Hi There! I’m Lauren, Welcome to Fit Mommy In Heels.
Fit Mommy In Heels was created to inspire other women to be their very best selves. Whether that’s helping them get into the best shape of their life, reclaim their love of fitness post-baby, or feel good about the outfits they wear.
A little bit about me:
I’ve been a personal trainer and group fitness instructor for several years. More recently, I’ve become a fitness competitor, competing in the NPC 2 years in a row. Fitness has always been a passion of mine and I absolutely love helping others achieve their fitness goals. But…. I also have a deep love of fashion!
Putting together outfits that are affordable and easily attainable is something I enjoy. On this blog, you can expect to find outfit inspiration, current trends, and some personal style content.
How long have you been a personal trainer?
I’ve been a group fitness instructor and personal trainer since 2010 but I’ve been in the fitness world my whole life. I grew up going to the gyms my parents owned/worked at and had my own gym membership since I was old enough to drive myself there!
How long have you been blogging?
I started this blog in December of 2016. I wasn’t exactly sure what my goal was but I knew I wanted to give it a go. I’ve learned SO MUCH in the last year and have just taken my blog where life has taken me – through fitness competitions, changes in personal style, parenting, pregnancy, etc.
Who takes your photos?
Right now my husband takes them (sometimes I take them myself!) because timing is my main issue. With 3 young children we often just take photos in batches when the time is right!
How can I shop your outfits?
I link all my outfits through RewardStyle so if you’re signed up with LTK you can shop them all there OR you can instantly shop them via the drop down tab “SHOP MY LIKETOKNOW.IT” under the FASHION tab from my blogs main page.
Do you offer custom workouts?
Yes! Custom workouts are available for all fitness levels. If you’re interested in a custom workout plan shoot me an email at [email protected] so we can chat about your needs.
What advice do you have for new bloggers?
There is a lot that goes into creating and maintaining a good blog. However, if I had to give my most important pieces of advice it would be this:
- Define your target audience. Is it stay at home moms? Women looking to get into shape? You need to have a clear idea of what your readers want from you so that you know what content you need to provide.
- Don’t half-ass it. Take the time to get quality photos, edit them to fit your aesthetic and provide VALUE to your readers so they come back for more.
- Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. While it’s important to grow your following on instagram it’s not good to spend ALL your time on that one platform. Learn about all the benefits other platforms provide. One of my favorites? Pinterest. There is a lot to learn and growth doesn’t happen overnight. But set aside some time to learn and I promise you’ll make progress!
