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.
