STROLLER STRIDES INSTRUCTOR-As a new momma, Merrilee was searching for her way back to fitness.
This was a complicated situation with no easy way to facilitate. Then,
when her first daughter Mariah turned 4 months old, she found a way. Not
only did it create a way for her to spend time with Mariah and get in
shape, but it also opened her up to a group of like minded,
enthusiastic, supportive people. This was not something she had to do
Stroller Strides provided a group dedicated to achieve your goals, no matter where you're coming from, or where you want to go. Merrilee became enthralled with the process during her second pregnancy. And, by the time her second girl, Revel, came she was ready to take more of a charge. This exaggerated motivation led to a desire to teach others the way she had been taught. Even while navigating two children and a full time job as a Registered Nurse, she chose to become an ACE group fitness certified Stroller Strides Instructor. Straight momma power!
BODY BACK INSTRUCTOR- Wendy began her Fit4Mom journey in May of 2014 when she joined her first Body Back class. She joined because she realized that she not only needed to loose weight, but that she needed to put more time and energy into taking care of her personal well being. After having two boys two years apart, she lost herself into her new role as mom. Body Back came just at the right time and she immediately she realized she had begun a on a journey that would completely transform her life. After taking numerous back to back sessions she decided she wanted to give back to other women who, like her, had put themselves at the bottom of their priority list. She has been instructing Body Back in Tigard and Tualatin since January 2015. She loves being able to be a part of the journey of other women as they make health, fitness, and most of all, themselves a priority.more
