Fit4Mom is Fit for Sag Harbor

Posted on 20 April 2014

Like many first-time mothers, Brooke Cracco fell instantly in love with her newborn twin sons, William and Dean. But her pregnancy and her sons’ premature entry into the world, had not been without their challenges.
While her children were healthy, Ms. Cracco found that motherhood was an isolating experience.
That was until one day, less than a year ago, when she bundled up the twins for a daily walk on a boardwalk in Sunken Meadow Park near her home in Northport.
“There was a mom instructing a group of 20 women, each with a stroller,” said Ms. Cracco. “And these girls were sweating and crunching and singing to their babies. I needed that. And so I took my first class.”
What Ms. Cracco didn’t know was in taking that first Stroller Strides and Fit4Mom class she was about to embark on a journey that would change the shape of not only her body, but also her professional career.
