STROLLER STRIDES INSTRUCTOR-Anna discovered Stroller Strides in Northern Virginia in 2011, when her first daughter was a year old. She fell in love with it, and was thrilled to find a local Stroller Strides when she moved to Portland in the summer of 2013. After five wonderful years of Stroller Strides membership, Anna decided to become an instructor in 2016. She loves being mom to her three daughters - 6 year old Ella, 4 year old Katie, and 2 year old Emily - and she is so proud to be a part of Fit4Mom!


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 ALONE.

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!


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!


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!

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.


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!

I love Fit 4 Mom because it gives me the opportunity to be around an amazing group of women, all striving to be the best version of themselves everyday. I can feel this in the classes and in the women I meet.
Motherhood is hard. We all deserve time to ourselves and Fit 4 Mom helps us see that taking time for yourself is ok. In fact, it’s encouraged!
Come and give yourself that time. Push yourself out of your comfort zone, feel strong and empowered! You deserve it! Hope to see you soon!
