Hey girls! My name is Amanda Hurst. I am originally from Florida, but was raised in Illinois. I ventured back down south for college where I met my husband, Chris, while attending UF to become an elementary school teacher. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls named Kara and Kina. Kara and I started Stroller Strides in April, 2013 when she was almost 8 months old. I was hooked from the second I started! Where else can you get a great workout while meeting other like-minded mamas and have your child along for the ride?! I taught kindergarten for almost 10 years and now am looking forward to the opportunity to combine my passion for fitness, love of motherhood and art of teaching into one terrific experience! Aside from being a mother, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, crafting, cooking, couponing, watching movies, shopping and traveling.
