Franchise owner - Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Fit4Baby and Body Back instructor

Hi there! I am a mom of two, Chelsea was born in November of 1991 and Julia in February of 2013. Quite a gap and needless to say after having Julia I needed a network of moms with children her age. A friend of mine referred me to Stroller Strides in Maryland when she was six weeks old and I loved it right from start. They inspired me to be the best mom that I can and helped me shed my last pregnancy pounds. I was a participant at Stroller Strides for over a year; I also joined the Body Back class in the fall of 2013 and lost 15 pounds (16 inches!!!). Fitness and a healthy life style are very important to me. The lasting friendships that have been made are remarkable. My husband decided to retire from the U.S. Navy after 34 years of service and therefore move back to his roots and family here in Northern Virginia. I was torn about leaving all the great moms and little ones but being near family is a great benefit all the way around. I am excited to teach my own classes and make new lasting friendships and create a great community of moms. Fit moms rock!!!!more

Stroller Strides and Body Back instructor


I am a stay at home mom of a beautiful little girl, Jasmine (Nov 2013). I started Stroller Strides almost a year ago and fell in love immediately. I have also completed three rounds of Body Back, which has had an enormous impact in my life and health. Stroller Strides is not just about working out, it is about the Village that is created when mom's get together with a common goal, a healthy lifestyle. This Village has changed my life, and I can't wait to see how I will be able to impact it further.

Stroller Strides & FIT4BABY prenatal instructor

Hi I'm Andrea. Mom to 3 little boys Sean (December 2007) Connor (August 2009) and Ethan (October 2011). I've always been very active. I played soccer in college and have completed two marathons. After having my 2nd child I discovered Stroller Strides and fell in love. I became an instructor in August of 2010. I loved that I could bring my children with me to workout, setting a good example for them and at the same time having fun with great friends. I taught for Stroller Strides of Southeastern CT for 3 yrs until we moved to Hawaii in 2013 (my husband Mark is an active duty US Navy submarine officer). We then moved to Virginia in the spring of 2015. Now that we're here in VA I'm excited to be involved with fit4mom again!!!

Stroller Strides instructor

Hi, I’m Ginger, mom to twins Jay and Addelyn (May 2014) and a little boy due in May 2016! I began working in the Wellness industry in 2005 as a part-time instructor of aerobics and yoga. Soon, my part-time job became a full-time passion, and I decided to switch careers and pursue wellness full-time. I completed my Masters of Science in Exercise Science, with concentrations in Exercise, Nutrition and Eating Behavior in May 2011 and have been working full-time as a personal trainer, yoga instructor and nutrition counselor at The Sports Club/LA (recently converted to Equinox) until I had my babies. Now I am a stay-at-home-mom and am excited to teach Stroller Strides! We’re all navigating the crazy world of parenting together, and what a unique opportunity to work out with fellow moms and build each other up!

Playgroup Captain - Our Village in Burke


I am mom to Arwen (January 2013) and Lorelei (October 2015). In addition to caring for my girls, I have a photography business for children and family portrait sessions. I started Stroller Strides at another location in 2013 and was instantly hooked. Having never really exercised before, getting into a fitness routine was easier than I thought it could be, and I loved having a support network with a common objective. I joined Shannon's franchise when she began in 2014 and have watched her amazing village grow. It took three years of Stroller Strides, but I finally enrolled in the Body Back program and have been thrilled with the results. I am excited to be the playgroup captain for our Burke location and can't wait to make classes fun for kids and moms!

Stroller Barre and Stroller Strides instructor

Hi I'm Lauren and moved to VA with my new Marine husband in 2013 and was a full time vet assistant. Although I didn't really know anyone outside of work I decided to become a stay at home mom the day I had to drop my then 8 week old daughter Annora off at daycare. I have two girls, Annora (May 2014) & Susanna (May 2016). I started SS in Feb of 2015 and loved it right away. The network of moms we have met has changed our lives in the best way. Having this village has been the single most important thing I could have done as a new mom. After making this a constant part of our routine and taking body back, I got my body & so much more back. I'm looking forward to subbing stroller strides classes and starting stroller barre fall 2016!

Ops Manager & Playgroup Captain for Our Village Springfield

Hi, I’m Krista, mom to Christine (July 2013) and another girl due in April 2016! I love being a stay at home mom but with our move to Virginia in August 2015 (Army family) I realized I was missing my support network. I was so excited to find Stroller Strides in December 2015 and to now be the playgroup captain at Springfield! It is awesome to be able to get a great workout while being a healthy example for my daughter with other motivated moms. I love this community and the opportunities to support other moms on their journey to achieve their goals!

Stroller Strides and Body Back instructor


I am mom to four beautiful girls, Katie (9 years old); Emma and Emily (5 years old); and Mary (2 years old). I began my Stroller Strides journey in 2011 in Washington State and absolutely loved the program and the idea of taking care of myself again, while still being able to have my babies close to me. With our move to Virginia (Army family) I immediately looked into Fit4Mom connections and found Shannon and her team. With our village my children and I have made amazing friends. I have been a participant in Stroller Strides for 5 years; I also joined Body Back in February of 2015, completing 6 sessions and have had amazing results! I am very excited to be in the position to help moms to gain physical and emotional strength.

Body Back instructor


I’m a mom of two girls, Lyndsey (22 yrs old) and Cassandra (16 yrs old). I was introduced to Body Back January 2015 and couldn’t get enough. Learning more about nutrition combined with high intensity workouts have pushed me out of my comfort zone and have helped me achieve the results I was looking for. Thanks to Body Back I am now in better shape and stronger than I have ever been. I look forward to my new journey as an instructor and hope to encourage other women to grow and support them in their personal journeys.

Playgroup Captain - Our Village Woodbridge

Hello, my name is Emily Miller. I am a stay at home mom of Maci (October 2014). I have always been active since I was little, playing soccer for over 10 years and within the last year got into running! I found out about Stroller Strides while wandering through a little festival where there was a table set up. I thought it would be a great way to get some exercise, other than running, into my routine and loved that I could take my little one with me! Just moving into the area, it also seemed like a great way to meet some friends as well! My husband is in the military, so my family moves every couple of years, which means meeting people is not always the easiest! I did work before moving onto Quantico, and have a degree in Industrial Design. The areas we move to don't always have opportunities for me, so taking this time to spend with my little girl and meeting these amazing women has been a blessing! Hopefully with my art background, I can help your littles enjoy doing crafts even more! I am excited to see what we can create!

Stroller Strides Instructor

Hello! I am a former Auditor and Tax Accountant, Navy Wife and now a Stay-At-Home Mom to 4 children; 3 boys - Nathaniel (9), William (6) and Charles (2), and a daughter - Katherine, who passed away in 2013 at 37 weeks gestation, due to a severe heart defect. Our family misses Baby Katherine every day. We continue to move forward in life and embrace each day granted us together, with hope, that we can help others who may face a similar loss.

Fit4Mom and Stroller Strides has been a part of my life for over 6 years, since my middle son was just 4 months old! Our adventure began in 2010 in Newport, RI when the Stroller Strides franchise there was brand new. I was thrilled to find a workout where I could have my children with me, and be with other moms.

Then in 2011, the Navy moved us to Virginia Beach and thankfully, Stroller Strides was there too! I immediately jumped in and started attending classes. Stroller Strides became my lifeline, not only as a fabulous workout but also as an emotional support for myself and my kids, during 3 years of sea duty, including a 10 month deployment. I and my children made lifelong friends through the Fit4Mom Village, who we still visit and stay in close contact with.

Again in 2014, we moved with the Navy back to Newport, RI. At that time, I got certified to be a Stroller Strides/Fit4Baby Instructor but unfortunately, was unable to teach as I decided to homeschool our older children for our remaining time in Rhode Island. However, we continued to attend Stroller Strides classes and be part of the Fit4Mom Village in Newport, especially since our last child, Charles was born in late 2014.

Finally in May 2016, we landed here in Northern Virginia, again on orders from the Navy. I was so excited to see that there is a Fit4Mom franchise in Lorton/Springfield/Burke/Woodbridge with classes held so close to our new home. The boys and I jumped right in, attending classes and immediately felt embraced into our new Village! With the support of Shannon, our Franchise Owner, I am thrilled to join the team as an Instructor!

Stroller Strides instructor


Hi, my name is Kathryn. I am mom of a beautiful daughter, Delilah (February 2014). I have always had a passion for getting in shape and staying healthy; having completed several half marathons (as part of the 50-State-Challenge) and attending many group classes, like spin and yoga. But once my daughter Delilah came along I wanted to be part of a group that could relate, and also one where I could be able to share this time with her. I work a full time job and it's important to me to have this time with her, especially when it influences her so much. When I came across Stroller Strides I, as well as Delilah, was impressed from day one. It is a great way to not only get and stay healthy but to be able to spend this time with your child. I'm so excited to be a part of this village and continue my passion, while helping others discover theirs.

Hi, I'm Becky and I am a mom of two - Evan (June 2012) and Charlotte (February 2014).

I love fitness and found Stroller Strides to be the perfect way to share exercise and a healthy lifestyle with my children. I'm a certified Stroller Strides instructor and I am excited to share my enthusiasm with other moms!

Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre Instructor

Hi I'm Rebecca, mum to Chloe (born June 2016). My FIT4MOM journey started in August 2016 at 6 weeks postpartum. I had recently moved to Northern Virginia and was eager to meet new friends, exercise again and establish a new routine. I've always been a fitness enthusiast (participating in triathlons and being a spin instructor), and I was excited at the possibilities that FIT4MOM held for me - not only for my health but for my social life.

I started Stroller Strides classes a couple times a week and I was quickly addicted. Attending classes soon became part of my daily routine, and while I relished coming to class and getting a great workout, the thing that got me hooked was having a support system in the form of my new found village.

As a new mum I was navigating the chaos of being a first time parent and transitioning from a much loved career to life as a stay at home mum. My FIT4MOM journey started with the intention of getting out the house a few times a week, getting a good workout and hopefully having some adult conversation...I never expected to find a group of strong women who support and empower me to be the best version of myself. I'm so excited to be a part of this team and I hope that I can give this gift to someone else.

Chloe & I look forward to meeting you

Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre Instructor

Hi, I’m Cheryl, mom to Haven (July, 2016). I have always had a passion for a healthy lifestyle through exercise and good nutrition. I love being active, I was a competitive figure skater for 14 years and later taught learn-to-skate for a few years there after. I discovered Stroller Strides 3 months postpartum and it was the best thing I ever did for myself and my new “stay at home” lifestyle. Stroller Strides gave me a reason to get out of the house and over come my postpartum funk. I fell in love with the fact I could bring my baby and introduce her to a healthy lifestyle, as well as, meet a whole village of moms that I could connect with. I am thrilled to be part of this village and to help others find their strength in motherhood and themselves.

Social Media Mom

Hello, my name is Andrea. Prior to 2014, I was a kindergarten teacher in the PA public school system. But once I met my daughter, Olivia, all of that changed- I had met my prized pupil. Within 3 months after becoming a new mom, I quit my job, packed up our house and (thanks to my husband's new job) relocated from Reading, PA to Old Town Alexandria.

I have always loved to be active. But doing that with a baby in tow is tricky. And not knowing anyone in Alexandria made that even harder. After some simple googling, I found Fit4Mom Alexandria/Arlington Stroller Strides, and went to my first class in September 2015. My daughter and I were hooked from the get go! Thanks to the chronic DC traffic, and my husband, Dave's, preference for open air and a yard- we moved to Lorton in February 2016. I quickly reached out to Shannon and started attending her Woodbridge classes ASAP. Obviously, I loved it!

Shannon and her Fit4Mom team do more than just lead fun challenging workouts. They've given me a community of likeminded moms who I can enjoy in and outside of class! Not to mention, the extra mile they go for arranging outings for me (AKA Mom's Night Out), field trips for my little, and weekly play groups that just make life more fun for me and my daughter.

Like a true extrovert, I love meeting new people and like a true kindergarten teacher, I love to encourage, doodle, and communicate. So when Shannon asked me to help her reach out to moms via Social Media- it was a match made in Fit4Mom heaven. It is important to me to connect and encourage moms in our community. To help new moms fully understand all the genuine fun and fitness Fit4Mom has to offer.

Whether you're a new mommy or a veteran one - I already like you! And if I haven't met you yet, I look forward to chatting with you and your little(s) soon. :)
