AJ Axtell

Body Back and Stroller Strides Instructor and Marketing/Special Events Mama

Hi! I'm AJ Axtell, Instructor and Marketing Mama for FIT4MOM Twin Ports!

I have lived in Duluth's Lincoln Park Neighborhood since moving to Minnesota from Michigan in 2006. My husband, Nick, and I were married on the Vista Queen in 2011 and later welcomed our twins, Helmi and Iver, in 2015.

My profession is working as an Environmental Educator at WLSSD, but my passion is promoting a healthy lifestyle for myself, my family, and my community. FIT4MOM has been a critical part of my journey back to wellness and independence since becoming a mom. I enjoy sharing the many benefits of Stroller Strides, Run Club, Body Back, Stroller Barre, and Fit4Baby with Twin Ports moms!

Sometimes, mama needs a break too! Whether you are shamelessly putting the kids to bed an hour early, or neglecting your chore list (guilty!) we want to hear from Y O U! C O M M E N T below what show you are currently binge watching?

We LOVE to recognize the women in our community who work hard to take care of their bodies, so they can take care of their families. Today we are cheering for Daisy Cartier because her strength, soul, personality, and beauty say it all. Daisy, we are crushing on you! #MomCrushMonday

Remember to B R E A T H E, mama! During our classes, you will generally hear the instructor reminding you to B R E A T H E at least once during our exercises. Why? Breathing exercises can help with stress management and overall well-being. When practicing any breathing exercise, "always inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Keep your shoulders relaxed, and don't shrug them" (Google, 2017). Try this: fill and empty your lower lungs 8 to 10 times. Next, add the second step to your breathing: inhale first into your lower lungs as before, and then continue inhaling into your upper chest" (Google, 2017). Inhale, exhale, repeat. How do you feel?

!!! WEEKLY SCHEDULE !!! Check out all of the good times we have scheduled for this week! Everything from a fun playgroup with our friends Legacy Toys to learning how to braid your little's hair! Which classes are Y O U registering for this week?! Stay S T R O N G as we move forward on our last week of our competition mama's! <3
