Team Spotlight - December 2022

This month, the spotlight is on....

We have such a crazy amazing, dedicated and talented team of instructors and playgroup captains here at FIT4MOM | MOCO + FREDERICK. I love giving everyone the opportunity to get to know a little more about each one of them, and this month we're going to continue our instructor spotlight with.....Liz Peluso!

Liz is one of those people who is sure to inspire anyone who meets her. She's strong, she's loyal, she's hardworking, and she's an incredible team member and mom. Her classes are well thought out, she's so good at incorporating our little ones into workouts, and when she's teaching, you know you're going to hear her since she can amplify her voice like nobody's business! It's been so special to get to know Liz and see her family grow over the past few years, and I'm just so thankful she's part of this team! If you haven't been to one of Liz's classes, do it! You won't be sad about it, and you'll certainly get in a great workout!

Now read on and get to know more about Liz below!

Thanks for all you do, Liz!

Who are the members of your family?

Where can people find you, i.e. what’s your role within FIT4MOM | MOCO + FREDERICK?

Tell us your {entire} FIT4MOM story!

I started Fit4mom in the summer of 2018. My daughter was 6 weeks old. I had purchased a summer teacher pass; a fellow colleague had mentioned it to me before I went on maternity leave. Fast forward, I now teach stroller strides and attend class with my daughter who is now 4 and my son who is 2.

What is your favorite exercise/activity to teach?

I love squats and cardio moves.


What do you love about being part of the #dreamteam?

I love being able to work out and connect with other moms that have similar interests.


How has FIT4MOM or this village helped you during such unusual times or beyond?

Fit4mom has helped me by being a constant. I can always count on this village of moms for advice, laughs, and fun. I love leaving class and feeling good mentally and physically. It is more than just a workout.


What’s your why? Why do you keep doing what you do?

My why is my kids, my husband and myself. A mom often forgets to prioritize herself, in order to be the best for your family- you have to fill your own cup and meet your own needs. Fit4mom helps me prioritize myself.


What is a fun fact that our village may not already know about you?

I have been skydiving but am deathly afraid of roller coasters!
