A mere six months ago, Maria Kang — dubbed "hot Facebook mom"— was just another viral flash in the pan. But now, love her or hate her, there’s no denying one thing: The fitness fanatic is a force to be reckoned with, according to Yahoo Shine.



In just a few months, she’s formed the “No Excuse Moms Movement,” comprising more than 700 local groups of mothers, worldwide, who gather for regular, free workouts in parks and other public spaces.

Kang first kickboxed her way into everyone’s consciousness in late 2013 with the question heard ’round the Internet: “What’s Your Excuse?” She became an instant viral sensation, though much of the attention was negative, with women accusing her of fat shaming — particularly during a heated online kerfuffle between Kang and plus-size activists, Yahoo Shine reports.
