Mom of the Month: March 2020

Each month, we are celebrating a member of FIT4MOM Northwest Sacramento for her commitment to a healthy lifestyle and dedication to FIT4MOM.

This month, we are spotlighting a founding mom! Meet our Mom of the Month for March: Tori Cummins.

Tell us about who is in your family!

My husband Andrew, daughter Lydia (22 months) and baby due in August.

Where is your hometown?

Grass Valley, CA

What is your career?

Freelance journalist

How did you find FIT4MOM?

Through a trial class with Mom’s Club of Natomas

How long have you been a member of FIT4MOM Northwest Sacramento, and what has it done for you?

Since November 2018. It’s helped me gain confidence in my postpartum body, meet other new moms who are home during the day, get out of the house and feel so much stronger!

What is your favorite exercise?

Anything that feels like a good stretch

What is something that has surprised you about motherhood?

How hard things that seemed normal could be, like Lydia never took a bottle and I thought that was what babies always just did (haha!). Also how fiercely and wholly you can love a tiny human.

What are 3 of your favorite things?

Writing, traveling and holiday dinners with family

What is your proudest mommy moment so far?

She used “thank you” correctly and sweetly without prompting the other day and that pretty much melted my heart.

What advice would you give to a new mother?

Trust your gut, ask for help and be proud of yourself!

Ending thoughts?

Love this motherhood sisterhood! So thankful to be part of it.

We are so lucky to have Tori in our village. It wouldn't be the same without her!
