Motherhood can be hard and there is no reason any of us should trudge through the hard stuff alone!
I recently attended a Stroller Strides class and left feeling more connected, less alone on my motherhood journey, proud for doing something for my mental and physical health, happy that my kids had fun, and happy that I got to interact with them in a brand new way. I’ll be honest; I was worried my two children wouldn’t want to be in a stroller for an hour while I basically did my own thing, but I was pleasantly surprised! Interwoven throughout the class were different opportunities for me to connect with both of my kids. On our ride home they both said they had fun and wanted to go back! An added bonus about FIT4MOM is that you are surrounded by other moms with young kids in strollers. They get it. They understand the sleepless nights, the whining babies, the struggles navigating raising babies in the world today — all of it.
FIT4MOM holds more than just fitness classes, they also do a monthly Moms’ Night Out, Book Club meeting, and they host weekly playdates. FIT4MOM is about more than just getting a workout in — it’s about creating a mom community. When you attend a FIT4MOM class you open a door with endless possibilities for yourself and for your children! So many moms are in the same stage of life right here in town and FIT4MOM brings us together.
