Melissa Sabol - November 2022

Congratulations to Melissa, our Motivating Mom of the Month! Melissa has been a member of FIT4MOM Naperville for just about a year and we are so glad she found us! She has such a kind, easy-going personality that makes her easy to chat with. Melissa is one of those moms who, the more you get to know her, the more you like her. Not only is she super hard-working during class, but she’s caring, funny and thoughtful. The instructor team loves having her in class and her fellow mama friends do too! Melissa joined our Run Club+ in the Spring and, holy cow, does she have an amazing pace! She is such an active member of RC+, participating in the group runs as well as organizing trips for a coffee or beer after. If you get the opportunity to chat with her during the run your miles will fly by!

Whether it’s at stroller class, with her two very sweet kiddos alongside, or solo at Cardio Ignite or Run Club+, you will find Melissa giving it her all. She is a dedicated wife, mom, teacher, and friend.

Congratulations Melissa! We are so happy you are a part of our FIT4MOM Village. You can read more about Melissa here ~

Introduce us to your family!

I’m Melissa, a mom of two. Kelsey is 4 and is a lover of dinosaurs and all spooky things (year round), a big-time crafter, and a girl who always wants to make friends with the kids she sees. Jax is 1 and has the best belly laughs, has nonstop energy, and is fearless at the playground. My husband Jeff is a math teacher, and we work in the same high school, where I teach biology. We live in Winfield.

How long have you been a member of F4M Naperville? What made you come to your first class and which classes have you participated in?

I joined F4M Naperville about a year ago. I was inspired to come to class when I saw all the social media posts featuring moms and kids having a blast, sometimes even while working out. I’ve never been disciplined to work out on my own, and I desperately needed accountability. I am so thankful the calendars are packed with class offerings whether I’m in summer-mode or teacher-mode. I love Run Club, Stroller Strides, 360, and Ignite. I see huge benefits to both the mom only classes and the stroller classes… hence I go to everything I can!

What are your favorite things to do with your family?

As a family we love going to playgrounds and libraries to explore.

What would you say to a mom considering joining our village?

To a mom considering joining, I would say: join! This village is very welcoming and at my first class I chatted with a few moms and never felt out of place. There’s so many social and mental benefits… and every single class is a physical challenge. Oof! The instructors are top notch!

What has been your biggest gain since joining FIT4MOM Naperville?

My biggest gain has been motivation! I want to go to classes each week because I know I’ll see familiar faces and get an amazing workout. If she’s a mom doing it all and still finds time to work out and have fun…then I can get myself out the door too!
