- Clients of Mary's have had many successes with her classes. The bonding they also experienced with their children was beneficial since they could take them to a workout for the first time! – Julie Almeida, Examiner
- Mary is just wonderful. She truly cares about her clients and their well-being, and as a mom of two herself, she really gets what moms' challenges are. I'd strongly recommend My Fit Mommy. – Google Maps review from 9/12/10
My Fit Mommy
My Fit Mommy owner and director Mary Damato is passionate about giving moms a place to get fit while they spend quality time with their kids. A mother of three herself, she saw a need for a laid-back, mom-focused workout space, where moms could interact with other adults while still participating in an intense workout. Each outdoor, boot-camp-style class is led by a certified instructor and focuses on burning calories through circuit training and toning the body using small weights.
