Welcome to Fit4Mom Santa Rosa!

Hi, I'm Sequoia, mom to 5 year old Maddox. Before becoming a mom, I completed my Health, Nutrition and Fitness degree from Santa Rosa Junior College and look forward to continuing my Kinesology degree at Sonoma State. I have always loved running, fitness and all things outdoors, so becoming a Stroller Strides & Fit4Baby Instructor and co-owner in Spring of 2013, seem to be a natural fit. I am able to share my passion of an active lifestyle and take my son to work with me!

Stroller Strides has not only helped me get back in physical strength after the birth of my son, but provided me with a phenomenal community of women and children who have become my closest friends. Our workouts can be as challenging as you need them to be; there's always another mama in the group who's there to push you on days...

I am mom to Kaiya, who is 3.5-years-old and new born Lyla. I joined Stroller Strides when Kaiya was 8 weeks old, looking for a way to get back in shape and connect with other moms. It was the best decision ever! Not only do I look forward to working out, but Kaiya brings it all home and does her own version of Stroller Strides with her dolls. I love that she is learning that exercise can be fun and our family, as a whole, is living a healthier, more active lifestyle. I love our ever growing village of mamas and kiddos, both Kaiya and I have made friendships that will last a lifetime!

I am mom to 4 year old Zachary. I am passionate about fitness and staying active in all stages of life. I moved to Sonoma County almost 4 years ago, I knew no one and as a new mom I felt a little lost. I often wonder where I would be if I hadn’t found Stroller Strides and the amazing, passionate group of women I am honored to call my friends. Zac and I started striding when he was just 3 months old, now he is my little helper and loves to play “workout.” Fit4Mom is one of the most rewarding things I have ever been a part of, as both a client and an instructor. If you want to get fit, have fun with your kiddos and teach them the life long lesson of loving fitness, then you my friend have found your village. I hope to see you in class soon!

I didn't even make it through my free month before I cancelled the rest of the free month and signed up! I fell absolutely in LOVE with this group and couldn't think of any other way I'd rather spend my mornings than with some amazing mamas and their kiddos! :)

Body Back Instructor & Run Club Coach

I was born and raised right here in Santa Rosa, I graduated from SRHS and went off to college in Texas. After earning my degree I moved back to San Jose, California and married my high school sweetheart. Our sweet Brynley Maize joined our family in April of 2014 and we moved back to Santa Rosa in the spring on 2015. We bought a home that we love and we are here to stay!

I found Fit4Mom shortly after moving back and was instantly hooked and absolutely in love! I needed an outlet that made me feel great physically but also allowed me to be surrounded by an incredibly supportive village of Mom's. It's such a treat to be able to bring Brynley along to my workout and let her play with other kids after class, I love that she is growing up to see the importance of living an active lifestyle.

When I was given the opportunity to help as a Playground Captain, I jumped on it. I have a background in education and live for crafting!


Playgroup Co-Captain

I joined Stoller Strides right after my younger daughter, Kate, turned two. I also have an almost 11 year old daughter, Natalie. I joined because I needed something to get me out of the house and to mix up our days. In the beginning, it was difficult. Both Kate and I were a HOT MESS. I was in a really dark place dealing with a challenging baby/toddler and post partum depression, that I hadn't experience with Natalie, feeling alone like a I was stranded on an island and no one else knew what I was going through. I knew this wasn't rational, but it was what I was feeling at the time.

Luckily, being part of this group and with a change I made, I was able to pull out of that dark place. Within a month, I could feel the shift and was on the track back to myself.

Our Village, whether they know it or not, is a HUGE part of this accomplishment .I'm not sure where I would be had I not found this amazing group of women. Certainly, not as happy as I am now. I love that we are surrounded by moms who are encouraging and there to lift you up. Kate also loves Stroller Strides and...


Playgroup Co-Captain

I joined Stroller Strides when my youngest was a little shy of two years old. I have been on a journey to lose weight and get in shape since she turned one. I knew I needed to get exercise into my routine, but I found that difficult with 2 young girls who did not like being left in a gym daycare.

Stroller Strides has been huge for us! I love the classes and my girls love coming with me. Lilly (4) and Emily (2) get so excited to see their friends and play after class, and they love pushing me to try harder..."run mommy!" I often catch them imitating exercises from class at home. I love that they are learning that exercise is fun!
