Fitness Centers + Gyms in the Madison Area

As moms there are SO many things that take up our time, energy and attention. We pour ourselves out every day into the people and pursuits we love, but although these are all good things, we often forget about taking care of ourselves. Barriers to fitness including pregnancy, childcare, money, time, location and more. It is our hope that this guide would help you find the perfect match for your lifestyle, budget and fitness level so you can set those barriers aside and invest in YOU this year.

A HUGE thank you to our Sponsors for making this guide possible!

Madison is such a cool city. We love it around here. We live here too and our vision is to create a platform where real parents share real stories and we can all learn from one another.

  1. I go to Burn Boot Camp and it was the best decision I ever made 3 years ago. All I need to do is show up and the workout is planned for me. Childcare is a huge plus as well. Flexible camp time options and multiple locations throughout Madison make it an easy choice.
