Erin’s baby was only three months old when she saw a poster for CareerFit Mom in her neighbourhood.
“I didn’t have any numerical goals – just wanted to kickstart a healthy and active routine in my life,” she says.
Finding CareerFit Mom was the key. The exercise classes available were created with a new mom in mind – varied and accessible, making them easier for Erin to fit into her busy “mommy” schedule. Bit by bit, Erin got fit and lost inches –she is now an incredible twenty pounds lighter than her pre-pregnancy weight!
“Everyone in the classes understood what my body had been through so I wasn’t easily discouraged,” she explains, adding that she was amazed by the new support system of mothers she found at class. “Now, I am back at work and I continue to be motivated by the new networks of mothers I found through CareerFit Mom.”
“We spend so much time nurturing our family, we often forget about ourselves. Nothing can help us be the best mothers we can be than by being strong and healthy.”
