As we continue celebrating moms all week (and every day!), we asked members of Team Zensah to share how their moms have inspired them.
Suzanne, our Marketing Director, talks about how her mom has shared the spirit of adventure with her and ingrained it in her lifestyle. To read our other inspiring mom stores check out what Alberto and Heidi had to say!
One of my strongest memories growing up is going on a Saturday long bike ride with my family. We would wake up early to go on what felt like a 100-mile journey (in reality more like 6-10 miles) around South Florida – taking the back roads, picking exotic fruit, and jumping in the ocean. My mom was always at the front of the pack, leading the adventure with full-fledged excitement.
Over the years I have developed a passion for health, fitness and adventures - that is all because of my mom. She is an amazing cook and has always kept a house filled with the freshest fruit and veggies, teaching me the importance of taking care of my body through food.
My mom is always moving. Since the day I can remember she is either walking, running, cycling, at the gym, in the garden…it doesn’t matter what it, is she just goes! She is the reason I ran my first half marathon and first full marathon. And after seeing this all my life, she has inspired me to make movement a part of my lifestyle.

But most importantly, my mom is the reason I live adventurously. She has shown me to be confident in every decision I take, to be open-minded, and to explore everything the world has to offer. I definitely agree with Zensah in that we should celebrate Mother’s Day every day, because they help us take on every adventure with positivity and excitement!
