Those who know me know that I watch Carina during most days, rather than place her with a babysitter or in daycare. While I am blessed to have the ability to do so, I found myself using it as an excuse not to exercise.
After discussing the issue (i.e., complaining) with my mom, she found the perfect solution – Baby Boot Camp Katy!
Not only did I get a fantastic workout, I also connected with an amazing group of like-minded moms and dads.
The owner, Maria Gorosito, is knowledgeable and encouraging. She and the other trainers make sure that class is different each day, while suggesting modifications for each person’s ability level.
Baby Boot Camp is a one-hour interval training class that incorporates strength training, cardio, yoga, and core work.
Carina loves doing drills with me and enjoys being outside. I love that she is learning that it’s fun to be fit!
Baby Boot Camp provides an effective fitness regimen, a supportive environment, and a way to spend time with your kid(s).
Exercise modifications can be made for pregnant women, new moms, and active moms who are ready for an additional challenge.
This is a new twist in the world of fitness gyms. Located at 23222 Kingsland Blvd., Suite H, Katy, Texas 77494, (281)347-5050, the target customer is the fifty and over set.
As a member myself of that sub-group, I was very interested to learn about what they have to offer. With both an on-site physical therapist and a fitness coach, Nifty After Fifty offers, among other things, customized training, group exercise classes, a nutrition program, SCI-Fit Cardiovascular Steppers, and Keiser strength training equipment.
A great feature is that memberships are month to month and no contract is required. This program was founded by Sheldon S. Zinberg, M.D., a prominent and published expert on fitness and disease management of seniors.
According to the 2011 Texas County Health Rankings (m.countyhealthrankings.org/texas), Fort Bend County ranked #11 for “Health Outcomes” and #11 for “Health Factors.” Health Outcomes is based on health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and physical environment. Health Factors is based on mortality and morbidity. Anyone that is outside in the morning in Katy would be able to tell you that Katy is a healthy community!
With all of the cooking and baking that I’ve been doing, I have had to make a special effort to focus on fitness. The area pools are all opening soon and everyone wants to look their best. That doesn’t mean we have to slave over the machines at the gym (although some time on the elliptical never hurt anyone). There are lots of fun ways to stay fit! This week I am going to try to focus on activities that families can do to stay healthy this summer.
One of my favorites is doing workout videos at home, because Baby can play nearby and I can fit a few minutes into my busy schedule without leaving home. Right now, I’ve been loving The Dahm Triplets Workout: 3, 2, 1… Get Your Body Back. These ladies are Fit and Fabulous, and their DVD is on sale for only $9.99! There are three 10-minute workouts full of fun dance moves along with an ab workout. Baby sometimes puts down her toys just to watch me dance. Get your copy!
