My name is Krystal Schouten. I am the Owner and Instructor of FamilyLife Fitness. FamilyLife Fitness was inspired by my two boys Henry and William. Fitness has always been a part of my life and I wanted to share my love of fitness with them. It all started with Fitness with Baby. After having my second son William, I wanted to include him in my workouts. I was already a trained CanFit Pro fitness instructor, so I decided to start a fitness class where moms could bring their baby and not have to worry about finding a babysitter. Popularity of Fitness with Baby grew so I decided to expand and offer classes like Fitness with Tots, Fitness with Fetus, personal and online training to help make it easy for moms to be active in pregnancy and beyond...covering all aspects of a growing family. Over the last 3 years I have expanded my knowledge of pre and post natal fitness to better understand how to train my clients who are pregnant and postpartum, by giving them safe and effective workouts to benefit their changing bodies and build strength for motherhood. I am certified in the following to help you exercise safely before and after pregnancy.
Bellies Inc. Core Confidence Specialist:
What is core breath? In a proper functioning core the breath is key. Learn how to better connect with your core in all exercises with core breath. I incorporate core breath into all my classes. Knowledge is power, I educate my class/clients of the importance of core breath and teach them about the core 4. I make it a point to inform my clients that after pregnancy we need to retrain our core (not go out and buy the AB 3000 DVD). The Bellies Inc. Core Confidence Couse gave me the confidence to teach my pre and post natal clients to exercise safely and understand their changing bodies in pregnancy and beyond.

One of my favourite things about FamilyLife Fitness is we aren't just a fitness class but a community where families can connect and make friendship to last a life time.
