How do I fit fitness in with my kids?

I hear this question All.The.Time!

Although my classes are called FITMOM and Baby, there are many moms in the class that do not have a baby anymore!  What do we do then?  What about those who have a “baby” but also have toddlers, or even homeschooled older children?  No one really wants to just bring baby and leave the others with a sitter!

We have FITMOM and Children classes!!

If you are a mom of more than 1, more than 2 or 5, may not phase you!  So come out and have fun with us!  It shows all our family members that fitness is fun!

FITMOM and Children!

What do I do when?….

One thing I like to do with many of my classes is have a 15 min info session at the end of every workout. Somedays it works well, others, not so much! By ‘not so much’, I mean some days we just can’t do it, and other days we just can’t stick within that 15 min time frame an it goes to 20 or 30 min. Oh well!!
The classes I really try to do it with are the prenatal FITMOM2Be classes and the FITWOMAN classes.

I get many different questions from some of the clients, an I offer to you all reading, to ask me questions as well!
Here are some regular questions:

Q. what do I do when my spouse want to relax at 9pm and snack on bad foods?
A. Go brush your teeth and run from the mainfloor to the basement and back, more than once if you need to! After you brush your teeth you don’t want to eat again or you will have to brush again, so brush, and then do an activity to get your mind off food, also, drink a huge glass of water!

Q. Do I have to do 1 full hour of activity everyday at the same time or can it be broken up to 2-30 min sessions?
A. It can be broken up to 6-10min sessions if you want! Most people just want to get it over and done with, but as long as you feel like you are working to about 80% for most of the time, you are doing great! If we look at a 10 min session, about 2 min for warm up with an intensity level of about 6, 3 min for a cool down a
with an intensity of about 5, there is only 5 min where you have to bust your butt at around a 7 or 8, work a minute at a 9 and your golden!

I’ll do more of these posts as questions come to me! There are hundreds of questions I get, but it will take me some time to get them all out!
