We are honored to have some amazing For Two Fitness Fit Mom Ambassadors. Over the next few months, we will be featuring several of these ladies in an “Ambassador Spotlight” post so you can get to know them too!
Meet Maria Campbell!
What is the theme of your blog?
Tidbits from my life, the kitchen and everything in between.
How many kiddos do you have?
I have one daughter who will be two in August.
What do you do for a living?
I am a crew communications specialist in the Air National Guard.
What is your favorite fit pregnancy or postpartum workout?
While I was pregnant, I did a lot of zumba and kickboxing. My favorite postpartum workout was, and still is barre workouts. I credit getting my abs back in shape to taking classes at Barre Bee Fit.
What is your favorite food?
That’s a tough one, because I love all sorts of different foods. If I had to choose I’d say PIZZA! There are so many different varieties of pizza to choose from.
Do you have any hobbies?
Running! I have just signed up for my second marathon! I will be training for the Chicago marathon starting in June. This will be my second year in a row running the Chicago Marathon and I’m determined to beat my time!
Where is your favorite vacation destination?
I LOVE to travel and have had the opportunity to visit some very fun and interesting places. But my favorite “go-to” travel destination is Chicago. It’s about a two-hour drive from where I live. It’s the perfect city for a girls weekend, a mini getaway with the husband, or a perfect day trip with the family.
What other interesting facts would you like to share with our readers?
I met my husband in the military. He’s in Security Forces. While we are both in the Air Force full-time, we are lucky that will never have to worry about moving around to different bases, we will stay put in Milwaukee, WI. The first race I ever signed up for was a 10k. I fell in love with running shortly after I moved to Chicago. My then boyfriend (now husband) had just deployed to Afghanistan and I needed an outlet to clear my head. Running is the best way to explore a new city!
