Ontario, California (May 10, 2012) – Mountain Mama is proud to introduce Olympic cyclist Erinne Willock as their newest brand ambassador.After 15 years of competition, the accomplished Canadian is foregoing her 2012 race season and a return to the Olympics for a much grander opportunity – pregnancy.Her passion for leading a healthy life ties in directly with the message Mountain Mama strives to share with mothers everywhere.
If you asked this 30-year-old Victoria, B.C. native what she dreamt of a few months ago, the Olympics would have been the topic of conversation.Now, it’s all about baby.While Willock still strives to keep her body healthy, her focus has shifted from training for a race to preparing for birth.
“We are thrilled to have Erinne on our roster of athletic mamas,” says Teresa Delfin, founder/owner of Mountain Mama.“Our brand ambassadors help inspire other expecting women to stay active and strong. Pregnancy and childbirth are amazing physical achievements for any woman, and approaching it like an athlete keeps mama and baby healthy.”
