Why exercise needs a PR makeover

seattletimes.com

It is time to decouple exercise from weight loss. That boot camp may not make you lose weight, but it will have health benefits.

Prior to having kids, exercise was always a means to an end. Trips to the gym were always in a futile effort to lose a few pounds, and when I didn't see results in that first week or two I'd just let it fall by the wayside. When I found Stroller Strides, it wasn't just a desperate hope to shoehorn myself back into my prepregnancy pants - I had a deep need to find and connect with other moms. In this stage in my life, I've developed a different relationship with exercise. It is no longer the tool that I use to try to torture my body into a specific shape. Instead, it feeds my soul. Not only is there joy in moving my body, but it is consistently the hour of the day that is MINE. I get to be me and let all the other noise fall by the wayside. And the crazy thing? Over time, my body did change. Because I kept going, because I missed the formerly inevitable step where I got discouraged by the lack of immediate results. Mamas, moving your body is a great thing. It makes us feel good, it helps take care of ourselves, and of course there's a ton of physical benefits. Now, all we need to do is reclaim it for ourselves!

Mom Brain Strikes Again Yeah, oops. I had a total mom brain moment and got the Run Club start date wrong on the last email, here's all the correct stuff. 5k/10k training starts 3/3. The rest of the details are the same, sign up below! - B Have you always wanted to run, but weren't sure how to start?...

Yeah, I got the start date for Run Club wrong on my last email. Total mom brain move. Oops! 5k/10k training for Run Club starts NEXT SATURDAY, not the 10th. You joining us?

Hey Mama, what's your workout?

Preheader text Did you know that we're way more than just strollers? One of the best things about FIT4MOM is that we have fitness for ALL stages of motherhood, starting with prenatal and moving on to mom & me Stroller workouts, kid-free HIIT workouts, run club, AND our Village. Have you had a chance...

Check it out ladies! Stuff. And I am resisting the urge to hashtag it "Stuff and nonsense" a la Marilla Cuthbert (because we know that she would have been all about the hashtags).

I read this on Rants From Mommyland and it really resonated: "People talk about “self care” like it’s all stretchy pants and buying yourself lattes. I must be doing it wrong because it always seems to be about doing things I don’t really want to because they keep me functioning/sane/sort of healthy/not a huge B to my people. Things like getting root canals and sleeping instead of Netflix and NOT EATING DELICIOUS CHEESY GARBAGE." Self care doesn't mean always making the easy decision. Sometimes it means making the doctors appointment or going for that workout - because it turns out that you ultimately feel a lot worse when you skip the important stuff when it all feels too hard. As important as it is to not put too much pressure on ourselves as moms, I think we forget that pressure is what makes diamonds. Balance goes both ways; some days it's grabbing that cookie that looks AMAZING, and some days it's going for that workout even when you may feel more like staying home.

Have you seen that registration is open for the next Body Back session? AND, you have 3 days to save $50! Coupon expires Sunday night. YOU know that you want to sign up, so jump on it! Sessions start the week of 3/12, with the following options (all out of our studio at 8007 Lake City Way NE) M/W/F 5:45am T/F 9:15am (optional childcare) M/W 9:45am (optional childcare) M/W 7:30pm T/Sa 7:00pm/7:30am You in?

Thinking about the New Year session of Body Back? Obviously, it’s December 23rd and we’re all a little distracted. But you know what? The morning of the 26th it’s ON. Emails are going out and you ladies are getting signed up. #itshappening #beready #justsurvivethenextfewdays #bodyback #fit4mom

I'm getting into my New Year's planning, and I have to admit, every year I struggle a bit. If you've noticed, I don't do the whole "New Year, New You" narrative. It's weird. There are a lot of great reasons why we should get active, like 'good health' and 'feeling good'. But I feel like I'm also being deliberately obtuse if I pretend like many of us aren't hoping to lose weight when we take a fitness class. After all, that was where I was when I started. How do I balance this? Acknowledge that after a period of our lives that involves gaining a whole bunch of weight, the thing that folks want to hear about is how the hell to move that scale back down? But I still want each and every one of you ladies to know that you are SO MUCH more than just a number on the scale. Because the truth is, there is no secret when it comes to losing weight. Eat lots of veggies, not a lot of sugar. Move your body. And now do this consistently. The secret part? It's in getting to a point where you're ready to change. Because where we get stuck is that you don't change if you keep doing the exact same things that you did before. #newyear #bodyback #dontneedanewyou #stuff #fit4mom #fit4momseattle #themotherhoodisreal

Do you spend the holiday season living off of Christmas cookies and a lot of wine? Do you find yourself overwhelmed, and MEAN to get in a workout but it never seems to happen? Does working out actually help you to feel better? Do your pants fit differently on December 26? Mama, we get it. The holidays are a crazy time of year, no matter what you celebrate. They're filled with friends, family, a LOT of food, and it can be hard to take care of yourself. Our Holiday session is all about honoring yourself and your traditions, but also learning how to celebrate in a way that doesn't leave you feeling hungover for a month straight. Join us. Grab your spot now, because Early Bird ends on Tuesday night!!! We want you to join us, how can we help get you in? #themotherhoodisreal #bodyback #bootcamp #hiit #seattlemom #momlife #holidaysurvival

Surprisingly lovely morning at Greenlake today! We're just about into Fall, and yet we lucked out with a great hour for Strides this morning. #strollerstrides #wedidnthavetotrainintherain #fit4mom

Tomorrow is the day! Join us at 9:30 at Greenlake for our Back To School Celebration - a free Stroller Strides class, snacks, swag bags for the first 40 folks to RSVP (link in the comments!), and some raffle prizes. Will you be there?

These ladies KILLED IT at the Women of Wonder race this morning! And it's because of the hard work they put in. They have been training for these past 8 weeks with our Run Club, and today's race was their victory lap. Congratulations! #womenofwonder #motherrunner #fit4mom #runclub #theykilledit

What's in this envelope, you ask? Just gift certificates from Super Jock n Jill, to raffle off for our Back To School Celebration on the 20th! You coming?

Stuff is rolling in for our swag bags for our Back To School celebration! Check this out - Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer!

Do you or someone you know have something that would like to see featured in our gift bags or as a raffle prize? Email bridgetdwyer@fit4mom.com! #backtoschool #themotherhoodisreal #smashbox #strollerstrides

#latergram That time the dance studio was closed for maintenance during the last week of a Body Back session! These ladies were SUCH troopers, they were amazing. Unfortunately, there are pretty much no replacement options at 7pm at Greenlake (if you have one on M/W nights, PM me) so outside we went! #bootcamp #bodyback #greenlake #hiit

This just arrived in my personal Inbox from a gym that I tried one class at and didn't like at all. I feel like my gut was right on that one. Here's a summer detox for you: your liver. Ta da!

I very rarely bust this move out, but since we were doing partner work in Body Back today, I had to do it! Partner workouts are so much fun :) (sorry Strides ladies, this one is strictly BB) #bodyback #partnerworkout #thatonewasreallyhard #bootcamp #fit4mom

1 sign of a great summer: you forget to take pics most of the time. So instead, I'm going to post some of my faves! This is a Body Back workout on a weekend morning at Greenlake! I love these #hiit workouts, because they're a chance to not only challenge these ladies, but to also seem them give me their best. It may look different from day to day, but it is really amazing to see the determination that these ladies put into that single hour. I love it! #bodyback #bootcamp #themotherhoodisreal #momlife #seattlemom

Your kids are out of the stroller. You're back to work. You're ready for that killer workout. Now what? Body Back. That's what. Sessions start early September in Greenlake, Queen Anne, and Capitol Hill. Need details?
