OUR STORY.
 OUR MISSION.

Happy Womens

CFIT is co-owned and created by two sisters, Carly Mayo Deichman and Victoria Guiteras Mayo — we are dancers and fitness enthusiasts. Born and raised in Springfield, PA (Delco!), you’ll find the only difference between us is our hair color.

Dancers since the age of 3, and former performers living in New York, we found our love of fitness and CFIT was born.

We’ve lived, danced, and taught fitness classes in Manhattan, NYC, for years. Creating the CFIT community was all about looking for encouragement and accountability, and we found that and so much more.

CFIT is the driving force behind everything we do, and we’ve managed to bring together an incredible team of instructors who embody the passion and joy we need to keep CFIT the success it is.

Mallory discovered yoga when she was a student at West Chester University and received her 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification from Enso in March 2017.
