When I registered for FIT4MOM last February, My son was 10 months old, I had just moved to Long Beach and had no support system here yet. I also was needing to shed some baby weight. After my first week of classes I knew that this was something I could stick with. I felt completely at ease with all the other women, everyone was so welcoming and easy to talk to, and the best part was that I was getting out, seeing my new community and discovering it with my son too. By summertime I was attending as many classes as I could, inspired to make changes in my diet and overall health, I finally got down to my pre-pregnancy weight. But with FIT4MOM I knew I could go ever farther! By December I had lost a total of 30lbs. I'm stronger, more energized, and in better shape than I was even before baby. I now have a place where I feel I belong, and I've made some really fantastic friendships.
I give credit to Stacy and all the instructors with FIT4MOM Long Beach. I have achieved nearly everything I'd originally hoped to get out of going to stroller strides when I first began this...more
I was 17 weeks pregnant with my second son when I found FIT4MOM Long Beach and after one class I was hooked. Not only was the workout way more intense than I expected (you mean it's not just a bunch of women walking their strollers through a neighborhood?), but I also was amazed by how inviting and kind all of the moms were. The moms night events and field trips are so much fun, and I love that they even provide crafts for the kids after classes. Motherhood is not easy, which is why it's so important to have a community around you. I found my tribe at FIT4MOM Long Beach and I'm so grateful.more
FIT4MOM is THE place to meet other mommas and get in shape (no matter your fitness level)! The instructors challenge you, encourage you, and the group motivates you. I have never enjoyed working out as much as I do now.
I started when my son Drew was 3 months old and VERY fussy. He loved moving in the stroller, being sung to, and the instructors often took over pushing Drew so I could get the best workout in. FIT4MOM classes got us up and motivated to get out and about.
The best thing about FIT4MOM is that it is all mommas that understand exactly what you are going through. We'd workout, vent, get advice, have play dates, and Mom's Nights. I have made the truest of friends and just celebrated 1 year of living an active healthy lifestyle!more
I have been a client at FIT4MOM Long Beach for almost 3.5 years now and it has changed everything for me about being a mom! I have made amazing friendships, some that will be life long I am sure. I have also stayed in shape during two pregnancies after joining! I even was able to run a half marathon in between pregnancies because of FIT4MOM. I love the village that has been created by the other moms and how supportive every one is. I am so thankful that I have friends that can give me advice, tips, encouragement, and support! I have told many other friends about FIT4MOM because it has been amazing to me and feeling connected as a mom.
A specific event is when our home was robbed; fellow FIT4MOM mommies rallied together to bring meals for us, donated money to us to replace items and gave us a Target gift card! I was blown away by all their support during that very difficult time! And on top of that, the mommies brought meals to us when my other two sons were born.
Thanks so much FIT4MOM mommies!!more
