Jessica Ripple-Felgate

Fit4Mom Certified Instructor
Stroller Barre * Fit4Baby * Stroller Strides

We like to call Jessica our Body Back "Lifer" and when you meet her, you'll see why. As one of our longest running Stroller Striders, she is in inspiring physical shape and has amazing endurance. As the mother of two boys, Spencer (6) and Blake (3), Jessica joined Stroller Strides when Spencer was a mere six-weeks old!

Born in Boise, she went to college in Connecticut and spent most of her adult life in New York City as an actor/dancer and model. She had just moved back to Boise as a new mom who knew almost no one when she heard of Stroller Strides. Stroller Strides allowed her to get out of the house and take care of herself while connecting to other mothers. She has stayed with the program for over five years now, including Fit4Baby while she was pregnant with Blake and multiple sessions of Body Back (See what we mean? LIFER).

Jessica loves not only what she gets out of it, but she loves that her boys are so influenced by Stroller Strides and view exercise as a fun activity to do with friends, rather than a chore to do grudgingly. Her boys have made a great community of friends as well through Stroller Strides!

Jessica is so excited to now be part of the Fit4Mom team as a Stroller Barre and Fit4Baby instructor -- after years of being on the receiving end of classes, she loves teaching! For her Stroller Barre classes, she will be digging into her dancer past to bring out everyone's inner ballerina, so make sure you try one of her classes - you'll be sore in places you never knew existed. She loves teaching her Fit4Baby classes and helping new and veteran mamas prepare for their baby.

When Jessica has free time, fitness is her priority. You can often find her working out, going to stroller strides or participating in Body Back sessions (can you say, Body Back "Lifer"?)

"This community of mothers is so inclusive, supportive and inspiring. Some of my dearest friends have been made through this village and my life is so enriched because of these women who share the same need for connection and friendship as well as a desire to live a healthy, active life. Without Stroller Strides, I would not be as happy or fulfilled as I am."
