More About FITMOM
Andrea Page founded FITMOM in April 2000, one year after her first son was born. The birth of FITMOM was the result of her own personal struggle to overcome severe postpartum depression in her first year as a mom. She found exercise to be the key to her survival and wanted to help support other new moms on their journey to health and wellness in their postpartum years. Throughout her career, Andrea has been deemed an International expert on prenatal and postnatal fitness and was selected to collaborate on “Healthy Beginnings”, a guide published by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Of Canada, to help women achieve a healthy pregnancy. She has written hundreds of articles and, alongside other experts, developed the curriculum to train all FITMOM coaches and licensees. Over the years Andrea has inspired and motivated thousands of women to work towards improved health with a special focus on mental, physical and spiritual health for the new mom. As the mom of three boys, Andrea understands the challenges and needs of new moms and is constantly searching for solutions to help moms build their community support.
