Spring is finally coming! We’ve had a glimpse of warm weather and it looks like we’ll FINALLY see more this week. And, each year when spring comes, FITMOM’s Get FIT for Summer with UNLIMITED Classes Promotion comes with it! It’s the time of year when all fitness providers are working hard to convince you to join their classes/gym, so you’re likely trying to figure out: WHY should I join FITMOM and register for this promotion?
Here are my top FIVE reasons:
1. Working out more than once a week has tons of benefits
Seeing results more quickly is one of the biggest benefits of being active more than once a week. It’s well known that it takes four weeks for you to notice differences in yourself, eight weeks for friends and family to notice and twelve weeks for everyone else to notice. Committing to our Get Fit For Summer Promotion is a great way to show everyone else how hard you’ve worked!
It’s also well documented that you’ll begin to see dramatic improvements in your aerobic fitness and cardiorespiratory health when you are consistently exercising between two and four times per week.
With One Indoor FITMOM+Baby classes, Four FITMOM Stroller Strength and two FITWOMAN classes on the schedule, it’s even easier to get out to two or three classes each week! Check out our Summer Schedule here.
2. You get to bring your baby/older children to class with you (or not!)
How great is it that you get to workout using your baby as resistance? As your baby grows, you’ll use her weight to help you become stronger!
I know many moms who took FITMOM classes with their first baby and are excited to come back when they have their second (or third or even fourth!) baby, but either don’t have care for their older children or school is out and kids are at home for the summer. Don’t worry, you’re welcome to bring your older children to class with you. Snacks and toys are a big help to keep them busy, but often big brothers and sisters want to just “workout” alongside (or on top of) their mommies! My boys were regular attendees as well, but this summer they may only make a rare special appearance, if there is a meal involved after class 🙂 On the rare occasion that they do join me, they have lots of fun hanging with the babies and enjoying the summer of outdoor fitness with their mom too!
You’re also welcome to attend any of the daytime classes solo, if that’s what works best for your schedule. When you want a little “me” time, then FITWOMAN outdoor bootcamp classes are just for you!
3. We’re exercising in the great outdoors
We can have some long and cold winters, making it nearly impossible to get outside with our wee ones, so as the days get longer and the weather becomes warmer, most of us want to be outside enjoying every moment we can! Classes run in the sun and the rain, but lucky for us, all three of our FITMOM Stroller Strength locations have lots of shade to keep your babies cool and some form of covered area to protect you and your babies from the rain.
4. You’ll meet a great community of women
One of the BEST things to come out of my maternity leave all those years ago, was the friends I
made. It was this community of moms that taught me so much about family, babies and parenting, all in a very ad hoc way. When I had questions or concerns, these were the friends I turned to then, and still do today. I’m still hanging out with these moms and we’re still bouncing advice off one another (although our questions and concerns have changed quite a bit from thirteen years ago!). I’ve seen many new friendships “born” at FITMOM classes, and think that is one of my favourite aspects of our classes.
5. I think Bob Barker is Calling you to “Come on Down”- The Price is Right!
Our spring/summer schedule has SEVEN classes to choose from. The more often you can attend classes in a week, the lower your cost per class is. There are multiple FITMOM Stroller Strength and FITWOMAN classes offered across Durham Region all summer long, so you could attend multiple classes a week! We’ve also added an additional FITMOM+Baby class on Mondays from May-July 11th for those who like the option of exercising with the Air Conditioning 🙂 The more frequently you can attend a class, the better you will feel and the more quickly you will see the results of your efforts!
