Hello, my name is . . .

Brittany Gerstenslager

 

Fitness Philosophy:  Everyone should have options for working out, and families should be able to live a healthy and fit life without sacrificing precious family time!

Interests: Planning fun family activities and supplemental learning opportunities for my kiddos! Learning new ways to get fit or create healthy habits!

What do you love about BrittFit: I love the connections made between families and watching families grow in friendship to raise their kids together! My favorite part about teaching these classes is watching the littles imitate their adults!

What to expect from your instruction: Modifications for every skill and activity level and probably lots of 30 Rock and Brooklyn Nine-Nine quotes. (HA!)
