Carissa Olds

I’m Carissa, mama to Michael Emmett, dog Goose and wife to amazing Jeff. Before being a stay-at-home mama, I worked in neurogenetic research at Seattle Children’s Hospital, ran half-marathons, played volleyball, rock climbed and could always be found outdoors. While some of this is still part of my life, the Mama part now comes first.

I’ve always been an athlete and have loved fitness. One of my favorite gifts as a child was a “Get in Shape, Girl!” fitness kit. I would pretend to be a workout queen and here I am, thirty-something years later, no longer pretending. When I was pregnant, I found myself exhausted and in need of some mommy connections. I found Fit4Baby and was hooked! It was exactly the emotional and physical boost I needed (even my husband noticed how much happier I was after working out at Fit4Baby). After having a particularly rough postpartum recovery, I knew I needed to get back to my community of mamas. With baby in tow, I tried my first Stroller Strides workout and felt right at home. It was so nice to be among other moms, both new and seasoned, trying their best for themselves and their kids.

I love how FIT4MOM allows us to work hard in front of our little ones, being examples of health, strength and perseverance. I am excited to continue my fitness journey and am honored to be a class instructor within such an incredible organization. I am so grateful to be a part of such a precious time in your family’s life. Cheers to motherhood!!!
Sorry, we don't have any schedule info for this month.
