BondFitNYC was created during my Marketing Class in the Graduate Program at St. Joseph's College, Brooklyn, NY. I was inspired by others in the class who shared their dreams and how they were going to make them a reality. That's when I decided I was going to put my fears to the side and live my dream too. I love to exercise and I love to spend time with my daughter. I realized that I was already doing this at home everyday, so I decided to start my Mommy & Me business, offering classes to parents with a little one between the ages of 0-7 years old.
I started to make a social media presence by uploading videos and pictures of my daughter and I working out at home.
I started a gofundme page for my business and asked for donations from family and friends. In just 3 weeks, I raised $1,670 towards my business. In three months, I raised $2,155. Becasue of the financial support I received from friends and family, I was able to start the trademark process for my brand through legalzoom.com. The trademark will grant me the right to use my brand anywhere in the United States. I continued to raise more money and I was able to successfully register for a Personal Fitness Training Course at Wagner College in Staten Island, NY. I am proud to have completed this course and my internship program. I successfully completed my Personal Fitness Training Certificate in March 2017.
I am so happy to have the opportunity to teach mommy/daddy & me classes. I am now a Part-time Fitness Coach at UFC Gym in Park Slope, Brooklyn. I teach my Mommy/Daddy & Me classes once a month and an Adult Bootcamp Class every Sunday morning. I will continue to teach classes in small fitness centers, gyms, and day care centers until I am able to familiarize my brand with the world. My ultimate goal is to build a relationship with my customers so that they become loyal to my business. My classes are fun and engaging. They provide a great opportunity for parents to bond with their little one and stay fit. Whether it means getting out of the house, getting a great workout, or spending quality time, this mommy/daddy & me class is lots of fun for everyone. As the CEO of my company, I want to be the prime example, because I know that perception is everything. I want my customers to say ‘Wow, she looks great and her little one enjoys it too. I want to try it out’. The important thing I want my customers to realize—if they don’t already—is that: “Just because you become a parent, doesn’t mean you lose who you are!”
