You’re a mom first, fitness enthusiast second. But wouldn’t it be great if you could be both at the same time? That’s where gyms with child care come in. They allow you to have the best of both worlds — a killer workout for you, fun and games for them. So give the jogging stroller a rest and pack up the diaper bag.
Gyms with child care, like Flow Fitness’ Little Angels Club, are great for the whole family.
Here’re 4 reasons why you should join a gym with child care:
- Everyone gets some much-needed socialization. Motherhood can be isolating. If you’re looking forward to the FedEx guy ringing your doorbell so you can have some adult interaction, even if it’s “Hey, some weather we’re having,” then you know you need to get out more. Group fitness classes like the ones offered at Flow Fitness Boutique let you sweat and socialize. A bonus: Your kids get playtime with other kids, allowing them to work on their social skills too.
- It gives you flexibility. No more waiting around for the babysitter to get there or your partner to come home. You get to work out when it’s best for you and your children.
- You’re setting a good example. It’s one thing to talk to your kids about the benefits of being fit and active. It’s another to have them see you live it. Additionally, Flow Fitness offers Mom & Me classes, including Mom & Me Muay Thai and Mom & Me Trapeze Flow.
- You’ll become a better parent. It’s a known fact: Exercise releases stress, increases the feel-good chemicals in your brain and builds confidence — how could it not make you a better mom?
Flow Fitness Boutique offers free child care (called the Little Angels Club) for small and big kids. CPR- and first-aid-certified attendants will supervise your child(ren) in a safe and fun-filled playroom stocked with games, books and video games. And did we mention it’s free?
