Lorna Brown

Owner, Lead Teacher, Mobile Program Director

My Gym Santa Rosa was opened in 2004 by Lorna Brown, a Sonoma County mom. "When I became a mom, I was anxious to find a fun facility to take my daughter to. Unfortunately I couldn't find anything in Sonoma County that offered fitness based classes for infants. Through research I discovered My Gym and soon decided to open my own franchise. My Gym is the perfect combination of early childhood fitness and child development programs. I'm so happy to be able to provide this amazing program for the children in our community. Through early exposure to fitness, My Gym helps children build healthy habits. I hope that you will bring your children to My Gym and let them grow up with us" Before opening My Gym, Lorna worked as a small business consultant and taught Scottish Highland Dancing. Besides operating My Gym Santa Rosa, she works for the My Gym Enterprises Marketing Department and previously served on the Franchise Advisory Board. She has been recognized as one of the 40 Under Forty Young Business Leaders in Sonoma County. She keeps busy with her now 9 & 11 year old children, country property and runs a residential construction company with her husband Tim.
