Come, as you are, mama. That is the greatest thing about FIT4MOM, and particularly, the Village at FIT4MOM Las Vegas. As I was driving away after Stroller Strides last week, I randomly thought to myself, “you never wear makeup anymore,” and then I realized, none of the mamas at class were wearing makeup…today, or any day. Stay with me here, I know its common sense, “you don’t really wear makeup to go workout, and hello, you’ve been working...

I remember my first class like it was yesterday! I was so nervous being a brand new mom (my baby was 7 months), new to Nevada, and honestly, new to working out. I pull up and park in the right spot (thank gosh), I see a mom getting a stroller out; 'this has to be the right place' i think to myself. I timidly ask her, "umm hi, is this where we go for stroller strides?". Without a thought she says, "Yes! I'm Natalie, you're going to love it,...
