How long have you been a part of F4M & what got you started?

I started with FIT4MOM during my first maternity leave more than 10 years ago! More precisely, March 2008. When I think back to where I was when I started, it feels a life time ago. By myself with my little 3-month old baby, still trying to figure out motherhood, pushing a stroller which wasn't a good SS stroller. And as my body got stronger, I kept going!...

How long have you been a part of F4M & what got you started?

I started Stroller Strides in April 2013 after the birth of my first son. I was looking for a way to be active and get some exercise in with my new baby during my maternity leave. I've always preferred getting my workouts in through a class or a team sport versus going to the gym or going for a run. FIT4MOM was a great way to get in a workout and meet...

I’ve been doing Stroller Strides for about 5months!! I was taking an infant massage instructor class with a fellow F4M participant Krista Kahman and she told me all about stroller strides and how great the FIT4MOM community was! I showed up the next day and have been going to classes 2-3days a week since.

3 years, since my daughter Penelope was about 4 months old. My friend Caitlyn said, "You MUST try Stroller Strides. You WILL love it." and that was pretty convincing. I had also seen the classes in the park by my then apartment and thought it would be a great way to get exercise, introduce myself to other moms and...

In April of 2015 I was walking through Grant Park with my daughter Ansley, who was about four months old at the time, and I noticed a big group of moms with strollers working out at the track. I thought it looked so fun that I signed up for a Stroller Strides trial class the same day, and I’ve been hooked ever...

I had a random Thursday off of work and went on a walk through Grant Park with Henry. While walking through the park, I noticed a group of women working out with their kids in strollers. As...

I joined in May 2016 and am happy to be back after a (not-so) short hiatus. I joined FIT4MOM for the community. I was new to Portland and was hoping to connect with some other new moms in my neighborhood.
