Mommas Marrying Their Talents – Cutting Edge Fitness Meets Educational Childcare
Shelby Mirrotto and Tracy Cecola met at a Stroller Strides class in 2006, after the births of their daughters. As moms who care about staying active and healthy, it was a low blow when Shelby and Tracy’s children grew out of the stroller and power-walks, runs and Stroller Strides classes were no longer an option. The “big box” gyms offered child care, but to the two devoted mommas, cleanliness and quality of care seemed insufficient.
Noticing that no gyms offered educational childcare, the driven duo decided to create a comfortable, positive environment for families to foster better health. With Shelby’s 20 years of teaching kick boxing, yoga, and everything between, under her belt, melded with Tracy’s 15 years as an elementary school teacher, the two brought a viable solution to families in Huntington Beach facing similar obstacles in 2010 with Move it Momma Fitness.
