Meet one of our dedicated mamas, Xiaoxi! A former teacher, she enjoys Stroller Strides and Boost classes with us! Happy Mother's Day to you and to all mamas in Our Village!
Where are you originally from?
A little city called Zibo in China.
When did you join FIT4MOM?
What classes do you attend?
All sorts. I regularly go to the HIIT Boost classes in Redmond on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the Bothell class on Saturday. I also enjoy Stroller Strides classes and the Strides 360 classes!
Who is/are your workout buddy(ies) and their age(s)?
Theodore, who turned 2 in March.
What is your favorite thing about FIT4MOM?
I get to be with ladies who are walking the same walk. Sometimes when you are exhausted it's a relief to hear that you are not alone!
What is your current job? Or what did you do before staying at home (if you don’t currently work outside the home)?
I'm at home with Theodore now, prior to that I was a special education teacher.
Share your thoughts on the concept of “it takes a village” – is it important for moms to join a village?
It is so important to find a village for moms. It's different for everybody but the village is where I find my support and others to share my thoughts with.
What is your favorite beverage?
Berry hibiscus refresher
What is your favorite dessert?
This is a tough one because I don't like sweets. Maybe dark chocolate ice-cream? However, I cannot resist warm fresh bread... Yummm. ;)
You are given 4 hours of FREE babysitting. What would you do?
Go take a dance lesson
What is your ultimate child-free vacation destination?
Six flags, my husband and I love roller-coasters and according to his brother the best roller-coasters are at the Six Flags Magic Mountain, and we haven't been yet!
How has becoming a mother changed you?
I didn't know that I could do so much and so little. Having a little life is the most adventurous ride, and it never ceases to surprise me. My life is no longer just about me, it has become so much more.
I am happiest when...
After a long day, lay down in my bed and fall asleep peacefully. =P
