Owner | Instructor
I am a stay at home mom to three children, Kai (3), Abby (1), and Lilly (1). Fitness has been an interest and passion of mine since I was young. I have always loved running and working out and doing it with friends. In 2012 I completed the Crossfit level 1 certification. This only further inspired me to research and learn more about fitness. After I became pregnant with my first child, I was inspired to stay fit through pregnancy and be able to have the healthiest pregnancy and baby possible. Soon after the birth of my first, I became pregnant with what I thought was my second child...soon to find out I was actually carrying my second & third children - twins!

Who knew how hard it was to find the energy to pack up all the diaper bag, burp cloths, nursing cover, extra clothes, toys...just to walk out the door to have a diaper that exploded into the car seat. Who could sympathize with me that breastfeeding is amazing, and yet, part of me wanted my body to belong only to me again! When I learned of Fit4Mom, I knew I had found that community - that support system that welcomed me as a mom, with all the emotions that comes with motherhood!
My hope is that any mom in our area can find value in joining Fit4Mom - whether it's through...more
