Get to know one of our awesome Team Members, Candice Agustin! We have an amazing, dedicated and talented team of moms here at FIT4MOM LSBWK NoVa, and we want you to get to know a little more about each one of them. So for March, we'll put the spotlight on Candice Agustin, Stroller Strides Instructor for our Burke Village for FIT4MOM LSBWK NoVa.
Candice and I met about two years ago when we both had infants and were new to Stroller Strides. I loved her energy and dedication. She attended class nearly every day and worked so hard to reach the goals she set for herself. Now as an instructor, her positivity is infectious and leaves me feeling strong and confident after each class. She is also a rockstar mom and it shows in how engaged she keeps the kids during class (and outside of class - she has a sizeable toddler fan club). We love you, Candice!

I first met Candice this January. She was so positive and upbeat about the program. I was at the crossroads with both my fitness and parenthood. My little one was finally ready to get out more and I was ready to get off the couch and get moving again. I’ve never been the kind of person that’s been into group fitness but I was immediately put at ease by Candice during my first class. Candice is upbeat, hilarious, supportive, encouraging, and relatable. She strikes the perfect balance between getting me to work hard in class and being understanding when it’s not my morning. She’s just thrilled to see me! I can’t thank Candice enough for being there to help cheer me on. She’s helped me achieve fitness goals that I’ve never thought possible. Fit4Mom has changed my life in such a positive way and I have Candice to thank for bringing me into the fold. She’s the best!
