Stella is two months pregnant and already has a busy life juggling her fulltime job and taking care of her 5-year-old kid. She wants to put more focus on maintaining her mental and physical health and she finds out about Health Mate through her practitioner. Stella wants to find quick workouts to go with her busy schedule, and loves learning more about eating healthy and wellbeing. She hopes to get her parents who are 60+ involve in a fitness regime through challenges, also, she hopes to meet more fitness moms in the community to learn and workout.

expectations

Stella would like to learn more about fitness, more specifically, fitness for pregnant mothers. She hopes that if she sticks with the given workouts from Health Mate consistently she will form a habit of working out daily, and as a result help boost her mood and live a healthy life. Stella wants to set a good example for her family and friends and encourage them to live a healthier life as well.
