FIT4MOM at Indian School Park May, 2017

If you were to ask ten moms what they find most challenging about motherhood, I'm confident you would receive ten different answers. My response would be "time management." Healthy living, connecting with other mothers and finding opportunities for my son to socialize are all important to me but it was not always easy to fit everything into our day. Luckily, a friend recommended I try FIT4MOM and I am so glad I did! FIT4MOM offers fitness programs for all stages of motherhood, including Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre. Geared for moms with little ones in strollers, these classes provide full-body workouts and are great for all fitness levels. After each class there are play dates for the children as well as weekly activities like story time and crafts. Additionally, we organize monthly gatherings called 'Mom's Night Out." Both my son and I have benefitted from the FIT4MOM community. I encourage moms to try a class if they are looking for a challenging workout, want to meet new people or just need an excuse to get out of the house! FIT4MOM Metro Phoenix has classes throughout the valley including our newest location, Steele Indian School Park. We meet at this beautiful park every Tuesday and Thursday at 9:30am and the first class is always free. Additional locations and more information can be found on the website: metrophoenix.fit4mom.com
