Mom's Night Out
After I had my daughter in 2013, I did not simply lose my baby weight by breastfeeding, as a part of me had hoped. I was heavier than I had ever been and something needed to change. I was running regularly but my body needed something else to kickstart weight loss. When Adelyn was 9 months I joined a mom's workout group in Chico that transformed my fitness. I was motivated by the aspect of socializing with other moms and loved getting my butt kicked. The pounds started shedding off. I have lost 50 lbs since my postpartum months and I am physically stronger than I have ever been.
When my husband and I decided to move back to our hometown I immediately began planning a way to bring this idea to Quincy. I started Mountain Mamas in June 2015 with outdoor workouts in the summer and indoor workouts during the cold months.
I am a NASM Women's Fitness Specialist and a certified Yoga Instructor. My workouts combine cardio, strength and endurance training, pilates and yoga for a dynamic all body workout. I incorporate kid's songs and books to keep them entertained as well. My classes can accommodate any fitness level. I am trained in prenatal fitness and pregnant mamas are welcome to join. Moms must wait six weeks postpartum (eight weeks for c-sections) before attending classes.
I have since moved my family to Tahoe, however Mountain Mamas is still going! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to be connected with these ladies.
Do i need to bring my kids?
Absolutely not!! The workouts are designed to focus on the mamas, no kids needed. Finding childcare for a workout class is tricky and exercising on your own can be challenging. If you do bring your children, strollers are recommended for our longer runs. Older kids sometimes bring bikes.
What Our group offers
- Weekly workouts
- Family hikes (weather permitting)
- Monthly Mom's Night Outs
