FIT4MOM Continues To Expand In The South

Chattanooga Celebrates 2 Locations With Grand Opening Saturday

Monday, October 17, 2016

FIT4MOM - the world’s largest wellness company with programs exclusively designed for moms - expands its presence in the South with its newest locations in Chattanooga.  A grand opening at Coolidge Park on Saturday will include a free Stroller Strides class, Stroller Barre class, giveaways, prizes and refreshments. Co-owners Rachel McClellan and Ash Robinson will be on hand to meet fellow mamas and lead the stroller-based total body workout. 

Ms. Robinson is a Chattanooga native and FIT4MOM’s newly appointed CEO. “I am thrilled to bring the amazing FIT4MOM community to women and mamas in my hometown," she said.  "It’s an honor to collaborate with my awesome partner Rachel, who loves FIT4MOM, fitness and community as much as I do, and who wants to share our community and focus on well-being. From the business side, being a franchisee gives me deep insight into the processes, support and coaching our franchises need most.” 

Ms. McClellan is a Tennessee native, mom of two daughters, ages four and two, and relocated back to Chattanooga in 2015 after having been a client and instructor with the Chicago franchisee. As an avid athlete and advocate for communities for moms, Ms. McClellan knew she wanted to bring Fit4Mom to the South when she moved back.   

“This company created the community, which has changed the trajectory of my life,” said Ms. McClellan. “My hope is that I can facilitate something that will do for another mom, what FIT4MOM has done for me.” 

The public is welcome to attend the grand opening on Saturday from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at the Downtown/Northshore location: Coolidge Park, 150 River St.  

Classes will be offered Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 9:30 a.m. at the Downtown/Northshore location. Tuesdays and Thursdays classes will be offered at 9:30 a.m. at the Imagination Station/Wolftever Creek Greenway location, 4910 Swinyar Dr., Collegedale.  Both locations will begin offering classes the week of Oct. 24.

Roy Exum: Trump's Latest Delight

To be truthful, I am a longtime veteran of a bunch of “you versus me” squabbles and, if I do say, ... (click for more)
