We are so excited to announce our MOM (Motivating Mom of the Month) for August! Each month we will take a moment to honor one of our local FIT4MOM Montgomery County Moms for her efforts to lead a healthy lifestyle and for her dedication to the program. This month we honor Tien Tran!
"Tien is a very dedicated, strong and amazing person ! Fun to be around ! I love to hear all about her homemade food! Each time you see her or her kids snacking on something, it is probably made by Tien! I tried a few recipes she sent me ☺️ Absolutely great! I always laugh when she says that Lucas is a trouble maker, every time I see him he is like an angel 😇 " Instructor Ewa
We asked Tien a few questions so we can all get to know her better, and here is what she had to say:
1. Who are the members of your family?
My family includes Michael (my husband), Madeline (almost 5), Lucas (3), and myself.
2. What is/was your career?
I was a Portfolio Manager for an ETF company, now I'm a sahm.
3. How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM Montgomery County, and what has it done for you?
I've been a member for a year now. Before starting, I never did cardio because I didn't want to sweat. I started in August so I got over that real quick! It's made my life so much better, I've never felt stronger, more energized and happy! I love working out with other moms too. With everything that we go through, battling sleep, crying kids, etc we're all there and it's very motivating.
4. What is your favorite class exercise?
I love to run the stairs and rowing with the bands.
5. What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?
How happy I can feel just sitting and playing/tickling/talking to the kids.
6. List 3 of your favorite things:
Food, wine, and traveling.
7. What is your proudest mommy moment so far?
My proudest moment is when my kids say "you're the best mom" for no reason, then give me a kiss =) .
8. Any advice for other moms out there?
Kids are unpredictable, one day they ask for seconds of broccoli and the next day they hate it.
Thank you, Tien, for being such a valuable part of Our Village here at FIT4MOM Montgomery County! We truly appreciate you & the positive energy you bring to class and Our Village!
Check back to see who our MOM will be in September!
