the summer of 2013. After five wonderful years of Stroller Strides
membership, Anna decided to become an instructor in 2016. She loves

STROLLER STRIDES INSTRUCTOR- Cara is mother to Emma who is 1 years old. She first learned of the Fit4Mom community when her friend, fellow Stroller Strider, Krista Brown was attending after her son was born. Cara was excited by the idea of a workout class you can take your kids to and couldn't wait for Emma to be born so she could join Stroller Strides! After joining the Fit4Mom village, she quickly felt inspired by all of the moms and instructors. Cara participated in two Body Back Transformation sessions while attending Stroller Strides with her daughter. It became clear to Cara that she wanted to pass on the inspiration and help other moms along their journey, which is why she decided to become an instructor. Cara loves attending class with Emma and her mom tribe and hopes she can inspire and motivate moms and kiddos to stay active and healthy!more
STROLLER STRIDES INSTRUCTOR - Rachel first joined Stroller Strides when she moved to the Portland area with her husband and son in May of 2017. With the move, she had become a stay at home mom for the first time and was looking for a way to meet other moms. She started attending classes and quickly realized that not only was she getting a great workout, but she’d also found a friendly, supportive community of moms to be a part of. She knew this group was something special, so when the opportunity to become an instructor came, she decided to take her long-time passion for health and fitness to the next level and join the team. She hopes to continue to create the wonderful FIT4MOM experience she’s had and help other moms find strength in motherhood!more

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
Hi! My name is Laura and I’ve been with Fit 4 Mom for 7 years starting with Stroller Strides after having my first child and then Body Back once my kids got too big for the stroller! I am a former RN and recently became a Body Back instructor for SW Portland!
STROLLER STRIDES INSTRUCTOR: Hello! My name is Madison. I have been a stay-at-home Mom for 3 years to two beautiful girls, Rimini (8 years old) and Avalynn (2 years old) and married to my best friend and love of my life since 2008. I am thrilled to join FIT4MOM as an instructor teaching what I am passionate about- FITNESS for MOTHERS. I have always enjoyed being active and spending time outdoors, but I was never a part of a fitness program because I didn’t feel comfortable working out in gyms, and I didn’t see myself as an athletic person. In only 2 years FIT4MOM has changed my perception of fitness and my athletic abilities.
When Avalynn was 5 months old, I was a wreck after too many sleepless nights, not happy with my health and fitness, and months of isolation had left me without any real social life. Stay-at-home life was much different than I had imagined and I was spending too much time taking care of everyone else rather than myself. I knew that I needed to change how I felt. That's when I discovered FIT4MOM and began my fitness journey with Stroller Strides. Throughout a year of attending Stroller Strides, my happiness, health, and social life all improved. I learned to have fun with my baby while also taking care of me.
In 2017, our lives changed when my husband got a job offer in beautiful Oregon and we jumped at the opportunity. After getting settled in, I signed up for the FIT4MOM SW Portland Stroller Strides classes. I transitioned to Body Back classes in February 2018. My Body Back journey has truly been life altering. I am now in the best shape of my life and am improving with each class. FIT4MOM classes and the community of moms I’ve met over the years have all shown me how to take care of myself and how that is important for a happy life. I know I am not alone because there truly is strength in motherhood. I hope to help #allthemoms reach their goals and inspire and show them that YOU too are important, that YOU should take care of yourself first and you CAN become fit post-baby. I can’t wait to meet all of you and your children in class.more
