Our Team

I am a wife, mother, and the owner of FIT4MOM Meridian Township. My husband is Drew and I couldn't ask for a more supportive, and loving man to be on this parenting and business owning journey with. My children are Tyrian age 5, Elsie age 4, and Tristan age 2. These kiddos are why I am passionate about Fit4Mom and fitness in general. I truly believe the best gift we can give our family is being physically and emotionally fit and well. I began teaching Stroller Strides in 2011 and haven't looked back since. I quickly became certified in Body Back and Stroller Barre, surrounding myself with amazing people. On December 11th, 2015 I signed my official contract with Fit4Mom to own a franchise! I am excited to reach as many mom's as I can and give them a village where there is space to embrace themselves on this journey through motherhood!

Hi, I’m Carley originally Canadian, I recently moved to Okemos (March 2017) by way of Texas, where I had been living since 2009, for my husbands work. In University, I studied Kinesiology, and met my husband while working in the athletic building at the University. Both my husband and I have a passion for fitness and living a healthy lifestyle. I then completed my Master’s degree in Occupational Therapy and worked in a rehabilitation hospital until my Texan boy, Callum was born in November 2014.

As new stay at home mom I was missing the busy, fast paced rehabilitation setting so conducted a google search with two of my ideal goals: WORKOUT and MOM FRIENDS and came across FIT4MOM. I joined FIT4MOM Fort Worth, Texas in April 2015 and have been doing 3-5 classes/week since. The community, the workouts and the friends I have met along the way are truly amazing. I joined FIT4MOM Meridian Township shortly before I welcomed a second boy, this time a Michigander, named Keaton in April 2017. When I’m not at stroller strides you can probably find me running the streets of Okemos, perusing the aisles at Target, or in my kitchen cooking/baking healthy treats.

Hi! My name is Krista and I know you must be thinking...is that a COINCIDENCE that Abby and Krista share the same (crazy) last name or...!? And you'd be right...coincidentally we married brothers and became sisters (in law)! Apart from taking the only two available Ruonavaara men off the market (sorry ladies!), Abby and I also share a love of fitness, supporting mamas, and motherhood! In my life BK (before kids), I was a third grade teacher in NC for 9 years! As much as I loved it, I was so excited to move forward into becoming a mama!! My husband (the older brother, Geoff) is so awesome at this whole father/hubby gig that he seriously needs a gold star! When we are not attempting to raise our two daughters (Gabby-3 and Rosie-1) into model citizens/future world leaders, we love board gaming and travel! So excited you took the time to check out the website! Only a few more clicks and you'll take an awesome step for your family, and YOU that you'll never regret!!

"My husband, son and I recently moved to Michigan from Arizona and I was looking for a way to get connected with other moms and also get back into a regular fitness routine. I remembered my doctor in Phoenix raving about Stroller Strides so I decided to check out our local FIT4MOM and I am so glad I did! It is the perfect fit for my family and I in this phase of life. Aside from Stroller Strides, I also enjoy photography, running, cooking, hiking and crafts!"more

I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I have been living in the U.S for 14 years. I'm a mother of two beautiful girls, Lorena (5 years old) and Lyla (7 months). I have been married to my wonderful husband, Ron, for over 10 years. Some of my passions are working out, running and doing crafts. I love spending time with my family and I feel very fortunate that I can be a stay at home mom. Like other moms, I understand how hard it is to find time to workout and raise a family. That is why I am very happy to be a part of the Fit4Mom family and help other mothers find time to workout and achieve their fitness goals. I am certified in First Aid and on my way to my certification in CPR!
