It's hard to believe that it's been 13 years since the first Stroller Strides class here in San Diego. Since then, we have released programs such as Lean Mommy, Fit4Baby and Body Back. We have opened over 1,000 locations in over 40 states. But one thing hasn't changed since that very first class. We are here to give women the strength for motherhood. Physically, we realize that you want to achieve change in your body. But we have yet to meet a mom who doesn't need support at any stage of motherhood. Where else can you go to realize you are not alone? Get support, inspiration, motivation? Where can you go to get tips on everything from nursing to teething, from nap time to teenagers? Franchises like McDonalds pride themselves on giving you the same hamburger whether you are in New York or Phoenix. Our hope is that you feel the same love in any of our classes. I once heard someone say that Starbucks is in the coffee business serving people. Well we are in the fitness business serving moms.
Thank you for allowing us to serve you for the past 13 years. And most of all thank you for being part of our village. It's not just the instructor who makes its happen. It's you. The spirit of the classes comes from you. It comes from our moms who reach out to introduce themselves to the new moms. It comes from the meal trains for the moms in need. It comes from the mom who puts her arms around another and says, "it's going to be ok." You are the spirit of FIT4MOM. We thank you for being a part of it and making it so special. We celebrate with all of you!
