If you haven’t heard of A Mom’s Village. you’ll definitely want to read this post! Located in West Peabody, in the Big Y shopping plaza, A Mom’s Village is a fitness studio, children’s enrichment center, childcare option, and support system for moms, all rolled into one. The owners, Cindy and Stephanie have dubbed it a Mommy Clubhouse and that truly feels like the best way to describe this place.

Normally I am a member of the YMCA and sometimes take yoga classes at Yoga Sakti in Salem. I would not consider myself to be in great shape, having hung on to some stubborn baby weight (3 years later…yikes!) but I do try. So when Cindy generously gifted me a momHUSTLE membership for the month of August, I was excited to try out their facilities!

Their momHUSTLE membership is a full service membership that includes unlimited fitness classes (bootcamp, barre, yoga, cardio+beats, and more), 2 hours of childcare per day, access to mommyTIME, access to drop and go childcare, discounts on child enrichment classes and more.

The momHUSTLE membership is not inexpensive, but after experiencing it for myself I can honestly say that it’s a good value—in addition to fitness classes, you’re also getting some time for yourself and really great childcare! My son has trouble with separation anxiety and A Mom’s Village is the only activity/school we’ve ever gone too, where he knows he will have to separate from me and still runs in with a smile on his face.

In addition to the momHUSTLE membership they also offer Off-Peak fitness memberships, non-fitness based memberships, Fourth Trimester Memberships for moms of newborns, and (coming soon) memberships for women who don’t need childcare.

So what is mommyTIME? This is one of the ways A Mom’s Village is different from your regular fitness studio. mommyTIME is available only to members and it‘s essentially at hour each day of “me time”. To use this I would book one hour of childcare for my son while I took a fitness class (cardio+beats was my favorite!) and then a second, consecutive hour of childcare for mommyTIME. Then I could take a shower in peace, sit in the Mommy Lounge and drink coffee, take a nap, grocery shop alone at Big Y, get a manicure at Nails & Co, run on the Rail Trail, etc.

In addition to the memberships, they also offer Enrichment Programs for kids, mommy and me classes and PlaySchool for toddlers. My son attended a Mixed Ages Music Class for several weeks in the spring, which we loved because the teacher had a fantastic voice and a live piano accompanist!
