Fit Mom Wellness Program
Pregnancy and delivery is one of the most amazing experiences a woman's body will go through in life, but it also takes a toll. Exercising after delivery is one of the best things a mother can do for her mental and physical health.
Benefits of postpartum exercise include:
- Decreased risk of postpartum depression
- Improved sleep
- Boost in energy
- Weight loss
- Stronger core muscles
- Decreased stress levels
- Improved urinary incontinence
In our 6-week program designed for postpartum mothers and their babies, we focus on common issues women will experience after giving birth. Each weekly class will consist of walking around the track, a workout, and discussion of postpartum issues. Workouts will be led by a certified group exercise instructor and will target the core, pelvic floor, and upper body muscles. Strollers are welcome on the track! In addition, the program will provide group support for moms and their babies.
The program will feature special guest speakers to discuss various issues mother's face after giving birth such as:

Chiropractor: Maintaining proper alignment while nursing, feeding, and holding your baby

Benefits of touch, relaxation, and connection through massage and yoga

"It is the perfect way to get back into exercise after having a baby! Deb is awesome and made me feel comfortable exercising at the level I was at." - Nelson L.
"This was a great opportunity to do something for yourself as a new mom. It's hard to make time for yourself, so having others hold you accountable to show up to class twice a week was very helpful. Also, the stories shared with other members along with the discussion topics of the guest speakers helped provided refreshing new ideas on how to tackle some challenges faced as a mom!
The exercises helped give me back confidence that I could do those things again! And the guest speakers had good insights/tips and tricks into new challenges we face as moms" - Teagan P.
Fit Mom Wellness Program is designed for new moms and their infants up to age 9 months or when they are mobile. We ask that the new mom's are cleared to exercise by their physician.
