My name is Janna Bona and I am a fitness video star. Okay, maybe that’s stretching the truth just a little bit. I am, however, a wife, a mommy, a dental hygienist, and I do have a role in the Fé Fit 90-Day Fitness Experience, which led to an ambassadorship with Fé Fit. Just a few short years ago I never would have thought I could ever say something like that. Health and fitness did not play much of a role in my life prior to having a child. Now, it’s one of the most important parts of my life. Prioritizing my health has helped me find myself as an individual, and has formulated how my husband and I raise our three-year-old son, Liam.
I married my husband, Chris Bona in 2003 and we moved to Round Rock, Texas from central Illinois in 2006. We have been very fortunate in finding a community of like-minded friends to spend our time with. We both found a great home at CrossFit Round Rock. CrossFit is one of my favorite hobbies and helped me realize how fun working out can be—it’s like having PE as an adult. I am proud to say that I can do things in my 30s that I couldn’t do in high school!
Being a mother is the most important role we may ever play, but I think a lot of women lose themselves to motherhood and who can blame them? Unless a very conscious effort is made (especially in the beginning), it is hard to carve out the time to get a good sweat in. Many women even feel guilty about taking this “me” time. I am here to set your conscience free! Do it for yourself. Do it for your kids. But really, do it for yourself. You will thank me later!
I have met so many inspiring moms through Fé Fit and love how other women are so eager to empower their peers. Having a community to support you is a fundamental part of any success story, and I hope Fé Fit can be that community for you.
