Owner of FIT4MOM Twin Cities

Hello! I'm Kayleen Beccard (you can call me Kay), proud new owner of FIT4MOM Twin Cities! I am so excited for the future of FIT4MOM Twin Cities and I can’t wait to grow our village!

I was born and raised in Omaha, NE and married my high school sweetheart. We moved to Minneapolis in August 2007 so my husband, Seth, could attend law school. We planned to move back to Omaha after he graduated, but we fell in love with the Twin Cities and have made it our home. We live in Saint Louis Park with our daughter Noelle (born September 2016) and our two Shelties, Scooter and Adele. One of our biggest draws to remain in the Twin Cities was the constant focus on fitness. The number of trails to run and bike on and the number of parks within walking distance is amazing!

While in Nebraska, I graduated with a degree in Secondary Education. When we moved to Minneapolis, I was unsure where we would be living so I decided to explore other options outside of teaching. I decided to pursue nannying. I loved being a nanny! I got to do all the fun things with my nanny kids and then return...

Stroller Strides Instructor

Hi everyone! I’m Mindy! I found Stroller Strides shortly after my family returned home from living abroad in December 2015 while I was pregnant with baby #2. I instantly found my village and was hooked! I am so excited to be teaching classes and sharing my love of Stroller Strides with other mamas!

My husband Brent and I currently live in Brooklyn Park with our 2 young sons, Elliot and Simon.

Stroller Strides and FIT4BABY Instructor and Run Club Coach

Hello! My name is Colleen Beatty, and I am mother to Finnian (Finn). I recently relocated from the Washington, D.C. area, but I am a Midwestern girl by birth. I grew up on the ridges of Southwestern Wisconsin, daughter of a teacher and an organic vegetable farmer. I am so excited to share my passion for teaching and for fitness with Fit4Mom, and if you don't find me teaching a Stroller Strides class, you'll find me hitting the trails in my running shoes.

Stroller Strides and Body Back Instructor

Hi I'm Joan! I was born and raised in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. In late 2014, my family moved to Minnesota and I sought out my “village” in the Fit4Mom Twin Cities community. I became an instructor for the franchise in February 2016 and the rest is history! I love instructing and connecting with each of the mamas who attend my classes!

I am a 2005 United States Naval Academy graduate and served almost 6 years active duty in the US Navy before leaving the service to raise my children. I went to my first Stroller Strides class in May 2011 with my then 6 week old daughter and was hooked! Since then, I have participated in Stroller Strides classes in different places I have moved. I live in Maple Grove, MN with my husband, David and my children Charlotte (6yrs), Dagny (4yrs) and Ford (6 months).

Stroller Strides and Body Back Instructor

Hi! My name is Katie Easter. I started working out with stroller strides when I was six months pregnant. In August of 2017 I began instructing classes, weeks before my son was born. Now Eli is seven months old and we’re still loving being a part of this community. In my former life, I worked as an outdoor recreation professional; leading kayak trips and snowshoe hikes, instructing pickleball, archery and fly fishing among other random activities. I also currently lead Tinkergarten classes in the Spring and Summer. If I’m outside and active, I’m stoked. I can’t wait to get outside with you all!

Stroller Strides Instructor

Hi I'm Becky! I started regularly coming to Stroller Strides classes in December of 2014. I needed to get the boys out of the house more often and needed to do something for myself, because I was just not feeling as energetic as I wanted with two active boys to chase after. I liked it -- and, the boys liked it too, so it stuck! After attending classes at the Mall of America all winter, I decided to take the training class and to become an instructor. I wanted to help moms feel as good as I did after taking care of myself with exercise!

I added running into my life in 2015 after always saying that I only run when being chased. Well, after a few 5Ks, I set a goal to run a half marathon for my 40th birthday. I completed that in February and am registered to do another in November! I recently added Run Club certification to my resume.

I was born and raised in the Twin Cities and can't imagine living anywhere else. Well, sometimes in the really cold stretches of winter, I dream about living somewhere warmer. Thinking about all of the bugs that they have in those tropical...

Run Club Coach

Hello! I'm excited to be the new FIT4MOM Twin Cities Lead Run Club Instructor! Before moving to the Twin Cities, I developed a Running Clinic for active duty airmen at Scott Air Force Base that I ran for three years. The average improvement for the airmen was almost two minutes! While this may seem impressive, these were people struggling to run 1.5 miles without stopping let alone finish it fast enough to be able to pass. Despite most being career military members, these were beginning runners. I LOVE coaching beginners - from a performance standpoint, they make huge improvements in a very short period of time, but more rewarding to me is seeing their sense of pride and accomplishment grow exponentially by race day.

Now that I'm a mom, I'm excited to bring that passion to like-minded moms in the Twin Cities...not to mention that passion of my two running buddies, Will, 3, and Anna, 11 months!
