ACE Group Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer

SAN MARCOS, CA

ACE Profiles |  Farel Hruska

After being in the fitness industry for almost 15, I became a mom and it rocked my world! I had never been happier and yet, I felt my personal definition or identity had drifted away. I had a preconceived notion that motherhood would be seamless for me... that my life would still move along with me at the helm. I quickly realized that my energy and attention would not be on me first and I had to figure out how to navigate both. Then came baby #2 and then #3.

Motherhood has taught me (and continues to) so many valuable lessons. The role of "mom" is such a pivotal influence to those around her. Because of that profound realization, my training emphasis made a big shift towards pre/postnatal fitness. I am the trainer for moms of any age. They carry so much and so many depend on them, if I can help create a strong, confident, happy individual then I feel she can do the same for those around her!
