At FIT4MOM, we provide moms with the Strength for Motherhood and that includes mental, emotional AND physical strength. From a physical standpoint, we believe in "functional fitness". This kind of exercise focuses on creating strength in our every day movement patterns. A mom's life has a lot of specific movements that we emphasize in our classes. Here are some examples:
About the Writer: Kat Guessard is the owner of FIT4MOM Sherman Oaks/Studio City and Certified Stroller Strides Fitness Instructor.
Shortly after the birth of my son, Jack in 2009 I became a Stroller Strides mom and attended classes regularly. After a little hiatus from classes, I returned with my 1 year old daughter, Stella. My experience with Stroller Strides inspires me, motivates me and gives me the opportunity to meet some wonderful mamas. Getting out into the sunshine and exercising with other moms in an environment without judgement, lots of laughter and of course, our kids has been life changing. The experience helped me to embrace my new identity as a mom without losing myself as an individual and spending time with other moms, of all ages, from all backgrounds, has shown me the true meaning of community. Because of this experience, it wasn't a hard decision for me to take over the franchise in the summer of 2014. I've been there, and I know how hard it can be to get out of the house, to get off the sofa (even to shower, hello!) and put yourself out there. When a mom shows up to class for the first time, it's a victory and I am excited to have a chance to be there to congratulate you and introduce you and your children to a community of new friends. It’s been wonderful to watch you grow and to hear stories of success as you reach your fitness goals. Stroller Stride Mamas inspire me on a daily basis! It is my privilege to be able to bring you a fun calendar filled with specialty classes, Our Village playdates and crafts, as well a regular Mom's Night Out. We are also proud to offer some evening classes and Saturday classes for working mamas. I look forward to seeing you in class soon!
