One Mom's Body Back Transformation: A Letter from A Husband

We love our various programs, because there truly is a class for every mama in any stage of motherhood. In January, many of our locations nationwide kick off Body Back Transformation, an 8-week result based journey. Learn more about Body Back here.

At FIT4MOM, we may be all about that mom life, but we sure love the amazing dads and partners that support the women that make our community so special, especially when it comes to support so moms can give TLC and time to themselves!

This week, for Transformation Tuesday, Charlie, husband of FIT4MOM Louisville's recent Run Club and Body Back grad, Ashley Gonzalez, wrote a letter to celebrate Ashley's Body Back transformation...


"Ashley joined our Run Club program in August after she found out a friend of hers had signed up. Little did she know at the time, but that decision made somewhat on a whim would have a profound impact on how the months to follow would unfold. One of her fellow Run Club mamas had just finished Body Back with results that wowed our entire Village! That was the push Ashley needed to make a change and she enrolled in the next session of Body Back right away. Fast forward a few months - lots of hard work, meal prepping, and dozens of workouts and miles later, Ashley has her own set of amazing before and after photos to share. In just 8 weeks, she lost nearly 30 pounds! We couldn’t be prouder of all she accomplished. Hard work pays off!" - FIT4MOM Louisville

Ashley's hubs, Charlie, gave us even more insight into her incredible journey. Body Back is not something that’s easy for mamas to do alone. Having support from your spouse and family is invaluable to a BB mama. Charlie was one of those partners that we all dream of having during Body Back - all in from the start! Here’s what he had to say:

After a year and half of various challenges for Ashley and myself, she had come to terms with PPMD, and decided to tackle fitness for both herself and our family...Seeing other mom’s transformations was the driving motivation for her, and she decided to jump in.

Still trying to lose a little weight myself and be supportive, I decided I would do my best to stick to the meal plan for Body Back and help her with shopping, prepping and staying on track. Working together made the food portion of the program more fun and (I think) easier on her; we teamed up to try and eat better. Ashley was an absolute sweets addict, so this was a massive challenge for her as she went through sugar withdrawals in week one. Once she got through it and started to see results, she was hooked on the program and stuck to the Body Back plan.

The group and coaching aspects of Body Back were also essential to her success. Having people she could turn to for support, advice, and even just other moms to vent to seemed to have a huge impact. She immediately fell into a mom tribe - a village.

We have received countless positive feedback from family and friends asking about “our secret,” or what kind of diet we were on, and we have praised Body Back and the FIT4MOM program endlessly. It is by no means an easy endeavor; like anything worth something, Body Back takes time, commitment, and support (along with the open understanding that Mom won’t be home some nights or some mornings because she is doing something for her!) We feel completely changed in so many positive ways, and totally recommitted to living healthily for ourselves and our child.

There is no area of our lives that hasn’t been positively impacted overall through FIT4MOM's Body Back program. We made necessary adjustments to our schedule and said no to a few meals here and there, but beyond that our lives have improved dramatically because of this program and this community.
