we're Maddie + Chan
Lovers of good coffee, postpartum trainers, and best friends
We met over 9 years ago, when we were married with no kids. Back then carving out hours of time to workout was a breeze.
And then we had babies :)
As they got older working out began to look A LOT different than what we were used to and that's when Fitness Interrupted was born.
We have made it our mission to help mamas get stronger and move better in their bodies no matter what season of motherhood.
How Fitness Interrupted began
After having babies, we noticed how little resources were offered for the mama's wanting to get back to doing the movement they loved.
So with countless workout sessions together ( kids running circles around us) and intentional conversations with other mama's (searching for the same resources), we came together to co-create functional strength training programs for mama's in every stage of their postpartum fitness journey.
We have poured our hearts into creating programs specifically for mamas who want to get back to prioritizing themselves, feel stronger and confident in what their bodies are capable of doing, find freedom in working out with their kids around, move better in their own bodies.
