Owner of FIT4MOM SF Valley & NE LA. Certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Body Back, Run Club & Fit4Baby Instructor.
Shortly after the birth of my son, Jack in 2009 I became a FIT4MOM member and attended Stroller Strides classes regularly. After a little hiatus from classes, I returned with my 1 year old daughter, Stella. My experience with Stroller Strides inspired me, motivated me and gave me the opportunity to make some enduring friendships. Getting out into the sunshine and exercising with other moms in an environment without judgement, lots of laughter and of course, our kids has been life changing. The experience helped me to embrace my new identity as a mom without losing myself as an individual. Spending time with other moms, of all ages, from all backgrounds, showed me the true meaning of community. Because of this experience, it wasn't a hard decision for me to take over the franchise in the summer of 2014.
I've been there, and I know how hard it can be to get out of the house, to get off the sofa (even to shower, hello!) and put yourself out there. When a mom shows up to class for the first time, it's a victory and I am excited to have a chance to be there to congratulate you and introduce you and your children to a community of new friends. It’s been wonderful to watch you grow and to hear stories of success as you reach your fitness goals. FIT4MOM members inspire me on a daily basis!
It is our privilege to be able to bring you a fun calendar filled with Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, FIT4MOM Run Club, Body Back, Fit4Baby & specialty classes. We have 3 incredible playgroup captains who put together Our Village playdates and crafts and we host a monthly Mom's Night Out. We are also proud to offer evening classes, early morning and Saturday classes for working mothers. We look forward to seeing you in class soon!more
Hi, I’m Denise! I am a certified Stroller Strides and Fit4Baby instructor and all around fitness enthusiast. I discovered FIT4MOM when I saw a group of moms working out in the park near my house soon after I had my son, Oliver (born June of 2016). After some Googling, I found my way into the Sherman Oaks Stroller Strides class! I loved that Stroller Strides was so much more than a workout; it's also a great way to meet other moms in my area and be part of a supportive community. After attending classes for about 6 months, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to become an instructor. I love teaching fun, challenging and ever-changing workouts to my fellow mommas!
Hi I'm Grace! I'm a certified Stroller Strides & Fit4Baby Instructor. I will also be getting certified in Stroller Barre this summer.
I've always been committed to an active lifestyle, starting from when I was a student athlete to now as a wife and mom of 1. FIT4MOM has changed the motherhood experience for me drastically. It's shown me the power of this community. Not only has it changed my body, it's built up my confidence and mental strength as a new mom, as well as helping me rediscover the person I was before motherhood.
I love being a part of that journey for other moms in my community! There are so many pluses to becoming an instructor for FIT4MOM: I can bring my baby to work, I can earn an income while still being a stay-at-home mom, and I can inspire and change the lives of other people. And I am inspired and changed everyday through FIT4MOM.more
Hi! I am Patty. I am a certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre and Fit4Baby instructor. I teach at our Sherman Oaks and Burbank locations. My son Owen was born May 2013 ;and my son Ryder was born in July 2016. We moved back to LA in 2014 after 6 years in Las Vegas where I was an Elementary teacher. I have been going to the gym regularly for over 10 years. I love lifting weights, yoga, and spin classes. I was so excited when Kat stopped me at VNSO and gave me a flyer because I needed something to kick my butt back into shape. Fitness is so important to me and I want to make sure that my sons see how important it is from a young age. I am so excited to be a Stroller Strides Instructor and help other moms feel good in their bodies and live a happy healthy lifestyle.more
