How long have you been a part of F4M & what got you started?
September 2016 - I moved to Portland and wanted to find a great workout program that involved kids. I was lucky to have driven by Bethany Village at 9:30 and saw amazing moms with their kiddos working out!
Names & ages of your children? Share one fun thing about each!
Jayla, 4: she loves to make up silly songs! Kyler, 2: he's really into breaking and then rebuilding things :)
Who is your spouse? How long have you been together?
John Lindsley - hard to believe but we've been married for 9 years already!
Before joining our village and before having children, what kept you busy?
I worked in International Education at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA. In my freetime, John and I used to play tennis, go to dinner, travel, and hang out with friends.
What are 3 words a good friend would use to describe you?
fun, helpful, and caring
Why are you passionate about FIT4MOM?
As a stay at home mom, it's nice to workout during the day and FIT4MOM provides this opportunity without finding childcare. And the moms are so awesome! Even when Kyler wasn't that into being in a stroller, I didn't want to give up FIT4MOM for the community. Now I've been enrolled in Body Back, and it's such an intense but fun workout. In just 4 weeks, I feel like I've accomplished so much
Tell us how Motherhood changed you?
My kids bring so much happiness into my life. Every day is a fun adventure, and I love watching them grow. On the other hand, mothers have a tendency to omit the focus on self, and it's important to incorporate balance and I'm just now starting to find balance again (doing BodyBack has helped me do so!)
Why should a new mom join FIT4MOM Cedar Mill:
It's the best community! It's not just the workout, it's the bonds you form with each other. I hope to be a part of this community for a long time!
