Welcome to Fit4Mom Santa Cruz!

Hi, I'm Jessica, mom to Leila who was born in November, 2012! I am a Santa Cruz native who spent many years away for college and work. I loving relearning the area I grew up in and experiencing all the wonderful kid and family friendly activities. Before becoming a full time mom I worked as a school counselor. I have always loved working with others to achieve their goals, and have a love of all things outdoors and fitness related, so becoming part of the FIT4MOM Family seem to be a natural fit.

The FIT4MOM Programs have not only helped me get back in physical strength after the birth of my daughter, but provided me with a phenomenal community of women and children who have become my closest friends. Our workouts can be as challenging as you need them to be; there's always another mama in the group who's there to push you on days your competitive nature comes out, and those who are ready to walk and talk when you need someone to share your kid stories with.

I encourage all moms to come out and give our group a try - our classes are about so much more than "sets and reps" this is a workout, a community, a village, and we're waiting for you to join us!!!

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Hi I'm Liz, mom to Delilah! I am originally from western New York and moved to Santa Cruz in 2011 to be with my husband who moved here for work. Love the beach lifestyle and how easy it is to enjoy the outdoors!

I grew up sailing on Lake Ontario and started teaching when I was 16, I coached kids and adults for 14 years before I moved out west. Living in Santa Cruz gave me the opportunity to discover yoga and I started training to be a yoga instructor during my pregnancy and finished a couple months after giving birth.

I discovered stroller strides when Delilah was a few weeks old and we were at the park with our dog. I saw this whole group of moms, babies and strollers and was like "I need that!!" We started when she was 6 weeks old and it has become a part of our daily routine! Just love all the moms and kids we have met and I am so looking forward to meeting many more!

Hi I’m Polly, mom to Cadence (born June 2014) & Bevan (born Sept 2016)! My husband and I met on the triathlon team at Cal Poly, SLO. We moved to Aptos in 2007 and have continued to swim, bike, run and race for fun.

I joined Stroller Strides when Cadence was 3 months old and have been in love with it ever since. I really enjoy being able to get my workout in, keep her entertained and allow her to play with other kids after. I was incredibly excited when offered the opportunity to teach and bring fitness into the lives of moms and welcome them into such a fun and inviting community. I hope to meet up with you and your little one at the next workout!


Hi, I'm Aimee and mom to Damien! I was born and raised in Santa Clara and moved to Capitola 2 years ago, having spent the 9 years prior to that in San Francisco. Before becoming a mom and moving to this area, I was a Training Manager for a luxury retail company and have a background in retail and sales.

My FIT4MOM Santa Cruz journey started in August of 2015 when I attended my first Stroller Strides class and fell in love with it! I really enjoyed (and still do!) that I am able to take care of myself while still being able to care for my little guy, and we both have fun at the same time! It has been a win/win for both of us, as I get to interact with other women who are in the same stage of their life as I am, and my son gets to interact with children both younger and older. I also am a loyal participant of Body Back as of January 2016, and am feeling the most fit I have probably been for my whole adulthood. The support, friendship, and camaraderie found in Stroller Strides and Body Back have been the best and most treasured part and now being fit enough to run after and hold my energetic and growing toddler has also been a great result of attending class!

When the opportunity to instruct came knocking on my door, there was no way I could turn it down; and I hope to provide to other moms all the amazing things that Fit4Mom has brought to my life and my family's. I love meeting new people, especially moms and kids, and look forward to helping you on your journey, too!"
