What is Skinny Mom?
Skinny Mom is a community of real moms who talk healthy motherhood. We connect, share and inspire, providing the skinny on fitness, food, fashion and family. This dynamic sisterhood of moms enhances lives by engaging with the Skinny Mom brand.

Skinny Mom also includes stories of real moms who are living healthy and contributions from top-rated fitness, nutrition, fashion, and lifestyle experts who give you the “skinny” on everything from revamping your sex life to innovative workouts that you can do with your kids!

Meet the Founder of Skinny Mom
Brooke Griffin, Creator of Skinny Mom
The brains (and beauty) behind Skinny Mom, is fitness expert, Brooke Griffin. While Brooke is a Fitness Universe Champion, personal trainer, and former NFL cheerleader who has appeared and contributed to publications such as Oxygen Women’s Fitness Magazine, Natural Muscle Magazine, Redbook Magazine, and GQ, among others – first and foremost, Brooke is a mom.
Brooke knows what it is like to struggle to find time to make healthy living a priority after becoming a mother. In her quest to lose the 68 pounds of baby weight she gained after having her son, Brooke implemented a fitness and nutrition plan based on her knowledge as a former fitness competitor. She customized her plan based on the realistic need for a simplified and easy-to-follow strategy that is necessary for any busy mom. After losing the weight and returning to her pre-pregnancy physique within five months, Brooke realized there was a need for a community of other mothers facing the same struggle. With that, Skinny Mom was born in March 2011.
The explosive growth since Skinny Mom’s inception quickly proved Brooke right in her suspicion that other mothers were looking for a place to find like-minded modern mothers looking for strategies to incorporate healthy living into their busy lifestyles.
