Returning to Group Fitness

Starting in July I will officially be back to teaching group fitness….yay! I had a hiatus the last couple of years and have really missed it. I’m thankful to have the opportunity and even better, Charlotte gets to come with me to class!

She’s pretty stoked about the whole thing.

Through Fit4Mom, I’ll be teaching Stroller Strides and occasionally Fit4Baby classes. I’m super passionate about pre/post natal fitness, so I am very excited to be a part of this company. Since I’m already certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), I only needed to pass an online exam to become certified to teach. Yay!

Fit4Mom programs include Stoller Strides, Stroller Barre, Body Back and Fit4baby. So many fun classes to choose from no matter what stage you are at in your pregnancy or mommyhood. (Type in your zipcode and see if there are any classes in your area)

A unique component to Stroller Strides is designing a workout that engages the kids as well as giving the mommas a kick butt workout. The workout is a little more than just cardio and strengthening, we sing songs and play games with the little ones.  I love the creativity involved and know there can’t be any way I could get bored teaching this class.

When we moved to Dallas, I had every intention of finding a stroller fitness class that I could take and eventually teach. Such a great way for moms to get out of the house, get back into exercise, and not having to worry about a sitter for the kiddos.

 I started taking classes in January and fell in love with the workout as well as getting the chance to meet moms in my area. Each Stroller Stride location holds weekly Meetups and playgroups, all free to join! These are wonderful if you are new to a city or just want to meet people in your area! We’ve gone to a few meetups, Charlie is usually sleeping through them, but soon enough she will be able to participate!

I’m finishing up my team teaching the next couple of weeks and then I’ll be officially on my own. Woo! I’m glad they aren’t making me rush back into it too quickly as I’m feeling more confident with everything each week. I’ll be sure to report back after teaching my first class!

Have you ever taken a stroller fitness class?

Do you like to workout with your little ones?

Thanks for stopping by friends! ~M

    That’s awesome to hear, congrats lady! I’m sure you’re a great group fitness instructor! So I came out of my barre class the other day, and I was like, “WHOA, BABIESSS!” because there were all of these cute little ones crawling around getting ready for the barre with your baby class. Have you done any of those yet? I imagine it’s tough doing barre with your baby strapped to you!
