Today is Friday and I am 17 weeks pregnant! Yay! This is my third child and so far I have gained 9 pounds! This pregnancy is very different. This time around I work out 3 days a week with Stroller Strides! They have a great prenatal program called Fit 4 Baby! It’s a great workout and best of all I get to bring my kids!
I first discovered Stroller Strides in Charleston, SC after the birth of my son, Vasili! I wanted (and needed) to shed some weight, meet some moms and just get out of the house! Stroller Strides allowed for me to do all three! A group of moms would meet and workout with a certified instructor for about an hour (with our strollers and babies). The we would cool down with some ab work and yoga, and then have some fun with the babies and the LUNA Moms club!
When my husband told me we were moving to Upstate NY, all I could think of was what about my Stroller Strides?? How would I survive without it? It has kept me sane and healthy! Well, no sooner did I get up here when I heard a mom from Albany was starting a franchise! My prayers were answered!
Julie Blazick is the local Stroller Strides owner. She currently holds classes 3 times a week with her son, Jack, in downtown Saratoga Springs! It is a great workout and a great way to meet other moms and get to know the town! Once a week the LUNA Moms club has a playgroup for the children. This is geared for children of all ages! Some activities include bubbles (because who doesn’t like bubbles?) a playground, or even meeting for coffee and letting the kids have some free play together! It’s not just about social time for mommy, but social time for the children as well!
