Hello strong and beautiful mommies!
My name is Angie and I have a passionate 2 year old daughter named Peyton. I am originally from the Inland Empire but moved out to Vista in the North County of San Diego back in August of 2015. I have always wanted to live here, and I still can't believe my family and I are able to call this gorgeous place home! Since I was a little girl, I have always been an athletic and fitness driven person. I was the "tom boy" of the group. I loved playing with the boys and getting dirty. Thanks to my mother I do have a girly side, but if it would have been up to me, I would have been outside everyday, all day, enjoying the sun. I started with gymnastics as a kid, then cheer, and then just exercising for the relief of stress as an adult. I have always been a bit afraid to go after my dreams since I had a lack of confidence growing up, and for the first time in my life, I am in the best place I have ever been, and I can honestly say I love myself more than ever. I have a passion for women and I truly admire each unique individual. I love seeing the different women I come across and all their rare traits and personalities. I believe we all have a purpose on this earth and I also believe us, as women, are the backbone and foundation of our families essence. I would love nothing more than to be a driving force in helping women, and people in general to find the best version of themselves. For those reasons, working for Fit4MOM Stroller Strides as an instructor is a dream come true. After having my daughter, I gained a lot of weight and felt pretty embarrassed with myself. I gained over 60 pounds during my pregnancy, and was unable to see myself as others saw me. I found myself staying at home without any motivation to go outside or be social. I worked out from home, but as you know, that can become very tiresome and pretty boring. I had a friend suggest Stroller Strides to me and I was very timid about going to a big group of women that I didn't know. It was an intimidating thought. After a few pushes from my husband, I finally went. They were all so nice and welcoming, and after that day I never looked back. Besides Stroller Strides, the driving force for me is my daughter, and love of my life. I don't want my daughter to deal with the same confidence issues I grew up with. I want my daughter to grow up ALWAYS loving herself, and accepting everything about her, knowing that she is a diamond full of flaws and she is more than beautiful, but strong, talented, and loved. I'm so very excited to be an instructor and embark on this new adventure with all of you! I hope to help brighten your day and aid you through your mommy life with a fantastic workout, some great discussions, and hopefully, a few laughs!
