Gina F

In the journey of life, Gina would choose a boat to traverse the days of her life. Boating for her is analogous with the way we choose to ride the waves of each passing day and how we weave in and out of the wakes of others. Gina grew up the youngest of 10 children in Indiana and boating on Lake Monroe in Southern Indiana with her family was a staple activity of every summer weekend. The mountains of Colorado seemed a good tradeoff for the Indiana lakes and cornfields, and she blazed a trail West after graduating from Indiana University. In Colorado, she has spent the last 20 years establishing herself as an expert in the local fitness industry as a personal trainer, Yoga teacher and Fitness Director at two parks and recreation agencies. Her marriage to her artist husband in 2003 stoked her creative fires and with the birth of each of her 3 children (ages 12, 7 and 5), she discovered her own innate wisdom and power during pregnancy. Gina believes that a woman can be at her strongest and most aligned with her intuition during pregnancy. She desires to teach every pregnant woman how to navigate the waves of pregnancy with grace. This passion gave birth to her pre and postnatal education business, Power of Pregnancy . She currently certifies fitness professionals to teach and lead prenatal fitness classes and private sessions. In the next few years, she hopes that Power of Pregnancy will be a recognized brand of prenatal fitness classes.
