Meet Felisha Hennessey of FIT4MOM-Riverside

Today we’d like to introduce you to Felisha Hennessey.

Felisha, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
FIT4MOM-Riverside is a pre and post natal fitness franchise and I stumbled across it after the birth of my first baby in 2011. I decided to try a class and fell in love with the concept! I got to work out WITH my baby!

The classes are led by certified fitness instructors and you can go at your own pace. I got to meet other moms in my neighborhood and my kid (now kids) has grown up with some amazing friends!

FIT4MOM ended up being my passion and when the opportunity to purchase the franchise came about, I jumped at it!

I had never run a business before but I knew I loved everything about the franchise and was determined to make it successful.

I’ve definitely fumbled a lot and I’ve learned so much over the past few years but I have an amazing dream team in place and they are truly the backbone of this franchise. I’ve learned that I can’t do everything and that it’s totally acceptable to ask for help and utilize someone else’s strengths when I fall short. FIT4MOM-Riverside would not be what it is today without the constant support of the fabulous instructors, playgroup captains and managers that make us home to so many mamas!

Has it been a smooth road?
The biggest struggles I’ve faced have aroused when I haven’t been true to who I am and what I want my business to be. When I let someone or something steer my business in a direction that I don’t absolutely love.

Keeping a clear vision of what I want FIT4MOM-Riverside to be to the mamas who trust us with themselves and their kiddos has been key to avoiding those pesky bumps in the road.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are fitness for moms in EVERY stage of motherhood! Plain and simple. Whether you’re 5 minutes pregnant or your kids are in college, we have a fitness program for you and an amazing village of moms who are your support system!

FIT4MOM-Riverside is proud to bring moms together. In a time where motherhood and your parenting choices are constantly challenged on social media, we’re a real place where real moms come to share their stories, their experiences, to connect with each other and form lasting relationships.

That’s what sets us apart from other fitness centers. Our ability to laugh and cry with our moms, to be raw and real with them in the same way that they are with us! We are so much more than just fitness!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
I love Southern California and there’s such amazing opportunity here! Whatever your business is, start it and give it your all. Wherever you’re at!
