Our Team

Physical fitness has always been an integral part of my life. As a child I participated in many sports and eventually earned a soccer scholarship to The University of Incarnate Word. After graduating from college I realized that physical fitness was more than recreational it was necessary for my mental health. As I started to plan my career and my family I knew two things. First I wanted to stay home with my children and second I wanted to own my own business. In July of 2007, 5 months after my oldest daughter was born and two weeks after moving to Los Angeles I joined Stroller Strides. It was such a great outlet for me at that time. I was living in Los Angeles with no friends or family. Stroller Stride created the community I was missing. Eventually we moved back home to San Antonio and in May of 2008 I opened my own Fit4Mom franchise. Being a franchise owner to Fit4mom has been such a blessing in more ways than I ever could of imagined. It is about more than physical fitness. It is about being healthy role models for our families.

When I decided to become a stay at home mom with Jackson, I knew it was incredibly important to find time for me. Everyone says that, but it can be hard to put into practice. As soon as Jackson received his 2 month shots, I was itching to find something to do with other moms! That’s when I found Stroller Strides and knew it was something special. It was perfect, and it was just what I needed for my “me time”. Working to get back into shape while singing to my baby, it was exactly what I was looking for. As much as I loved the workout, I also found a group of amazing moms who I could turn to for anything, which every single mom needs. This is what drove my desire to teach- helping to create a connection and bond with other moms. Motherhood can be isolating, and I hope to continue fostering a community where all moms feel welcome, especially after the long, sleepless nights.

I discovered Stroller Strides one day when I was running through Brackenridge Park with my daughter and saw this long line of energetic mothers and their kids pass by. I knew I had to be part of it, and a couple days later I took my first class and was hooked! Stroller Strides was exactly what I was looking for as a stay at home mother. It combines three of my favorite hobbies, fitness, friends, and fun outdoors, and an added plus, my daughter and new baby boy benefit from all of these as well! Stroller Strides has become a major part of our daily routine, and my daughter is excited to hang out with all of her fellow stroller buddies. The ladies I have met through Stroller Strides have become some of my most cherished friends. They are the village of mothers I go to to share the daily excitement and struggles of motherhood, whether during a jog at class, the playground after, or over a much needed glass of wine at a mother’s night out. Over my time in Stroller Strides I have grown from attending one day a week, to three-six days a week, and then eventually became the play date captain at Brackenridge Park. One of my other passions in life is teaching, which I did for eleven years before deciding to stay at home when my daughter was born. I was excited when the opportunity arose for me to become a Stroller Strides instructor. I am overjoyed that I get to provide the same outlet that was given me, an opportunity to get out of the house for a great workout, with a great group of women, and fun for baby as well! I now look forward to raising my son surrounded by so much love and support in our "village"!

Since then she has loved every aspect of the Fit4Mom community—from the amazing workouts to the friendships formed with other moms. Genevie now teaches StrollerBarre at Phil Hardberger and O.P. Schabel parks. Her favorite aspect of barre is the ability to work the core during all exercises, while also focusing on the mind body connection barre exercises challenge each person to make. She truly believes barre is a unique total body workout where you feel the burn as your muscles are lengthened and toned by each exercise. She also enjoys being goofy and providing fun for baby activities for the little ones in her classes. In addition to teaching her weekly StrollerBarre classes, Genevie is currently involved in BodyBack, StrollerStrides and Run Club. She is a San Antonio native and has a B.S. in Neuroscience from Baylor University and a Master’s of Public Administration from the University of Memphis.

Originally from Virginia, I worked in public education in Houston, TX for 15 years before moving to San Antonio in 2016. I found FIT4MOM as soon as I moved here when I went looking for a new running group. It has been a great way to keep up my running and be part of a mom community even though my kids aren't little anymore. Since July of 2017 I have managed digital marketing for FIT4MOM North San Antonio and am loving it!
