Dan Daru introduces us to the No Excuse Mom Group.
The No Excuse Mom Group is a premier project funded under the 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Fitness Without Borders. NEM is a group of moms focused on growing healthily, connecting our community, leading our youth and supporting each other. We have free workout locations throughout the world, which you can find here.
Our History: The No Excuse Mom movement was founded by Maria Kang. When she created her 2013 No Excuse Program, long-time fitness enthusiast, new mother (they gave birth on the same day) and friend, Lori-Anne Hare requested to start a private, online support group called the 2013NoExcuseMomChallenge. Maria agreed and the group grew to thousands of members in a few months. Together they witnessed the group connect deeply on success stories, recipe tips, exercise advice, budgeting ideas, venting sessions and holiday hiccups. It didn’t take long to see the unique energy that flowed from the group’s online presence. The No Excuse Mom online group page was co-founded by Lori Hare and is run by dedicated volunteer administrators. In 2014, Maria began efforts to establish local NEM workout groups ran by local leaders and directed by regional managers.
We are moms, just like you. We have life, stress, work, kids, responsibilities and obligations. We struggle making time for workouts, we splurge on cookie dough and enjoy (and often need) a glass of wine. That’s life. And that’s completely okay. Balance is one of the keys to success.
Our goal is to encourage health, friendship and community. We believe strongly that health starts at home and begins with parents as a child’s first role model. Most of all, we believe in the importance of prioritizing your personal health. Despite the stress, fatigue and chaos in a mom’s day – we believe that you should make NO EXCUSES for not prioritizing your health.
We will provide you with knowledge, tools and inspiration to find what healthy means for you and your family. We are the guide on this journey. You will get workouts, healthy eating information, plus a healthy dose of motivation from our website. We will help you connect with other moms and know that you are not alone in your struggles.
We are all in this together.
Join us in the No Excuse Mom movement that is sweeping the world!
