When I first heard of Stroller Strides, I'll be honest, I thought it sounded kind of silly. Mamas paying to work out with their stroller, having play dates, and mom's night out. Well, I can honestly say that joining Fit4Mom Stroller Stride Group has been the best part partum decision I have made. I quickly found out that I needed this in my every day life. It gets me out of bed, kicks my booty into shape, and has given me the social aspect I needed! The instructors are AH-MAZE-ing. I love the intervals, the entertainment for our babies, and a good hearty workout. The Mamas that come have one kid, 3 kids, teenage kids, all different fitness goals, and I LOVE it. Because of Stroller Strides, I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and the thought of losing the weight that I needed to, before I got pregnant, seems actually achievable. But, even with everything that I love about Stroller Strides, I think I love being able to show my daughter how important physical health is. Not the losing weight aspect, but having a group of women that being strong and healthy is an important part...

Body Back Mama

I signed up for Body Back in April but I wasn't excited about it because I've never been big on group workouts. That all changed after the first week. I've never met such an encouraging group of women. It's so nice to be supported by moms just like me. I wasn't sure what I wanted out of the class but here's what I left with: confidence, strength, amazing and supportive friends. I did lost almost 10lbs and 5 inches during my 8-week program but to me, that's just a perk. What matters to me is how much stronger I became and how I have changed my family's lifestyle. My 3-year-old sees me exercising and she wants to too. That's so important to me; that I'm instilling healthy habits so early in her life and she'll never know differently.

I've also changed the way I feel about my body and definitely how I feel about food. That's not to say I don't get off track sometimes but with my support group I always get right back to being healthy. I love how strong I am. I even signed up for a 5K and after I completed that, I signed up for another race. Body Back is so much more than...

I have always been a big girl but I have always also been really active. I worked out up until the day I gave birth and had planned to continue as soon as possible. Then first child life happened and between work, baby David and life all of a sudden David was turning 8 months and I had not done anything in the way of exercise. Thankfully Jennifer Rock never gave up on me and my health, she keep telling me to come to a class. The time didn’t fit into David’s schedule so I had a great excuse for a few weeks until I pushed myself to just give it a try. Mondays are always Mondays so we were running late, David pooped a messy poop upon arrival and I was more than flustered trying to get to this class of strangers and not look like an idiot. Needless to say all my fluster was for nothing, as I walked up I was welcomed by everyone and my tardiness wasn’t even acknowledged they were just happy to have me join in. It was a tough day having not worked our for months I was pushing myself more than I had in a while. Towards the end of Monday’s workout at the Aquarium there is a run/jog up to...

Stroller strides. Productive, healthy group of individuals trying to improve as people and as parents. Motivating and encouraging each other as we go through the adventure of caring for ourselves and our liitle humans.

It is wonderful to know that every day I can connect with someone that empathizes with my day. My toddler mimics me after work outs, letting me know he is already creating healthy habits just by watching us have fun together exersizing. His friends he found here are his best friends.....same goes for me.

This is one of the most friendliest and welcoming group of ladies I have ever met. I joined because I am new in town and don't have any friends or family here plus to shed a few lbs...boy I'm glad I did! The girls go out of their way to get to know you so there was zero intimidation! Workouts are hard you build up a good sweat everytime and feel it the next couple of days! It's so important for moms to have interaction with other people their age and not just babies! Lol this group saved my sanity!!! Plus my girl loves playtime afterwards!

I love SS not just because I get to workout outside, but also because this nonjudgmental, diverse group of Moms "keep it real" when it comes to raising kids. The group allows my toddler to socialize with other kiddos and adults. And I'm getting to enjoy exercising in sites around the city I wouldn't normally do on my own. The group, for me and my little one, has been a safe way to leave our comfort zone and interact with others.

This class has not only gotten me back into shape and working towards my goal of where I want to be physically, but it has given me something to look forward to and I can honestly say I love this group! Y'all mean a lot to me, give my daughter a positive example to live and learn by, get us out of the house smile emoticon and gave me confidence in myself again! I get competitive and I love engaging that side of myself. I seriously don't know what I would do without this class to look forward to everyday. Carson loves seeing the other kids and I love that we are showing her that exercise is a part of our daily routine. Back in June, Portland was my very first class and I'm SOOO glad I went that day. Thank you Jenn, Carrie, Sarah and Amanda!!

Stroller Strides CC is a GREAT group! Excellent instructors and inspiring moms everywhere. This is a great, challenging workout for a lifetime excerciser, and it's easily modified if you're just a beginner. It has allowed me to get back to working out, with two kids under age 3 in tow. Love that the workouts are outdoors and there are lots of post workout play opportunities for the little ones! It's been a great way for me to meet some people in the area. Great for mental health too. I really can't say enough about it! I've really loved my time in SS!

I remember when I first started stroller strides. I didn't know a soul and I was scared and falling apart at every seam mentally due to PPD. I mustered up my courage and texted Jennifer Rock and asked where I could meet them that day. She gave me so much love and encouragement from that moment on. She even hugged me my first day and told me she was there for me and introduced me to all the mommas in the group. I have since felt like a soul that has been saved. My life wouldn't be anything like what it is today without these ladies and this group. Can't thank you ladies enough for all that you do. smile emoticon

Sisterly love is really something special.

It's hard for me to articulate how wonderful Stroller Strides has been for me and my boys because the group has impacted us in countless positive ways. I joined Stroller Strides when my family and I were recently relocated to Corpus Christi and I was five months pregnant. I have never felt better, and I attribute it to my Stroller Strides workout! Not only do I get an awesome workout, but we have become part of a fabulous community. We are incredibly grateful to have found this group and look forward to every workout. Jennifer and the other instructors are superb -- both as people and as teachers!
