As a Mom
it is tough

(And since you are a Mom, you can probably come up with a million reasons why you cannot justify spending the time on YOU!)

As a Mom, it’s
to carve out
time for yourself.

(And since you are a Mom, you can probably come up with a million reasons why you cannot justify spending the time on YOU!)

We understand.

We know what it’s like to be at the bottom of your own priority list.
But you deserve to be the healthiest, happiest version of yourself you can be.

You deserve to exercise.

Yes, we said deserve.

Exercise should not be a punishment; it’s a reward for being an important person to your family and part of prioritizing your self-care and health.

Think of it like loving your body healthy.

All of us want to see you strong and feeling fantastic!

We are your coaches and your cheerleaders.

Stuti Mukherjee
Virtual Gym Manager/Client Support

Stuti is our lively LYB virtual gym manager; here to support you and cheer you on! Stuti started off as one of Kate’s Virtual Bootcampers and  fell in love with this unique fitness program designed by Kate and her wonderful LYB team.

After spending a year as an LYB client, Stuti joined the LYB Success Team to support and encourage other moms along their fitness journeys.

In Stuti’s own words, “Doing these virtual sessions regularly have helped me get stronger, fit and gain self confidence over the time. Therefore, I would encourage busy moms and individuals to use these virtual and in-person training sessions and benefit from them like how I did. I am more than happy to help, motivate and cheer you throughout your fitness journey.”

“I’ve never been stronger.

The online classes have provided the anchor in my day that I’ve needed. As a former varsity athlete, I love pushing my body hard.

Before I was struggling to make it to the in-person classes and was lacking the motivation to push myself hard when working out on my own. Now, I’m regularly doing the online classes on my own, recorded or live, four-to-five times week. I’ve never been stronger and feel super connected to the other moms in LYB community.

My kids like to watch me do the classes and I’ve even found them doing burpees in their own! I’ve recommended the classes to just about everyone I know!

– Danielle Simpson, mother of 2, Ottawa

It is time to take care of YOU!
