Amanda attended a Stroller Strides free week in January of 2013 and never looked back! She has two children: Cullen - born in April of 2012, and Rory - born in April of 2015. After years of being the franchise playgroup captain, she went through training to join the Fit4Mom Western Wake instructor team in June of 2017. Her Body Back addiction began in January of 2017 and she recently added that to her instructor certifications! Amanda grew up in the small town of Clinton, NY and attended college and grad school in the Albany area before moving south in June of 2006. She holds a master's degree in education and taught middle school social studies in Apex for two years before returning to grad school at NC State and adding a degree in International Studies.
Amanda enjoys running, traveling, reading, and intense jigsaw puzzles (though she has mainly focused on the running since having children). She heads to her hometown every July to run the Boilermaker 15K alongside other members of her family and ran her first half marathon in 2016. Amanda loves the feeling she gets from working hard during Stroller Strides and Body Back workouts and enjoys meeting other moms with a passion for physical fitness!
Kimberly began attending Stroller Strides in January 2015 when her son, Bryce, was two months old, and was hooked after just one class. She loves the network of friends she has made since joining Stroller Strides, in addition to the challenging workouts. Bryce loves going to Stroller Strides as well, as he has friends that he loves to see and play with after each class.
Kimberly has a passion for personal wellness and is an avid runner. She completed the Marine Corps Marathon in 2013, along with numerous half marathons over the years as well. Kimberly has her Doctorate in Physical Therapy and has been drawn to physical fitness and teaching through her experiences working at outpatient physical therapy clinics. Kimberly was raised in Upstate New York, but moved to the Raleigh area from Northern Virginia in 2014 with her husband, John. Kimberly is devoted to her family and loves being a mom more than she ever could have imagined. Kimberly looks forward to meeting you and helping you meet your fitness goals!
Julie is mother to two energetic boys, Isaac (6) and Sam (3). After Sam was born, Julie briefly participated in Stroller Strides before returning to work full time. Looking for a new challenge in January 2015, she signed up for her first half marathon and began training with the Running Mamas. It was just what she needed, she had rediscovered this awesome group of moms whom she desperately needed, she had found her village!
