Moms In Motion, Inc. is a national women’s health and fitness community based on three basic principles: fun, fitness and philanthropy. It started when a group of eight women met in founder Jamie Allison’s Santa Barbara, CA living room and committed to train together for a triathlon in the summer of 1999. It has since grown to an organization of over 9,000 members nationwide. Members are encouraged to carve out personal time using fitness teams as the medium. Moms in Motion draws women of all ages and abilities, who come together to train for a culminating event.
Giving back to those who give the most is the heart of our organization. We understand that moms are the primary influence in today’s family. So it is vital that she takes care of herself first so she can be at her best in all her roles. Our job is to provide an outlet (and a plan to follow) where she can take care of herself through health and fitness, and enjoy new friendships and giving back opportunities as well. We believe fun, fitness and philanthropy are ingredients to health, happiness and gratitude. And if Mom is healthy and happy, her family tends to be too.
NJ’s first Moms in Motion kicked off right here in Bergen County in May 2012. We offer weekly coached workouts (Saturday mornings), nutrition and fitness education, seminars, unlimited motivational support and perks from our sponsors (Capello Salon in Waldwick, Personal Best Rehab in Ho-Ho-Kus, etc). Each season ends with a culminating event (5K/8K/10K/Half Marathon) decided individually by each team member.
