Our Team

I'm a mom to Lucas, 11, and Victoria, 8, and have been a part of the Stroller Strides family since 2008. Fitness has always been a big part of my life. When Victoria was born, I found Stroller Strides through a friend, and with the help of my husband, I opened a franchise in Boca Raton, FL (where they still hold classes everyday under the ownership of one of my former instructors), and successfully ran the business and taught class for almost 6 years. While running the franchise I discovered my true passion: helping moms through motherhood. From there I took a plunge and went back to school to become a nurse. With the support of my family and an amazing crew of instructors, I graduated and became a Labor & Delivery RN, and started working in a community hospital in the area right after graduation. Now, I'm also in the process of choosing a school to pursue my dream of becoming a midwife. Everything was going smoothly, until life threw a curveball: my husband's job transferred us across states to Charlotte, and so, I was faced the tough decision of passing on my business, my passion. But thankfully, Charlotte FIT4MOM accepted me as an instructor. I am now working at CMC main in the Labor and Delivery and High Risk Antepartum Units, so you might see me around the hospital if you have your baby there! I am a runner and avid yogi; and juggling a career, kids and husband while trying to pursue my own dreams, staying fit and helping others are my daily struggle and also the biggest things I am grateful for. Helping moms reach their goals and dreams brings me such satisfaction and happiness, I'm glad I ever became an instructor and part of the family!

Hi! I am so glad you have found us! My name is Ashley Coleman and I am the mom to 3 amazing kiddos: 1 boy (Tripp,5) and 2 girls (Lillian,3 and Scarlett,1). I have always had a passion for health and fitness since my days as a competitive gymnast for 20 years. As I have gotten older that passion has only gotten stronger with a minor in exercise physiology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and a personal trainer certification from ACE. Making fitness fun has always been important to me because I have found that if it is fun you are more likely to do it! Once I had my first baby 5 years ago I found myself in a rut because I didn't know HOW to exercise with a baby. I had a hard time putting me first in order to get in that workout that I desperately needed and wanted. Luckily after I had my 2nd child I stumbled across Fit4Mom Stroller Strides and was instantly hooked! I realized it WAS possible to take the time for ME to exercise while also making it fun for my child and still be present. I quickly found myself back at my pre-pregnancy weight and energy level and was a Fit4Mom fan for life. That lead to me becoming certified as an instructor where I taught for about 2 years in Carlsbad, CA. Once my family permanently relocated back to NC, I was on a quest to remain connected with Fit4Mom and it just so happened I was able to become a franchisee to help spread the love of Fit4Mom. All of our programs are amazing and there is truly something for everyone! Pregnant? Awesome...we have Fit4Baby! Have young kiddos and want to have other mom friends to hang with? StrollerStrides! Are you a mom of ANY age and just want to feel like YOU again? Body Back is perfect for you! The support and love you find in all of these programs is unparalleled and I would love to meet you. Trust me when I say you are worth it!
