Mamavation Goes to Los Angeles: Fitcation #2

Fitcation 11 in Austin, Texas


Mamavation is a special community of moms who are working hard to make their families lives healthier. We take on unique challenges everyday. Most of us are not surrounded by people who understand social media or really “get” what we do online, so the friendships we create online are very unique. In fact, the friendships we create with each other are so strong that sometimes we wish we lived next door to each other so we could just hangout and encourage each other 24/7. So every year, a handful of the most active community leaders from Mamavation get together for team building and fun. This year, we’ve expanded the number we are allowing to attend because our sponsor has been so generous in offering us free lodging.
