We had the good fortune of connecting with Chelsea Maier and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Chelsea, what’s the most important thing you’ve done for your children?
One of the most important things I have done as a parent, in terms of the impact on my children, was never giving up, even when faced with challenges and obstacles. Even when I’m not always motivated, I’ve never given up. Being motivated should not be the only time you press forward.

My kids, especially my oldest two, are now at an age where they pay attention and learn from my every move. Adolescent years are super important. There is nothing to prepare you nearly enough for the pre-teen and teenage years when your children begin to become young adults.

In this moment, every single thing I do, every single detail, matters. You HAVE to move with your kids in mind. You HAVE to make decisions with your kids in mind. It is no longer just your future; it is theirs as well.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Bawdy LLC was formed in August of 2020. Bawdy began with fitness wear and specific custom-made fitness equipment. In January of 2021, the brand branched out into having its own fitness app, which is capable of analyzing and creating fitness plans that will help clients reach and maximize their goals.

Hard work and dedication got me to where I am today. It was never easy. There are always challenges that come with being a single mom. Knowing that you have people you’re doing it for ignites a fire within you that never goes out. You have a WANT to be great! You have a NEED to be great! Just because you want something, doesn’t mean it’s going to come the first time around. You’ll fail more times than you succeed. That’s what creates success. The lessons you learn are endless. You take those lessons and learn from them.

I would like the world to know that my brand and my work come from how passionate I am when it comes to health and fitness and living an active lifestyle. Changing other people’s lives is an extremely rewarding gift. There is a certain fulfillment within teaching others and allowing myself to be able to create a healthy lifestyle for them. This lifestyle, this love for fitness, is embedded in me. My foundation was built upon everything I have done, from past to present, to ensure I am successful in what I do.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When friends are visiting, I am the type to go to brunch spots, or find a small local bar that has the BEST drinks around. However, I am also real big on cooking. Aside from fitness, I love to cook. A majority of the time, I tend to cook when my friends visit. I am a small town country girl who moved to a big city where the country life almost does not exist unless you go to the outskirts. Anything that makes me feel at home, such as anything pertaining to the outdoors, is where Id be.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout would most definitely have to be my kids. My kids are the driving force behind everything that I do. Aside from my kids, my support system is endless; From family, to friends, and of course, strangers.

I’d also shoutout my former powerlifting coaches and teammates from high-school, all the way to college and after. Powerlifting is where my passion within the fitness field began.
