Welcome to Kick It Like Mom: Creating a community for the real sports moms…The ones who play!
Being a mom is HARD. Being one who is active in sports and fitness takes tremendous dedication and motivation. Most of us are just real moms. Real moms who are busy, constantly juggling the demands of family, work, other activities and don’t have time or energy for intense workouts 7 days a week. It can be a struggle to prioritize our desire to be healthy and keep our own identity as an athlete.
With that said though, we are in a unique and special position to be a positive role model for our kids. By living the healthy, happy, confident lifestyle that comes with being physically active we are modeling how to live healthy and the values of being a team player, how to set goals, persevere to achieve them and gain confidence, all on a playing field of gender equality.
So whether you are a soccer mom, a runner mom, a yoga mom or even a mom looking to get back into fitness, this blog is for you! I hope Kick It Like Mom will inspire & motivate you to keep moving or to get started and make it easy for you with weekly posts, photos, profiles of real sports moms, interviews, reviews of mom friendly products, classes and services and much more.
Our mission is this: To create a community of moms who are active in sports & fitness, To connect and share with each other, To inspire, encourage and motivate each other to keep playing…or to start, To celebrate the strength & perseverance it takes to be a sport playing mom and the example we set for our children, To find the humor in trying to balance it all… because we could ALL use more laughs!
