Tara originally hails from Iowa, moved to Boston for 13 years, then moved to Greensboro in 2014 shortly after the birth of her second daughter. Now, with a three and five year old, she is loving every aspect of having FIT4MOM in her life. Tara has a degree in Nutrition Science and Policy, and in addition to her educational background, Tara has been a competitive runner since high school, and finds happiness being outdoors, exploring new routes, and running with friends, old and new!
The biggest draw which compelled Tara to start this program is the Village aspect of FIT4MOM. She believes we can thrive by working together through this journey of motherhood, which can be challenging, exciting, hilarious, exhausting, and character-building! After a morning spent working out hard with our kids, Tara believes moms will be inspired, invigorated, and ready to tackle the day at work, at home, and everywhere in between.Certifications: Prenatal and Postnatal Instructor for FIT4MOM Stroller Strides®, Fit4Baby®, & Body Back®; FIT4MOM Certified Running Coach; American Red Cross First Aid; Adult; Child, & Infant CPR
Liz was born in New Jersey but raised in Easton, Pennsylvania – home of the Crayola Crayon Factory! Liz and her husband, Ryan, moved to North Carolina in 2011 and welcomed their son, Harrison, in 2014 and daughter, Lillian, in 2016. Liz played Division I basketball at American University in Washington, DC, and after graduating, worked in the athletic department at the University of Delaware as the Director of Basketball Operations and then as the Assistant Director of Sports Marketing.
As an athlete, Liz exercised almost every day her entire life, but after children, struggled to find a consistent workout that was challenging, offered variety, and could be done with her babies! Enter FIT4MOM! Liz was so excited to find a group that combined everything she was looking for – camaraderie and support from other moms, a tough but fun workout each and every class, and LOTS of fun playdates and interactions for the kids! Liz enjoyed being a participant in the class so much that she trained to become certified to teach Stroller Strides.
Liz has a lifelong passion for fitness, sport, and truly living an overall healthy lifestyle and hopes to bring that passion to #allthemoms! Liz loves being an instructor and providing mamas with the opportunity to experience a great workout and connect with other moms. Just as importantly, Liz believes that we are truly setting an example for our children by showing them what it means to be active and healthy at a young age, which is quite possibly one of the most important life lessons we can teach them!
