Here at Oh Baby! Fitness, we’ve found that a great way for new moms to get back in shape after having a baby is by focusing on a goal, rather than a specific weight they want to be. Goals can range from training and running your first 5k, to being able to hold a plank or wall sit for two minutes, to fitting into a pre-pregnancy pair of jeans. We’ve found that while working towards these goals, our clients often shed the weight they want to lose, just as a simple side effect of working hard. To give our clients a leg up on achieving their goals, we’ve recently partnered with the Georgia Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society new program, “Moms in Training”.
What is Moms In Training?
Moms In Training is a flexible, 8-week training program for Atlanta moms to get in shape, meet other moms, and help fi ght blood cancers. Trainings take place for one hour every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. at Atlanta Memorial Park , with other social event opportunities during the week. The program culminates with optional participation in the Big Peach 5K Run/Walk for Blood Cancer on May 3. The race is stroller friendly!
Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. In 1964, the chance of surviving Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood leukemia, was 3%. Thanks to treatments advanced by LLS, children 15 years old and younger who are fighting ALL today have a 92% chance of survival. LLS and Moms in Training participants are saving lives, and all moms are invited to join the fight for a cure.
Can I bring my child to the trainings?
Yes! As long as your baby is able to remain in the stroller, you are welcome to bring him or her to the trainings. The workouts allow you to exercise with a stroller, but it is not neccessary. Some moms prefer to use the the hour-long trainings as “me” time!
What do trainings consist of?
Trainings will consist of running, walking, cross training, and stretching.
I’m not an athlete! Can I really do this?
Yes! Moms of all levels join the program. You will receive incredible coach support as well as a training calendar that you can follow on your own. The program is extremely flexible, and you are fully supported 100% of the way!
How much do I fundraise to participate?
Moms commit to raising $500 to help fight blood cancers.There is a $50 registration fee to join, which is credited toward your fundraising goal. Upon registering, you will receive your own fundraising website as well as fundraising support from LLS Staff. The average Moms In Training participant raises $1,500!
I know someone personally affected by cancer. Can I train in honor or memory of them?
Absolutely. We encourage you to honor someone you know who has been affected by ANY type of cancer.
