Client Resource Manager
Stroller Strides & Body Back Instructor Springfield/Kingstowne
Hi, I’m Krista, mom to Christine (July 2013) and Abigail (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 now to be a Body back and Stroller Strides instructor as well as the franchise's Client Resource Manager. It is amazing 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!more

FIT4BABY, Stroller Strides & Stroller Barre Instructor Springfield Town Center / Hayfield
I am mom to Ronan (June 2015) and Isla (November 2017). I work part-time as an Elementary School Counselor. I discovered Stroller Strides when I was on maternity leave with Ronan and missed the support and community when I went back to work full time. Now that I work part-time, I have re-established my connection to this wonderful village and group of moms! I love the fact that I can bring my son with me, get in a great workout, and develop friendships with other moms in the community. I am excited to be a part of this village, to help other moms take time for themselves, and continue to build a community of strong mommas!

Body Back instructor Hayfield/Kingstowne
I am Mom to Veronica and Audra and work full time as the Senior Director of Events at WETA. During maternity leave with my second daughter, I found Stroller Strides and, once back at work, did three sessions of Body Back. Clearly I am hooked on FIT4MOM. I love the community of this inspiring group of Moms aimed at being healthy and working out together. Fitness has always been a part of my life - one of my majors in college was dance. I hope to be able to share my passion for fitness with others.
Body Back instructor Hayfield/Kingstowne
I am Mom to Sydney (December 2012) and Liam (March 2015) and work part-time from home as a web developer. In the past, I’ve coached soccer and basketball and have always had a passion for health and fitness. Gaining 65 lbs. with my first pregnancy made me realize how important that lifestyle was in order to lose the baby weight and be a healthy mom for my family. Once I started Body Back classes after my second child was born I was instantly sold on the effectiveness of the program and the strong community it builds and as soon as the opportunity arose I became a certified instructor. I am so excited to share my love for fitness with other moms in the area.
Stroller Strides Instructor Occoquan/Woodbridge
Hi there! Noah (May 2014) is my little superhero. As a full-time working mom, and Single Mother By Choice, I needed to find my way back to a healthy lifestyle that would help me keep up with my growing boy, and did not require a babysitter! In 2015 I found Fit4Mom—and it was the answer—not only to my physical health, but also to my mommy mental health. My journey started as a weekend warrior at Stroller Strides, and then I jumped into Body Back in 2017. Shannon’s passion for her work, and the fact that I kept coming back for more, made it a no-brainer when Shannon asked me to become an instructor and help keep other hard working moms out there finding time to take care of themselves! So grab the kiddos and come join me for a “Weekend Stroll!"
Playgroup Captain - Our Village in Burke
Playgroup Captain Our Village Kingstowne and Springfield
Hello There! I am a stay at home mom to two beautiful littles- John (May 2013) and Clara (November 2015); and a military- (Navy- Seabee) wife. Finding friends during moves can be tough but then I saw Shannon advertise for the Fit4Mom classes and I thought I would give it a try. From the first day I was hooked and signed up for a membership right there with Amber! I love the friendships that my kiddos and I have made with so many wonderful people! Its amazing the village that we have and how the connections go beyond the workout classes. It didn't take long before I jumped on to be Play Group Captain at Kingstowne and Springfield locations. I enjoy being creative with the different playgroup themes and being able to help connect and spread the love with the moms and kids. I found a place where I can be myself and know that I am accepted for me and thats a feeling that is just amazing. My kids are seeing a happy and healthy mom and will practice the workout moves and songs when we are at home too. It truly does take a village and I'm thrilled I found mine!

FIT4BABY, Stroller Strides & Stroller Barre Instructor Woodbridge
Hello, my name is Heather and I am a mom to Wesley (August 2015) and have another little one on the way (January 2018). My husband is in the military and after moving to Japan and having my son, I decided to become a stay at home mom. I began my fitness journey in 2008 when I become an aerobics instructor. I earned my Masters degree in Exercise Science at UWF and became a personal trainer while completing school. I even trained for and competed in several figure competitions while attending school and made it to nationals in Atlanta in 2012. A friend of mine introduced me to Stroller Strides after becoming an instructor herself. I was intrigued as it sounded like the perfect fit for me! I was still in living in Japan so I didn’t have the opportunity to try it but as soon as we arrived in Virginia I scouted out the closest Stroller Strides and contacted Shannon right away. I was hooked at my very first class! I am so honored to be a part of this village and very much value the relationships I have already made that will surely last a lifetime!more

Hi! I’m a wife and a mom of two boys Jack (Dec 2013) & Joey (Jan 2017) that I’m crazy about. I worked in the dental field for ten years and am now a stay at home mom. Attending Stroller Strides really makes me feel like I’m doing something positive for myself as it allows me to meet my fitness and social needs while still being connected to my children. I was thrilled by the opportunity to become an instructor and during training was struck by the beautiful values of FIT4MOM and their approach towards women. I’m so grateful to be a part of this and look forward to assisting other moms in their journey through motherhood, health, and wellness.more

Playgroup Captain - Our Village Woodbridge
Hello there! I’m Reba and am mom to Anastasia (September 2016). I decided to become a SAHM once she came into our lives. We moved to Woodbridge in the early 2017. I needed mom friends to find support in my new role as mom and to connect in the local area. Thank goodness I found the FIT4MOM LSBWK NoVa page on Facebook. I immediately tried a Stroller Strides class at Potomac Mills Mall and fell in love. Before Anastasia I used to go to a gym with my friend, but after baby I just never felt comfortable leaving her with strangers. I love being able to get in my fitness with her alongside me. I also enjoy the support network and that we all have a common objective; to live a healthy lifestyle and to give our children a lifestyle to emulate. I joined Shannon's franchise in April 2017 and have been a part of this amazing village ever since. In the meantime, I am also enrolled in Body Back classes, which I thoroughly enjoy. Additionally, I help out with the daycare in the HIIT classes on my days that I’m not working out with Anastasia. The best part of my village involvement is that I am the playgroup captain for our Woodbridge location. It’s such a pleasure to make playgroups & classes fun for kids and moms!more
Community Builder - Local Partner Ambassador
Heyyyy! Before mom life I was heavily into real estate, back in the day I did a LOT of retail management and for the past several years I’ve been a Field Hockey coach at Woodbridge H.S.
With my husband (Chris) being deployed and my new role as a stay at home mom to Lizzie (June 2017), I knew I had to make some changes in my life and go outside of my box! I am SO glad Fit4Mom was recommended to me!
I love what this program has to offer, the genuine support we give to each other in the most encouraging environment – oh and there’s the workouts too! I usually workout in Springfield - so come on by to say Heeeyyyy!
I am so excited to be a part of this team and to take on the role as a Community Builder!more
I am mom to Connor (October 2014) and Emma (February 2017). I found Fit4Mom after Emma's birth in Norfolk, Va. I was out walking her in our neighborhood and we passed a woman on sidewalk talking about a workout group for moms and babies. She hooked me up with Fit4Mom Norfolk and I was immediately hooked. Stroller Strides was my saving grace in the months following Emma's birth because my husband deployed shortly after her arrival. The village and the workouts helped me keep my mind and body healthy. We arrived in Northern Virginia in October 2017 and Fit4Mom LSBWK quickly filled that void. This time, with my husband home, I was able to embark on my first Body Back Transformation session and was immediately hooked again! I decided to become an instructor because I know that a healthy momma is a happy momma, which in turn means...a happy family. Fit4Mom was a critical element in very challenging points of my motherhood journey and I hope to share my love of community and fitness in the same way. When I'm not chasing my two kiddos or spending precious time with my husband, I'm working as a freelance writer and am a Navy Reservist. I'm thrilled to be part of the Fit4Mom community and look forward to seeing you and your babies in class -- let's stroll!more
Stroller Strides Instructor
Hello! I am mom to Austin (1998) and Samantha (2017). Yes, it’s quite a gap! Thank goodness I found FIT4MOM. Stroller Strides provides a format supportive for working and stay at home moms. It offers mommas with high energy workouts and the positive companionship and connections that comes from exercising with moms and babies! I am super excited to help mommas in their fitness journey, while continuing to improve my own. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a supportive community that embraces healthy habits.
