September #MEETTHEMAMAS

Have ya met Cheyenne? This amazing Mama joined our Village at the beginning of 2020 and has stuck with us during this crazy pandemic. As soon as we were able to resume in-person classes, Cheyenne was ready to go! I don't think she has missed a single class. You can find Cheyenne at Stroller Strides with her beautiful baby girl Sky. Cheyenne's energy is contagious and we are so lucky to have her in our Village of Strong Mamas! Check out below to learn more about Cheyenne :)

Hometown: Simi Valley , Ca

Tell us about your family: My husband, Mike, and I have been together 6.5 years and married for 2! We have 1 beautiful baby girl, Skyler James, and she is 9 months old! We joke and call our family the “LeBard Zoo” because we have a horse, a giant golden retriever, and 2 cats who run the house and Skyler is obsessed with her fur siblings!

Current/ previous career: I am a hairstylist and full time mama! I’m really fortunate that I am able to make my own schedule and have the flexibility to be home with Skyler and also continue doing hair!

Childhood Ambition: To be a hairstylist! When I was a kid, I would play with my moms hair at night while she watched Lifetime Movies so I could stay up past my bedtime and I taught myself how to braid on my horses mane and tail!

Furthest you’ve been away from home: Ireland , Denmark, Costa Rica & Cabo!

How did you find Fit4Mom: my friend Jamie Siskin sent me the Instagram page and asked if I’d want to take a class once we were cleared to workout after having our babies and I’m not gonna lie, I was so intimidated and nervous to take a class but I’m forever thankful we did! (Thank you Jamie!!!!!)

How has fit4mom impacted your life:

Fit4Mom has impacted my life in such a deeper way than just getting fit. After having Skyler, I got post partum depression and I was so scared and embarrassed to admit what I was feeling . I’ve always wanted to be a mom, this is a dream come true... I was so confused how this could happen to me? I felt so alone until my first Fit4Mom class... I cried happy tears after the class because I was SO relieved. I found exactly what I needed .... A village of women who are strong, supportive, non judgemental and SO understanding! I joined when Skyler was 7 weeks old (now 9 months) and I am forever thankful I joined Stroller Strides so early in my post partum journey because these workouts and the fit4mom mamas have truly helped me through the hardest day !

Favorite exercise: SQUATS!

Proudest moment:My proudest moment was the moment my daughter took her first breath as she came into the world and I knew I did it! When I was 35 weeks pregnant I told my OB that I could NOT push a baby out of me. LOL. I was so terrified of the unknown... but I did it and I am so proud ! Women are so strong!

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us: I’m a crazy garden lady . I started my first quarantine veggie garden and I actually surprised myself because my garden is thriving and normally I can’t keep any plants alive.
