Category: Newspaper

Mandi Hebert started her business, Baby Boot Camp Lafayette about three years ago so she would be more active after giving birth. Hebert never expected the business to affect new mothers the way it has.

She said she was just trying to lose some of the weight she gained after having her third child, Gabriella, and suffering from postpartum depression. Hebert, 32, heard about the success of Baby Boot Camp in her hometown of Baton Rouge and decided to bring the program to Lafayette.The stroller fitness program allows moms to exercise while spending time with their children.

“It took awhile for people to understand what it was,” said Hebert, who went from having one mom in her program to having about two dozen. She said this is not just “a walking group” but a 60-minute session that includes cardio to work every major muscle group in the body. “When they come, they’re surprised at how much exercise we do,” Hebert said.

Houston Moms Blog: Working out with your kids at Baby Boot Camp 

Category: Blog

 " I seriously love every thing about Baby Boot Camp, but my most favorite thing of all is that is so much more than just a fitness program.  It is truly it's own little community of moms.  These mamas laugh together, sweat together, and even cry together too.  They hold bunco parties at one another's houses and set up meal deliveries after babies are born.  I suppose there is something about doing a burpee next to someone that helps build a friendship, and at one point in the class, another mom and I had probably done a set of 50 bicep curls because we just got so carried away chatting about life."
