HMAA partners with FIT4MOM to help moms stay fit
Sponsored by HMAA
FIT4MOM Windward Kailua has partnered with HMAA’s Member Plus Discount Program to provide members with special offers on pre and postnatal health, wellness, and fitness programs for every stage of motherhood.
Physical activity during pregnancy is associated with significant health benefits for mom and baby. For mom, it may help prevent or treat gestational diabetes, reduces back aches and pains, improves posture and core stability and helps her prepare for labor and delivery. Exercise isn’t just good for mom — prenatal exercise is truly a connection to baby. Baby may benefit from a decreased chance of diabetes, increased brain health, lower BMI and a fitter heart.
“It’s my goal to build connections in class and help moms realize the gift they give their babies when they take care of themselves,” says Becky Zienkiewicz, owner and instructor at FIT4MOM Windward Kailua.
FIT4BABY is designed specifically for moms-to-be. F4BB is about coming together with other pregnant mamas in their journey of fitness, fellowship and fun. Classes are geared to help alleviate the discomforts of pregnancy, to give a mom more energy, to prepare her for labor and delivery as well as postpartum recovery and for her new role as mom. You can begin FIT4BABY® at any point during pregnancy. All trimesters are welcome with the approval of your doctor or midwife.
FIT4MOM offers a variety of exercise programs post-pregnancy, including Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, and Body Back programs.
“Our community is our village, and our village supports all moms in all stages of motherhood,” Zienkiewicz says. “Each month, additional activities are scheduled in the Kailua area. We offer weekly playgroups, family events, and charitable events. We love to give back to our community!”
