Instructor Spotlight: Rebekah Murphy

It's that time again - Instructor Spotlight! And it's been too long! If you're one of our FIT4MOM members, you know we have an AMAZING group of instructors. We'd like to help you get to know them better - especially the ones who may teach at locations you don't normally attend!

This month, we're celebrating our very own Rebekah Henry Murphy. She is a rock star mama of two and a huge FIT4MOM loyalist. We love her for it! She teaches Barre and Strides, attends Body Well and is generally just a super solid presence in Our Village. Read on to learn more about the lovely Rebekah!

For how long have you been an instructor? Over two years.

Which FIT4MOM classes do you teach and where? Stroller Barre and Stroller Strides in Dunwoody.

What is your most favorite exercise? Anything HIIT!

Tell us about your family! John and I have been married nine years. He is a partner at a commercial real estate company and I volunteer actively in the community after a career in nonprofit leadership. We have two amazing children. Henry is 6 and is our little mathematician and engineering genius. He is a LEGO master and loves to build and create and discover how things work. Eleanor is my mini-me in many ways, but still her unique self. She is newly 3, is fiercely independent and opinionated but loving, sweet and extremely communicative. She loves ballet and dancing, art and music, and playing pretend. We also have a puppy who barks too much and an old cat that sleeps all day!

Introvert or Extrovert? Extrovert - ENTJ. Total long-range planner, strategic and logical.

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us! I’m a jack of all trades and master of none! It’s my plight in life. I am generally good at most things but not exceptional at one. I’m also your go-to woman in a moment of crisis. It takes a lot to fluster me.

Favorite Baby/Kid Product: Snacks! Couldn’t survive motherhood without them!

What's your most favorite food? I love all vegetables! My favorite cuisine is Mediterranean.

How did you find FIT4MOM? A Google search! I was an outdoor boot camp junkie and wanted to find a program geared towards moms. I joined in July 2016 and we would drive a good 30 minutes to class because it was 100% worth it. That’s a long trip for a cranky toddler!

What's your favorite thing about being a FIT4MOM Instructor? I love creating tough workouts to push our mamas. I know how strong and capable they are and they always step up and meet the challenge.

What does motherhood mean to you? The old adage that when you have a child you feel as if your heart is beating outside your body absolutely rings true for me. It is exhausting and frustrating but also joyful and astonishing. Motherhood forces you to care a lot less about things that used to be more important to you and focus on the things that matter more. So for me, motherhood is completeness and wholeness.
