Santa Cruz County is rich in activities for kids and parents. It’s a very welcoming place to be for a new mom!
When we moved here I didn’t know a single person besides my husband and his work friends and after having my first baby I felt a little isolated. I decided to reach out to the “Mommy Community” on social media and see what was out there. I discovered the wonderful company, Stroller Strides Fit 4 Mom . The first workout I did after having Austin was with them at a local park. They customize the workouts to fit each individual mom, whether you are a few months postpartum or a couple years. The workouts always starts with a quick discussion and continues on to a mix of different workouts to work out each body part. Did I mention that your kids can sit in the stroller and eat/play and be involved. During the workout the instructor leads fun songs and rhymes to keep them entertained and happy!
Most workouts end with a chance for all the toddlers and babies to play or with a scheduled toddler activity. I always leave the class feeling like I got a good workout and my kids had fun at the same time.
The saying is true that “it takes a village to raise a child”. Stroller strides is a tribe that I love to be a part of! Most are run by local moms and there are so many wonderful places that have these groups!
