Meet our Yorktown Center Instructor - Karen Gravlin

Meet Karen Gravlin. Karen has been taking FIT4MOM classes since December of 2015. She started with us at our Fit4Baby pre-natal class as a client and loved our franchise so much she jumped on to our instructor team! We are so excited to share Karen's rocking energy at our Saturday Yorktown classes with Our Village!

  • Why did you decide to become a FIT4MOM instructor? When I took Fit4Baby I thought about becoming an instructor, I really love the energy in that class. After my son was born and it was time to go back to work I really wanted to stay involved with Fit4Mom but my full time schedule wouldn't allow for me to continue with any of the Stroller classes. So I approached Lesley about teaching weekend classes.
  • Tell us something we don't know about you: I am a HUGE Denver Bronco's fan. My dad has season tickets and we go home for at least one game every year. I have Mile High Stadium seats in my house & we went to Canton, OH to see John Elway's induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Super Bowl Champions baby...
  • What's your favorite part about being a mom? The hardest?I love how motherhood has changed me. Being a mom has made me a better person, a kinder person. The birth of my daughter gave me a completely different outlook on life and a new appreciation for my body. Being the mother of two now is much harder, I don't feel like I am giving either of my kids (or my husband!) the full attention that I'd like to but I am doing my best; they are safe, happy and loved and they probably don't even know that I feel stretched so thin.
  • What's been your favorite Mom's Night Out? The only one that I have been too (so far!) at Ellyn's the week before I went back to work!
