Instructor Spotlight: Meet Ruth!

Hi, I'm Ruth, wife to Brian, mom to Calvin and Spencer. I'm originally from Portland, OR and I've also lived in Wisconsin for college and Shanghai, China, for a study abroad. I spent 10 years as a hairdresser before becoming a full-time mom. We moved to Texas from Portland in the spring of 2015, while I was 7 months pregnant with baby number two.

I grew up camping, hiking, and playing soccer and volleyball. I played soccer and ran track for Beloit College. I met my husband playing on a co-ed indoor soccer team! I love running, competition and challenging myself. I love cooking (not baking, that's all my husband. I just eat it!), travel/exploring new places, and playing board games. I love seeing the world through the eyes of my kids, I love spending time with good friends, and Harry Potter. That's me in a nutshell!

I had first heard about Fit4Mom while I was in the Northwest. A good friend of mine got involved and raved about it (she now owns the SW Portland franchise!), but I lived on the opposite side of the city, so I never went to a class with her. Fast forward to Texas with 2.5 month-old baby, 2.5 year old, and not knowing anyone. At the park I see a group of moms, kids, and strollers by the playscape. I ask if its an event, and I meet Lacey, our Austin franchise owner, who tells me all about the playdates, mom's nights out, and workouts. A few weeks later we moved to Pflugerville and I joined up! I was hooked. I had found my people! 5 months later I became an instructor, and I'm currently the instructor at Katherine Fleischer park in Wells Branch. I've made amazing friends and fantastic memories with Fit4Mom!
