I began taking Stroller Strides classes in 2012, when my daughter, Stella, was just 6 weeks old. I became the owner of Fit4Mom Quad Cities in 2014. I have a background in physical therapy and transitioning to instructing Stroller Strides classes seemed like a natural fit for me! My husband and I welcomed Samuel in 2015. I am certified in Stroller Strides, Body Back, Fit4Baby and as a run instructor. I also enjoy traveling, playing tennis, working out and scrapbooking.
I am so excited Sarah is staying on with my team! Sarah grew up in the area. After living in Chicago for 8 years she moved back to the Quad Cities and now live in Moline with her husband Sean and 3 kids Nathan, Hannah and Lauren. Sarah joined Stroller Strides in the fall of 2008 and became an instructor in April 2009 while pregnant with Hannah. She love to run, work out, read and do crossword puzzles.more

Michelle has served as our playgroup captain since Jan. 2015. She makes sure all the playgroups happen! Her days spent as a teacher, prior to staying home with her son, make her more than qualified for this position!
Michelle began attending stroller strides with her son, Owen, 3, in the summer of 2013. She also enjoys running.
