Tatum's desire to create Total Mommy Fitness began when she worked as a trainer for popular gyms. She repeatedly observed that most of the women stopped exercising once they got pregnant. With this information in hand, Tatum decided to deepen her expertise by studying pregnancy exercise. The latest research surprisingly disproved everything she had previously heard; not only can women stay physically active during pregnancy, but the benefits of doing so seemed endless. The excitement of this new information spurred her desire to share what she had learned with expecting mothers, to help them to continue their personal fitness throughout their pregnancy, and after.
Tatum points out, when a woman is preparing for a marathon or sports event, she puts time into preparing her body with adequate training and proper nutrition. Pregnancy and childbirth are the most physically demanding things that many women will ever do in their life. The healthier a woman can get before her pregnancy, the more fit she can remain during, and the faster she will bounce back after. Women thinking about becoming pregnant should approach pregnancy with a similar mindset of an athlete preparing for a competition.
The driving force behind Tatum's passion for health and fitness stems from her lifelong fascination with the human body, its capabilities and resilience. Tatum has been testing her own body's limits and abilities from an early age, spanning from leisurely outdoor activities, to extreme sports, triathlons, and military training. This interest has led her to be one of the top fitness specialists in the US. Tatum has been featured in several publications including Fit Pregnancy magazine, and was listed as one of the fittest people in Austin by Austin Fit magazine.
Originally from Scottsdale, AZ, Tatum's career in fitness began when she joined the Army at the age of 17. While serving for eight years, she consistently received the highest honors in physical fitness, eventually working her way up to a Drill Sergeant to lead other soldiers through Basic Training. Tatum became certified in personal training as well as in prenatal and postnatal fitness by the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Tatum studied Kinesiology and Communication at Texas Christian University receiving a Bachelor of Science degree, and is currently pursuing an MBA.
When Tatum is not helping moms and families increase their personal fitness, you can find her somewhere outside. She loves to mountain bike, hike, run, or kayak, often with her dogs alongside. Tatum is also actively involved with the Mayor's Fitness Council in Austin.
