Navigating Fitness as a Mom 


When Tess Franklin, a national figure model and Oxygen Magazine cover star, shares her transformation from martial arts enthusiast to bodybuilding dynamo, you can’t help but feel the energy surge. Tess’s narrative is a beacon of determination, illuminating the path for women who seek to sculpt not only their bodies but their life’s passions amidst the whirlwind of motherhood and career ambitions.

Championing Empowerment Through Fitness

Tess’s story is particularly inspiring because it challenges the often one-dimensional view of motherhood. Society tends to impose certain expectations on mothers, especially when it comes to physical appearance and fitness. However, Tess stands as a testament to the fact that motherhood and fitness are not mutually exclusive. By sharing her experiences, Tess opens up a conversation about the importance of self-care, not just for personal fulfillment, but as a crucial aspect that enhances family life.

Balancing Act: Juggling Motherhood and Fitness

The concept of balance is central to Tess’s narrative. For many mothers, finding time for exercise can seem impossible amidst the demands of parenting and work. But Tess demonstrates that with adaptability and a strong support network, it is possible to maintain a fitness routine. Her approach emphasizes the importance of joy in exercise and community support, showcasing that these are vital for a fulfilling balance between motherhood and personal goals.

Redefining Motherhood: The #RedefineMomBod Movement

In a particularly enlightening section of the episode, Tess discusses the #redefinedmombod movement. This movement challenges the traditional perceptions of postpartum bodies, aiming to empower mothers to take control of their fitness journey. Tess’s involvement in this movement underscores her belief that strength and beauty are deeply personal and redefinable states of being.

Navigating Societal Pressures and Body Image Expectations

The episode also touches on the societal pressures women face regarding body image. Tess candidly shares her experiences and those of her clients, stressing the importance of individual choice and the need to navigate personal health and fitness within a culture that often promotes a narrow definition of beauty. It’s a powerful reminder that well-intentioned fitness messaging needs to be mindful not to perpetuate these pressures.

Practical Insights for Busy Moms

As the episode concludes, Tess offers advice for busy mothers looking to incorporate fitness into their lives. Her insights are practical and encouraging, suggesting that a clear, exciting personal goal can be a powerful motivator. Tess acknowledges the diversity of mothers’ circumstances and advocates for creating a fitness plan tailored to individual needs.

Conclusion: Harnessing the Superpower of Motherhood

Overall, the podcast episode serves as a rally cry for women to embrace their power and prioritize their well-being. Tess’s story isn’t just about fitness; it’s about harnessing the inherent superpower of motherhood and letting it shine in every aspect of life.

Through her personal evolution and the empowerment of other mothers, Tess Franklin continues to redefine what it means to be a fit, strong, and balanced mother in today’s world. Her story is a beacon for anyone seeking to harmonize the various facets of life without losing sight of personal aspirations.
