Certified Prenatal & Postnatal Fitness Instructor
I have been teaching Stroller Strides for a year and have loved every minute of it. I love spending time with moms and their kids while helping them get in a great workout! I have always been very passionate about fitness, and now I can share that with all of you! I have always been very active playing sports for as long as I can remember. I have played (although it’s been awhile!) volleyball, softball, basketball, soccer, tennis and track. I have tried many different workouts ranging from at home DVDs, running, weight lifting, boxing, kickboxing, swimming, and of course Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre. I love how Fit4Mom classes give both moms and kids the opportunity to socialize and get a great workout.
My husband Mike and I live in Shorewood with our son Joe and dog Jack. Prior to having my son Joe, I was a Speech Pathologist in the school districts for six years. I decided to take some time away and stay home with Joe.
I have greatly enjoyed my time attending classes and playdates. I hope you all will continue to enjoy the workouts and playdates with me!more
Fit4Baby / Stroller Strides / Body Back Instructor
Kit has always enjoyed being active: from yoga, to lifting weights, to running races. This love of fitness and working out, led her to search for exercise programs while 8 months pregnant with her first child. When she stumbled upon the Fit4Mom's page, she began to count down the days until she could sign up for her first class! In January 2016, Kit joined the 8 week BodyBack session, and shortly after became a Stroller Strides regular. Instantly, she knew that she could cancel her gym membership and get in the work out she was looking for with her new mom friends.
Kit's love for working with people and passion for fitness led her to become a Body Back instructor in August 2016. It is her personal mission to make each woman she encounters to feel the love and support that they need, and often times will check in with past clients to catch up. Kit shares her own personal experiences with losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with all her clients, She continues to research and obtain further certifications in postnatal fitness.
Kit is a mother to Eleanor (2 years) and Henry (3 months)
I started with Fit4Mom in May of 2016. I was so nervous to walk into my first class, but am thankful every day that I did! Fit4Mom has been such a positive force in my life and my hope as an instructor I can give even a fraction of that back to moms in our village that come to my classes! I always go out of my way to reach out to new moms that have joined us, even when I’m not teaching, because that was really what “sold” me on Stroller Strides in the beginning. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly! I knew immediately that I would get more out of this than any gym could offer!
Kat is a mom to two, Trenton (4) and Gemma (1). She is married to her husband, Joe, and also lives with her Greyhound, Pixie, and cat, Ty. Kat is a full time Family Consumer Science teacher at Yorkville High School/ Academy. She teaches Foods 1 & 2 and Child Development. After her son she had a difficult time bouncing back from being a new mom and it took her two years to finally feel like herself again, this was right before getting pregnant with her second. After some complications post delivery after her daughter she decided she needed to start feeling like herself again sooner rather than later. This is when her friend, and now instructor, told her about Fit4Mom. She instantly fell in love with everything Fit4Mom and wants to be able to help moms just like her.
I started Fit4mom with bodyback in January of 2017. I heard of the classes but in the mist of winter I needed so much needed alone time and working out sounded like a great idea to help me get my "body back" post baby. I started Stroller Strides and fell in love with it. The idea of getting a full body workout and bringing my baby was perfect for me. No "mom guilt."
Jennifer is mom to two wonderful boys, Anthony(2) and Charles(9m). She has always had a passion for helping others and encouraging them to reach their goals.
