Owner/Instructor FIT4MOM Fairfield County
Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Body Back, Fit4Baby Certified Pre and Post-Natal Fitness Instructor.
While I was pregnant with my daughter I knew I wanted to stay active and healthy. I kept seeing FIT4MOM at my Midwives offices and when my daughter was just 6 weeks old I couldn't wait to try a class. I loved everything about FIT4MOM and how the Stroller Strides classes combined working out and being with my daughter! Stroller Strides had everything I was looking for as a new mom and a mom new to the area too. It was an opportunity to exercise, a reason to get out of the house everyday and have a routine again, fun playgroups and a way to make friends for myself and for my little one.
Stroller Strides Certified, ACE Certified Personal Trainer; M.S. in Applied Physiology and Nutrition; Registered Dietitian.
I’ve always been passionate about fitness and nutrition, and became certified in group exercise and personal training while in college, teaching a wide variety of classes from boot camp to spinning to Zumba and more. I am the Corporate Wellness Program Manager for Pitney Bowes.
While pregnant and wondering how I was going to keep teaching classes after having my son, I was thrilled to find Stroller Strides. I took my first class with Shanae- The workout was amazing, my son was happy, I met wonderful people…. I was hooked and I knew teaching Stroller Strides would be the perfect fit for me. I started teaching summer 2012 and I’m loving it! I get to motivate moms to achieve their fitness goals, and teaching class means spending MORE time with my baby, not less!
My goal is to help all moms feel comfortable and welcome, leave class feeling fantastic, unlock their fitness potential, and get the energy they need as moms and in life. Stroller Strides is the perfect blend of fun, fitness, camaraderie, and support and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!more
I’m a wife, mother to my beautiful daughter Giavanna, and a 5th grade teacher!
Staying fit has always been an important part of my life. As a student in both high school and college I was always involved in organized sports, Softball & Cheerleading! After having my daughter I was lost on how I was going to continue to stay fit without feeling guilty about being away from my daughter. When I found Stroller Strides I knew I found my answer. I found somewhere I could go to be with other Mom’s, workout and enjoy time with my daughter. Stroller Strides has helped me adjust to motherhood in so many ways, staying fit is only one part of what the classes have to offer. I am gratefully that even as a working mom I can find what I need each week to fulfill my needs. Being healthy and fit is especially important now with the emotional, physical, and mental demands of motherhood. I know I need to be healthy and fit to give my family all that they need from me.
During my classes I hope to challenge & motivate you, help to entertain your baby and inspire you to have fun! I want all Mom’s of all fitness levels to feel comfortable in my classes and to reach their goal individually. This is what Stroller Strides has given to me over the past several months, and I am so excited to be a part of the Fairfield County team!more
