Today we have an awesome guest post and KICKBOXING video from the one and only Allie of Vita Train 4 Life. Get to know all about her HERE. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge and love of sweat today Allie!
What does it mean to “Be Mom Strong?” I’m sure we all have different definitions but Emma and Caitlin are the embodiment of Strong Moms and they love to spread the sweat…err, um wealth! From playground fitness (wanna be a captain?) to running for Meg’s Miles (Emma is her cousin) these two ladies do it all, with toddlers in tow. In fact, Emma just announced she’s having baby number two! These ladies love to post great workout videos and asked me to play along. How could I refuse?
Before I was a mom, I was a personal trainer. I trained a lot of moms. I thought I understood them because I had young cousins or because some of my friends had kids but, of course, you have no clue what it means to be a mom until you become one! I also remember giving advice to guilt stricken moms who would drop their kids at daycare, work all day, and then put them in the gym daycare so they could get in a workout. “Don’t feel guilty!” I said. “You’re a better mom when you get some time to do something for yourself.” Did I mean what I said? Absolutely. Did I have any idea how hard it was for these moms? Not one bit.
Now I know. I know all to well how hard it is to train when you have newborn twins and then toddler twins. It’s hard. Period. But, the truth is I am a better mom when I workout. I do deserve time to take care of myself. So, what do I like to do for fun? Cardio Kickboxing! I’m happy to say I recovered the “lost” ten minutes of my video and I’m sharing it with all the Be Mom Strong ladies today. Stop over and give them some love, maybe join their free online gym and then get ready to sweat like only a mama with limited time can! Enjoy…
