Introducing Our Instructor of the Month:
Teaches: Fit4Baby and sub for Stroller Strides
Hometown: Rockford, IL but I've been in Chicago for over 11 years :)
Mom to: Oliver, he's 8 months old
How did you first get introduced to Fit4Mom/Stroller Strides? My friend, Stephanie, did stroller strides with her girls and after Oliver was born, she encouraged me to attend!
What made you want to become an instructor? I love working out and it was important to me to stay healthy and strong even though I had a young baby. Finding Stroller Strides was so amazing for me and I wanted to share that passion with other moms. Learning about Fit4Baby was just icing on the cake!
What did you do before becoming an instructor? I was a preschool teacher :)
What is your favorite part of Instructing? I love when moms come up to me after class to let me know they enjoyed it! Makes me feel good to know that my excitement for exercising is being passed along to the mamas I teach!
Favorite exercise/song that you do? In Stroller Strides, my favorite thing is to circle moms up and shuffle around while singing Ring Around the Rosie. At the end, instead of 'we all fall down', we sing: 'we all do _____!' And each mama gets a turn to shout out an exercise. It's fun and engaging for moms and kids!
What is your favorite non-kid workout song that gets you moving? Club Can't Handle Me by Flo Rida. It makes me feel extra pumped and extra fly :)
