We are so lucky to have you all in our VILLAGE!
Name: Kristen Barry
Child name and age: Samantha, 12 months
Where are you from: Originally from Lansing, MI, but I've been in the Chicago area for 10 years.
Favorite Thing/Memory about Fit4Mom: It has been so beneficial for me to get out and meet new moms, all with the common goal of finding time to fit in workouts with your little one. I love that the kids have playtime after our workouts too!
Favorite Exercise: Squats are great because they are very effective, and anything that works the love handles!
Favorite Mom-me time of the day: First thing in the morning sitting in bed snuggling with Samantha, drinking a cup of coffee while she has her bottle. Also, checking things off my to-do list during nap time.
What motivates you to exercise: Knowing that exercise makes me feel better, physically and mentally, and that when Samantha is with me, she is learning these healthy habits.
Piece of advice for new moms: Get involved in activities with other new moms - the sooner the better! I waited until my daughter was 6 months and wish I would've gotten out there sooner.
