Mommy meet-ups have become increasingly popular over the years. Through social media and websites that tailor to your specific interests, parents who used to be perfect strangers, are becoming fast friends.
Today in St. Louis’ Allie Corey met up with a group of moms working out in Forest Park. They're part of the St. Louis based Fit 4 Mom meet-up group.
Dr. Kristin Milonas runs STL’s Fit 4 Mom group and has a young daughter.
"It's mommy camaraderie. It's getting you out of the house. It's getting your kids interacting. I think parenting can be pretty isolating and Fit 4 Mom gets you out the house to interact with other parents and realize you’re not the only one doing this stuff," she explained.
This was Kelsey Randall’s first class. Her second baby.
"I haven't exercised in two children. So, I decided it was time to do something. I’m not having anymore, so it’s time to do something good for myself," Randall said.
Fit 4 Mom also does outings and other fun activities for the family.
If a workout group isn’t for you. No worries. There are so many different groups out there, you're bound to find one that works for you. For example, the website meetup.com makes it easy to find your niche. Just search your location and the group your looking to join.
