First up, Nikki Shevitz:

How long have you been a part of F4M & what got you started?

Summer 2018

Names & ages of your children? Share one fun thing about each!

Sienna, 18 months; Dancing is one of her favorite things to do, and she loves to give fist bumps (and high fives)! When she gives fist bumps it's the cutest thing!

Who is your spouse? How long have you been together?

My husband's name is Matthew, and we've been together for over 11 years, married for 4 years.

Before joining our village and before having children, what kept you busy?

It's only been a little over 2 years, but it's hard to think back that far! Before my kiddo and joining the FIT4MOM village, I was a working as a Barre3 exercise instructor and running my own nutrition coaching business.

What are 3 words a good friend would use to describe you?

Kind, funny, beautiful (my friend's words, not mine!!)

Why are you passionate about FIT4MOM?

FIT4MOM encourages every woman no matter what stage of motherhood they're in to take care of herself, and the community it forms is incredible and really beautiful.

Tell us how Motherhood changed you?

This is a loaded question! Motherhood has changed my perspective in so many ways. There is something about having the huge responsibility of raising a human being that comes with pressure to instill the right principles and raise a "good" child and fear that you won't. But it also comes with humility. I believe the biggest way that it has changed me is giving myself grace for when I think I fall short as a Mom or when things don't go the way that I expected. Motherhood has given me grace to allow myself to be okay with outcomes that I can't necessarily control, and I've become a better person because of it.

Why should a new mom join FIT4MOM Cedar Mill:

THE COMMUNITY is seriously the best! Plus you get to take care of yourself with an amazing workout :)

Now a little about Krista Kahmann:

How long have you been a part of F4M & what got you started?

About 1 1/2 years! Kyla Walish introduced me and the amazing like minded women in the community were the reason I joined!

Names & ages of your children? Share one fun thing about each!

Harper 2 1/2 and she has been a animal lover since she was a baby.

Who is your spouse? How long have you been together?

Chase Kahmann married 5years this June together for 7years

Before joining our village and before having children, what kept you busy?

I was a Manager and Treasury Management Officer at a community bank. I enjoyed traveling and play sports.

What are 3 words a good friend would use to describe you?

Loving, adventurous and honest

Why are you passionate about FIT4MOM?

I love the positive and encouraging women that I get to surround myself with daily! I am so grateful for the wonderful friendships made and the constant support in all aspects of my life!

Tell us how Motherhood changed you?

Motherhood has allowed me grow in ways I didn’t know I needed to, has humbled me and grew my heart by 20x. It also have help find my true passion and changed my career path to focus on women in all phases of motherhood!

Why should a new mom join FIT4MOM Cedar Mill:

Every new or expecting mama needs a community of women who are in the same phase of life. FIT4MOM is full of like minded women who encourage you both physically and emotionally and love you wherever you are in you personal journey! Take one class and you’ll quickly realize this is more than a work out, this is a sisterhood!
