Shannon moved to Long Beach in May 2012 and lives in Belmont Heights. She has 2 children, Clare (born November 2014) and Hank (on his way in October 2016). She attributes FIT4MOM Long Beach as the reason for not only getting back into pre-baby shape but also making meaningful friendships with other new moms within the community she lives in.

Shannon received her Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts and a minor in Sports Medicine from Pepperdine University. She wanted to help others through fitness/coaching and as a result she obtained her Master’s Degree in Coaching and Athletic Administration from Concordia University.

Monica lives in Belmont Heights with her husband, Dirk, and their son, Gerrit (born May 12, 2013) and their daughter, Madelyn (born December 25th, 2014). She started attending Stroller Strides classes when Gerrit was 5 months old and knew instantly that she wanted to become an instructor.

Monica earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from Cal Poly Pomona. After completing her degree, she spent a few years as a personal trainer, both at a gym and a private training studio before having to change focus and work for her family's business. She's excited to be back in the fitness field instructing classes at FIT4MOM Long Beach.


Bianca is a mother of two little guys, Zion and Abraham, and can be found running, playing basketball, baseball and playing soccer with her family. She has been apart of Fit4mom, Long Beach for over 6 years. "I love coming to Fit4mom classes because it gives me motivation to start my day strong and connect with other moms! My kids like to 'play' Stroller Strides and do exercises such as dips, push-ups and lunges together!" Bianca hopes to encourage mothers to workout with us, so that they may set a good example for healthy living for their families.


Ashley lives in Lakewood with her husband, Bill, and their daughter, Avery (May 1, 2015). Ashley joined Fit4Mom Long Beach when Avery was two months old and knew that she found her "village". "I love working out with this supportive group of mommies. Being able to start our day outside among nature, and exercise with my child present was a big advantage that Fit4Mom offered. Avery has gained many friendships too! She loves the crafts and picnics following class."

After a year of being a member, Ashley was thrilled at the opportunity to instruct and motivate other moms in Stroller Strides. She can be found at Los Cerritos Park (Bixby Knolls) singing and reading to the kiddos while the mommies are making strides in fitness.

Ashley joins Krystal Duck in planning the monthly themed play dates, field trips, and Moms Night Out.
