Top Mom Fitness Instructors That Are Crushing It

Wading through the many fitness blogs out there can be exhausting, not to mention counterproductive. Whether you want to build strength, gain endurance, or lose that baby weight, these moms will leave you feeling motivated and excited for your next workout. 

Amanda Kloots

You probably know Amanda Kloots as the wife of Broadway star Tony Cordero, who tragically lost his life to COVID-19 in July 2020. Just like her husband, Amanda Kloots is a fighter. Her bravery and positivity are an inspiration to the world. 


What you might not know is that Amanda is a former Radio City Rockette and Broadway dancer. She also has her own fitness methods: AK! Rope, AK! Dance, and AK! Body. Each of these methods offers high-energy, full-body, fun workouts to keep your workouts enjoyable and consistent. Amanda uses minimal equipment – a jump rope is all you need – and her workouts feature dance and cross-training methods. Who knows, your kids might even want to join in!

Melissa Wood

Melissa Wood’s website, Melissa Wood Health, is full of information and resources for anyone who wants to get in shape physically and emotionally. As a mom of two, Melissa’s mission is to help moms enjoy their workouts and achieve a sense of inner peace. Who doesn’t need that these days?


Melissa’s method, called the MWH method, utilizes a combination of low-impact workouts, Pilates, yoga, and meditation to achieve long, lean lines and a peaceful mind.

Looking for something a bit more sweaty? Check out Kayla Itsines and her website, Sweat. Kayla is the creator of the mega-popular app, Sweat with Kayla, and has been helping moms get in shape post-baby for almost a decade.
