Meet Amy Hopkins, one of our very own mamas in the village! She has been a Wisconsin resident her whole life and is a mom of two spunky kiddos! Living in Lake Country, they feel very lucky to be surrounded by so many beautiful lakes, hiking locations and the fun of being a part of a community.
Amy started Fit4MOM after meeting Tracy at her work as a dental hygienist. Shortly after joining the village she decided to become a stay at home mom. This was a hard decision for her but allowed more time with her family, making healthy meals a priority, training for her first marathon and now a Fit4MOM instructor! She is certified in pre and postnatal fitness and completed live training in Chicago through Fit4MOM.
Staying fit and healthy has always been a part of her life, as she’s been a competitive track and cross-country runner through her school years and into college, participated in many 5K, 10K and half marathons, along with several barre and HIT training programs. Amy looks forward to not only motivating and helping our village be their best, but hopes to help bring some nutritional guidance as well. She started her journey to healthy living several years ago, but just recently after her daughter was born she became a vegetarian. This change for her family had spun and whole new way of looking at food as fuel. She hopes to help these strong women come up with great after workout snacks, kids grab and go’s and healthy meals!
Lindsay Hansen moved to Wauwatosa in the Spring of 2015 and is an energetic mama of two young boys. Lindsay has always been a relatively active individual, however, during the second trimester of her second pregnancy, Lindsay re-discovered her passion for maintaining an active and healthier lifestyle. After personally benefitting from a regular pre-and post-natal fitness routine, Lindsay is so excited be part of a team that helps other mamas do the same!
Prior to moving to Wisconsin, Lindsay has worked throughout the US supporting children and families in many different educational environments; it only seems appropriate that she now is combining her love of fitness with her passion for supporting healthy families (especially moms and babies!!!). As a self-proclaimed ‘life long athlete’, Lindsay’s favorite activities include: yoga, running, golf, and hiking. She is always ready for a new adventure and thrilled to become a part of the Fit4Mom villagemore
Tracy Joynt is the owner of FIT4MOM Brookfield/Tosa. In December 2014, Tracy became a first time mom to son Jack and realized choosing between working out or spending time with Jack was a challenge. She wanted to find a way to do them together. Her passion for fitness started when she trained for her first marathon back in 2006. Since then, she completed several other marathons, triathlons and fitness certifications. Running, biking, circuit and strength training have all been a part of her fitness routine for years, her new role as a mom got her thinking about how she could fit this all into her new schedule. This led her to FIT4MOM.
As a current resident of Brookfield, Tracy wanted to bring something to the community that she felt was lacking for moms who have a passion for fitness and motherhood. Tracy is now certified in pre and postnatal fitness, and has completed her ACE Personal Training certificate. She can’t wait to bring her passion and knowledge for fitness to moms in the community!more
