Melissa discovered Fit4Mom in July 2014 when her daughter was 11 months old. As a stay-at-home mom and freelance writer, she was looking for a way to fit exercise into her life and connect with other moms. After her first Stroller Barre class at Diversey Harbor, she joined as a member and has been actively involved with Fit4Mom ever since. Melissa and her family moved to the northwest suburbs in July 2015 and welcomed a son that October. When the Vernon Hills Stroller Strides location opened in March 2016, she was one of its first members, and that fall, she signed up for Body Back in Arlington Heights. After a couple of sessions, Melissa took her love of Fit4Mom to the next level by becoming a certified Body Back instructor. She also loves reading, baking, yoga, coffee and spending time with friends and family. Melissa is excited to share the amazing benefits of Body Back and the incredible community of Fit4Mom with more moms!
