You know the old adage, right? “If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!” And yet, so often as mothers, we put our mental and emotional health last on the priority list. For 2017, we at Nashville Moms Blog want to challenge you to choose you this year. Your husband doesn’t like green vegetables? Cook them anyway. You hate getting up at 5:00am to get in a quick at-home workout by yourself? Find a fitness community who will challenge and encourage you. You want to be a runner, but you hate running? Keep trying new things until you discover a fitness option that you love and look forward to doing each week.
Believe it can’t be done? IT CAN! You’ve got this, mama! You have our full blessing to CHOOSE YOU. Because if you choose to make mindful choices about your health and well-being, your family will follow. This isn’t just about choosing you for the sake of selfishness. This is about setting an example for the tiny people that love you so much and want you to live a long and fulfilling life as their mother.
We see you nodding your head, ready to get started, but wondering, “Now what?” We’ve got you covered! The following local gyms, camps, and studios offer fitness experiences that are perfect for busy moms. These programs will push you farther than you knew possible and provide you with a supportive community to help you achieve your goals. Many also provide excellent childcare for your kids or design programs that let you bring your little ones along!
The YMCA of Middle Tennessee
When you join the Y, you’re committing to more than a healthier you or a healthier family. You are supporting the values and programs that strengthen your community.
At the Y, children learn what they can achieve, families spend quality time together, and we all build relationships that deepen our sense of belonging.
Learn more about how you get so much more than a workout at the Y with a free three-day family membership.
