How am I going to get there? Well, Dave and I have decided to start a Mommy and Me exercise program here in Denver. I've started designing my class with exercises that involve both the mother and the baby. For example, you lay the child down on the ground and do push-ups (on your knees or toes) down to meet the child's face. I've tried this with my 6 month old and my 2 year old and they both think it's a riot. Squats or lunges while holding either child is also fun for them. I'm also putting together a stroller workout for when the weather improves. There is a place up in Boulder that has a similar class but that's the only one I can find in our area. This will be a great way for women in our area to get together and meet other moms while doing something great for their body.
Here's where I need help...
- I need a catchy fun name. The name of the group in Boulder is Get Fit Mommy (http://www.getfitmommy.com/). Any ideas? We're thinking that we'll need a website name... mommyandmefitness.com?
- Music. I've been trying to work with some of Ally's kids music. She thinks it's great, but I'm not sure. There are some fun Disney songs... "I'm in love with a big blue frog" and some others that have a good beat for me to work with and they have fun words for the kids. I just don't know if this is lame... actually, it is lame but I don't know what else to do.
- How should I start? I've thought about doing a trial class with the girls in my ward and some from work and have them fill out questionnaires at the end to help before I start charging people for it.
This is so fun! Let me know what you think.
