Mothers of babies and toddlers can enjoy free trainer-led workouts at The Shoppes at EastChase beginning Aug. 17.
Ashley Vipond, a local trainer who specializes in post-partum fitness, will lead the one-hour gatherings, which are a first for EastChase.
“This is a different class that reaches a select group of women. This class is an excellent opportunity for new moms, and moms of toddlers, to get out and meet new friends all while focusing on their health and helping to shed a little pregnancy weight,” said Suzanna Wasserman, marketing director for EastChase. “We really like trainer Ashley’s mission, and are looking forward to adding this new fitness opportunity.”
The classes start at 10 a.m. each Saturday and continue through October. The fun will take place on The Green, adjacent to Pies & Pints.
“The Simply Fit Stroller Classes are dynamic, total-body conditioning workouts designed for moms with children,” Wasserman said.
She said that the 60-minute workouts will include strength training, cardio, and core exercises.
“Children will love the music and movement,” Wasserman said, adding that moms will finish classes energized. “The class is child friendly, and mothers will be able to work out in an environment where others can relate to your experiences, and cheer you on as you get fit, and make your health a priority. This is a no judgement zone, so feel free to breathe easy during your class time.”
Single and double strollers, as well as body carriers all fit in with the class. Any type of athletic wear and comfortable tennis shoes are recommended. No other equipment is needed.
“There will be pop and fun music to keep the beat,” Wasserman said. “No weights are needed. This workout typically involves body weight and HIIT (high intensity interval training) style to get the heart moving.”
Wasserman said the classes are part of EastChase’s continuing effort to be much more than just a retail destination.
“Fitness and health are important to us and our shoppers love our fitness opportunities,” she said. “We are lucky to have such a nice outdoor location to offer this class. We’ve done a lot of polls from our followers and they constantly request new fitness classes. The Shoppes at EastChase prides itself with not only being a shopping center, but a community center for Montgomery residents to come together and experience life.”
In addition to the Simply Fit Stroller class, EastChase is offering free yoga every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. in the same location.
