Stroller Strides Las Vegas marks one year in business with name change and new classes

LAS VEGAS (July 17, 2013) – The fitness program for moms and their babies that has garnered a group of loyal fans over the last year is changing its name and adding several new classes. Formerly Stroller Strides® Las Vegas, Fit4Mom® Las Vegas will continue to offer Stroller Strides classes in Town Square Park as well as add new Fit4Baby® and BodyBack® classes this fall. Fit4Mom Las Vegas offers moms an opportunity to get in shape, meet other moms and have fun with their baby.

Fit4Mom launched at Town Square in July 2012 with one instructor, franchisee owner Jessica Peralta, a former Critical Care RN and Clinical Professor. Since that time, the program has grown to include eight instructors and 102 members, with more than 300 participants in the past year.

As a mother of three, including a newborn, Peralta said her whole family is involved in her business, and the success it has achieved in just one year is remarkable.

“The success in large part is due to the location at Town Square, which has been a favorite spot for many moms because they can stay after class and shop, get coffee, go to Whole Foods Market or sit and chat with each other and their babies in the park,” said Peralta, who launched a franchise of Stroller Strides after trying to find a business she could own as a stay at home mom that would involve her passion for motherhood and her nursing background. “It’s incredibly rewarding to not only help our moms reach their fitness goals but to see best friendships being formed from this program.”

Fit4Mom offers participants a chance to bond over more than fitness classes including, running teams, Moms with a Mission community service opportunities, Mom’s Night Out and Plum Mom’s Club programs.

Classes are all taught by certified fitness instructors and include:

  • Stroller Strides® – Stroller Strides is a total fitness program that moms can do with their babies. It includes power walking/jogging and intervals of strength and body toning exercise using exercise tubing, your stroller and the environment. Stroller Strides instructors weave songs and activities into the routine designed to engage and entertain baby, while moms are led through a series of exercises specific to her role as mom. Babies should be at least six weeks of age to participate, and they can be up to any age as long as they remain in the stroller. Moms should wear athletic shoes, bring a towel or mat for ground exercises and any type of stroller. Additional class times will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 a.m. starting on July 23.
  • Fit4Baby® - Fit4Baby will start fall 2013 and is designed for pregnant moms. It will strengthen the body for all the changes it will experience during pregnancy. Classes will offer a total body interval workout including strength training, cardio and flexibility exercises. During the one hour class, exercises will be adjusted to accommodate participants’ various stages of pregnancy. Education from instructors on each phase will help participants understand the bodily changes taking place, how to best care for themselves and the preparation process for motherhood.
  • Body Back® - Body Back® will start fall 2013 and is a results-based workout designed for moms who want their body back, whether they just had a baby or their last child was born 20 years ago. Body Back® participants will experience targeted high-intensity workouts, inspiration and motivation in every class.
  • Plum Mom's Club powered by Fit4Mom Las Vegas - Each week Fit4Mom will host monthly play dates, Moms' nights out, and other activities for participating families. The events will enable moms to share advice, tips and have fun. In addition, Fit4Mom supports "Moms With a Mission," a program directed at helping better the community through organized activities focused on giving back to children, families and the environment.
