I've made no secret of the fact that I love my Stroller Strides classes - ever since I discovered Stroller Strides in Virginia 6 years ago, I've been totally hooked. The chance to get a great workout while my kids are with me, while socializing with wonderful, supportive moms and giving my girls the chance to socialize with other kids, to discover new parks that I might not otherwise have seen, all for a reasonable cost? Yes, please.

After my first free class in March 2011 (with 15-month-old Ella in a sad little umbrella stroller, surrounded by more experienced moms with rugged looking BOB jogging strollers) - I immediately signed up for the unlimited monthly membership, and attended class as often as I could. When I found out that I was pregnant with Katie the following month, I remember feeling kind of silly about making some 'big announcement' since I barely knew these ladies, but they were all so excited and supportive when I told them after class one day.

When my oldest daughter, Evey, was four months old I showed up to my first Stroller Strides class nervous as any new mom would be. I parked my car, pulled out my Chicco stroller, latched my car seat into place and headed inside. Ten minutes before class was set to start, I breastfeed Evey and waited for another mama to show up.

The first person to stroll in was the instructor, Amy. She made me feel welcomed within the first few minutes. As we went around to introduce ourselves and our babies I was amazed by the fact that Amy's son was actually one month younger than Evey and here she was teaching an exercise class and looking AMAZING in her workout gear. I thought-that will never be me!

From the day I found out I was pregnant, exercise ceased to be a priority. I literally stopped working out the day I took my pregnancy test. So for me Stroller Strides became my reintroduction to exercise. And from that first class, it became part of our routine. I scheduled all our appointments, classes, and play dates around Stroller Strides. I realized that this...
