Fitness Friday: Featured Fit Mom (October)

I love Baby Boot Camp because is it is a great place to socialize and meet other fitness-minded moms. I can’t believe it took me 11 months after my daughter was born to discover a class like this existed. There are moms and moms-to-be who attend class, and they are all inspirational. Just getting out the door with the baby is a feat in itself. To do so with the intention to workout is even more so. This month, meet FrankieWestside Mommy and Baby Boot Camp Los Angeles – Culver City and Marina Del Rey‘s Featured Fit Mom.

How old is your baby and how old was he when you started Baby Boot Camp (Los Angeles – Culver City and Marina Del Rey)?

Oliver is 5 months and we started boot camp when he was 2 months.

How active were you before pregnancy and how does that compare to now working out with Baby Boot Camp (Los Angeles – Culver City and Marina Del Rey)?

Before pregnancy I was fairly active, I walked, ran and did yoga. Baby Boot Camp is a different type of workout because it combines both cardio and strength training into one, as well as having two instructors that offer one on one guidance. 

What is your favorite thing about Baby Boot Camp (Los Angeles – Culver City and Marina Del Rey)?

My favorite thing about Baby Boot Camp are the workouts and seeing the results. I also love Elizabeth and Melinda and the other moms. All have been a great support for a first time mom like me.  

One of the most interesting things I learned about you is you served in the Israeli Army. Can you tell me in a few sentences about the physical demands of that? 

Sure. Last time I was in boot camp was during that time! The physical demands varied depending on the time of my service. During boot camp I was challenged, both physically and mentally. After boot camp I continued to workout independently and participate in various physical challenges, including a personal trainer course and training challenges with my unit. 

Meet Frankie, Elizabeth, Melinda, and other amazing moms in class at Baby Boot Camp! Classes at Helms Bakery and Playa Vista.
