Ambassador Spotlight – Alyssa Serchia


by For Two Fitness

Hi there! I'm Alyssa - mom to 2 girls (2 & 4) with our 3rd on the way in March! I'm a Colorado girl at heart but currently live in South Texas where my husband coaches college football. I love getting outside (mountains OR beach!) and being active with my kiddos! I drink chocolate almond milk lattes every day and I'm really sick of cooking dinner for toddlers. 

I'm mostly a stay at home mom, but I do run a fitness business from home too! I teach Mommy Strong fitness classes in our community as well as a Mini Movers toddler class. I blog at www.iamstronglikemom.com where we share tips for getting active with kids - and I'm hosting our first ever #StrollerStrong Virtual Run in November! 

When I'm NOT pregnant, I love to run, but my pregnant body doesn't love it so much. My favorite pregnancy & postnatal workout is definitely walking. It's so good for the mind AND body. I also love to do yoga, and some low impact body weight strength. Erica Ziel has some of my favorite prenatal strength workouts! 

My fitness philosophy: Be stubborn about your goals, but flexible about your methods. As a mother, flexibility and creativity is KEY to success. Do what makes you feel good, not what you think you should be doing. Be active, be an example for your kids. 

A few interesting facts about me: 

  • I'm the oldest of 4 kids, 2 of which were adopted internationally. I got to travel to China as a teenage to pick up my baby sister and it was a life changing experience. 
  • I was a part of the state championship gymnastics team when I was a freshman, and it was my last season as a gymnast due to an injury. 
  • I'm really proud of the fact that I've come back after each of my two kids to train for and race at least 1 half marathon before getting pregnant again. Looks like I've gotta a find a late 2019 half to go for after #3! 
  • One day I will own an Airstream trailer to travel in, tailgate, and maybe even run my business out of.

    You can find me online at www.iamstronglikemom.com or on social media Instagram.com/iamstronglikemom and Facebook.com/iamstronglikemom. I love meeting and collaborating with other strong mamas! Be sure to check out our virtual stroller run - registration will open 9/27!
