The Shameless Mom Academy Episodes

Visit the The Shameless Mom Academy Website

Sara Dean launched the Shameless Mom Academy in her pursuit of being, well, more shameless. Sara is an award winning fitness professional, author, and speaker who has worked closely with moms in her Seattle-based gym since 2003. But, it took becoming a mom herself in 2012 for her to learn that – holy cow – this is hard work (and much wine is needed for survival.) Join Sara every Monday and Wednesday as she offers hilarious stories, inspiration, and powerful tools to help moms find their identity again after motherhood.
