Empowerer of women.



You know that exercise and eating well is important to a healthy and well-rounded lifestyle, but with your busy mom life, you may feel you’d be lucky to find the time to drive to the gym, let alone actually work out.   

You understand the concept of strength training, but the minute you start to think about shifting your busy schedule around to lift some weights, mommy guilt sets in and you just can’t bring yourself to take time away from your kids to get that workout done.

You know you should eat better, but you feel overwhelmed with where to start.

You want to get in shape and feel empowered, but you wonder if you can even do this with your busy life.

Rest assured busy mom, you are not alone!  

My name is Valerie Solomon, and I am a fitness coach and the creator of Busy Mom Gets Fit. I specialize in helping women just like you find a lifestyle of fitness without taking them away from their families. As a Certified Personal Trainer, UFE Figure PRO, Editor of GORGO Magazine, and a busy mom of 4 boys, I completely understand the busy mom lifestyle. The thing is, I also know how important fitness is to your overall wellbeing. If you haven’t found the motivation, aren’t sure where to begin, or maybe you just need a solid plan to follow; I am here to help you!  

My love of fitness began as a teenager when I was a competitive swimmer. I loved the feeling of being strong and athletic. After having four kids, I longed to get back to that feeling. Starting out with cardio, I was disappointed that my time on the treadmill wasn’t bringing me the results I craved, so I went back to my first fitness love: strength training.

Fast forward to 2011; I became a certified personal trainer and began competing as a figure competitor. I also started Busy Mom Gets Fit on social media, because fitness was my passion and I wanted to share it with other busy moms. What started out as a passion project grew quickly, as I connected with other busy women and helped them see that they can totally do this!

My goal with each and every woman I work with, whether through one-on-one coaching, or through my Busy Mom Gets Fit  Workout & Diet Guides, is to empower her to live a fit lifestyle without feeling like it’s a sacrifice of time with her family. It is such an honor for me to teach women to strength train and to take charge of their own health and fitness while modeling that behavior for their families.

When you work with me, you are getting a fitness trainer who understands the unique demands of the busy mom lifestyle. Nothing means more to me than finding out I have changed a woman’s life by bringing fitness and wellness into her weekly routine. While many of the women I work with come to my programs feeling a little overwhelmed at the idea of starting a fitness routine, they soon realize that it can (and should) be done! They start to feel great, and own the title of “fit mom.” The reality is, you don’t have to slave away for hours at the gym in order to achieve a fit, strong, and healthy body. You can achieve amazing results in a timely manner in a gym, or right in the comfort of your own home, and on your own time.
