Umstead Hotel and Spa Raleigh

Our Favorite Spas Within 1-Hour of Raleigh

One of the most common questions asked at our FIT4MOM classes is “what do you do for self-care?” We believe with all our heart that if you’re going to be a good parent, you need to take care of yourself first. For me, self-care looks like exercise, iced coffee, and a good book to recharge. That being said, who doesn’t love a good spa day? So the next time your partner asks for gift suggestions, send them this not too subtle hint that some self-care would not only be nice, but necessary.
