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 of an adorable little man Lukas, who is 2 years old and we are expecting another little man in March of 2018.
I first attended a Stroller Strides class in my hometown of Houston, Texas in October of 2016 when my son was 11 months old. I remember kicking myself thinking "why didn't I join sooner!" We relocated to Ashburn three months later and as a stay-at-home mom in a new area I was desperate to get out of the house. I immediately looked up FIT4MOM. My first class was in January of 2017 and the night before I received a text from instructor Eliza saying she looked forward to meeting me and my little one. That text alone made me feel so welcome. I remember telling my husband that night "look! I got a text!" I felt so far away from home, family and friends and as soon as I introduced myself I felt I was a part of a community.
At first attending Stroller Strides was just a way for my son and I to get out in the morning, but quickly I started making "mom friends." My husband could always tell by my mood if I went to class that day and it gave me another way to interact with my son. I love that he can watch mommy get strong and that exercise isn't a have to, but a want to. My son also made play buddies and loved the crafts and play dates after classes. The connection I searched for I had found.
I cherish FIT4MOM and the connections I have made and wanted to be involved in someway. I became a stroller strides instructor in August of 2017. As a former elementary school teacher I love that I can combine workouts with songs and activities for the kiddos. I don't know how many times I get asked "Wait! You workout with the baby in the stroller?" and the answer is "Yup! We sure do!" I am beyond happy to be apart of this amazing village of strong mamas!!!
