event ignited my drive and my hope for this business and all the local women it could impact. I made it my mission to reach #allthemoms of Brevard and figure out how to support other local businesses along the way!

Bring your kiddos with you in the stroller or leave the kiddo at home and come play with your mom friends. Either way, the hour will fly by and leave you energized for the rest of your day!
Combining cardio, strength, core, and meditation, Body Boost™ is the perfect workout for mom’s mental and physical health.

"Tell us about you and your family."
I was born and raised on the Space Coast in Satellite Beach and my parents still live in my childhood home where we hang out on the regular!. I attended UCF for Hospitality Management and then later discovered I wanted to be a teacher when living in St Augustine. I went back to school while I lived there and received my professional teaching certification. I moved back to Brevard to pursue teaching in 2010, taught beachside until discovering FIT4Mom in 2017. I have always loved exercise, especially group exercise attending Zumba, Yoga, and other classes local gyms offer. I love everything about the beach--family days and solo walks! We love being outdoors and active on our family skateboards or bikes.
We have a secret love for food truck grub! I've been with Pat, my husband, for 7 years and we have an 8 year old girl Carsyn, 3 year old Clare, and almost one year old Connor.
"What is your ultimate vision for Fit4Mom Space Coast?"
My big dream is to completely saturate the entire county with my classes and programs. This means adding Palm Bay and south county zip codes as well as adding Titusville, Merritt Island, and the remainder of the north county as well. I also hope to have a brick and mortar studio within the next 5 years, centrally located in the county, to expand my classes into other early childhood learning opportunities. I dream for ALL Space Coast/Brevard mama's to be able access our classes in less than a 30 min drive! I want to continue to expand my scholarship program and make our programs available and accessible for any mama in need of a healthy community.

Cell phone: 321-591-7648 (I am HAPPY to talk to any mama out there who has questions!)
We strongly encourage you to try and think past all of those worries and "what if's" and just give a class or free playdate a try! Every one first class is free so there is nothing to lose. Your only regret will be "why didn't I try this sooner"?? So many moms have "myths" in their mind that they aren't in shape enough to workout with us, or their little one won't sit in a stroller, and so many more. We are all in the deep trenches of motherhood together. Nothing will shock us...we have heard and seen it all. Let us be there for you in this crazy journey of parenting, it's so much better with a village!! It's an amazing way to get to know like minded families in town and meet your future mama bestie!!! You will leave our classes feeling energized, empowered, and supported!!!
