 What is a No Excuse Mom Group?

A No Excuse Mom Group meets 1-3 times a week at a local park or indoor location.

How do I start a No Excuse Mom Group?

Starting a No Excuse Mom group is a great opportunity to meet new moms, get active and enjoy playtime with kids in your area. You can meet anywhere between 1-3 times per week at a local park, or a couple local parks. In the duration of your meet-up, mother’s typically workout for half an hour, then participate in playtime with the kids for half an hour.

Deciding to lead the program will take a lot of effort on your part in the beginning. It will require you to contact people, media outlets and print fliers. While it will be a challenging endeavor, it’s also very rewarding to bring together mothers and children towards a healthy activity.

How do I find a location and market the group:

If you are in an area where you can workout at the park, then choose a park that is closest to you. You can also request to use community centers, church rooms, large basements or your local gym.

The best way to market is to spread the word. You can notify people verbally, announce on your Facebook page and have people ‘share’ the meet up, post flyers on community bulletin boards and promote in your Newspaper’s calendar of events.

We will also put your group on our website where people can contact you and find your  meet up location/time.

Do I need a background in fitness? How do I know what exercises to perform?
No you don’t need a background in fitness (although it is helpful). You just need to be passionate about health and fitness and desire to connect with like-minded people. We will give you a database of park workouts to choose from! You will communicate closely with our administrator for any questions, advice or concerns.

Is this just for moms?

Absolutely not! We’ve had fathers, caretakers, grandparents, siblings and pregnant women join the group!
