Hi I’m Melissa. I have a four year old boy and a 16 month old girl and live in Oak Park. I originally joined Stroller Strides when Landon (my son) was 9 months old. I was first attracted to Stroller Strides for it being a great way to get back in shape with your kids. I initially joined to lose the baby weight however what I ended up gaining were life-long friendships with the other moms. Through Stroller Strides I was able to achieve my goals losing 45 pounds through the daily classes, Lean Mommy and the support of the other moms. I can definitely say that Stroller Strides is more than a workout. Its an amazing part of my life.more
My name is Amy, and I am a mom to two amazing children, Elliot (5) and Olive (20 months), with a third baby on the way in May. I was born and raised in Southern California and love being able to raise my children here. I started Stroller Strides when my first born (Elliot) was 5 months old, and instantly fell in love! Stroller strides has given me an amazing opportunity to get into the best shape of my life, have fun with my children, and meet so many amazing moms and kiddos, all at the same time! With another baby on the way, I'm looking forward to many more exciting times and fun memories with Stroller Strides!more
I started Stroller Strides when my daughter was 9 weeks old and I couldn't fit into a single dress in my closet. Fast forward eight months and I feel strong, fit and confident.

More importantly, I've made friendships with amazing mamas and their babies and have so much fun and learn so much from them. I don't feel like my day is complete without going to Stroller Strides and I'm sad if I have to miss a day. Who would have thought that a workout could be the highlight of your day?
I went into my closet the other day to see what fit for an upcoming wedding, and to my surprise, every single dress fit perfectly. I wasn't spending hours a day in the gym and I wasn't on any crazy diet. I was doing exactly what I had done before with one change. Stroller Strides. It has made an incredible difference in my life, both physically and emotionally, with fitness that helps me to feel confident and happy and friendships that I know will last a...more
