Owner of FIT4MOM St. Johns/North St. Augustine, Certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Body Back, Fit4Baby, & Run Club Fitness Instructor

Hi! I'm Danielle Weaver, and I LOVE the FIT4MOM Village!

I am mother to a precocious little girl named Charlotte and wife to an amazing husband named Paul. After battling postpartum depression, I found this Village when I wanted to find a community of women and friends to share the journey of motherhood with, while at the same time continuing to treat myself to great workouts.

I am a Registered Nurse, so I truly believe that health is an important part of motherhood- physical, emotional, and mental. I first became an instructor to give back to the Village since it has done so much for me, which has led me to the incredible opportunity to lead our Village as its owner.

In my "free time" (ha!), I enjoy running, reading, acting in community theater productions, and binge-watching shows with my husband. I'm also a HUGE sports fan- go Gators!

Certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Body Back, & Fit4Baby Instructor

Mom to Brendan who is 3 years old.

My FIT4MOM story began in 2016 at the grand opening of Stroller Strides at SJGCC. We had moved to St. Augustine several months earlier and we didn't know anyone! I was looking for something where I could meet other moms, have play dates for my son and get back in shape. Stroller Strides was the perfect solution! I went to the grand opening and was welcomed with open arms by Karina and all the other moms attending! I felt like I finally found my people! I joined at the grand opening and the rest is history! Over the last year I have attended Stroller Strides classes 3-4 times a week and have completed 2 Body Back sessions. I have never felt stronger and more confident. FIT4MOM has changed my life (and my family's) which is why I decided to become an instructor. Fitness has played a huge part in the happiness of my family and friendships that I have made that I want to give back and bring this passion to all of you!

Certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, & Fit4Baby Fitness Instructor

My name is Jodie Calain. I have a four year old son, named Jack. I never could have predicted in my wildest dreams that I would ever become a fitness instructor, but here I am. I was never athletic or really very active in my formative years. After the birth of my son at age 36, I find myself miserable, isolated and weighing over 230lbs. I was in desperate need of finding myself again. FIT4MOM helped me overcome some of the last hurdles of my post partum depression by allowing me to be an active participant in an amazing village of women all going through, and overcoming, the same trials of motherhood I was experiencing. And as a side benefit I lost 50+lbs! So, when I moved to Florida in 2016, I immediately looked for my tribe, and found it with the FIT4MOM St. Johns/North St. Augustine, FL ladies. I'm so excited to be a part of this team and having the opportunity to give back by helping other mommas

Certified Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, & Fit4Baby Instructor

I am excited to be apart the FIT4MOM team! I am a mom to almost 2 year old, Reid, and pregnant with our second, a baby girl! I have been married to my husband Kevin for going on 5 years. He is a Fire Fighter and Paramedic for the county.

I have been working in fitness and wellness since 2005. While studying Health and Exercise Science in college, I started teaching yoga and fell in love with instructing. This has led me to certify in not only yoga but also pilates, barre, cycle and become a certified personal trainer and running coach. I work full time managing a corporate fitness center and have always taught classes on the side.

Since my son was born, I found that it became too hard to continue teaching classes due to my husband's crazy fire/rescue schedule and lack of child care. There was also a level of guilt leaving my child to teach since I already miss time with him while working. FIT4MOM has given me the opportunity to combine my love of teaching and connecting through fitness with spending time with my child and meeting other awesome mamas which can be so...

Certified Stroller Strides & Fit4Baby Instructor

Hello, Mamas! I am Christina, mother to Elliot - a wild, exuberant, and silly little boy. Without a doubt, nothing has ever changed my life like motherhood. Most of these changes were expected - extraordinary love, poopy diapers, spit up, etc. However, some changes were unexpected - my battle with postpartum depression/anxiety and my own personal fitness journey. I found FIT4MOM through a Stroller Strides open house in my neighborhood in May of 2017. Exercise never having been a constant in my life before, I was quite surprised to find myself hooked and signing up for a membership after my first class. I had never had such an immediate feeling of belonging and camaraderie as I did during my first class with FIT4MOM. In years past, my husband would have to coerce me into going to the gym, now I found myself not even questioning whether Elliot and I would attend class every morning, then I found that class was sometimes the highlight of my day and then I found myself signing up for almost every class my franchise was offering. After about a year, I realized I was in the best...

Hi mamas!

I recently moved here with my husband and two kiddos, Sofia (8) and Ronin (3) from Norfolk, VA, where I previously taught Body Back and Stroller Strides. My love for Fit4mom started after I had my daughter, while I was on maternity leave and it has been a part of my world ever since! I adore teaching classes as much as I love taking them :) I’m super excited to be apart of Fit4Mom St. Johns/North St. Augustine!

Village Coordinator

I'm a Colorado native that moved to Jacksonville two and a half years ago with my husband, Mark. Before moving here, I enjoyed all types of outdoor activities; camping and hiking the Rocky Mountains, in the summers, snowboarding and sledding during the winters. In the fall, I like to enjoy a nice cup of hot tea and eat my favorite bowl of soup pho. People think that I have been an avid runner for years, but I actually didn't start running until four and a half years ago. When we arrived in Jacksonville, I didn't know what to expect and wasn't sure how to meet others. That changed when I met my amazing neighbors, joined a Groovaroo group, and met the wonderful people at F4M. Staying active with a little one was not easy, so I made it a priority. Joining F4M has allowed me to accomplish that goal. In addition, to finding a wonderful village of moms and friends. Outside of being a mother and F4M, I love cooking and crafting. I also like to challenge myself and take on DIY projects.

Sincerely,

Cislaim or Gigi
