Can you believe that it’s already the end of April!? Have you stuck to all those health-related New Year’s resolutions? Our goal this winter was to get fit and healthy. Our 2017 Get Fit fitness event series gave YOU, our readers, the opportunity to explore the fantastic fitness, health and wellness providers throughout Fairfield County. We tried everything from CrossFit to Barre and everything in between. Thank you to everyone who came out and joined us for this series and to all our participating sponsors. It was so fun to get to meet so many new local moms while getting fit in Fairfield County!
Get Fit with SOSF CrossFit & Chiropractic
This was the perfect event to kickoff our Get Fit series since it was a full team building workout. At SOSF CrossFit & Chiropractic we started the night off with some stretching, learned the perfect technique for push-ups and squats, and then had a friendly competition that made for a great workout. Following the class we enjoyed a delicious snack and their “paleoish” margaritas. Owner, Chris, explained to us that moms come to SOSF to get better. Better treatment, better community, better feeling, better motivation and better education. Don’t forget, FCMB readers will receive 15% discount off membership for the life of their membership.
Get Fit with The Training Floor – Spin Class
What an intense workout! Thanks to our extremely motivating instructor at The Training Floor we were able to keep pumping those legs through tough hills, jumps and sprints. The fantastic upbeat playlist of today’s best hits helped us all to keep going! After we wiped off all the sweat we enjoyed chocolate protein bars and fruit. Our thirst was quenched by the coldest of water in our very own Training Floor water bottles. If you would still like to try them out FCMB readers will receive a special discounted monthly membership for $129 per month OR 5 anytime classes for $79.99.
Get Fit with The Training Floor – Bootcamp
We loved The Training Floor so much we went back for more! This 45 minute Boot Camp was a challenging total-body workout. Squats, push-ups, ropes, weights, you name it we did it. We were able to modify each exercise to meet our various ability levels. The trainers were serious about teaching us to walk before they asked us to run. Again the class was followed by some healthy snacks and lots of laughs with new mom friends. In addition to their discounted rates they are also offering a special Spring in 2 Shape promotion.
Get Fit with Go Figure Barre Studio
We had such a fun night out at the barre with Go Figure Barre Studios in New Canaan. Long slow stretching makes for a pretty intense full body workout. This method mixes intense muscle training with elongated stretch phases which results in a long, lean physique with gorgeous tone. So when our bodies were shaking our lovely instructor kept encouraging us with what our summer bodies would be like if we powered through the burn. This workout was a balance of intensity and we can see why many mamas say it’s completely addicting. At the end of class we were rewarded with wine and sparkling water! Want to try it out for yourself? Mention FCMB and you will receive 20% off any class package (excluding memberships).
Get Fit with Countdown Fitness
Countdown Fitness gave us one of the most intense workouts. They put planking to a whole new level! Using super slow movements we understand why this session is only 30 minutes. Each exercise was slow and challenging, but we can see that after a few sessions you will be feeling stronger than ever! Luckily we had great motivation to finish since The Gourmet Cocina was there with delicious (and healthy) crab cakes, mushroom polenta, and a refreshing mint lemonade! And of course an exclusive discount at lululemon athletica Greenwich topped off the night! Feel like you missed out? Make sure to contact owner and trainer, Anel, to sign up for a free consultation and sample workout.
Get Fit with Fit4Mom
Using your kids as an excuse for not working out? Just bring them along with with Fit4Mom. There are three different groups that meet throughout Fairfield County. Stroller Strides is one type of class that is offered at our local malls. It is a total fitness program that includes power walking and intervals of strength and body toning exercises using exercise tubing, the stroller and the environment. Stroller Strides instructors weaved songs and activities into the perfect routine entertaining and engaging every child. All while moms worked hard and built up a sweat! The best part about these classes were the play groups after where moms and kiddos got to play and hang out. The workout was fantastic, but the friendships made were even better. Don’t wait any longer to try out your one week free to Stroller Strides, Fit4Baby or BodyBack. Just tell them your friends at Fairfield County Moms Blog sent you!

Get Fit with Green & Tonic Westport
Thank you to nutritionist Jessica Moon and Green & Tonic of Westport for hosting us for this fun family play date. Jessica shared useful information about the food we choose to feed our families. She covered everything from tips for teaching the kiddos to learn healthy eating habits and the best foods and drinks to help maintain energy levels. The food and drink samples were also a big hit….even with the littles! We tasted spicy avocado wraps, sunflower seed tuna wraps, fruit oat bars, coconut chai bars, anytime cookies, super-food smoothies, and more! The best part about it was the little ones were eating the healthiest of snacks without even realizing it!
A HUGE thanks to ALL who participated in our FC Moms Get Fit series! We hope to see you all soon staying fit around Fairfield County!
