Happy Sunday everyone! If I’ve learned anything from working with mamas it’s that sometimes it’s harder than I should be to get connected in a fitness community before, during, and especially after baby! That’s why this week I sat down with the amazing mama Whitney Rahim, behind Baby Bootcamp Sugarland. Whitney has created this safe place for moms to feel connected in their journey of motherhood as well as fitness! Let’s dive in!
1. If you could describe Baby Bootcamp Sugar land in 3 words what would they be?
Community, fitness, motherhood
2. What can moms expect from your classes?
Our classes are a 60 minute full body workout. We often incorporate tubes, weights and other equipment, but sometimes just use body weight too! Our classes specialize in women’s fitness which means we help with core and pelvic floor recovery after pregnancy.
3. What do you feel is the most important part of community especially for new moms?
Becoming a new mom can be all of the sudden very isolating. Typically moms go from being very social to all of the sudden not sleeping and having a hard time leaving the house. It is often hard as a mom to find how you define yourself in this new role. We try to foster an environment where moms can come and get an awesome workout, but also socialize. Want to talk about sleep regressions while doing squats? We got you momma!
4. How would moms go about getting involved?
Moms with kids of all ages can come and join our classes. We meet at Lost Creek Park in Sugar Land, Monday – Saturday mornings at 9:30 am, and Monday, Wednesday nights at 6:15pm. Your first class is always free! We have regular play dates, moms night outs, field trips to fun places, crafts, and a wonderful online members community. We also have other franchises in the Houston area that are amazing.
5. Why is fitness for moms such a passion of yours?
I have been in the trenches of motherhood too. I have a four year old daughter and a 6 month old son. I know what it’s like to want to feel confident in your body again after having a baby. I love giving moms a safe and effective way to get that strength back. But, I also like helping moms redefine what they see fitness as. We encourage strength, meeting your personal goals, and overall wellness. Throw out the scale and pick up some weights!
We also address the community side of motherhood. I know what it’s like to be looking for mom friends. When I had my daughter I went from a 9-5 job, to being at home- with not many mom friends. It was HARD!
I want moms to come to class and find an inclusive community of lifelong friends. And this happens so often! One of my favorite parts is seeing moms hanging out outside of class time. I also want moms to be healthier and stronger than before! We really try to focus on the whole picture of wellness.
6. How did you get started?
I joined baby boot camp as a client when my daughter was born. I have always had a passion for fitness and became even more so after having a baby. When the opportunity came to take over Baby Boot Camp Sugar Land, I jumped at the opportunity to lead this amazing group of strong moms. The day I found out I was expecting my second child, was the day I took over ownership. I am right there with the other moms on their fitness journeys!
I just wanted to say a…
