Motivating Mom of the Month-October 2022: Rylee French

"Rylee is mom extraordinaire. She makes it all look so easy. Her two little sidekicks are always by her side. I love how she incorporates self care by coming to all the things. Stroller Strides, field trips, and social events, we love having Rylee with us! Keep up mama - you got this!" Shannon, Franchise Owner

"Rylee & I connected right away because our littles are the same ages - so they get to be friends too!! I love seeing Rylee at workouts because she keeps it real & we can support each other through the hard phases our kids are going through & all the non-glamorous Mama moments! She definitely motivates me to show up even when I'm not feeling my best. I'm so super thankful for her in every way." -Jessica, Instructor

"Rylee is so fun and down to earth! She is always working hard and joking about how hard it is with a smile on her face. She is a stellar mama who makes all the other mamas feel welcomed with relatable conversation beyond small talk. Love her littles and how inspiring she is to be far from her roots and still create meaningful relationships here in NoVA." -Genevieve, Instructor

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

The community! I moved 2,200 miles from my family & didn’t know a soul. Thankfully I was introduced to F4M when I was falling into a dark PP hole. F4M helped me meet the most incredible moms who have become such good friends & I am forever thankful! Big shoutout to Jessica Khatib for inviting me to join!
