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 journey, and I am so grateful.
