Stroller Strides!

Calling all the mamas out there!

Let’s just be real, nothing is really the same after having kids. Sleep (miss it), going out (what’s that?), but the thing I want to talk about right now is exercise. After I had my first I found it challenging finding time to work out. I have always been a fan of getting in a good work out so finding a way that worked with my new life was really important for me.

Once I was cleared at eight weeks by my doctor I started running. I would go after I had put Sam to bed and run a few miles before I would come back to unwind for the night. While it was important for me to make the time for exercise I found it lonely and mentally exhausting to spend most of my relaxation time out running.

One night I decided I was going to look for a mommy and me work out class so that I could exercise, socialize, and get my own time to unwind after Sam was asleep. The first thing that popped up for me was a life changer.

Stroller Strides.

My new beast of a stroller.

Stroller Strides is one of the many awesome programs run by FIT4MOM, a company that stands for strength in motherhood. Stroller Strides is a sixty minute total body work out designed for moms with stroller age kiddos. You can get in a great work out, engage with other moms (talking to any grown up can be a big deal as a new mama), and your kids can have fun too!

I was scared to join at first because I didn’t know anyone and I didn’t want to be the odd man out, but I was trying to be a better stronger version of myself for my little Sam. So I signed up for the free trial class and went the next day. The women there were so nice and I felt so welcomed into this amazing group.

Flash forward to now and I am now an instructor with FIT4MOM, and I teach a Stroller Strides class a couple days a week! I get to go provide that same awesome environment and attitude that helped me when I needed it.

Plus, you aren’t only getting a work out in but you are showing your kids how fun it can be to exercise! So many wins with a group of strong mamas! If you feel like giving it a try yourself find a Stroller Strides groups in your area and go for your free trial class!
