FIT4MOM Registered Dietitian
Little nuggets: Owen was born May 2015 and our second baby boy is due in January 2017!
Thoughts about FIT4MOM: FIT4MOM is an amazing group of ladies. I am always inspired by the village that is FIT4MOM. There is so much support and positivity that runs through the group. So much so, it makes connecting with others and working out enjoyable and motivating.
What else are you passionate about: I love cooking! Although it takes twice as long (and is messy), I have really enjoyed preparing meals with my son. As a family we enjoy hiking together. I am passionate about being outdoors. Prior to babies, we spent Summer days and evenings running, paddle boarding, mountain biking, hiking and Winter days snowshoeing and downhill skiing.
One piece of advice for new moms regarding our FIT4MOM programs: I really enjoyed Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre when my son was an infant, but we had a little hiccup when he decided he no longer wanted to sleep through class. I took a break and started a Body Back session. It was the perfect space for me to get in a workout and have time away from my little one. Once Owen hit the toddler mark he could participate in all the activities during stroller strides and snack throughout class. It has again become a wonderful outlet for both of us. I would advise new moms to try out all the Fit4Mom programs and find one that works well for you.
Future goal: I would like to compete in an off road duathlon! I have completed numerous road races and half marathons and although enjoyed each, I am ready for the challenge of trail running mixed with one of my favorite sports...mountain biking!
