Super Mom Lindsay Gilvin is the mother to Dawson (6), Brooks (3) and Beau (2), wife to Casey, who is the director of fitness at the University of Kentucky, and owner of FIT4MOM Lexington, KY.
While Lindsay doesn’t consider herself a “Super Mom,” she is inspired by the unbelievable moms she has met through FIT4MOM, the country’s largest fitness program for moms, which offers pre and post-natal fitness classes for every stage of motherhood.
“I started exercising with Fit4Mom’s Stroller Strides® when my daughter, Dawson, was 4-months-old and I was immediately hooked. I found a community that supported motherhood and made staying healthy a priority,” Lindsay says.
When the Gilvins moved to Lexington, Lindsay took her passion for motherhood and leading a healthy, active lifestyle to build the Fit4Mom community in central Kentucky. The mission of Fit4Mom is to help moms achieve their ultimate potential, both physically and emotionally. Lindsay says that as a franchise owner for Fit4Mom that she strives to encourage other moms, including herself, to remember that you simply can’t “do all the things.”
“It is so important to ask for help (why is that a such a tough thing to do when you become a mom?) and to make your health and well being a priority,” she says. “
My biggest advice to other moms is to surround yourself with those that are in the thick of it with you, ones that can build you up and support you through this crazy journey of motherhood.”
As a mom of three young kids, a business owner and a wife, Lindsay says that there are days that she doesn’t have the time to get past the first item on her never ending to-do list.
“I sometimes, okay, most of the time, go to bed with laundry that needs to be folded and dirty dishes in the sink. And sometimes, my husband and I feel like we are just roommates tag-teaming it with these little rascals,” she says. “There are days that I missed an opportunity to be fully present with the kids to get work done. There are also days that I get the house clean, cook all the meals, have the opportunity to go on an adventure with my kids, spend time with my husband, get a workout in and even get the chance to shower. However, I always do my best to wake up, put that cape on and get to it.”
Like many moms, Lindsay admits that finding balance is one of the biggest challenges that comes with motherhood. On days that the to-do list is getting longer rather than shorter, Lindsay says she will remind herself that being present is more important.
“I am not sure I ever have a true balance between all of my responsibilities, but my goal is to be present in the moments that matter most. I try to recognize my priorities and adjust as needed,” she says. “Each day is different and brings it’s own joy and challenges, but the most rewarding part of being a mom is actually being a mom. Dawson, Brooks and Beau are incredible kiddos—they remind me every single day how blessed I am to be their mom.”
