BORN OUT OF NECESSITY – fitmommy arrived shortly after Debbie Ross’s second child in August 2010. Having been passionately involved in sport and wellness for all her life, she was surprised at how difficult it was to find a proper way and a place to exercise safely during her pregnancy and to continue at the same fitness institute later on as a mom. Ross searched the Gauteng area for pre and post natal fitness classes that could incorporate her and baby together. After extensive research, she was unable to find a challenging workout that didn’t require hiring a personal trainer (like herself) and a baby sitter (at an additional cost) or purchasing a gym membership(having to leave baby crying in the crèche). Drawing from her own experience as a Qualified Personal Trainer - IFP, Group Trainer, Triathlete and Mother of two she developed fitmommy to balance the fitness needs of moms to be, new moms and veteran moms with their desire to spend time with their baby whilst getting fit.

She realized that pregnant woman, new and experienced moms have unique physical and emotional needs that require special support. fitmommy promotes the benefits of exercise in a healthy pregnancy as well as advocates the closeness and enjoyment moms can experience while exercising with infants and toddlers. fitmommy embraces the philosophy that fitness when combined with a health-conscious attitude provides the balance required to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle while juggling motherhood and other responsibilities.
