MARCH: Sarah Moshman

Our talented Mom of the Month is Sarah Moshman! Sarah has been with Fit4Mom for 5 years. She is our favorite Strides 360 attendee and rarely misses a class. She is consistent, always encouraging and loves to bring her fantastic family with her to workout. She is a great role model for her family and friends radiating success in all aspects of life. We applaud you Sarah and think you are awesome!

What’s your full name? Introduce your Fam: I'm Sarah Moshman, my husband is Ryan (this year we celebrate 10 years married, 20 YEARS together), my daughter Bryce is 5 and my son Ellis is 2.

Favorite drink? I mostly drink water and coffee, but lately I've developed a real appreciation for bourbon! I'm making a documentary about women paving the way in whiskey and bourbon so I'm trying more bourbon cocktails. Yum!

Snack? I've always loved pretzels!

Where do you like to shop? I like Lululemon, Vuori, Express, Forever 21, Q, and Target of course.

Favorite place you’ve traveled to? The south island of New Zealand was absolutely stunning. I would go back any day.

Favorite Book? UNTAMED by Glennon Doyle

Hobby? I don't know if it's my hobby but I've gotten really into strength training in the last couple years alongside Fit4Mom workouts, and taking long walks as a sort of meditation.

Something unique about yourself? I process the world through storytelling. I direct documentaries and narrative films about strong, complex, flawed women and mothers. It is truly my greatest joy to help women see a piece of themselves on screen. I have always wanted to be a director and a filmmaker, and although it is very hard especially as a mom of 2 now, I am trying to hold on to my dream and keep on the path. I am endlessly fascinated by the human experience.

Favorite movie or show? Lately I've really enjoyed Fleishman is in Trouble on Hulu (a lot of great motherhood themes if you stick with it) but ALL TIME favorite show is Parks and Recreation. I love Leslie Knope with all of my heart.

Craziest thing you’ve ever done? I made a documentary about 4 women who rowed a boat across the entire Pacific Ocean called LOSING SIGHT OF SHORE. It was the greatest and craziest adventure of my life telling that story and it was on Netflix worldwide for 3 years. (I wasn't on the boat, but I got to meet them on land along the way and hang off of ships and boats filming them, it was insane.) You can watch it on iTunes or Amazon now!

Your idea of a perfect vacation? Some relaxation but mostly exploring a new place without a schedule, without kids (let's be honest it's so much more work when they're little!) sunshine, mountains, great sunsets, excellent conversations and amazing food.

How long have you been with fit4mom? Fave thing about Fit4Mom? I've been coming to Fit4Mom since, let's see, early 2018 when my daughter Bryce was 6 weeks old! I am grateful for the consistency and the community. I have met so many great moms through Fit4mom, gotten some great workouts in, and just felt more seen in my motherhood journey.

When is your birthday? October 6th! Libra love!

Do you speak more than one language? I wish, some Spanish but not very well.

Favorite color? Turquoise right now.

Most challenging part of this year for you? When the kids are sick and we don't have family close by and it feels like we have no one to call for help. But I try to remember "this too shall pass" and it does. I have been valuing my time alone when I get it more than ever, and trying not to feel guilty if I take some time for myself to do something nurturing during the week since weekends are so crazy and are almost completely in service of my kids. I'm always on a journey to find myself again and still show up as my version of a "good mom."

What are you most proud of about yourself while facing the challenges of this year? I am proud of myself that I just wrote and directed a narrative short film called A MOTHER IS BORN, which will be done in May ( look out for an invite to our Mother's Day screening in Noho!) but making the film was very healing. All I want to do is make something vulnerable and truthful and specific to our experiences as we become mothers. We go through SO MUCH to bring these humans into the world and our experiences are largely ignored or brushed under the rug of the newborn fog. I want to celebrate and honor how hard those first few months are as our identities are shifting, and I hope this film does just that. I'm proud that I pushed myself to make a deeply personal film and I can't wait to share it with all of you.

You can usually catch me at Strides 360 In Burbank on Saturdays!
