When I started Hot Mama I truly never understood the impact I could have in this world. I simply wanted to do something that I loved doing and teaching group exercise classes is a true passion of mine. I love teaching with every single cell of my body. It lights me up like nothing else can.
I then franchised Hot Mama because I saw the impact my little bootcamp company was having in the community I lived. Women were getting fit, were feeling supported and had found a place to meet other like-minded, non-judgmental Mamas. I was helping postpartum Mamas find themselves again through fitness, community, love and laughter. I realized that we could impact many more women and families and their communities if I had incredible women, who loved our Hot Mama brand, building similar communities where they lived.
But, the real magic was unleashed when we implemented our Postpartum Initiative. I’m going to be totally honest here, when the idea was first presented to me, I saw it as an incredible way to get more Mamas to class. I knew once they tried us, they’d stay (if they could). Never ever did I realize that we would end of saving lives and helping thousands of women crawl out of the darkness that is postpartum depression. Never did I realize that this initiative would change the lives of so many women, including myself.
What is the PPI?
Our PPI offers FREE classes to Mamas between 8 – 24 weeks postpartum. They have access to two classes per week for four weeks. No hooks. No gimmicks. No contracts.
The goal? Get Mamas out of the house to a place where they can receive support, love, understanding and safe workouts for their postpartum body. And to be honest, even if they don’t workout, at least we’re getting them out of the house with their new baby! Exercise is more commonly being prescribed to postpartum women to help fight against postpartum depression. If we can offer a safe place where women can go to get the support they need during those first few postpartum lonely and, let’s be honest, isolating and overwhelming months, you bet your sweet buns we’re going to do it!
We’ve extended the PPI window!
Previously our PPI was available to women who were between 8 – 16 weeks postpartum but we’ve extended our initiative to include women up to 24 weeks postpartum. Why? Well, a few reasons:
- Some bodies take longer to recover from pregnancy and labor/delivery.
- Postpartum depression is diagnosed at the highest rate between 3-6 months postpartum.
- Sometimes Mamas just need a little extra time to figure out Motherhood and all it entails to get baby out the door!
Please help us spread the word!
We’d love more people to know about our FREE classes for postpartum Mamas, so we’re hosting a Thunderclap campaign. We would be SO GRATEFUL for your support in getting the word out!
Please click the pink “BRING THE THUNDER” button below, then click the RED buttons on that page to offer support. How does this offer support? Easy! On May 13th a social post will be made on your FB or Twitter account on our behalf. We’re hoping to have at least 500 supporters, so that’ll be 500 people posting about this initiative at the same time. And THAT has power.
Thank you so much for your love, support, comments and words of encouragement. You Mamas are truly an inspiration and are the reason we keep pushing Hot Mama towards global domination. Mamas all over this world need us, of this I am certain. Your help in spreading the word is beyond appreciated. xo
