Meet our Mom of the Month- Dannielle! Dannielle has been Stroller Striding since last summer and recently completed her first Body Back session with amazing results. Her smile and energy is contagious!
Name: Dannielle Samios
Child name and age: Aiden, age 1
Where are you from: I grew up in the Blue Mountains - 2 hours west of Sydney, NSW, Australia.
Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: The summer Stroller Barre classes with Jackie Brittain Stuut by the lake with that amazing view of the city.
Favorite Exercise: I don’t have a car so I walk a lot and really enjoy it. Especially now that I have Aiden its nice taking the stroller outside walking around the neighbourhoods. When I workout, I love doing squats and lunges - I am always guaranteed to be sore the next day so I know its working.
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: Aiden's morning nap from 10:30 to 12:30. I get on the laptop and do my online shopping, wedding Pinterest browsing and catching up on my guilty pleasure tv shows.
What motivates you to exercise: My current motivation is to look and feel fabulous in my wedding dress at our wedding celebration with our family and friends in Ireland in August. I also love the interaction with other mums during my workouts so that always gets me out of the house in the morning.
Piece of advice for new moms: When someone offers to look after the baby so you can have some “me time” take them up on the offer - even if it is just for a 5 minute walk or a coffee by yourself, it makes the world of a difference and the refreshing feeling is so worth it.
