KNOTEWORTHY: Elis Mimmo, Owner/Instructor, Fit4Mom North Shore

Elis Mimmo is a mother of three (Emma 11, Ava 6, Dante 2) and the proud franchise owner of Fit4Mom North Shore. Born and raised in Brazil Elis came to the USA in December of 2003 and had her first daughter Emma in 2007. Soon after baby girl Emma was born, new mom Elis was looking for a mothers group in the North Shore area, and that was when she discovered Fit4Mom. After falling in love with the program and discovering her passion for fitness there was a desire to influence, support and impact other moms in the area. Her favorite part about Fit4Mom classes is seeing moms being their kid's role model in class every day, showing our little ones that exercise can be fun and will definitely make you happy and healthy. 

We talked to Elis about where she finds inspiration to stay motivated, and this is what she shared... 

What is your mission statement and overall goal for your business?

I want to empower moms to live healthy and happy lives and reach out to new moms across North Shore. 

Where do you find inspiration to stay motivated?
My family, especially my kids. They are definitely my reason to stay on my toes and focus on my goals.

How do you define success?
Success is waking up every day doing what makes you happy, it is helping others to live a healthier and happier life and most of all to inspire the ones who don't believe on their own power.  

What do you wish you knew before you started your business?
Delegate more, stay true to your values and master time management.
