Aloha, I'm Marilyn the new owner of Fit4Mom Central Oahu. I have been with Fit4Mom as a client for just over a year. The amazing Ohana that I have found through Fit4Mom is why I decided to not only teach, but to buy the business. I come from the great state of Connecticut (go Huskies) and have a background in Nuclear Engineering. I found a passion when I moved to Hawaii and that passion is motherhood. I'm sure you thought I would say fitness and fitness is indeed a passion, but being a mother will always come first. As a mom we need to also find time for ourselves and treat our bodies right so we can then in turn help our kids. Fit4Mom is about helping moms find the strength for motherhood; to squat and pick up a toy for the 50th time, to pick up and put down kid(s), and to run outside with our littles ones. I am so excited to bring more people into our village, while helping those we already have in our village!more
Aloha, my name is Jen I am a proud Navy wife and mother to two little boys, Alex and Zane. I joined Stroller Strides in Hawaii in 2014 shortly after the birth of my sons. Having a husband that deploys, it was important for me to find a support system and Stroller Strides did that for me.
I grew up in the small town of Bend, Oregon where I spent a lot of time outdoors hiking, biking and camping. During the winter months you could find me on the slopes as I am an avid skier.
Becoming a stroller strides instructor has been one of the best decisions I've ever made as a mother. I can workout, meet new moms and have my boys with me all at the same time! I have been here in Oahu for over three years now and love being part of the Central Oahu Stroller Strides community!
I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your potential and goals.more
Aloha, My name is Heather and I'm originally from New Jersey. My husband John is in the Coast Guard and we moved to Oahu in May 2014. Our daughter Bryn was born shortly after in August. I was a very active person before and during my pregnancy so after having Bryn I started looking for gyms to join to get back to my active life style. What I found was that I was not ready to leave my tiny baby even if it was just for a short time. I joined Stroller Strides in January 2015 and fell in love. When I started it was just about getting back into an active lifestyle, but I gained so much more. The incredible group of women I found became my family and the tribe that I needed to help adjust to island life and life as new stay at home mom.
Becoming an instructor was the perfect fit for me. I was able to combine my love for fitness and exercise with my love for teaching all while having Bryn with me. I love helping other moms reach their goals and be healthy role models for their kids. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and hope to see in the park soon.
Aloha! My name is Melanie and I am thrilled to be an instructor with the FIT4MOM Central Oahu team. My loving husband, Miguel and I moved to Oahu in 2011 from Southern California. We wanted to start a family and what better place to do that in than paradise! We had our son, Sebastien, in July 2013. I joined Stroller Strides in November 2013. Seeing all of the mommas working hard in front of their babies made me realize that I was in the right place!
I have always been an active and athletic person who likes to explore different physical activities. Growing up I played baseball, volleyball and softball. Miguel and I have been together for 18 years and we've completed 11 marathons, 2 half marathons and numerous 5k & 10k races. Throughout my pregnancy I took yoga classes and even ran 3-5 miles, 4 days a week, until my 34th week!
Stroller Strides has helped me find a group of ladies I not only sweat with but can count on at any time. I know with my Stroller Strides sisters that I'm not alone in the daily struggles of "mom life".
As an instructor I will strive to empower moms physically and mentally. I will create a "village" of encouragement, strength and inspiration.
