Meet Your Instructor: Maddy Wasserman

If you haven't taken Maddy's Signature class yet, you are missing out on some serious fun.  Here's a little more about her...including a mysterious story about winning "best dressed" at a taco festival?  Ummm, we promise to get our hands on that picture.

Hometown- Ashland, Oregon

Current location- Williamsburg

What is your background-  In 2005 I attended massage school at the Santa Barbara Body Therapy Institute in California. The following year I moved back to Oregon where I received a Bachelors degree in Communication and Culture while working full time for a Brewery start up. I spent 10+ years in the hospitality industry opening and running restaurants in Bend, Oregon and during that time I became a doula, I was trained through DONA (Doulas of North America) in 2010.  

In 2011 I became a certified Barre3 instructor and have been teaching group fitness for the past seven years.  In 2015 I trained with ICEA (International Childbirth Education Association)  to become a Childbirth Educator. And as of 2018, I am now a certified Prenatal and Postpartum Fitness Specialist. 

What do you do when you don't teach at FPC- When I am not at FPC I am attending births, reading books or spending time with the people I love!

What inspires you- My clients! I love getting to know little tidbits about the people I am working with for inspiration of what they need in class.

Describe your FPC Signature class-  Curated with safety, driven by music, and full of education. 

What do you want to be when you grow up? A badass mama!

Current favorite song- Passionfruit (feat. Denham) - By The Golden Pony (It's a Drake remix!)

If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be and why- A wolf. I’m a leader and feel best with a crew of loving & like minded people, AKA my Wolf Pack. 

Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you- In 2011 I won "Best Dressed" at the Arizona Taco Festival, the prize was a 5' tall trophy with a taco on top! (Now I bet you want a pic...TBD)

 

FPC Loves Music

 

Gone are the days of working out to the "soothing" sounds of singing whales during pregnancy.  Why shouldn't we be able to sweat and jam out to our favorite tunes like everybody else?  

As you know, we love working out to good music and you've asked us to share our playlist so you can jam out during your workouts at home. (Or you could play it during one of our Insta-live sessions!)

Here's last week's Signature playlist. Come to class so you don't miss what we've cooked up this week!
