We are so excited to announce our MOM (Motivating Mom of the Month) for June! Each month we will take a moment to honor one of our local FIT4MOM Montgomery County Moms for her efforts to lead a healthy lifestyle and for her dedication to the program. This month we honor Susan Dutra!
“Susan is such a committed member! She isn't super close to any location but that doesn't hinder her in the least! She has done it all- Strides, Body Back, Run Club! And it's a family affair for her too as her adult daughter and husband also come to class!” ~Instructor Claire
“I wouldn't be surprised if Susan went from Stroller Strides straight to the hospital to deliver her new bundle of joy, that is how dedicated she is. Susan is always in class ready to work hard with a smile on her face! Her hard work is inspiring to all moms and moms to be.” ~ Instructor Katie
“Susan is always smiling, adding lots of positive energy to the class! I always enjoy chatting with her after class!- Instructor Ewa
We asked Susan a few questions so we can all get to know her better, and here is what she had to say:
1. Who are the members of your family?
The members of my family are, my husband Drew, our son Wade (3 years old), daughter Scarlet (due this month), my daughter Jazmine (26, lives in San Diego) and my son Solomon (23, lives in San Francisco).
2. What is/was your career?
I am a Registered Administrative Assistant for a Financial Service Company.
3. When was your first class, and what do you remember about it?
My first class was in April of 2015. I remember being impressed with how fit everyone was and how I couldn’t wait to build up my endurance.
4. Where can we find you? What is your Fit4Mom routine these days?
I can be found at most Saturday family classes at The Rio. Depending on my work schedule I can also be found at the Clarksburg Outlets on Mondays and The Rio on Wednesdays.
5. What is your favorite strides exercise?
My favorite strides exercise is the wall sit.
6. What has being a mom taught you?
Being a mom has taught me what unconditional love truly is. I have learned to let a lot of things go and to enjoy the moment, time goes by so fast.
7. List 3 of your favorite things.
Three of my favorite things are:
1. Having all of my children together with me at the same time.
2. Working out with my husband.
3. Being at the beach.
8. Give us a giggle- What is your funniest or most embarrassing mommy moment so far?
My most embarrassing mommy moment came when I was still pregnant with my first child. I thought my water broke in the middle of the night only to realize that I peed the bed.
9. Any advice for other moms out there?
Remember your kids are watching and listening. Be the best you possible.
10. What would you tell someone who is considering attending their first Fit4Mom MoCo class?
You won’t regret it. Chances are you will love it!
Thank you, Susan, for being such a valuable part of Our Village here at FIT4MOM Montgomery County! We truly appreciate you & the positive energy you bring to class and Our Village!
Check back to see who our MOM will be in July!
