My name is Krystal and I have been apart of Fit4Mom, previously Stroller Strides, since my now almost seven year old son was six weeks old. This is a program I absolutely love, not just for the workouts but for the moms you get to meet and the friendships you make. I started this program as an overweight first time mom who didn’t really have many mom friends. I can say now that I am a much healthier and fitter mom of 3 who has lots of mom friends. Through stroller strides and the companion program, body back, I have lost 55 pounds and have gained a lot of strength and confidence along the way. There are not enough words to describe and to fully explain the love I have for Fit4Mom. If you are even thinking about joining this amazing program give it a go. What do you have to lose?more
Let me just say this first - I love Stroller Strides. I'm going to tell my story a little differently, since I know that a lot of other mamas will probably say some of the other things that I wanted to say.
With my first child, I had some severe baby blues / mild postpartum depression. Exercising outside in the fresh air & sunshine, combined with finding a supportive group of mamas with children the same age, is what helped me most, and started me back on the path to being "me" again. For this, our family cannot thank Stroller Strides enough.
With my second child, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes (aka pregnancy diabetes). Not entirely a surprise, since I have a family history of diabetes and I was over age 35. During this time, I continued to do Stroller Strides, and it helped me control my blood sugars and have a healthy child again.
So I thank Stroller Strides for many things, including the above health reasons and for the friendships (mine and my kids'). I strongly recommend Stroller Strides to anyone looking to be a healthy...more
Joining Stroller Strides has been one of the best decisions I have made! The benefits are endless for my twin daughters and I. What brought me was wanting to exercise and get back into my pre-babies clothes but we have received so much more: fitness, socialization and fun for the girls, mami connections, normalizing of mami challenges and joys, tips for raising kids, nutritional ideas, etc. A huge thank you to Stroller Strides for all you have given us!more
Fit 4 mom has enhanced my life in so many positive ways. It has given my daughter Maddy and I the chance to meet other moms and kids and has given me a new perspective on motherhood. Above all it allows me to still get a workout in and be healthy. It has given me the chance to ask other moms questions and share stories of raising children. Maddy really loves the other kids and it gives her a chance to be outside and do something fun. Fit 4 Mom has changed my life for the better and I highly recommend this program to all the moms out there!more
Even though I'm not very athletic, Stroller Strides is such a great group of women to be involved with. After having my baby, I felt isolated, but Stroller Strides connected me to other local Mommies and Babies - people who have become incredibly important to us. I will always be grateful to Stroller Strides for these friendships, and for the incredibly positive instructors who always helped me feel good about myself, even when I lag behind.more
I love EVERYTHING that Stroller Strides has done for my life. I am back to being healthy and strong, and most importantly, all three of my children understand what it means to be healthy and still LOVE going to each workout!more
