I joined Stroller Strides when my daughter was six weeks old and she is now two. Having done everything from boot camps to marathon running prior to having my daughter, I was eager to find a group of like minded moms. I found just that with Fit4Mom. Everyone I have met has been sweet, kind, and supportive on many levels. I enjoy the variety of teachers, teaching styles and workouts. Everyday is different and challenging, allowing each participant to work at the intensity level they need that day whether they be 6 weeks postpartum working on just hours of sleep all the way up to the almost ready to deliver mom. In addition to the great workout I love the fact that my daughter gets to see positive role models and that she gets to play with the other kids after class.more
When I first heard about Stroller Strides from a former coworker, I had no idea what a huge part of my life it would become for me as a first-time mom and recent transplant to Orange County. Not only is it a fantastic and fun way to get and stay in shape, but it also provides an invaluable support network of other mamas. Plus, my kiddo gets to play outdoors with other kids and make friends. I can't think of a better or healthier way for us to spend our weekday mornings together. Thank you Stroller Strides!more
I moved to California four years ago 3 months pregnant with my first son. It was so hard to leave the only home and family I had even known to literally pack up and move to the opposite side of the country. I had a new "home", a new baby on the way, a new job, and a new life. As fun as California is, it still didn't feel like home. After our son was born, my husband came home and asked me "Have you even left the house today", as many new moms answer, I said "no". Then he asked the dreaded question " Have you even showered today?". Again, my answer was a sad "No". He said, "That's it, let's get ready, I'm taking you out to dinner and we're finding you a mommy and me group". I was hesitant to try to venture out and make new friends, but I knew I JUST HAD TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! That's where Keira came in. I googled mommy and me classes, and Fit4Mom/Stroller Strides came up, so I picked up the phone and called. Keira INSTANTLY made me feel like I had a friend and I wasn't the only new mom that was having the same isolated feeling I was having. Her classes were amazing and she...more
I have loved every aspect of Stroller Strides from the beginning! I started when my son was 7 weeks old (he is now 2 and has a 6 month old sister). I had a hard time transitioning from working full time to being home with him and Stroller Strides provided me with a place to be each morning if I wanted it. The workouts are challenging (but can easily be modified for whatever your fitness goals are), varied, and fun. Through Stroller Strides, I am now the most fit I have ever been! Along with the workouts, we have a wonderful support system of moms who share the highs and lows of parenting with one another. I think every time I come to class, I have a question or a kid story I need to share for fellow mom advice! Then there is after the workout - play time for the kids. My son loves his Stroller Strides buddies and I have loved watching him play, share, and laugh at the park. I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing village of moms!
