Favorite Thing/Memory about FIT4MOM: This community of moms has been amazing! They have helped me find myself again after a difficult pregnancy, labor, delivery and NICU stay, these ladies have helped me be the best mom I can be... Finding the fun in difficult moments and giving great advice. Our instructor, Stefanie Cohen, does an amazing job of facilitating connections with the other moms and has become trusted adviser and good friend! Not to mention giving an awesome workout three days a week! The best thing about Fit4Mom is that I know now that I am surrounded by moms going through the same things I am. I am not alone!
Favorite Exercise: Rainbow Glute Kicks
Favorite Mom-Me time of the day: Post Stroller Strides workout when all the kids are playing together! Also, I'd say first thing in the morning when I go into Christina's room and she greets me with a great big smile!
What motivates you to exercise: Being healthy for my baby and to be a good example for her of how to live a healthy lifestyle
Piece of advice for new moms: Get out there and connect with other moms!
