Encore Episode: The Empowered Mama
Moms, you probably feel exhausted. You take the reins of your family’s health. This means you need to take care of yourself so you can run a household.

If you plan to become pregnant, get yourself in optimal health beforehand. Today’s nutrition and fitness habits enable you to be a happier, healthier caregiver when baby comes.

Caring for yourself during pregnancy helps you grow a strong baby. You can start exercising with your doctor’s permission at any phase of your pregnancy. Take baby steps to reduce stress, improve your eating habits and exercise.

Pregnancy changes your body so much in a short amount of time. Assess where you are right now. Find a few things that you can start to improve right now. Work to be better at those things by one percent each week. 

Motherhood is a gift. Healthy choices now will help you instill a healthy lifestyle in your children.

Listen as Lisa Druxman joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to share how to be the best mom by taking care of yourself first.

Lisa Druxman, Fitness Entrepreneur & Author
Lisa DruxmanIn 2001, Lisa Druxman became a mom and an entrepreneur. She was looking for a way to blend her passion for fitness with motherhood. “I decided to create a workout that I could do with my baby,” she recalls. “I didn’t want to miss a moment of his new life but also knew that I needed to take care of myself.”

It was one beauty of a brainstorm. Lisa created an exercise routine for new moms and realized that other mothers would benefit from working together to restore their well-being.

Now, she leads a business that brings exercise, companionship and support to tens of thousands of moms around the country with more than 1,500 instructors and 300 franchisees. Stroller Strides grew over the years and added Fit4Baby (prenatal classes) and Body Back (classes for any stage of motherhood). All of the classes now make up the FIT4MOM brand.
