Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located?
Currently I offer personal training at Legacy Fitness in Kenosha, WI. I offer group classes at Legacy fitness and outdoors as it gets nicer out. Every time you go to book a specific class it should give you the location of that specific class.
How many kids can I bring?
All of your children! I only ask that if you have more than 3 kids you plan to bring to a class just send me a quick message so I can plan ahead for space.
What do I do if I'm running late?
We call that mom time! I have two myself so I understand how hard it can be to get out of the house and be somewhere right on time. This is why I typically start classes 5-10 after class start time. If you are running late and we already started just jump right in when you get there.
Can I bring my child/ren to the moms' night out event?
No. The moms' night out events are meant to be an adult only event where we as moms can take a break and get to talk to other moms without interruption or worries about little ears.
Do I need to register for a class ahead of time?
Yes. I only take so many people in a class so I can help individuals if needed and will not be able to take more once the class is full. If it is within an hour of the class you can always message to see if you can join the class.
Does my child need to participate?
Absolutely not! This workout is for you and while we work really hard on incorporating the little ones and making it fun for them, sometimes the kids just want to play and do their own thing, which is ok! They are still getting some awesome benefits from just being in the same room.
Do I need to be newly postpartum or have a baby to join FitFam classes or events?
Nope. It doesn't matter if you have been a mom for 10 weeks or 10 years, you are more than welcome!
Is FitFam Kenosha a franchise?
Nope! I'm a local mom who saw a need and wanted to fill it the best way she could. Every class is programmed by me. I'm a certified personal trainer specializing in prenatal and postpartum exercise. I hope to be able to help get moms moving to help with both physical and mental health complications postpartum.
Do I have to run in StrollerBurn
Absolutely not! Classes are designed that you can do a faster paced walk and be able to keep up (runs are only 30 seconds - 1 minute). You know your body and where you are in your fitness journey and I will never make you do anything you are uncomfortable with.
Helpful Tips For Classes
WATER. WATER. WATER. It is super important to drink plenty of water when you are exercising, especially if you are breastfeeding.
Have fun! Make noises, faces, and just be plain weird. Kids love you and they have fun and learn when you are having fun. You can set the example that exercise can be enjoyable.
Never wait until you have a perfectly happy child to come to class. The great thing about FitFam, it is a group of parents. Everyone understands that kids are not happy 100% of the time. If your child throws a fit, falls asleep, or is happy as can be, you are still teaching them health is important!
Always bring a toy or two. Sometimes they just need a little distraction and piece of home.
Try to feed them a little bit before class. If you need to feed them during class no worries! No matter if you are breastfeeding or bottle feeding, I will have exercises you can do while baby is eating if you want to keep working out.
If you are attending StrollerBurn you need a stroller. It does not have to be a jogging stroller but it is preferred if you decide to run.
If at any point need to slow down please do! I give many modifications to make it easier or harder as we go along so please do what you feels is right for you. If you ever need a different modification please let us know.
If you are ever in pain, STOP! Let me know if something is painful so I can work with you to have it not be a painful experience.
It is not a race. When exercising, form is more important than how many you do. Focus on doing the exercise correctly and as you get better the amount will increase naturally.
Love yourself! We are all on this parenthood journey together and we are all trying to be the best we can for our children. FitFam wants to be able to help take the burden of choosing getting the exercise you need and spending time with your family. Added bonus is your children will see first hand how exercise can be a fun activity!
