Melanie Glaim-Osmack began Fit 4 Two in 2003 out of a passion to help women enjoy active pregnancies. With the birth of her son came the addition of postnatal fitness classes. It wasn't long before Melanie realized that her classes were more than physical fitness. They provided a safe place for women to ask questions, share their thoughts and support one another.
In 2006, Melanie created the opportunity for women in other communities to attend Fit 4 Two classes by franchising. While her business was growing so was her family. In late 2006, Baby Olivia joined Big Brother Caden.
Melanie continues to break the myths around pregnancy and exercise by training certified fitness instructors and personal trainers to become pre and postnatal fitness specialists, writing for various publications and speaking at Fitness Conferences.

Makeup Class Policy: We understand that you might miss a class or two. If you are registered for a regularly priced program, you can make up a maximum of 2 missed classes (space permitting) per session. These classes must be made up in the downtown/false creek territory within 30 days of the missed class. You will need to get a signed makeup class card from your instructor. No makeup class card = no makeup class.

"It's been ten years since I was pregnant and took a Fit 4 Two class and ten years of friendship with some of the women in my class. Ten years of annual camping trips, girls' nights, commiserating about sleeping through the night, toilet training, and now tween attitude!"
