Pop by Sweet Peas Clubhouse Sundays, Mix with Megan and Moms
Sweet Peas Clubhouse is back for a full season at Farmers Market Bay Meadows, thanks to Megan Mack and our friends at Fit4Mom San Mateo who’ve generously volunteered their time and talents to host the kids craft booth every Sunday from 9:30am to 1:30pm (May 5- Oct 27, 2019).
Are you looking for a fun way to be active and a part of your local mom community? With Fit4Mom San Mateo you can get a good workout in with your kids sitting in the stroller, plus make supportive local connections. Launched by Megan, FIT4MOM San Mateo has been in San Mateo since January of 2018 and currently has 31 members. Having grown up in Maine and living in both NY City and Boston, Megan moved to the Bay Area from New England in 2013. After deciding to stay home with her newly born daughter, life was a whole new world. When her daughter was just 4 months old she began looking to get out of the house and start working out again. That’s when she was introduced to Michelle Lewis of FIT4MOM SF Peninsula.
“I started as just a member of her franchise and quickly became one of their play group captains. As I continued with them I started managing their run club and playgroups and became a Stroller Strides instructor. When my family moved from Redwood City to San Mateo I saw that there was a need to bring FIT4MOM up the Peninsula to the moms here. FIT4MOM has been vital in helping me find what my new normal as a mom is. It has helped me find my new FIT.”
“When I started FIT4MOM San Mateo I was surprised at how many of my members had grown up in this area. It was the first time I found so many locals. As we have grown we have a bit more of a diverse membership with members coming from all parts of the world and the United States. We have a bit more diversity now including members from Canada and New Zealand.”
We’re excited to welcome you back to Sweet Peas Clubhouse weekly at Farmers Market Bay Meadows! What sorts of farm fresh themed crafts do you have up your sleeve this year?
“We are super excited to be back. Our members loved seeing us last year and we loved meeting everyone in the community. We have a really great craft planned by our Stroller Barre Instructor, Katie Lubkert, for Mother’s Day Hand Print Flowers. I also love all our themed holiday crafts. This year we our planning on making Firework Plates for the 4th of July Monster Book marks for going back to school.”
Any plans for a Pop-up class of Stroller Strides or Stroller Barre at the market or during the final hour of the market in a nearby park?
“We are working on getting in a few classes. We are planning a big anniversary party at Beresford Park on July 20th.”
Fit4Mom San Mateo currently holds all classes at Beresford Park. Stroller Strides is Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 9:30 and Stroller Barre is Tuesday and Fridays at 9:30, plus Strides 360 at 4:30. All classes meet at the covered picnic tables and move around the park from there. The most popular class is the Monday Stroller Strides class – a great way to kick off your week.
“We have an amazing Moms Night Out Coordinator, Karen Kvam, who has organized some great MNOs. Our most recent MNO was our favorite. We were lucky enough to enjoy a Chocolate Souffles class at a Pastry Chef’s House in Bay Meadows. We gathered at her house and enjoyed a cooking lesson, wine, and fresh bread made by Karen. It was filled with laughter, a break from mom and work life, good friends, and yummy chocolate.”
