    I've been a part of FIT4MOM Olympia since 2012 and it absolutely changed my life. I struggled with postpartum depression and FIT4MOM Olympia helped me gain an amazing supportive village as well as be healthy inside and out. I don't have a fitness background, but FIT4MOM showed me how much fun and rewarding working out can be. I jumped at the opportunity to help other people the way FIT4MOM Olympia helped me.

    Outside of running FIT4MOM Olympia; I love to hike, garden, scrapbook, paint and watch movies.

    I was born in South Texas and moved to the northwest to go to school in Oregon. We moved to Washington for my husband’s job. I got a degree in art with emphasis in photography, sculpture & painting.

    I am a Mom to 2 crazy little boys, Garrett & Wyatt. My husband, Jason, and I run a small hobby farm with beef cows, ducks, a huge garden and 2 geese.

    I first became involved with Fit4mom in West Seattle, when my first son Henry was about 4 months old. Over the next year I fell so much in love with the program - the sisterhood, the great workouts, the social and emotional development support it provides the kiddos - that I became an instructor myself. When my family moved back to Olympia (where I grew up) I jumped at the chance to become involved with the Olympia Fit4mom village!

    Before becoming a mom I was a clinical social worker providing child and family therapy. I believe so strongly in the importance of community - especially for women with young children! - and am so grateful for the Fit4Mom community.

    I am mom to Henry who is 3 and August who is 1.

    I grew up in Olympia and I first discovered FIT4MOM and Stroller Strides in April of 2016 when my daughter was about 5 months old and I’ve been attending classes regularly ever since. My husband, Rand is a pilot so I spend a lot of time solo parenting our two children Avery (2015) and Gavin (2018) and the Village has been and continues to be such a great support network for me. I completed the certification to become a Stroller Strides instructor in October 2018 and I am so excited to continue my journey with FIT4MOM. I really enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, running and healthy living in general.

    I was born and raised in Alaska, instilling a free spirited love of the mountainous wilderness and the mental strength required to thrive in the unforgiving winters.
    After starting my family,
    I began attending stroller strides in 2012 when my daughter turned one, and I created wonderful bonds with the other moms and still keep in contact to this day. I moved with my husband and two small children to Minnesota, where I became a member of the YMCA and first fell in love with TRX straps as they helped me feel stronger and shed the baby weight while having a blast!
    When we moved to the PNW, I decided to pursue my passion for fitness by becoming a personal trainer and teaching TRX classes. I am passionate about using positivity to motivate others while helping them set and reach their goals. Whether in small training groups or personal one-on-one sessions, I strive to keep you motivated to your particular fitness goals while having FUN!

    My free time is spent enjoying my children in their various sports and activities. My hobbies include attending Mixxedfit classes at the YMCA, gardening, cooking healthy meals, smoking salmon & jerky, camping, and painting and hiding rocks with my family.

    I first discovered FIT4MOM in early 2018 when my daughter was just a few months old. Stroller Strides started as an excuse to get out of the house a few days a week
    and combat the isolation I was feeling as a new mom and quickly turned into a family. Now as an instructor, I’m looking forward to helping foster the same
    sense of sisterhood through motherhood that has helped support me these last two years and continue positive role modeling for the next generation! Aside from my family, I have a deep passion for backpacking and mountaineering, traveling, and good food.
    I’m a mom to Dylyn, Max, and Henry, and wife to my climbing partner and best friend, Kyle.

  • Danielle Diedrick

    I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon and came to the Olympia area after my husband and i got married in 2014. After my son was born i found the need for more support and to get us out of the house and at the urging of a friend came to a free Mother's Day event.
    What started as an excuse for an outing and a good workout turned into a community for myself and my son. I had never met such a great group of non judgmental moms who really do desire to be there for eachother.
    After becoming the social media manager for Fit4Mom Olympia I'm excited to get the word out about our moms, the workout, and all we have to offer.
    I am mom to Charlie who is 3, Freddy who is 7months, and wife to my best friend Peter.
