It can be hard for new moms to do anything for themselves, let alone work out. But Fit4Mom, which has classes from Southeast Portland and Clackamas to Beaverton and Lake Oswego, makes it easy for moms to get a total-body workout by including babies and kids in the workout sesh. And in between all the cardio and strength-training, classes give moms a chance to connect with other women who are also deep in the trenches of new motherhood.
