We are so excited to announce our MOM (Motivating Mom of the Month) for April! 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....Priscilla Sullivan!
Priscilla is a champ! She works hard every class and pushes herself to get the best workout! Her girls are so lucky to have a strong momma like her. I love having her in classes! ~ Instructor Andie
Priscilla is so dedicated to her health and fitness and she shows that by consistently making Stroller Strides part of her daily routine. I love how she comes ready for a challenging workout and sets such a great example for her daughters and son by starting her day off strong. Priscilla is loving her journey through motherhood and she is setting a great example for all of her children. She is an inspiration to Our Village with her positive and determined attitude. Thank you for being such a wonderful part of Our Village! ~ Instructor Colleen
Priscilla is an awesome mom and example to her kids. She is dedicated and makes every effort to be at classes— and to WORK when she is there! She is so fun to talk to and welcomes other moms with a smile. I love having her in my classes and taking classes with her. ~ Instructor Liz
We asked Priscilla a few questions so we can all get to know her better, and here is what she had to say:
Who are the members of your family?
The Sullivan family: Me, my husband Matt, our son Matthew Jr. (MJ) (10) & our 3 daughters, Kaylie(6), Lyla(3) and June(1)
What is/was your career?
I was the Marketing Coordinator for Metro Bobcat, where my husband works in sales! I still work two days a month doing some things but have officially been a stay at mom for almost 2 years now.
When was your first class, and what do you remember about it?
My first class was September 2017 at the outlets! I just remember feeling that “I’m hooked” feel! I hadn’t worked out and years but was always in sports my whole life. This was the closest thing I could get to that feeling of competitiveness with the kids in tow! I signed up that day and never looked back! I’ll also add that I felt like I was going to throw up because I hadn’t worked out that hard in forever!!! Haha
Where can we find you? What is your FIT4MOM routine these days?
I attend the Clarksburg classes at Arora Hills/Greenridge gym & the outlets. My normal schedule lately has been Monday, Tuesday & Thursday, Friday.
What is your favorite strides exercise?
My favorite exercise is anything that feels like a game!! Relays, weaving in and out of things, sprints! Short distance stuff!
What has being a mom taught you?
Being a mom has taught me to enjoy the little things.
List 3 of your favorite things.
truly, my kids, sports & painting
Give us a giggle- What is your funniest or most embarrassing mommy moment so far?
My most embarrassing mom moment! Hmmm...I was riding my sons hover board one evening. Thinking I was pretty cool because I was getting pretty good at it when I lost my footing and completely knocked the wind out of me falling straight on my back! I remember thinking to myself how did you just fall like that in front of all your kids and your husband! As they laughed at me!! Good times!!
Any advice for other moms out there?
My advice for moms, do you! Do what works best for you and your family, do what you feel is right. & who cares what anyone else thinks! ....And meet some mom friends that make mom life easier!
What would you tell someone who is considering attending their first #fit4mommoco class?
Just come give it a try! It was the best thing I ever did for myself and my kids! My favorite days are the days when I absolutely don’t feel like working out but go anyways. My entire day is instantly changed and I leave class feeling happy. If nothing else you get out of the house, you get fresh air, mommy talk and your kids get to play! Automatic great morning, every single time.
Thank you, Priscilla 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 May!
