Just two sisters-in-law who love health, fitness and their babies!
Hi women of the world. It’s wonderful to meet you!
I’m a West Coast born and bred girl who is planting some roots in Pocatello, Idaho. But that hasn’t always been the case. My husband and I have trotted all over the world in pursuit of his M.D. degree – living in Reno, Nev.; Newcastle, England; Heber City, Utah; Grenada, West Indies; Redlands, Calif.; and too many other little jaunts to mention.
Before these adventures, I was a professional journalist all my professional life. But there was one passion that went unfulfilled: fitness training.
I am now certified through The American Council on Exercise to teach all sorts of people – young, old, male, female, meaty or measly. But after struggling to stay fit during my own challenging pregnancy and recovery, my passion became pre and post-natal fitness.
I now do in-home and group training for all super moms and hope to share what I’ve learned on this blog. I love working with people like me – people who just want to run, jump and play with their families without feeling exhausted afterward. I am sassy, irreverent, unapologetic about the importance of vaccinations and (like most normal women out there) completely imperfect in my own exercise and diet habits.
I believe fitness is a journey we take over a lifetime with ups and downs and a need for the occasional chocolate bar. If you don’t like to exercise and, like me, prefer burgers over bean sprouts, I am here for you.
Welcome to your fitness blog!

I am a California girl, born and raised and will forever be. Life, however, has also taken me outside of the golden state. While attending a community college in central coast, CA I was struggling to decide what I wanted to do with my life. After lots of loving nagging from my wonderful mother, I reluctantly took a more sophisticated “career aptitude test”. It will turn out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. It told me that I would best be suited working with children and being outdoors.
After some thought about how I would combine the two, I decided I wanted to pursue a career as a Physical Education teacher. I attended Utah State University and majored in Human Movement Science with a teaching emphasis and fell in love with my program and fitness! While being a P.E. teacher never panned out, my love for fitness and wellness never wavered. I love learning about anything to do with the field and sharing what I love.
Do not be fooled though, my love for cheesecake and cheeseburgers is just as strong, but there is a balance to everything. What I hope to instill to the women of the world and especially my daughter is this: Fitness to me is about being strong mentally and physically and about finding happiness in the journey and feeling beautiful in your own skin.
We would love to help in any way, shape or form, in whatever shape or form you may be in! Welcome to our blog!
