Owner of FIT4MOM Ashburn
Certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Fit4Baby, and Body Back Instructor
I found FIT4MOM Ashburn when it began in January 2014, when my son was 11 months old, and I am SO grateful I did! Not only did I love being able to get a great workout at Stroller Strides classes, all while having my son with me, but I was able to meet other moms and get the support all moms NEED! I was very excited to become a certified Stroller Strides and Fit4Baby instructor in June 2014 because I wanted to inspire other moms and help them achieve their fitness goals! I wanted to continue reaching and inspiring more moms, so I became certified in Body Back and Stroller Barre.
When the opportunity to purchase FIT4MOM Ashburn arose, it was a no-brainer for me! I knew I wanted to continue to help give moms the strength for motherhood and provide the village that every mom should have! I am so thankful for my amazing team and Our Village!
I am the proud momma to a 3-year-old little man who keeps me on my toes. I started attending Stroller Strides classes at the end of the summer of 2015 and totally fell in love, not only with the workout, but also with everything else that comes with being a part of the Fit4Mom village. I really wish I had found Fit4Mom sooner.
After having my son, my old back problems had gotten worse and my go-to-exercise, running, was not helping. I really needed to start cross training (I hated cross training), but I wanted to find something that would allow me to bring my child. Once I found Fit4Mom Ashburn, I never looked back. Not only am I stronger than I have ever been, I’ve also gotten so much more from the Fit4Mom village.
Being a stay at home mom, I found it hard to leave the house if I didn’t have something going on. Having class to attend got me out of my rut and gave me a reason to get up and get out of the house. Not only has Fit4Mom Ashburn been beneficial to me, but it’s also been so great for my son. We did not have friends who were parents, so he didn’t have many opportunities to socialize with other children. Thanks to Fit4Mom Ashburn he now gets a play date everyday (and the bonus is he gets to burn off some energy after class too).
I love Fit4Mom and believe in it so much that I decided to become a certified Fit4Baby and Stroller Strides instructor in February 2016. I love being a part of such a wonderful community and I am so thankful to have found Fit4Mom Ashburn.more
I am the proud mama of a sweet girl, Samantha, who is 2, and a fur baby, Donald. Ever since I can remember I have wanted to help people and that is why I became of Doctor of Physical Therapy. For the last 5 years I have been working in a hospital with post-surgical geriatric patients as a Geriatric Board Certified Specialist; however, it became glaringly obvious that so much we deal with as we get older can be prevented with proper fitness and a healthy lifestyle. So I began to look into the wellness and prevention aspect of Physical Therapy. When I had my daughter, though, I found a perfect fit with Fit4Mom. We started going to classes once I was cleared by my OB, but didn't start coming regularly until my daughter was one. With ever class it was a win win for both if us: a community for both of us, a chance to connect and play, a chance for my daughter to see me being active and healthy (she's even pretending to do Stroller Strides now at home!). After two years of thinking about becoming an instructor I decided to go for it and it has been one of the best decisions I have made! I get to use my knowledge as a Physical Therapist, take a step into the realm of fitness and prevention, be a part of an amazing community full of beautiful mamas, all while showing my daughter hat it means to be strong and healthy! I can't wait to see where this journey takes us!more
I am the proud Mama to 4 year old Emma, 2 year old Robbie, and Baby Tommy. We have been taking Stroller Strides classes since May of 2014. I loved the classes and the Fit4Mom village so much I became a certified Fit4Baby and Stroller Strides instructor in September of 2015.
In my first weeks of being a full time Stay at Home Mom, I was struggling! We moved from out of state so I knew no one, didn’t know the area and was feeling pretty stressed. I started taking multiple stroller walks just to fill the day. Then one day we saw a gaggle of women run by our house with their strollers and out of desperation I yelled “who are you?!?!” and one of the moms yelled back “We’re Stroller Strides!". We went to class the next day and I was hooked! I found a group of incredible women - Moms - who always understood why I was late - didn’t care when my kids acted like kids - and were dedicated to being healthy! Stroller Strides gave me the foundation to start running, to work on my family’s overall health, and a vast network of moms to turn to for support. Initially, i signed up to get a good workout and fill our days with an activity. But I stuck with Stroller Strides because I not only saw real improvement to my health and fitness, but because I was part of a village that helped me be a better mom. (And the Moms’ Nights Out didn’t hurt either! )
I love teaching and working with moms to achieve fitness goals and to support moms in all that they do on a day to day basis. Celebrating successes with Our Village are some of my favorite moments each week! From new moms who make it through their first class - to moms completing their first race -to babies sleeping through the night for the first time - we get to share in it all! And that’s what I love most about Fit4Mom Ashburn!
