MOMS NEED EXERCISE!
The benefits go way beyond the important physical perks we get from moving our bodies...
our Walk 15 Instructor Laura Liechti knows that from personal experience:
"This program has improved my life ten fold not only as a Walk15 instructor but as a good representative of what walking can do for your heath. My son Darryl (32) and I do 5, 8, 10K's and more together. He runs... I competitively Walk.
As a grandmother I know that I am setting a great example of what regular physical exercise can do for you!!!
My granddaughters 4 and 2 know me as "Fast Walker Grandma"!!!
I've been a walker all my life...and now, at 56, I'm even better than before! The example I set for my children, grandchildren and class participants is a valuable learning tool for all. Let's GO!!! I have another 5K tomorrow.
I must add that I usually win- WE are strong!!!"
OK...Fast Walker Grandma! LOVE that story!
Laura gets it! She's living a happier, healthier life with her family by choosing to make HER health a priority!
Too many times, moms don't do that...we put our own wellbeing on the back burner while we take care of everyone else... At Walk 15, we want moms to celebrate Mother's Day by taking care of THEMSELVES.
Exercise is a perfect way to do that, for many reasons...here's a short (but powerful) list:
"I started doing the Walk program when my kids were three and seven. They are now 14 and almost 18. I found that taking care of myself gave me much more energy to devote to them and keep up with them! When they were little, they used to do the DVDs with me as well. So fun! As a Walk Leader, I love that this is exercise for all ages. I have three mother-daughter groups who come to class on a regular basis and also my 17-year-old graces us with her presence from time to time! We can all be healthy and have a great time doing this program!"
"I love that I am 'leading by example'!! When I first started leading classes, I had to take my son with me. He got to see firsthand his Mom leading a group of women and doing something healthy for me and them. Now he goes with me to class often because he enjoys being there! Also, since he has become a teenager, I am a better Mom to him because WALKing our way helps reduce my stress and gives me the patience to handle teenager angst! :)"
"Back when I started my journey to better health and weight loss it was because I wanted to be here for my kids and future grandkids. That was almost 9 years ago. Now I am still here leading classes and I now have a 3 and 2 yr old grand daughters :)"
Here's to you beautiful moms this Mother's Day month!
