Katy, TX (September 17, 2013) – National stroller fitness program Baby Boot Camp awarded its prestigious 2013 Owner of the Year to Maria Gorosito of Baby Boot Camp in Katy, Texas, at its annual conference in Sarasota, Fla., on Sept. 13.
Available in over 500 locations across the United States, Baby Boot Camp offers innovative fitness and nutrition programs designed specifically to help moms get fit in the years following childbirth.
Parents incorporate their children and stroller as an integral part of the small-group training classes. Weekly play dates and monthly moms’ night out events provide additional social support for new moms.
Gorosito is an owner and instructor for her franchise. Baby Boot Camp client Tricia Richardel of Katy, Texas, nominated Gorosito for leading her to discover her “inner athlete.”
“When I joined Baby Boot Camp, I was a depressed, overweight, out of shape and newly stay-at-home mom,” Richardel said. “Maria gave me an outlet for all that pent-up stress and anxiety. She motivated me to change my lifestyle of sedentary misery to a healthy, active one. With her help and encouragement, I not only lost over 35 pounds and two dress sizes, but I completed my first half-marathon!”
As part of her prize package, Gorosito received a Mountain Buggy terrain stroller. Eighty-five Baby Boot Camp and Karna Fitness owners and instructors represented locations worldwide at the 2013 Annual Conference, where attendees enjoyed a semi-formal three course meal using local, sustainable ingredients and organic wine provided by CalNaturale.
