My name is Sandy and I´m the owner and instructor for Fit4Mom Alpine, CA. I have a master’s degree in Marketing and I am a Stroller Strides and Fit4Baby certified instructor. We moved to Alpine from San Diego in 2013 to get away from the city and raise a healthy and happy family. I am a proud mother of a sweet baby girl and happy wife of an amazing husband. We are also expecting and anxiously awaiting our baby boy's arrival in February 2018! After our daughter Erin was born in September 2015, I decided to quit my Job of over 12 years and become a stay home mom. It was not an easy decision at first since I have always considered myself a career orientated person but I knew it was going to be all worth it to raise our children with our values.
After a few months at home I started getting overwhelmed with all that motherhood represents so I started looking for activities that I could do with my baby. Since most of my friends did not have kids yet or they were working l discovered Stroller Strides. I was so excited to have found it because it was exactly what I was looking for! It allowed me to be with my baby, workout, and make amazing new mommy friends all at the same time. The other moms welcomed me with open arms and it truly changed my life! Not only did I start feeling better, but it was soooo nice to have the support from other moms who shared exactly what I was going through in this stage of life. I had found my “tribe”!
I decided to start Fit4Mom Alpine location because our charming little town didn´t offer anything similar and I wanted to share my amazing experiences with my neighbors and help build OUR community. I´m so very excited to represent this amazing program and meet all the beautiful mommies and kiddos in our area!!!more
Hi beautiful mamas! My name is Lauren Garcia and I am a new mommy to a beautiful little girl, Avery James. I was born and raised in sunny San Diego and my husband and I recently moved to Alpine to start our family. We love spending our free time with family including our little dog, Amiga. You can usually find us at the beach or doing something active. I grew up playing competitive soccer and ended up playing Division 1 soccer at University of California, Riverside. After college, I found Crossfit and fell in love with the competitiveness and the community. I have competed in many local Crossfit competitions in and around surrounding areas of San Diego. I loved everything about Crossfit!
Then I got pregnant… I had a rough pregnancy of extreme nausea, exhaustion and heartburn. You name the symptom, I had it. So my Crossfit days were limited. I did small workouts at home and daily walks, but I knew I was missing something… the community. Once I was cleared for exercise postpartum, I found Stroller Strides in Alpine. I fell in LOVE after the first class! Now I feel like I can finally call Alpine “home” because of all the amazing mommies in our Village. The women I am surrounded by at Stroller Strides empower me and give me the confidence to be a great first time mommy! “Behind every successful woman is a TRIBE of other successful women, who have her back!”more
Hey Guys! My name is Lana Breceda, i am a Mommy to 3 handsome boys who i love more than anything in the world. I was born and raised here in San Diego and recently bought my first home here in Alpine with my high school sweetheart who i married just a few years out of high school. I have been blessed enough to stay home with all my children ( which was very important to my husband and I ) but with our recent move to Alpine and not many friends with children near by, i started to feel a little secluded and not much time for myself. When i discovered there was a program in my community that allowed you to exercise with your children i thought i would give it a shot. Let me tell you, the first class i went to i fell in LOVE! not only was i able to get an AMAZING workout with my little ones with me( who loved the playgroups after) , i also felt open arms and hearts with the other moms by my side. i felt as if i had been in this group forever. I am so happy and excited to now be a certified stroller strides instructor and love being able to motivate and lift other Mamas up just like they did to me when i first joined. The FIT4MOM program now lies close to my heart as well as the women who stride beside me.more
Hello! My name is Becky Phillips and I am the mommy to a
beautiful toddler, Charis Rayne. I grew
up in Orange County and moved to San Diego when I got married in 2010. I met my husband at Chapman University and we
moved down here so we could both work at his family painting business. I decided this year to become a stay at home
mom to spend more time focusing on my daughter than trying to balance working
from home with a toddler running around vying for my attention. I am excited to be the Playgroup Captain at Fit4mom Alpine to plan the weekly Playgroup, monthly Mom’s Night Out and special events. I think, as
mothers, we are always giving all our energies to our children and husbands and
need a break every once in a while!
I love to travel, cook, bake and read. My daughter already has a few stamps in her passport and I am always researching my next vacation. I enjoy cooking dinner for my family almost every night. Making food with love and sitting down as a family is super important to me. I couldn’t wait until Charis was old enough to eat solid food so she could eat with us. Luckily, she is a great eater and loves food as much as I do! I spoil myself (and my family) by baking sweets from scratch, which is why I am so glad I found Fit4mom. I love being able to workout with my baby while getting to know other moms. I can’t wait to meet you all and your beautiful babies!more
