Hi! My name is Nicole Koepke and I am so excited to join the team of Queen Creek Fit4Mom. My journey with Fit4Mom began in CO when my son Jace was just 6 weeks old. I was invited by a friend and have been enjoying classes ever since. Jace is now an energetic 3 year old and we welcomed a baby girl, Addy in November of 2016.
I was born and raised in a suburb of Seattle and moved to AZ to attend ASU. My amazing husband, Kevin and I met here and moved to CO when Jace was a month old. Kevin’s job brought us back to the Phoenix area just before Addy was born. We ended up buying a home in Eastmark and absolutely love it here. When I’m not at Stroller Strides, I love spending time outdoors with my family. We enjoy camping, hiking, playing at the pool/park and traveling. I also play co-rec softball on Friday nights.
I have always had a passion for fitness and being active. I grew up playing many sports and have run 1 marathon and 2 half marathons. I can’t wait for another race! After attending Stroller Strides for about 6 months, I had the opportunity to become an instructor in Castle Rock, CO. As a former kindergarten and 1st grade teacher, I was thrilled to have this opportunity to combine my love of fitness and teaching. I love to be silly and engage the kiddos with songs all while their mamas get in an amazing workout. It’s a win-win for everyone! I absolutely love this tribe and I’m so excited to share this wonderful journey of motherhood with all of you. I look forward to seeing you in class soon!
Hi! My name is Tara Perkins! I am wife to my hard working husband Aaron and we have our beautiful daughter Grace who is 18 months. I started my journey with FIT4MOM at Stroller Strides in Feb. 2017. As a new mom balancing hormones, my lovely daughter, husband, part time medical biller and day to day life, I felt like I was in a whirl wind. Finding a way to exercise and get myself healthy for my family while being able to bring my daughter with me and see her love to be a part of it helped to ease my mind. Finding the village of moms is an amazing bonus. I love being able to chat through the ups and downs in person each day with other moms and see all the kids milestones from week to week. It makes me look forward to each day and each workout, even if I only got an hour sleep!more
