Magda teaches Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, & Body Back. She is certified in Fit4Baby too!
Mom to Charlie (12/2012) and Sawyer (11/2014).
Magda's Why: "I found FIT4MOM by chance. I had a 15 month old and found out I was pregnant, slightly unplanned with my second. I was working part time and completely lost. The first Stroller Strides class I attended I felt at home. I felt like I found my tribe - moms who got it. Moms who saw me at my very best and my very worst and never judged me. These women became more then just my village, they became my second family.
Karie teaches Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Fit4Baby, and Body Back.
Mama to Bode (4/2015) and Molly (12/2016).
Karie's Why: "My WHY, is 2 tiny humans that love to do squats. No, seriously, they love doing squats. They love going to Stroller Strides and on days we don’t go, my oldest will ask, why. Stroller Strides has been a huge part of motherhood for myself. I joined in Fall 2015 after moving to Silverdale from Okinawa, Japan. We made Stroller Strides apart of our daily routine, and that has lead to so much strength, not just physical strength but strength in the day to day of parenting. Going to class always makes the day better. I strive to better myself at ever class, to push forward even when I’m tired or sluggish, and in reward, I get to be a positive role model for them."more
Stroller Strides and FIT4Baby Instructor.
Mama to Akaya (7/2015) and Imani (5/2017).
Kaylee's Why: "Transitioning into motherhood was isolating for me. FIT4MOM Kitsap has given me a place to sweat it out and get those endorphins pumping while building meaningful relationships. Being able to bring my kids with me and have built in play dates is really a dream scenario!
While showing up to classes and being rocked by great workouts, this voice in my head kept saying, "You should do that!" I'm so glad I listened because I love creating a workout that keeps moms moving, laughing and even dancing until the hour has passed and they hardly even realize how much stronger they've gotten. What a huge accomplishment and example we give to our children and the other moms around us!"more
Kelsey is our Playgroup Captain extraordinaire and single handed puts on weekly playgroups at after classes!
Mama to Landon, Lillian, Olivia and baby girl due this summer!
Kelsey's Why: "Hi My name is Kelsey. I have a son Landon who is 4 1/2, daughters Lillian, who is 3 1/2, and Olivia, who is 1 1/2. I am also due with my 4th baby this June. FIT4MOM has been a truly life changing find for me. Not only do I get to workout, but I get to do it while interacting with my kids. I love how I am teaching my kids that exercise is not only fun but healthy. My 1 1/2 year old can do a killer squat, all thanks to stroller strides! I look forward to getting my workout in everyday, and my kids look forward to playgroups with their friends after class. It brings me joy to see the kids having fun at the playgroups, and I am so happy to be playgroup captain! I am a firm believer that it takes a village to raise children, and I am so thankful I have found my village with FIT4MOM Kitsap!"more

Mama to McKenna (1/2015) and Ashton (5/2017)
Kendra's why: "My FIT4MOM “Why” all comes down to being the best individual, wife, and mother I can be! FIT4MOM has not only helped me become stronger and more physically fit than I have ever been, it has provided me with a village of moms who have supported me through the highs and lows of motherhood. I have also watched my two daughters develop friendships and learn the importance of physical fitness and self-care through FIT4MOM, which is absolutely invaluable! I love sharing my FIT4MOM experience with other moms and welcoming them to our village!"more

Mom to Emily (3/2015)
Leanne's Why: "My FIT4MOM why is community. Stroller Strides got me out of the house and moving when I was a new mom. The welcoming village made me look forward to each day. All the while, I built my confidence and strength as a mother. I am forever grateful for daily support and encouragement, and I am grateful I have the opportunity to pay it forward as an instructor. I love the opportunity to encourage and support all the moms wherever they are in their journey."more
Lindsey is a Body Back instructor!
Mama to Amelia (5/2016).
Lindsey's Why: "My FIT4MOM why is all the lovely ladies I have met and continue meeting. I started with Stroller Strides and distinctly remember meeting Karie Morton on my first day, welcoming me to my first class. I remember how isolated motherhood felt for me and the daunting task of returning to work. Body Back (and Magda) saw me through it. I met boss-mamas who not only balance work and life but also children and families. Their continued brilliance and strength are my inspiration. Body Back is community of amazing women that come together two days a week to push themselves to transformation: mentally, physically, and socially. I simply love that. It makes motherhood less lonely. In the words of so many award shows: “I have so many people to thank for this awesome blessing...and not enough time.” Won’t you join us?"more
Stephanie teaches Stroller Strides and is certified in Fit4Baby too.
Mom to William (5/2012) and Audrey (2/2014).
Stephanie's Why: "I joined Stroller Strides when my oldest was 4 months old. I was suffering from crippling postpartum anxiety and knew that I needed to find a reason to get our of the house. I remember going to my first few classes and being amazed that no one batted an eye when my child started to cry. In fact, the instructor pushed him around so I could continue exercising! The consistent exercise paired with a community of moms who were supportive and kind helped me get to a better place, both physically and emotionally.
