Fit4Mom: we try a free community pre-natal workout class


It’s a workout for moms to help get them ready for every aspect of motherhood. A free community pre-natal class takes place every Monday at the Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church.

"Ladies, it's like you're unloading groceries from the car or a baby. Your arms are full and you push that door closed with your rear,” said Susan Robinson, owner of Fit4Mom who is teaching the class. "Everything about motherhood pulls us forward, we want to combat that starting right now."

Robinson puts on this free workout class for expecting mothers.

"There's no reason why you can't still be active throughout your entire pregnancy as long as it's a healthy pregnancy and there are no complications,” Robinson said.

Some in the class had to wait for sickness and extreme fatigue to subside before being able to workout during pregnancy.

"The average is probably 10 to 11 weeks, then we keep moms in the class all the way until they deliver. They want to be here and get the most out of everything they can so when they go in for that delivery they're strong and they feel confident. That's a really big piece of it,” Robinson said.

One of those first time, expecting moms, Devan Elbert says becoming a strong first time mom is exactly what brought her here.

"I want to make sure I’m staying active when I’m pregnant and then I really want to work toward having a strong delivery and also having a good recovery and this solves all three of those issues,” Elbert said. "I've learned I can actually workout while I'm pregnant, because I did not feel like I could make it through the first class. But then I was like, 'Oh yeah, you can do this.' I always look forward to when she says it's the last rotation. It's my favorite part."
